Of period origins, Mill House occupies a delightful position with views over its gardens and grounds, flanked by a lake and former water cress beds. Constructed of green sandstone under a clay tile roof, the accommodation is sensibly configured although now in need of modernising. The opportunity exists (subject to planning) to reconfigure and very possibly extend the property; the double garage for example could be integrated into the principal accommodation and extended at first floor level. Properties in a position such as this are few and far between and offer an exciting opportunity to create a very special family house in the most delightful setting. The property is approached off the lane into a tarmac drive leading into a gravelled forecourt which sweeps around to the back of the property into a large car parking and turning area adjoining which is the double garage. The gardens extend around the property and are laid principally to lawn with a lake and spring fed watercress beds; these are flanked by a wide variety of mature trees including weeping willow, tulip tree, ginko, liquid amber, ash and a variety of mature coniferous trees. A lawned pathway runs around the entire garden; there is a screened footpath which runs along the eastern side of the property. The gardens and grounds to extend to approximately 3.3 acres. Additional land may be available by separate negotiation. Mill house is situated within walking distance of the thriving village of Ludwell with a butcher, pub and excellent village stores. The Donhead's, (St Andrew and St Mary) are nearby with an active community with many clubs and societies, two churches and another excellent pub, The Forester. Otherwise for everyday needs, the Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury has a good range of shops, a boutique hotel, a weekly local market, churches, a health centre, a dentist, a small hospital, a veterinary surgery, a library and arts centre. For more sophisticated shopping and recreational facilities there is the Cathedral city of Salisbury to the east and Bath to the north west. Nearby Tisbury has a mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo, and the A303, approximately 6 miles to the north, gives access to the south west and London via the M3.
