Converted Water Mill In Leicestershire For Sale
A mill has stood at Huncote since the Domesday Book. The water mill was converted to steam in the late 1800s, when the wheel was replaced by a steam engine. The ground grain was used as feed for the horses at the nearby Croft Quarry and when those horses were replaced by mechanised vehicles in the 1950s, the mill finally closed.

It lay redundant for almost half a century, before it was lovingly restored in 2004 to create this fabulous family home.

Set in approximately nine acres of mature gardens and pasture, the Water Mill comprises a superb amenity equestrian property, with a stable yard with stabling for four, a detached garage block and office suite.

The house has fabulously appointed accommodation with single storey, two storey and three storey elements which combine to create an interesting and characterful house. It is constructed of brick and has many of the original features on show, including the water wheel’s timber fixings which are still visible in the master bedroom.

Approached through electric gates and along a private drive, with a gravelled turning sweep which lies to the west of the house, The Water Mill stands in a secluded rural position with views over its pasture, and to Croft Hill. It lies just south of Huncote, about 8 miles to the south west of Leicester City Centre, and within easy reach of the excellent motorway network in the Midlands linking to Rugby, Northampton, Coventry, Nottingham, Derby and Birmingham.
