Green Meadows is approached off Green Meadow Lane, a cul-de-sac off which there are electric operated gates and a gravel drive leading to a turning circle to the front of the property. The house is believed to have originated in the fourteenth century as a Fulling Mill, and has apparently been used as a mill up to the early part of this century. In the 1920’s considerable work was carried by the owner at that time, Sir Alfred Yarrow, to convert the property into a private residence. The whole portrays a property of mellow charm and character blending into the restful surroundings in a most attractive manner. Green Meadows is a red brick Mill House under a red tile roof offering approximately 5,573 square foot of living accommodation. The property is arranged over three floors. Over the ground floor are six reception rooms, making it ideal for family living or entertaining. There is also a large kitchen/breakfast room with French doors opening onto the garden and this in turn leads through to a utility room and separate laundry room. Over the first floor are five double bedrooms with four bathrooms and a nursery. Above this, over the second floor, are three further double bedrooms in the eaves and a family bathroom. Most of the bedrooms enjoy views over the garden and grounds to the water beyond.
Cottage: The cottage forms part of one large outbuilding and comprises a large sitting room with a kitchen/breakfast room over the ground floor. On the second floor are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Garage/Workshop and Gym: Adjoining the cottage is a well-appointed gym beyond which is a double garage and workshop.
Granary: Beside the cottage is a large granary with the unusual feature of a full second floor.
Other Outbuildings: Beyond the house, to the west, is the original turbine and pump room with two further stores.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Green Meadows sits well within its own land and is surrounded by wonderful mature garden and grounds. To the north west of the property is a swimming pool that has now been converted into a koi pond with filtration system.
Beyond the turbine building, to the west of the Mill House, is a large area of woodland and river with a paddock beyond, which has roadside access.
River Anton: The property benefits from approximately 573 yards of both single bank and double bank fishing on the main river.
RIVER AND ELECTRICITY GENERATION
The various sluice gates provide full control over river height and either direct the water under the house, through the turbine house or around the side where it enters the Mill pool; the mill pool has yielded quite large rainbow and brown trout. Minor repairs are required to restore the turbine which until recently produced electricity realising around £12,000 pa of savings and income.
Mains electricity and water. Private drainage. Oil fired boiler for heating and hot water.
