This wonderful property is a stone, grade II listed, former water mill in an idyllic location close to the beach at Kilve and set at the foot of the Quantock hills, a walker’s paradise.
This former water mill sits majestically in this peaceful and pretty village, the property has been lovingly restored and converted in a sympathetic manner to retain much of the building’s original workings. Approached along a leafy lane from the village centre, shared only with the owners' neighbouring property. It makes a perfect rural retreat for those wishing to enjoy the peace and seclusion of the surrounding countryside, yet its central location makes it an ideal base for a touring holiday in the West Country. There are many places to visit including The West Somerset Steam Railway, Clarks Village, Taunton, Dunster Castle, the seaside town of Minehead and several small quiet bays and sandy coves to explore.
The accommodation is offered over four floors and is accessed through the front garden and up a small flight of stone steps to the front door, where you are immediately greeted by the exposed workings of the mill. This characterful hallway also houses a separate WC and a utility area with washing machine. To your right is the lounge which is accessed by a small flight of stairs leading down to this spacious room with high ceiling, exposed beams and a welcoming wood burner, comfortable seating and a Smart TV.
