Mildenham Mill provides an exciting opportunity to own a piece of history.

The house was once the Miller's house, understood to date back to 1630, with 19th and 20th century alterations and extensions. The former corn mill building is thought to date back to the mid 18th century and is said to be the most important mill site on the Salwarpe system. It is understood that it is almost certainly the site of one of the mills listed in the Domesday Survey of 1086. The mill is believed to be the best preserved mill on the Salwapre being complete with its two waterwheels and all machinery. The mill was known locally as "Bill's Mill " due to long period of ownership by the Bill family. It is believed to have gone out of use in the late 1940s but was restored to working order by Dennis Watts, a previous owner, in the 1960s. The current owners have lived in the property for about 45 years.

"Back in the 1920s, grain arrived in 10-ton trucks at the local railway stations as well as coming by horse drays from local farms. Many farmers visited our mill weekly, bringing their grain to be milled." (Miller's tale of family life at Mildenham - Denis Watts).

The Grade II listed detached former Miller's house offers extensive accommodation over two floors with generous size living space and beautiful character features.

The Entrance Hall, with WC and cloakroom off, leads to a large split-level Inner Hall with a feature timber framed staircase sitting proudly in the centre. The Inner Hall provides plenty of space for a study and quiet seating area. Off the hall lies the dining room, the open fireplace forms the central feature of the room.

Steps from the Inner Hall lead down to the L shape Kitchen/Family Breakfast Room with fitted wall and base units with a matching central island and a handy walk in pantry. The appliances include a Rangemaster Cooker. Steps lead down to the dining area with useful storage cupboard off. A separate Utility Room has plumbing in place for a washing machine and dryer.

Accessed off the hall, steps lead down to the Sitting Room with an impressive open fireplace. The retained timber beams create that distinguished country feel. French Windows lead to a brick and flagstone patio area perfect for alfresco dining next to the river.

The first floor, across a split-level landing, houses four bedrooms, each of the rooms offers good proportions and enjoy pleasant views over the gardens and grounds. The spacious Master Suite benefits from a large range of fitted wardrobes and a generous ensuite with WC, pedestal wash hand basin, corner shower unit and bath.

Also on the first floor is the family Bathroom equipped with WC, vanity unit and corner shower unit.

The property benefits from a painted brick and tile barn conversion which provides ancillary accommodation known as Mill Cottage.

Mill Cottage has been used for family accommodation and as a holiday let since it was converted in the 1980s.

The front door leads to an open plan Living Room and Kitchen with a large bay window letting in lots of light. The Kitchen is fitted with a range of base and wall units and a high back pine settle styled bench provides a cosy dining area. A central staircase leads to the first floor with two Bedrooms and a Bathroom. Lovely exposed ceiling timbers are featured through out the property.

The Grade II listed former Mill building has immense character and romance over its three floors with exposed beams, heavy structural timbers and restored mill gearing. The Mill wheels still stand at either end of the building and sluice gates allow water to pass into the attractive mill pond below.

This historic piece of industry is left very much untouched but offers huge potential for alternative uses (subject to the necessary consents).

Mildenham Mill benefits from a traditional brick and tile outbuilding comprising of a garage/store with two loose boxes. There is also a two-bay steel portal frame former cattle building and a three bay steel and timber framed general purpose barn.

The gardens and grounds are simply stunning with views of the rolling countryside.

The split level landscaped lawned garden has mature trees and shrubbery borders and there is a small traditional orchard area tucked behind a beech hedge with a brick base greenhouse and dilapidated summer house. To the rear of the property there is a further lawned garden with tree and shrubbery borders enjoying views across the pastureland.

The River Salwarpe meanders through the grounds creating a network of islands and bridge crossing. The Droitwich canal borders the land to the south.

Beyond the immediate gardens there are paddocks, divided into convenient size enclosures, and all lying within a ring fence. These provide grazing land or simply amenity space to enjoy walks along the river bank.

In all the property is set within approximately 10.93 acres (4.42 ha).

There is an additional parcel of pasture land extending to approximately 2.26 acres (0.92ha) available by separate negotiation, shown green on the enclosed plan.

The property is freehold with the exception of the part of the property shown hatched red on the enclosed plan which is understood to be leasehold with a 99 year lease from 1973. Vacant possession will be available on completion.
