Description Bradford Mill is a detached former mill house, dating from the 17th Century and has many fine period features. The property is mainly constructed of stone, with the majority rendered under a slate roof and clay pantile roof; the property has been extended by the current vendors where the former garage and hay barn have been tastefully incorporated into the house and provide a beautiful and in-keeping drawing room and second kitchen/ dining room with a further bedroom on the first floor; this part of the property could be easily separated to create a separate annex due to the downstairs bathroom.

The property hosts many period features which include exposed beams, deep window sills, and original studded wood doors along with ledged and braced doors and inglenook fireplaces. The house also benefits from wooden double glazing.

The spacious accommodation offers a comfortable sitting room at one side of the entrance hall along with a kitchen/breakfast room. At the heart of the kitchen is a Stanley cooker, with adjoining pantry. The drawing room takes advantage of the river fronted gardens.

The grounds surround the property and are an eye catching feature of the property with a number of mature trees and ornamental shrubs; the grounds lead to the river's edge. The meadow and lakes assists with attracting an abundance of native wildlife and fauna.

An enclosed large pond with an island adjoins the gardens and is sympathetically planted with wetland plants and wild flowers around its edge. A wildflower meadow which has been restored to its original state is a truly special feature of the property and is a haven for wildlife throughout the summer months.

The gardens and grounds compliment the beautiful river setting and in their own right have become a safe haven for native wildlife whilst providing a spectacle throughout the seasons.
