Crookwood Watermill is an unlisted, charming country residence, previously a working mill built in 1820 with plenty of period character features set in a beautiful rural location. The timbered extension was added in the late 20th Century and was re-clad in English Cedar in 2019. The property is located towards the end of a mile-long single-track lane, surrounded by rolling countryside and green fields and offers flexibile living accommodation. The incredible views and the tranquility of this house are second to none.

The accommodation has timber beams and original features throughout. The welcoming entrance hall features flagstone flooring and double doors leading to a dual aspect sitting room which has a fireplace. There is a sunny conservatory overlooking the rear gardens, while the kitchen and breakfast room has rustic wooden units, an oil-fired AGA and a separate stainless steel range cooker with a gas hob. There is also a laundry/utility area and a separate larder off the kitchen.

On the first floor there is a spacious master bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom, as well as a study and a timber-panelled second bedroom, which is currently being used as a games room. The second floor has two further double bedrooms, plus a family bathroom. A separate section of the second floor, which is accessed via a second staircase, has an attic room with an en-suite bathroom, which could be used as a home office or a fifth bedroom and provides plenty of attic storage space.

The property occupies a secluded rural position, surrounded by beautiful countryside, three miles from the historic Wiltshire market town of Devizes.

There are several good schools in the area, including the nearby Urchfont CofE Primary School, Dauntseys, St John's Marlborough, Marlborough College, St Mary's Calne and St Francis, Pewsey.

By road, the A342 and A4 provides access towards Chippenham and the M4 (J17), while Swindon is 20 miles to the north via the A361 and A4361 and Bath is 22 miles away via the A4.

To the front of the property there is a gravel driveway, providing plenty of parking space and access to the outbuildings which provide ample storage or workshop space. The property also benefits from stabling facilities for several horses. There are gardens to the front of the property, with an area of lawn, a greenhouse and a vegetable garden, while to the rear there are splendid gardens with rolling lawns, a paved terrace area, several mature trees and a delightful pond.

The land is mainly pasture, with thick hedges and spinneys and a broadleaf copse, planted in 2019. About 30 acres is suitable for silage or hay cropping. The lake has a variety of coarse fish, including some large carp. The mixed landscape supports a wide variety of wildlife, with roe and muntjac deer abundant, while kingfishers and otters are regular visitors to the water features.

Agents Note: There are two footpaths, and a bridleway which cross the property. Further details are available from the Agent.
