DESCRIPTION Positioned on the banks of the River Avon within a picturesque rural setting on the edge of desirable village of Lower Seagry, The Mill Cottage is a fascinating detached former Mill Keepers home set within 3.16 acres of beautiful gardens with a mill stream, paddocks and a tennis court. The elegantly presented cottage plus its grounds are very charming and quintessentially English. The whole could easily depict a setting for a romantic novel. The cottage offers well-proportioned accommodation over three floors extending to 3,253 sq.ft and whilst well presented, offers great scope for further improvements, updating and extension (subject to planning). The ground floor has an excellent layout including two sitting rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, formal dining room and a large garden room featuring a magnificent fig tree. In addition, there is also a boot room, utility room and a downstairs cloakroom. The three reception rooms all feature stone carved fireplaces. Upstairs and on the first floor, there are four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The main bedroom is arranged as a principal suite with an adjoining dressing room and bathroom. The main bedroom also has the benefit of a balcony overlooking the private grounds. On the top floor there is a further attic bedroom with exposed beams. The cottage is hidden down a long driveway which serves only one other property. A gravelled driveway provides ample private parking and a turning circle, whilst there a range of outbuildings including a garage, store and former kennels. The grounds are predominately arranged to the rear of the property and across the mill stream accessed by a footbridge. The formal gardens have been meticulously well-looked after with lawns, hedging and vibrant borders. The full-sized tennis court is positioned beside one of the paddocks and a small copse. Across the steam, there is a further paddock which borders the River Avon. The property has the benefit of Riparian Rights on the river. There are many footpaths leading through the surrounding countryside to explore straight from the doorstep.
