The property

About a mile from Ilsington, in a beautifully peaceful setting on the bank of the River Lemon, is Bagtor Mill, a stunning, Grade II listed, thatched, detached house.

With late 17th cent.

origins, the original mill house has been thoughtfully renovated and added to over time and is now a charming and spacious home, with its large mill wheel and original workings (fenced) attractively preserved.

Surrounded by 5 acres of well-planted gardens, the tumbling river (unfenced) forms one boundary, with gently sloping lawns dotted with pretty wildlife ponds (unfenced) and a paved suntrap terrace (table/chairs).

From the door, waymarked paths wind through the owner’s private woodland/conservation area and alongside the river where deer and other wildlife roam (access occasionally restricted during felling work/bad weather; owner sometimes on site to access workshop/tend grounds). Long gravelled drive to covered porch and front door.

Oak-fitted kitchen (dishwasher, combi-microwave, fridge-freezer, electric Aga, 2-ring ceramic hob).
