It really is of no surprise The Times prestigious accolade of the prettiest house in Wiltshire has previously beenawarded to this property. Rebuilt at the beginning of the 20th Century, the striking Edwardian fac¸ade sits perfectly with the adjoining stone of the original miller's cottage which has stood on the site since the mid 1800's.

An impressive vaulted drawing room and its Gothic style French windows open directly onto extensive terracing and mill race whilst a separate family room also enjoys a superb river aspect.

The stunning kitchen/breakfast/family room provides fantastic 'live in' style space whilst playing host to exquisite Chalon hand crafted cabinetry. Widely recognised as one of the finest available, the bespoke design of a distinctive freestanding concept incorporates a four oven AGA and circular island forming very much the centre piece of the room and dividing the sitting area.

Two separate cloak rooms complete theground floor accessed from each of the reception halls.

The first floor accommodation includes a lovely master bedroom suite with adjacent dressing room, shower room and separate bathroom centring on a superb Victoria and Albert free standing bath.

Extensive terracing provides excellententertaining and relaxing areas. A newlyrenovated bridge leads over the mill stream to an enchanting mill pool with additional lawns together with a wonderful treelined walk along the banks of the river.

A newly constructed raised deck suspended over the river provides a breathtaking place to enjoy the unique situation and which forms part of an earlier planning application to alter the existing adjacent brick store and adding a pavilion style outbuilding. In addition planning permission has also been granted within this application to demolish a brick retaining wall and construct a triple car port and swimming pool with changing and shower facility on the western elevation (Planning Reference S/2012/1294).
