This exquisite five-bedroom country home occupies a tranquil and secluded position in the desirable village of Newdigate. The house is set in a beautiful rural location within its own private grounds extending to approximately 7 acres nestled amongst lawn and mature specimen tree woodland which transforms into a bluebell haven in the height of the season.
The subject of an extensive recent renovation, the internal living space of over 4400sq. ft is set over three floors and skilfully combines modern design with original architectural detailing. The current owners have incorporated many characterful features including ornate stone fireplaces, traditional wood panelling and reclaimed traditional lead windows and doors to name but a few.
Mill Lane is a quiet country lane within the village of Newdigate. A private gated topiary edged driveway offers a generous provision of parking and a picturesque view of the house. The living space unfolds over three floors with excellent woodland views from each level and a fantastic quality of natural light throughout.
At its centre is a spacious reception hall with solid oak flooring and a log burner encompassed by traditional wood panelling. The leaded light doors lead to the drawing room with a hexagon sky lantern in the centre and four floor-to-ceiling windows with two giving access to the garden. The living room is also served by a large log-burning stove within a traditional limestone fireplace. To the west of the drawing room, the triple aspect dining room and study can be found with further access from the reception hall. Within the east wing is the open plan kitchen arranged around a central island with a breakfast area, a triple aspect snug and ample amount space to entertain.
