Steeped in local history Mill House sits in a large garden plot of approximately 1.15 acres with a long private driveway entrance. The property occupies a delightful position abutting open countryside and dates back as far as circa 1740 where it is understood that a windmill sat on the site from this time until 1930's. Today, this property represents an outstanding and extremely rare opportunity to acquire a character building having undergone extensive improvements and with a large contemporary extension to the side giving this property great potential as a family home.

The property has had planning permission passed for the extension which has been carried out so far by specialist local builders under APPLICATION NO - P/22/1439/2. Each aspect has been signed off by the Building Inspector so far.

The mill ceased to be a working mill in 1910 and the windmill itself was dismantled circa 1930's.

The garden is particularly extensive with a vast array of shrubs, plants, trees, grassed areas and wonderful views over open countryside. The driveway was due to continue in front of the property itself where there is a derelict field shelter currently on the edge of the plot.
