The Old Mill House is a charming 5 bedroom detached grade II listed property conveniently located for Sturminster Newton town centre. The property offers a wealth of character and charm with many parts dating back to the 17th century. The house is set in grounds of just over one acre of well stocked gardens, range of outbuildings and ample parking. Whilst the house appears to be in reasonable condition it does offer enormous potential for updating and improving.
The house has been extended over the years and now offers a labyrinth of rooms accessed via a central hallway. The drawing room is situated at the front of the house and is dual aspect with French doors leading directly onto the rear courtyard and gardens beyond. In the sitting room which is also dual aspect there are 2 open fireplaces, one of which is a deep inglenook with oak Bessemer over.
The hallway follows round and down a couple of steps leading to the kitchen which benefits from a 4 oven Aga and large walk in pantry. Beyond the kitchen there is a dining room, study and utility room. In addition there is also a cloakroom and boiler room on the ground floor.
The first floor is on 2 levels and can be accessed via 2 separate staircases. The master bedroom is triple aspect and has far reaching views across the garden with the benefit of a large en-suite bathroom. There are 3 further bedrooms and 3 bathrooms offering flexible accommodation.
To the left hand side of the property a pair of timber gates give access to a shingle driveway which in turn leads to an area suitable for parking and to the garage.
Attached to the house that is a small barn, garage and workshop all of which could be further developed if required (subject to LBC and PP).
The gardens are a true delight, filled with a multitude of mature specimen trees and well stocked inset herbaceous borders. Set to one side is a greenhouse being brickwork at the lower level with a timber frame above, there is also a timber potting shed and further down the garden a Summer House. The grounds extend to approximately one acre.
