In this much sought-after National Trust Downland Village, surrounded by 2 acres of Wisley designed landscaped garden, an impressive Arts & Crafts style country house with great potential for up-dating and re-modelling subject to the necessary consents.

Millstones House is believed to date from 1909 and is designed in an Arts & Crafts style, very reminiscent of the work of Charles Voysey. The name Millstones comes from part of a collection of millstones made by Mrs. Elsie Simpson who came to the house when it was built and lived there until her death in 1969. Some of the millstones can still be seen there today, including the massive pair of stones that stand either side of the wrought iron entrance gates.

The centrepiece of the house is an impressive vaulted reception hall with minstrel's gallery on three sides and large three quarter height windows which flood the room with natural light. Around the hall are three good reception rooms and a triple aspect conservatory facing south-west and east with doors on to the garden. To the west of the main reception rooms lie the kitchen/breakfast room with a service hall to the dining room and further domestic offices set around a small courtyard including a laundry room, utility room and walk-in pantry.

On the first floor, the gallery provides access to four bedrooms and two bathrooms including a principal bedroom with west-facing window bay enjoying far-reaching views over the gardens to the coastal plain beyond and there is a study/dressing room en-suite.

The entrance is flanked by attractive brick and flint walls and feature millstones with double gates opening on to a long gravelled driveway leading to an approach and parking area. Here there is a detached Marley double garage and a brick and tiled summerhouse with south-facing veranda.
The surrounding gardens provide a perfect setting for the house having been professionally landscaped by Wisley and set out on several levels with terraced lawns separated by ornamental walls, steps and pathways.

A south-facing terrace and veranda is approached by way of double doors from the conservatory with sweeping lawn beyond and stone steps leading down to a lower lawn with well-stocked flower beds and shrubs. A central paved walkway leads to a rose-covered pergola. To the south-east lies a vegetable garden and to the west a further path leads to a sunken garden with rhododendrons and impressive magnolia trees together with York stone terrace. A stone pathway leads to the west lawn planted with further mature trees and shrubs. In all gardens and grounds extend to approximately 2.5 acres.
