Mill Hill Farm, Sherborne, Gloucestershire, GL54 3DU - £2.8million




Untouched by time for many years, Mill Hill Farm offers a rare opportunity to restore a classic Cotswold stone house and its traditional stone barns, and transform it into an extremely impressive home.

It is an exceptional property in an enchanting location.  On the edge of the National Trust-owned village of Sherborne, the farm sits in around 11 acres and includes an ancient orchard with fields running down to the Sherborne Brook - a real time capsule of a bygone era.  Planning permission has already been secured.  Offering privacy without isolation and enormous scope, this is one of the most sought after parts of the Cotswolds and well placed for commuting to London.

The farmhouse originates mostly from the early 19th century and is Grade II Listed.  With large south facing windows and well-proportioned symmetrical rooms, it features high ceilings and original details such as cornices and wooden floors, shutters and open fires.  It is currently configured with three spacious reception rooms, a kitchen and utility rooms to the rear, and five bedrooms on the first floor.  The planning permission provides for contemporary open plan living with an impressive garden room extension from the kitchen to give views over the orchard and Windrush Valley, while the adjacent barn would become a guest bedroom suite, with a spacious master suite and three further bedrooms, and family bathroom.

The stables and other barns could be used to create staff accommodation, a separate guest suite, gym and entertainment space along with a separate garage/store.

Mill Hill Farm is approached down a private driveway leading to a courtyard and parking, with easy access to the barns, house, paddocks and gardens. Hill Farm
