Property Description

Midmills House sits within grounds of around 1.3 acres with truly stunning and beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the property on all sides. Twin automatic wrought iron gates lead onto the gravelled driveway which opens to an extensive parking area and double open bay cart lodge 21’7 x 18’11 with adjoining workshop/garden store to one side and covered log store to the other. The lawns sweep around the property, extending to the front, side and rear, all well-screened by mature planting and hedgerow, featuring numerous flower beds and borders well stocked with a variety of plants and shrubs. There is a feature timber pergola leading to another area of garden behind a flint wall, where there are trees and wildflowers. Adjoining the property on three sides is a large paved terrace. At the rear it is bordered by a low brick wall with steps leading to the lawn. The rear terrace faces west taking full advantage of the beautiful aspect across the gardens and to open countryside beyond, creating a perfect space for outdoor entertaining.

Midmills House is an exceptional country home of individual style and character, set within around 1.3 acres of beautifully landscaped and maintained grounds enjoying stunning views over surrounding open countryside. The property has undergone considerable improvements, extension and re-modelling during the current owners time of occupation and is now a house which provides spacious and versatile living space, beautifully decorated throughout helping to create a bright and airy internal space. The front door opens into an entrance vestibule which in turn leads to the entrance hall which is vaulted through to first floor level and has two Velux windows overhead, drawing in natural light. There is a cloakroom to one side and a door opening to an inner hall with full height windows to the front, storage cupboard and door to the family room which features a window and glazed double doors opening to and overlooking the rear gardens, beyond which are superb countryside views.

The principal sitting room is a beautifully proportioned room with window to the side and glazed double doors with matching side panels to the rear, again with views across the garden and countryside beyond. This room features a stove set on a tiled hearth, glazed door opens to a garden room with a door to the outside. Glazed bi-fold doors open to an impressive kitchen/breakfast room which when fully open, create a superb open plan reception area perfect for entertaining.

An adjacent utility room has further storage cupboards, an integral fridge/freezer and worktops with space for a tumble dryer and washing machine with a part glazed door to the outside.
