Offers over £700,000 | 4 bedrooms | 1.3 acres

A stunning three storey converted mill situated in a marvellous location next to the river Teme on the England/Wales border, including fishing rights and approximately 1.3 acres of grounds. This impressive country home has been thoughtfully restored by the current owners having not been on the open market for over 30 years and it provides potential for further development if this is what a buyer desires. The character accommodation includes an abundance of charming and bespoke features which really do make this a truly individual property. The accommodation has great flexibility with how it can be used currently providing on the ground floor porch, sitting room, breakfast room, side hall, shower room, the first floor has a kitchen, living room/bedroom, bathroom and a bedroom with two further bedrooms being on the second floor. There is the opportunity to further restore one end of the building to include the mill stones which is something our client had always hoped to do. In addition to the main house are a range of outbuildings which include a large timber clad outbuilding currently used for storage, a games room and potting shed and our clients advise there is planning permission in place for half of this building to be converted into residential annexe accommodation. Further outbuildings include a stone barn, an open fronted garage and a four bay open fronted barn. The whole site extends to about 1.3 acres in all which includes ample parking space, formal garden, vegetable garden and a small paddock suitable for grazing. A particular feature of this property is the stunning setting the property is situated in, adjoining the river Teme, with about 250 yards of river bank with fishing rights, and having marvellous views over the surrounding countryside. The property is about seven miles from the source of the river Teme. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this property.
