3 bed Detached House
Mill Hill, Swaffham Prior
beds 3 receptions 2 bath 1

This stunning home has origins dating back to the mid 19th century, and is understood to have been a working mill until at least the 1920s. The mill then was left in a semi derelict state until the early 1970s, when it was inspirationally renovated and converted into a unique home, cleverly retaining its original character yet combining with modern living convenience.

Now Grade II Listed being of historical or architectural importance, the property today has three modern octagonal wings providing the main accommodation and linking with the mill by connecting glazed corridors, the mill taking a central position and formal entrance. There are still many features associated with a property of this style including a replica of the original sails (not now operational) and a fantail. This fantail is accessible from inside and offers wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.

Complimenting such an original house is the large half acre grounds (sts), with several individual areas including a large main lawn with outbuilding, terrace with steps to the lawn made from the original gears and hot tub, rear courtyard with individual planting and summer house. To the front is a large driveway with access to a double garage/workshop.
