Previously owned by Christchurch College and then by a local farming family, the house has recently undergone a sympathetic and substantial restoration programme. Care has been taken to maintain the property’s integrity and wealth of period features and original mill workings, whilst introducing modern day facilities and fittings.The house is of part stone and part rendered construction under part slate and part tile roofs. Period features include the mill stones, gearing, elevators, grain loft, mill wheel, deep window boards, exposed stonework, exposed timbers, flagstone floors, open fireplace, balconies.Newly installed kitchens and bath/shower rooms to both the main house and annexe bring this house firmly into the 21st century. Of note is the kitchen to the main house with window seats, inglenook fireplace/cooker space and panelled family bathroom with wooden flooring. An eye to storage has also been heeded with extensive storage found in many of the rooms.The integral two bedroom cottage allows the house to become six bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms, or to provide granny/staff annexe or income stream. Useful range of traditional thatched outbuildings comprise the Stable Block with three bay garage and offices over; the Garden Block with further garaging, storage, workshop and art studio over with glazed eastern elevation overlooking the mill stream and Cherwell Valley beyond.
