The Mill House is a stunning substantial period detached home which is believed to date back to Norman times and was formerly a water mill which supplied flour which was delivered along the River Devon to Belvoir Castle, and was understood to be converted into a home in the early 18th Century.

This truly individual home was substantially extended during the 1800s and more recently has undergone a complete programme of sympathetic refurbishment and reconfiguration to create a beautiful spacious, light and airy family orientated home which combines much of its original inherent character and features with the advantages of contemporary living.

The accommodation spans three floors and comprises three main reception rooms and central family room which links off a reconfigured contemporary dining kitchen appointed with a generous range of units and linking through into a useful utility/cloaks with a separate additional cloakroom located off the original entrance hall. In addition there is a spacious laundry room and further store/gym off, whilst to the first floor four double bedrooms, four bath/shower rooms including a spacious family bathroom appointed with contemporary fixtures and fittings.

To the second floor accessed off two separate staircases, are three further beautifully appointed rooms in the eaves which potentially provides up to seven bedrooms all tastefully decorated throughout and many of the rooms benefitting from the original sash windows, deep skirting, attractive fireplaces to both the living and dining rooms.

As well as the wealth of accommodation on offer the property occupies a stunning plot, tucked away in a quiet backwater yet still within walking distance of the heart of this well served and highly regarded village.

The property is located off a sweeping private driveway which is shared with only a couple of other dwellings, offering a good degree of privacy with the total plot extending to approximately one acre. The gardens are beautifully maintained with large lawned frontage, well stocked with established trees and shrubs and encompasses a pretty summer house and large terrace which links back into the main dining room creating a fantastic outdoor entertaining space. The driveway sweeps down the side of the property and provides a considerable level of off road parking with a detached brick and pantile double garage.

The rear garden is a delightful feature, again lovingly maintained and established over the years and offer the unique feature of the river Devon flowing through the centre creating a stunning backdrop to this pretty and private location.

Overall the Mill House is quite a unique dwelling which has undergone a complete programme of tasteful refurbishment to arrive at a truly stunning family orientated home, tucked away in a beautiful setting all within this highly regarded edge of Vale village and viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.

The village of Bottesford is well equipped with local amenities including primary and secondary schools, a range of local shops, doctors and dentists, several public houses and restaurants, railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham which gives a fast rail link to London's Kings Cross in just over an hour. The A52 and A1 are also close by providing excellent road access.
