Millhayes is an exceptional, sensitively converted and modernised former water mill providing over 5,000 sq. ft. of light filled flexible accommodation. The property also has the benefit of a detached annexe with adjoining office space, extending to almost 1,200 sq. ft. This provides excellent additional accommodation for guests or could potentially be used to provide an income via letting.
Millhayes combines the amenities of modern living with appealing retained period features including exposed beams and fireplaces. The reception rooms comprise a large sitting room with a fireplace and French doors leading to front and rear aspect exterior seating areas; a wonderful double height dining room with patio doors to the garden; as well as a drawing room with a large exposed brick fireplace, featuring a bread oven and wood burner. There is also a fabulous 32ft. games room with a corner fireplace, bar, full-height glazing and bifold doors which lead to a terrace, creating the perfect seamless inside/outside entertaining space. The kitchen/breakfast room lies at the heart of the home and provides a range of stylish units with a large central island, breakfast bar, solid wood worktops, an AGA, walk-in larder and a neighbouring utility room with modern integrated appliances. Accessible from a staircase from the inner hall, the living accommodation is completed by a large gym, study and family bathroom on the third floor, which would also be suitable for use as a self contained suite if required.
The main staircase in the reception hall rises to the second floor where there is a large principal bedroom with built-in storage and a contemporary en suite shower room with twin sinks. There are two additional well proportioned bedrooms and a modern family bathroom with a freestanding bath on this floor.
The propertys four remaining spacious bedrooms are on the first floor, two with en suite bathrooms, as well as a further family shower room.
This property has 2.2 acres of land.
Millhayes is approached over a private driveway leading to garage with an adjoining garden store, and to a detached one bedroom annexe. This building has an adjoining office with a store room, offering potential for conversion to a larger annexe if required, subject to the purchaser obtaining the relevant planning consents.
The outstanding landscaped gardens extend to approximately 2.2 acres in total and are a particular feature of this property. There are extensive areas of level lawn, numerous seating areas and paved terraces, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, and a wide selection of established trees, shrubs and borders flanking the old mill race which feeds the beautiful lake to the rear of the property, overlooked by an all-weather tennis court. The lake is well stocked with carp and tench.
