Hamper Mill House forms part of the original Hamper Mill with the former Mill and cottages. This family home offers views over the river, lakes and has its own river frontage in the rear gardens.
The property is well presented boasting a wealth of character, a viewing is essential to appreciate the wonderful features that include high ceilings, exposed wooden floors, beautiful open fireplaces and original panelling and shutters. The accommodation of the main home is certainly unique but very versatile and briefly comprises: A formal entrance hallway, dining room with open fireplace and river views, drawing room with open fireplace, cloakroom, a truly individual kitchen/breakfast room with feature fireplace and access to the gardens. The basement floor enjoys two reception areas, currently used as a family room with a wood burning stove and an excellent study, along with a kitchen and shower room so the area could also be used as a self contained flat. Up on the first floor there is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room and one further double bedroom.
Detached from the house is a two story 2200 sq ft outbuilding, the first floor housing a completely self contained one bedroom annexe that has been refurbished to provide a modern and luxurious apartment; with a bright kitchen/dining area, stairs to the vaulted living room with distressed flooring, floor to ceiling windows with double doors leading out to a private terrace. Furthermore there is a large double bedroom and a stunning bathroom. This is ideal for a rental opportunity if not being used as guest accommodation.
On the ground floor of the outbuilding is ample opportunity for more development (STPP) with three work shops and two open stores.
