Water remains a prevalent feature in this property. The tranquil sound of trickling water can be heard thanks to the millrace running behind the house.

Directly inside, you’ll find the indoor swimming pool, meaning that the British weather will never prevent your ability to swim.
Inside, the historic turbine hall takes centre stage and is displayed behind glass panels. Positioned on either side are the drawing room and kitchen/dining room. Sunlight floods the drawing room thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, while French doors open up the terrace perfect for alfresco dinner parties. In fact, the plethora of windows in this property means that natural light streams throughout the whole house – and allows you to constantly catch sign of the stunning gardens. The v first floor reception room’s balcony view is particularly impressive – sip on drinks in the summer or cosy up in front of the stuv log-burner to watch the first snow fall.
The bespoke kitchen boasts a plethora of stunning interior details. There’s a glossy limestone floor, Carrara marble kitchen island, fitted breakfast bench, Christian Liaigre wall lighting and built in Bowers and Wilkins wall speakers – perfect for those who can’t cook in silence.
There are five bedrooms, make this an ideal family home; they’re spread over the top two floors, and each benefits from having an en suite bathroom. Alternatively, it’s also a perfect property for a couple, and the plethora of rooms means there’s plenty of space for guests to stay for long weekends or after luxe dinner parties.
What’s more, date nights will have never be so special thanks to the seriously cool cinema room. It boasts a raised level ideal for a plush velvet sofa, orangey glow lights, a fitted projector and speaker, and there’s even a bar attached for romantic cocktails to sip on throughout the film.
The indoor health suite, meanwhile, exudes luxury. With solid teak deck flooring and white marble walls, this sensational spa sits between two deluxe changing rooms, both fitted with twin rain and waterfall showers. There’s specialist water speakers above and within the slick rectangular pool which spans two floors, with depths reaching down to the basement. You’ll find the gymnasium directly below – and since the lower tank of the pool is made out of glass, you’ll get water views while working out.
This property truly is the ideal setting for any weather. Spend sunny days lounging around on the grass sipping on rosé and Pimm’s, and cool off with a dip in the pool – or pamper yourself in the spa before curling up in front of a movie on a cold winter’s evening.
