This elegant country house is believed to have parts of it dating back to the 18th Century with an extension in the 1950s. The front door opens on to a grand reception hall with high ceilings and a handsome staircase. A set of double doors lead through to a good-sized drawing room with a pretty open fireplace. French doors in the drawing room provide beautiful views looking down the garden. An octagonal garden room with a fireplace provides an additional quirky reception space. These attributes combine to create a house which is perfect for entertaining.
Off the entrance hall there is a good-sized study with views which overlook the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room with four door oil fired AGA is adjacent to the dining room. There is lapsed planning permission that offered the opportunity to create a two storey side extension off the dining room which would result in the creation of a larger open plan living space. Through to the rear of the property is a utility room, cloakroom and back door access to the garden.
On the first floor the wide staircase opens on to a generous landing flooded with light from a tall staircase window. Off the landing is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, three additional double bedrooms (one with an ensuite bathroom) and a family bathroom. The second floor offers further accommodation with two double bedrooms and additional eaves storage space that could be used to create an additional family bathroom, subject to the necessary consents.
Sherfield Mill is set well within 9 acres of beautiful grounds. There are formal gardens and a productive vegetable garden with an avenue of mature lime trees that leads to the tennis court, swimming pool and the paddock beyond. A tributary of the River Blackwater runs through the grounds with the original mill still in place.
