DESCRIPTION

Tracey Mill is a fascinating 17th century Mill House with the rustic charm of a restored working watermill. Whilst not in commercial use since the 1960s, the wheel, associated gears and workings are still operational and make a captivating and romantic focal point being carefully incorporated into the ground and first floor living spaces.

 

With a supply of fresh water via the mill leat, a former use of the property was that of a trout farm with a number of feature ponds below the original mill pond within the mature gardens. A single storey projection from the mill houses a useful and versatile range of garaging/workshops extending the total area of the whole to some 4,500 square feet.

 

The accommodation is bursting with features and contains the following:

  Versatile range of garaging/ workshops

  Kitchen/ Breakfast Room with Aga

  Sitting Room with inglenook fireplace

  Reception/ Dining Room with exposed stone walls, beamed ceiling and original mill features

  The Wheelhouse is still home to the water wheel

  Utility Area with Sauna, Cloakroom and Study/ Office

  3 First Floor Bedrooms with en suite (including Master Suite with spa bath and walk in closet)

  Further 2 Bedrooms with Jack and Jill Bathroom

  Loft with large, high vaulted roof space

 

From the kitchen, steps and a panelled door open into the mill and the original 'machinery' floor, a room of immense character and romance with exposed beams, heavy structural timbers and the restored mill gearing including the wallower, pit and spur wheels. This historic piece of industry has been incorporated into an adjoining reception/dining room with exposed stone walls and beamed ceiling. This area also provides a link from the main house and mill to the workshop/garage space.

OUTSIDE

Double gates give access to a paved courtyard with parking for several vehicles to the side of the house Attached to the Mill is a single storey stone faced outbuilding housing two workshops, two utility work rooms and a sliding internal door to a large garage, itself with external up and over door. Double timber doors open from the rear of one of the workshops onto a timber bridge which crosses the mill pond to the mature rear garden, laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs surrounding the former trout ponds. A gravel footpath provides an attractive walk around the pond and beside the mill leat with various sluices and a small waterfall.

 

A pathway from the principal gardens and grounds leads alongside the mill pond past the Wheel Room and across the mill race into further gardens to the West of the house. These incorporate a generous block paved terrace, bordered by mature trees, hedgerow and the fenced Mill Race.
