Suttons Mill offers a rare opportunity to purchase two deeply historic properties in a truly exceptional and unspoilt rural location. As you meander along the country lanes and drop down the hill into Cranham, you know instantly you are in for a treat. A five bar gate opens onto a long sweeping driveway with the main Mill House at the bottom of the drive and The Old Bakery opposite.
The Mill House comprises a reception porch opening into a fabulous reception hall and sitting room. This lovely space gives an immediate sense of the history of the property, setting the tone for the plethora of period features that lie within, including fabulous oak beams, aged stone stairs and lovely window seats. A double height space, the reception hall/sitting room boasts a handsome stone pillar and stunning aged flagstone floor with millstone inset. The kitchen leads off the sitting room, a welcoming space with a fabulous inglenook fireplace and ample space for a dining table and a large walk-in larder to the rear. To the other side of the sitting room is a good sized dual aspect library with fabulous high ceilings. There is also a ground floor cloakroom/utility room. Stone stairs lead off the main reception hall to first floor minstrels gallery/family room. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, the principal room with en-suite shower room. There is also a good sized family bathroom on this level. There are a further two double bedrooms on the top floor, linked with a charming 'Jack and Jill' shower room.
The Old Bakery is set to the side of the main Mill House and is beautifully presented with its own waterside garden to the rear. The cottage opens into a light and spacious kitchen and living space with a wood burning stove providing a lovely focal point. There are two bedrooms upstairs and a family bathroom plus a stylish sitting room with stunning exposed beams and double doors which once provided access to the former hayloft. A stable/workshop is incorporated below the sitting room.
The two properties are set in magical grounds of circa two acres, in a truly romantic and peaceful setting. Accessed via a long private driveway, a stream runs past the property, adding to the sense of tranquility. There is ample parking, a double garage, workshop and paddock with solar panels which currently provide energy surplus to need.
Suttons Mill is set in the most idyllic rural setting, approximately one mile from Cranham. Cranham is an archetypal Cotswold village with a popular primary school, local pub, church and cricket ground and a lovely sense of community spirit. Set in a spectacular wooded valley, the village is surrounded by stunning countryside with numerous public footpaths and bridleways to explore. One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools in both the private and state sector. Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham all have sought after grammar schools and in the private sector, Beaudesert Park School is only a few miles away in Minchinhampton and Cheltenham Ladies and College are nearby in Cheltenham. Nearby Painswick, often referred to as the 'queen of the Cotswolds' has excellent amenities with a stylish boutique hotel, several pubs and independent restaurant. There is also a popular 18 hole golf course on the Painswick Beacon. There are three major supermarkets in Stroud including Waitrose and superb shopping in Cheltenham. London is circa 90 minutes from nearby Stroud Station. Junction 12a of the M5 motorway is approximately 10 minutes drive away.
From our Painswick office take the A46 in the direction of Cheltenham. Take the first right shortly after the Royal William. Follow the lane and at the first fork, take the left hand turn and carry on down the hill following the road to the right at the second fork. Suttons Mill will be found at the bottom of the hill with a five bar gate on the right hand side with the property name on the gate.
