Full property description

A grand four-bedroom Georgian detached residence, with a self-contained annexe, a detached garage and flint stone workshop, set within a generous and secluded 0.30 acre plot, in the pretty village of Petham. Mill house dates back to 1820 has seen numerous improvements in recent years and combines modern, well-appointed accommodation with elegant period features.

The property is entered via an attractive brick entrance porch, with beautiful decorative floor tiles and a handsome front door. From here, the door opens into a spectacular reception hall, with a beautiful staircase that retains an original balustrade.

To the left there is a splendid sitting room with wood burning stove, rich wood flooring and two sliding sash UPVC windows which are beautiful replicas of the original design.

At the rear of the property there is an open plan family living area with solid oak flooring, and French doors to the patio. This space incorporates a casual seating area that is arranged around a contemporary wood burning stove and flows directly onto the kitchen diner.

The high gloss kitchen has been intelligently designed by the owner himself and perfectly integrates a double oven, wine cooler, fridge freezer and a floor to ceiling larder. The curved lines, stylish ceramic tiles and quartz work top add another depth of elegance to this lovely cooking space. The kitchen is further complemented by a utility room adjacent to the kitchen and offers access to the garden, garage, and workshop.

A dry tanked cellar and convenient cloak room is accessible from the main family room.

The stairs ascend to the first floor where one will find an elegant galleried landing with panelled walls. This leads to four generously proportioned bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. The main bedroom is particularly large with bespoke wardrobes and a luxuriously appointed ensuite shower room.


To the right of the hallway a door leads to a one-bedroom annexe with a well-equipped kitchen and walk in shower room. The annexe benefits from its own entrance at the front and the reception room leads to its own section of the garden. This part of the building is perfect for an elderly relative to live independently or would work very well as a holiday let.


Mill House offers a third of an acre of beautifully manicured and well-kept gardens that are a credit to the current owners who has cleverly landscaped this private and peaceful space. An array of established trees creates some division between the area with several vegetable patches to the rear of the garden. The patio wraps around the whole house and offers several seating areas, this is also accessible from the annexe.


To the left of the property there is a double detached garage with pitched roof that provides additional storage via a pull-down ladder. The flint house, which used to be the old grain store is the perfect addition to the garage and is currently used as a workshop.
