A penthouse apartment within a superb Grade II Listed former woollen mill in a rural waterside position on the outskirts of Eastington village with high quality fittings and parking
Millend Mill is a substantial Grade II listed Cotswold stone former woollen mill situated in a quiet country lane on the outskirts of the popular village of Eastington. This rural location allows for easy access to the shops, amenities and train station of both Stroud and Stonehouse, with motorway junctions within easy reach and country walks on the door step. The property was originally built in 1818 by wealthy cloth manufacturer Henry Hicks and has now been sympathetically converted into eleven beautifully appointed apartments on the first, second, third and fourth floors, with the ground floor retained as an impressive reception area with working water wheel. This apartment is at the top of the building, with accommodation arranged primarily over one level. This comprises an entrance area, open plan living space with sitting area, dining area and well appointed kitchen with bespoke Parlour Farm units and integrated appliances, double bedroom and bathroom. A staircase leads up to a useful mezzanine level, and this space could suit as an occasional bedroom or, perhaps crucially in the current climate, a great work from home space. There is a great outlook from the Juliet balcony and double doors, and the property is offered to the market chain free.
The property benefits from a parking space and use of the communal sitting area, at the front of the property, by the weir. There is an outhouse for bin storage and this also houses the meters.
The Mill is set just off a quiet country lane on the outskirts of Eastington Village and most windows take in the view across fields and farmland. The apartments will benefit from a sunny paved sitting area immediately behind the property next to the river. Eastington is a well regarded village with a post office, general store, butchers, public houses and offers easy access to main arterial routes. The nearby town of Stonehouse offers a wide range of amenities to include banks, post office, local schools, supermarkets and butchers. The main line railway station provides a direct route to London, Paddington and Junction 13 of the M5 motorway is approximately 2 miles away.
