This striking Grade II listed former mill house offers a huge amount of genuine character and charm, especially in the dining room and master bedroom, where much of the originall mill machinery has been renovated to provide striking decorative features and a wonderful talking point.
The accommodation has so much character, it offers plenty of space and it has a gorgeous farmhouse' style kitchen / dining room, with an Aga Masterchef range cooker, a useful study, a lovely dining room with French doors opening into the garden, a large sitting room with an open fire, a useful utility room and a ground floor shower room and loo. On the first floor are four large bedrooms (the master with large built-in wardrobes and an ensuite), plus a traditional family bathroom with separate bath and shower. Additionally, an oak staircase leads up into a very large loft which has so much further potential.
Old Manor Mill is situated in some of the prettiest, south-facing cottage gardens we've seen for some time. They provide a surprising degree of privacy, and combined with the sound of water from the old mill race, you'd be hard-pushed to believe that you were so close to the heart of the town. The gardens themselves have a lawn, a kitchen garden with workshop and wood store, a paved patio area, decking, two small ponds (one stocked with goldfish) and a gorgeous sunken garden with a further, larger pond. Some of the water features are fed by the mill race, which falls from height over the old water wheel. The gardens are filled with mature trees and plants, including a lovely Wisteria and an impressive cherry blossom tree. The main parking area offers plenty of space for several vehicles and provides access to a substantial garage/workshop.
The historic town of Honiton is a busy local centre, offering all the usual shopping, commercial and recreational facilities, along with excellent access to the A30 (and on to the M5 at Exeter). There is a mainline train station (Waterloo line) in the town (approx. 550m), the local surgery and hospital (approx. 250m) and a local primary school (approx. 150m).
