The Mill, Bishop Burton, Beverley
Offers In Excess Of £1,000,000
4 bedroom house
Period house and converted mill on the edge of a lovely Wolds village, close to Beverley.
The Mill is a unique property that skilfully integrates a period house and former wind-powered corn mill. Although the sails were taken down in 1895, history reveals evidence of a working mill in Bishop Burton as early as 1326. This charming family house sits on the edge of the village and borders open countryside. Its accommodation extends some 2800 sq ft and includes two impressive circular rooms with 23 ft diameters. Bishop Burton is a quintessential English village of whitewash cottages and red brick houses clustered around a village green and duck pond known as ‘The Mere’. The Mill is available on the market for the first time in thirty years and is being offered for sale with no onward chain.

On the first floor, the principal bedroom suite sits within an independent wing and forms part of the original mill; there are wardrobe units in American walnut and a Juliet balcony with views across the garden to the countryside beyond. The en suite bathroom includes a free-standing slipper bath, shower and hand basin, and alongside is a recessed fitted wardrobe. The three further bedrooms have fitted wardrobe/cupboard space, are all doubles and enjoy fine country views. The guest bedroom suite has a walk-in shower room with rain shower head and the house bathroom also features a wall-to-wall shower with rain shower head. Both bathrooms were fitted two years ago.
At the front, the house is set back from the village lane behind a carriage driveway and a matching pair of timber gates within a mature hedge. The drive continues on the eastern boundary through wrought-iron gates providing secure parking in front of the detached garage block (20 ft x 18 ft). The garage has a temperature-controlled, walk-in wine room with electrically operated door. At the rear, the well-established gardens extend to some 0.4 acres, are enclosed, dog-friendly, and border open countryside. They have been landscaped to create multiple areas of interest connected by paths winding through an arbour and clipped yew hedging. There are expanses of lawn, herbaceous borders of flowering perennials, a gazebo with a thatched roof, a vegetable garden with five raised beds and a potting shed, a circular tree seat within one of many mature trees, a paved terrace abutting the house inset with original millstones and millstone steps, an area of decking with a pergola draped in clematis and rose and a brick-built barbeque with gas cylinder at the rear of the garage. In addition, there are power sockets, outside taps and external lighting. Beyond the garden are far-reaching views across open countryside.
