Nestling in a secluded valley within the Blackdown Hills, and flanked by a tributary of the River Otter, Stout Mill is a property restoration dream.
The Grade II Listed 4 bedroom farmhouse with attached Mill House, cottage garden, orchard, and courtyard of traditional buildings (including an impressive 9m grain barn) are approached by a long drive. There are also 10.66 acres of extremely attractive pastureland, making the property ideal for buyers with horses or looking to create a smallholding.
Properties like this don’t come to the market very often, Stout Mill has been home to the Quick family for nearly a century. It offers more than an opportunity to create a unique home, incorporating the numerous original features still in place, it’s the opportunity (subject to planning permission) to create a holiday business, a venue, a destination where others can share the charm and tranquillity of the stunning location.
So what can you do with it? Well, until the mill ceased operating in 1953, flour was milled and bread baked on site for at least 400 years, and indeed the milling equipment and overshot water wheel are still in place (although currently out of commission). The possibilities are endless, subject of course to planning consents, and Symonds & Sampson’s inhouse experts are on hand to discuss your ideas.
Situated in a secluded valley close to the Dorset - Somerset border, the A303, M5, Exeter airport and the coast are all within easy reach, and the nearby village of Churchinford has a shop and pub. The Guide Price for this stunning property is £650,000, and contact Ross Willmington on 01297 33122 for further details.
