A beautiful former mill house, set in a large and surprisingly private plot within walking distance of the main amenities of the popular East Devon market town of Honiton.
This striking Grade II listed former mill house offers a huge amount of genuine character and charm, especially in areas such as the dining room and master bedroom, where some of the substantial mill workings have been renovated provide striking decorative features and a wonderful talking point.
The accommodation is bursting with inherent character, offers plenty of space and is comprised of a gorgeous 'farmhouse' style kitchen / dining room, with an Aga Masterchef range cooker, a useful study, a lovely dining room with French doors into the garden, a large sitting room with an open fire, a utility room and a ground floor shower room / wc.
On the first floor are four large bedrooms (the master with large built-in wardrobes and an ensuite), plus a traditional family bathroom with separate bath and shower. Additionally, an oak staircase leads up into a very large loft which offers a great deal of further potential.
Old Manor Mill is situated within some of the prettiest, south-facing cottage gardens we have seen for some time and with the surprisingly large amount of privacy they provide, combined with the sound of water from the old mill race, you would be hard-pushed to believe that you were so close to the heart of the town and its facilities.
The gardens themselves are comprised of a lawn, a vegetable area with workshop and wood store, a paved patio area, decking, two small ponds (one stocked with goldfish) and a gorgeous sunken garden with a further, larger pond and water features that are fed by the mill race, which falls from height over the old water wheel. The gardens are filled with mature trees and plants, including a lovely wisteria and an impressive cherry blossom tree. The main parking area offers plenty of space for several vehicles and provides access to a substantial garage/workshop.
The historic town of Honiton is a busy local centre, offering all the usual shopping, commercial and recreational facilities, along with excellent access to the A30 (and on to the M5 at Exeter). There is a mainline train station (Waterloo line) in the town (approx. 550m), the local surgery and hospital (approx. 250m) and a local primary school (approx. 150m).
