Coddington Mill is in the small rural hamlet of Coddington with far reaching views over open countryside and to the Bickerton Hills.
The property dates from 1775 and has been converted to provide flexible family accommodation over three floors. It retains many original features, including the traditional mill workings.
The main reception hall is accessed from the gardens via circular standstone steps down to an arched entrance. Double stained glass doors open into an impressive kitchen, furnished with oak Shaker style units around a central island, and extending to a seating area beside an exposed brick fireplace with wood burner. Detailed mill wheel workings are on display here and create a focal point in the room. There is an excellent walk-in pantry. The snug is also found off the main reception hall.
A cloakroom, shower room and laundry room are located off a second entrance hall.
A charming dining room, with fabulous views over the gardens, is reached from the first floor landing. The impressive dual aspect drawing room combines two seating areas with a central staircase. A great expanse of beautifully polished floorboards extend throughout the room, which combine well with the exposed beams and circular brick detailed chimney. There is also a bedroom and a cloakroom off this floor. There is access to a terrace and seating area, with steps down into the gardens.
From a galleried landing, the master bedroom suite occupies an easterly facing aspect and has some of the best views of the house. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Due to the unique characteristics of Coddington Mill, the property would certainly lend itself to a variety of business opportunities, such as a boutique hotel or yoga retreat.
There is potential to install an environmentally-friendly water powered turbine for producing electricity.
Coddington Mill provides an idyllic setting for family living and outdoor entertaining. Stone flagged terraces and paths lead over the mill sluice to the pool house, which has glazed sliding doors to the front. It houses a swim/spa pool with adjoining barbeque area, decking to front and patios to either side.
The house has impressive and extensive gardens, which have been landscaped around Coddington Brook. The brook widens out in front of the house to form a mill pool. The property features a beautiful ornamental lake, where an overlooking detached garden room, converted into a guest suite with kitchen and shower room, has a large decked terrace.
The banks of the pools have been attractively landscaped and planted with a wide variety of shrubs and trees including a distinctive Japanese style garden with water features and characteristic planting. The property includes two fields extending to approximately 6 acres and a timber stable building divided into two boxes.
Electric gates open onto a large forecourt with an excellent two storey garage block comprising two garages and a workshop on the ground floor with a rear lobby and WC. Above is a superb office suite. This has previously obtained planning permission for development as tea rooms.
