former mill house on the Thames for sale

Offers over £2,400,000

Culter House Lairds House For Sale
Sol Mill occupies a major portion of a former 18th century watermill set on Lulle Brook, a tributary of the River Thames, and has been beautifully renovated and improved to create a bright and modern living space.

Owned by musician Chris Rea until 2006, it was used as a recording studio with the likes of Elton John, Bill Wyman, Geoff Beck, George Harrison, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, ELO, Fleetwood Mac, The Pet Shop Boys, The Fall, Texas, Electronic and Chris Rea himself, all being inspired by the tranquil waterside setting.

The sunroom which is located directly over the millstream, takes full advantage of the location with its wall of bi-folding doors opening up to reveal the beautiful outlook over Lulle Brook and the gardens.

The flexible accommodation boasts many notable features, particularly the magnificent drawing room (previously the recording studio) with its high vaulted ceiling and in addition to the self-contained accommodation on the first floor, there is a detached one bedroom cottage.

This truly unique six bedroom family home is accessed via electronic gates which lead to a courtyard area. A footbridge leads to the main garden which extends to approximately 0.8 acres.

And for those interested in the environment, the flow of water through the two sluices at Sol Mill are sufficient to generate hydroelectricity for all the domestic needs at the property. The perfect spot for any Mole, Mr Toad, Mr Badger or Ratty!
