The kitchen/breakfast room has a matching range of wood wall and floor-mounted base units with solid work units.
The conservatory has French windows opening on to a gravelled courtyard with views over the immediate gardens, stream and woodland.
There is an outstanding variety of timberclad outbuildings providing opportunities for stabling, dry storage and office use.
At the rear is a split-level garden including lawn, flower borders and substantial greenhouse.Like the gardens, the paddocks and ancient woodland are extremely well kept.
Extending away from the gardens are the picturesque grounds – containing mature specimens of both deciduous and coniferous trees.
The grounds, coupled with the ancient woodland, provide an idyllic backdrop to the lake, which is 2.75 acres.
The character boathouse and thatched chalet on its banks make an attractive location and party venue for summer barbecues.
The lake itself is a peaceful location and is stocked with carp. The ancient woodlands are intersected by several streams which, in turn, add to the delightful rural character of the property and its grounds.
Ward Mill, accessed from a quiet country road via a gravel driveway, is on the market with Mansbridge & Balment (01837 52371) and open to offers in excess of £795,000.
