The Mill House is a truly unique property which incorporates a former windmill, believed to date from 1826. The mill lost its cap and sweeps (Sussex word for sails) in the 1870’s and fell into disrepair until the early 1970s, when the first house was attached. The property has been extended and improved over the years, with the current owners replacing a magnificent lead cap to the mill and cladding the exterior with cedar wood shingles.
Features of note include solid oak flooring throughout the main house, wood burning stoves in the sitting/dining room, family room and ground floor of the mill, stunning far reaching views across open countryside, the South Downs and south to the sea, with 360-degree views from all levels of the mill. The kitchen/breakfast room boasts a bespoke solid wood fitted kitchen with granite worktops and curved wall with painted brickwork where the house joins the mill. French doors give access to the Indian sand stone terrace from all the living areas as well as the master bedroom.
The property is approached via a long driveway to a 5 bar gate, which leads to a brick paved forecourt providing ample parking along with the garage. The separate studio, built around 2003, has bamboo flooring and underfloor heating to the main room and could be put to any number of uses including, subject to the usual consents, ancillary accommodation.
The gardens which surround the property are delightful, with areas of lawn, mature trees, raised flower borders, pond and an impressive vegetable and fruit garden. The pool has been thoughtfully sited in a “sunken” area of the terrace and has a retractable cover for year round use. A paddock with stable block, comprising 3 stables and feed store, complete this idyllic lifestyle.
