The linking of this pair of 1828 Grade II Listed pumping stations via a black, steel conservatory over the former mill race has created a unique five bedroom family home with a separate five acre field of stunning spaces defined by light.
The bold assertion of its previous working life, as seen by the distinctive pair of tall chimneys, high arched windows, flagged ceiling and former sluice gate is complemented by the crisp décor and softened by the clever use of glazing to maximise the reflections of the stream.
There is drama too: the 39’ open plan living room with its 19’3 high vaulted ceiling is best viewed from a mezzanine landing and is mirrored by similar views over the second lounge from a further landing used as a games room. The inherent flexibility is obvious: to one side there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms arranged over two upper floors and the remaining two bedrooms and shower room lie in the second wing. The large living spaces are counterbalanced by a more intimate day room and and the well appointed kitchen opens to a southern breakfast terrace overlooking the landscaped garden.
