KNOWN to date back to the early 16th century, Sea Mills Farm is an unusual and very handsome property combining a farmhouse, mill and miller's cottage in a continuous row.

It is surrounded by its own land totalling about 15 acres and has no near neighbours.

The property is Grade II listed and is built of local Moolham stone with mullion windows, chamfered ceiling beams and a Double Roman clay tile roof.

Milling took place on the site until the mid-1970s and it has been the much-loved family home of the current owners for the past 29 years, during which it has been carefully renovated and maintained.

The property is currently used as a single dwelling but given its earlier layout it would be relatively simple to reinstate the miller's cottage as an independent, self-contained annexe.

Similarly, the garden room with its en suite shower room could serve as ground floor bedroom for a dependent relative with limited mobility.

The house has a total of four reception rooms, with the good-sized sitting and dining rooms combining with the large kitchen/breakfast room and adjacent conservatory to form a family hub in the centre of the house.

The kitchen is fully fitted with timber-fronted units, gas fired Rangemaster range cooker and two oven, gas-fired AGA. At one end of the house are the study and adjacent snug plus a useful storage room.

The principal and guest bedroom suites are extremely spacious and both have en suite bathrooms with separate showers. The remaining three bedrooms share the family shower room.

Sea Mills Farm has a group of farm and mill associated buildings. Opposite the house is the granary, which has detailed consent for conversion.
