Guide Price £795,000

Property Details

Location Mill House is a handsome Georgian property in a delightful position on the banks of the River Waveney set along a no through lane within just a small cluster of three houses. Beyond Mill House there are water meadows and the large areas of Weybread lakes ideal for a spot of fishing or boating. This house has a very rural feel and yet the historic town of Harleston, with its picturesque high street, lies a mile or so away just over the county border in Norfolk and provides an excellent range of day to day facilities to complement those at nearby Diss (9 miles) which includes a mainline rail station on the Norwich to Liverpool Street Station where journeys to the capital take about 90 minutes. The A140, which bypasses Diss, links to the country's main road network, whilst the A143, which bypasses Harleston, links to Beccles, Bungay and beyond to the Suffolk Coast.

This is a house which combines an attractive rural setting with ease of access to the wider world.

The Property Mill House is a classically styled late 18th century Georgian house in a delightful position on the banks of the River Waveney. It stands proud with its attractive mellow red brick under a slate roof with steps leading up to an elegant door casement on Ionic columns with the original leaded glass fanlight.

The hall runs from front to back and there is a lovely inner hall where the traditional wide winding staircase leads past a tall arched window to the large landing. There are three reception rooms each with fireplaces and the front two have shuttered windows. The present owner has done much to preserve the original character whilst adding some modern touches and made it a very comfortable family home. The kitchen has room for a good size table and an early 1950's oil fired Aga - ideal to take off the winter chill.

The first floor has a large central landing leading off to four spacious bedrooms, a study or dressing room, bathroom and a shower room.

The Annex and Outbuildings The annex has been created from part of the range of outbuildings which form a courtyard at the rear of the house. This area is ideal for those with an extended family or who like to entertain but would equally well suit those looking to work from home.

In addition to the annex there are still further outbuildings including the garage, a utility, greenhouse and stores.

Outside The setting for Mill House is undoubtedly one of the property's outstanding features with delightful garden walks along the banks of the river, mill pond and race. There are areas of formal garden, a patio and a field. The grounds have been let go to a certain extent in recent years and in many ways now offer a blank canvas for the keen gardener to create their own masterpiece. Overall the property is set within 3.90ac
