About this property

A substantial 6 bedroom Grade II listed south facing converted barn with fabulous character features, wonderful views, outbuildings and lovely spring fed millpond. No EPC required.

Fabulous views and a marvellous south facing rural position are particular features of this substantial 6 bedroom Grade II listed barn conversion with a magnificent spring fed Millpond and with outbuildings and garage situated in a charming countryside setting.

The Millpond, a substantial spacious attached 6 bedroom residence built c. 1870 and converted in 2000, is set in a glorious position with far-reaching rural views and looking out over its south facing garden. A real feature of the property is the private south facing garden and large millpond, 60 ft (18.29m) x 46 ft (14.02m). The property is beautifully presented with many character features including sealed pine floorboards and windows with deep rustic timber sills. The kitchen/dining room with its 4 oven Aga is a marvellous room for entertaining opening, as it does, to the large terrace overlooking the pond. Above this is the huge main bedroom with its large en-suite bathroom both having lovely views. The plot is in just under 2 acres and set around a central courtyard in a charming countryside position with double garage, outbuildings and guest parking in the hamlet of Combe.
