4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Sowerbys are delighted to present 'The Old Mill', situated centrally within the village of Honingham within the heart of Norfolk, with the River Tud running along the south western boundary, attracting an array of different wildlife.
The property is a former miller's house; a timber framed mill once stood on the west side of the house and was dismantled in 1966, and parts of the property are believed to date from the 1700s. The house is of solid brick construction, painted white under a pantile roof. Set back from the road, the plot is surrounded by a combination of brick walls and wrought iron fencing, with a central stone pathway leading to the front door and side access into the gardens. The gated vehicular entrance is found on Mill Lane and gives access to a generous parking area and a double bay cart shed.
The accommodation is well appointed with charm and fitting character features throughout. The reception hallway is fitted with Georgian panelling complemented by exposed wooden flooring, stairs rise to the first floor landing which has a fitted storage cupboard, and there is a downstairs cloakroom. The sitting room, a stunning formal room, features further Georgian panelling, a wonderful multi-fuel burning stove with intricate surround, decorative cornicing and a ceiling rose, whilst large sash windows to both the front and side elevations allow natural light to filter into the room whilst also offering pretty views out over the walled gardens. Continuing further into the property, the dining room is another fabulous room, the focal point being its beautiful marble fireplace, and this is complemented by decorative cornicing and picture rail, whilst a window offers pretty views out over the terrace, gardens and river.
A door leads from the dining room into the garden room which wraps around the eastern and southern parts of The Old Mill and offers beautiful views out over the walled gardens; it also enjoys its own independent access out to the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room is located to the rear of the property, with french doors leading out to a fabulous south facing terrace. There is a superb central island, and kitchen cabinets can be found to three aspects, contrasting beautifully with the darker granite worksurfaces. Within the kitchen is an integrated dishwasher, a free-standing Stoves range with extractor hood above and stainless steel splashback, a double stainless steel sink and additional space for an American style fridge freezer. Furthermore, the utility room has timber cabinets, a butler sink and space for a washing machine. Pamment tiles can be found underfoot whilst a door offers external access out to the side of the property where there are stunning views over the river.
The principal suite is a real feature of the property; three sash windows offer pretty views out over the gardens and the village, whilst also providing plenty of natural light. Once again, a feature fireplace can be found to one wall with wood burner set within, whilst twin ceiling roses can be found above. A door to the rear corner of the room offers access through into the en-suite bathroom, complete with a Victoria and Albert roll-top bath, Thomas Crapper wash hand basin and high level WC, and not forgetting the timber panelled walls.
Bedroom two is another wonderful size room, with twin sash windows to the rear elevation and a wrought iron fireplace to the far wall. Again, this room, and the remaining two bedrooms, enjoy wonderful views over the river and gardens. The family bathroom has a three piece suite, which includes an overhead shower above the bath, which contrasts beautifully with the natural stone coloured tiles.
The Old Mill is set back from the road and is bordered from the street by a combination of brick walling and wrought iron fencing, with vehicular access from Mill Lane. A secure electric gated entrance opens onto a generous block paved area, where there is a double bay cart shed and parking space for many vehicles.
To the front of the property a central stone pathway leads to the front door and there is side access into the gardens. The majority of the rear garden is laid to lawn and is positioned to the south and east of the property, with a magnificent historic well on the east lawn, and an attractive high brick and flint wall to the eastern boundary. The walled garden contains planted beds to two aspects, along with a shingled pathway and a central circular shingled bed. A timber storage shed can be found just off the driveway, and mature laurel hedging offers a divide between the rear drive and gardens. Immediately to the rear of The Old Mill is a south facing terrace, from which there are steps down to lawned areas and the river, which acts as the western boundary. A professionally installed putting green provides excellent entertainment during barbecues and family gatherings. To the western side of the main residence is an additional terrace, accessed from both the front of the property and the utility room, and once again steps lead down to the banks of the river, and an area set out as vegetable plots.
There is a timber built external office with power, lighting and telephone connection, and this can be found to the corner of the garden using the river as its backdrop.
