05 Dec Georgian Splendour On Old Mill Site
Orchards Estates, South Somerset’s award-winning estate agency, is thrilled to offer for sale Chudleigh Mill House, a beautiful Georgian home in the highly desirable Chudleigh Mill development, on the outskirts of Yeovil.
The development sits close to the River Yeo on the site of an historic mill named Pen Mill, which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Chudleigh Mill House is one of the buildings constructed on the site in the late 17th Century, when the water powered mill was used for processing animal feeds and corn. It was re-named Chudleigh Mill in 1920 after being acquired by Mr.Benjamin Chudleigh. The site was developed and the original 17th Century buildings converted into residential property in 2008.
Chudleigh Mill House is a handsome Georgian home of generous proportions, double fronted with multi-paned windows and tastefully draped in well-pruned foliage. Walking over the elegant brass plate step takes you into the entrance room, currently being used as the sitting room with exposed flagstones and solid wood flooring, as well as a feature fireplace. Behind this is an inner hallway opening into the country style kitchen, fitted with natural wood cabinetry and a butler’s sink, as well as an integrated dishwasher and the sweetest central island unit. There is also space for a range cooker with a large extractor above.
With its solid wood flooring, feature open fireplace and glazed French doors, the generous dining hall is a great entertaining space, currently used as a lounge/diner. From here, the conservatory is a lovely addition, which leads out into the garden.
Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms, two with charming fireplaces and the master en-suite, and the family bathroom fitted with a roll-top bath as well as a separate shower.
The garden, with its patio area, raised lawn and gated parking area, sits to the side of the property. There is also parking to the front.
