Bedrooms: 5

Fascinating former mill with indoor pool and tennis court. Spacious living accommodation, 3 reception rooms and 4 bedrooms. Beautiful landscaped gardens and grounds, outbuildings and stabling. About 5.4 acres. EPC Band: E.

SITUATION

Chipley Mill occupies a delightful semi-rural location situated approximately 1 mile from Langford Budville with its church, primary school, public house and newly built community centre and 2 miles from the conservation village of Milverton. Wellington is within 2.5 miles of the property where an excellent selection of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities can be found together with easy access to the M5 motorway situated on the eastern outskirts of the town.

 

The County Town of Taunton is a further 7 miles east of here where an even greater selection of facilities can be found together with a main line rail link to London Paddington.

DESCRIPTION

Formerly the sawmill to the nearby Sanford Estate, which at one time owned a considerable amount of land in the area, Chipley Mill, with its attractive local sandstone elevations, has since been converted into a beautiful country home incorporating the intrinsic features of the original mill building. Furthermore, the surrounding gardens, landscaped and designed by David Wassell OBE, Chelsea Gold Medallist, and grounds emphasise the peaceful and idyllic surroundings.

 

The property was converted a number of years ago with many improvements during this time, however, there is plenty of opportunity for a new owner to alter the accommodation and utilise the space to their own specification.

ACCOMMODATION

The mill house incorporates the original mill workings and many other period features including exposed stonework and beamed ceilings. The accommodation is split level and approached on the first floor. It enjoys lovely views over the surrounding gardens and grounds and, in particular, the mill pond that adjoins. There are two separate staircases leading from the first floor to the ground floor.

 

The kitchen/breakfast room is sufficiently fitted, comprising Bosch double oven and ceramic hob, dishwasher, stainless steel Poggenpohl extractor and fridge freezer. There is a great reception space, including a large dining hall and drawing room with a further reception room on the ground floor opening into the conservatory.

 

There are four bedrooms in total, all with windows overlooking the beautiful gardens. The principal suite is arranged on the ground floor and includes a large en-suite bathroom and walk-in-wardrobe along with double doors leading to the garden. The second bedroom also has an en-suite and there is a separate family bathroom serving the further bedrooms.

 

The second staircase leads to a utility/boot room and study on the ground floor.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

Approached from a gravelled driveway, the focal entrance drive is adjoined by the beautiful columns of an original mill building and leads to the parking and turning area.

 

The lovely landscaped gardens have been planted with ease of maintenance in mind, with broad sweeps of lawns adjoined by herbaceous borders. There are a number of controllable water features present within the grounds, including the original mill leat, a stream and a flight pond.

 

Adjoining the parking area is a substantial double garage with workshop and an enclosed swimming pool and sauna room. There is a hard tennis court beyond.

 

Along the western side of the house, enjoying a separate approach, are some pasture paddocks and a small lake, all with post and rail fencing, ideal for those who wish to keep horses, ponies or a few head of stock or, equally, simply to enjoy the surroundings. There is a fully equipped stable block with two loose boxes, tack room and feed store and a further machinery store.

VIEWING
