A beautifully restored mill house in a convenient rural setting.
Built of mellow red brick under a clay tiled roof, Paper Mill Farm was as the name suggests; a working paper mill with worker’s cottages and barns for storage. The present house was converted in the 1960’s using some of the reclaimed materials, including the mahogany doors, from The Gables in Leighton Buzzard which was demolished at this time.
Internally the house combines light and spacious receptions rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation on the first floor. A particular feature is the magnificent drawing room with views over the River Ouzel and the gardens and grounds on three sides. There is a substantial indoor swimming pool and a separate self-contained cottage.
The gardens and grounds are a feature of the house, laid mostly to lawn and flanked by the river and mill stream creating an island. On either side of the driveway are two level, well-fenced paddocks. To the north of the house is the all-weather tennis court and a further paddock with river frontage. The property links with an excellent network of bridle paths with access to Stockgrove Country Park.
A further 57.92 acres is available by separate negotiation, together with a range of modern farm buildings with potential for residential conversion subject to planning.
