This delightful and immensely characterful Georgian Grade II listed family home is believed to have originally been part of the former Mill with its stone and Flemish bond brick exterior elevations under a natural slate roof with particularly fine large sash windows to the front. The interior exhibits the charm and character of the era. Oil central heating is incorporated with the ground floor offering a fine through lounge, separate dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, study/home office and useful utility/boiler room with W.C. The pretty staircase leads to four double bedrooms and a family bathroom, whilst the skilful remodelling of the attic space provides a tranquil haven, previously used as an artist’s studio, but well suited to sleepovers, etc. The rear garden enjoys immense privacy, with the small leat meandering through. An early inspection is recommended to those seeking a highly individual semi-detached home of character in a hamlet setting within Uffculme School catchment.
