Description

Location:

Situated just outside the village of Lower Broadheath where you will find a good primary school, two public houses, a church and village hall. The property also falls within catchment for the well renowned Chantry High School nearby in Martley.

There is good access to Worcester City centre where there are extensive leisure and shopping facilities.

Worcester train station has services to London and by road the M5 offers good commuting north or south.

The property:

Entrance hallway, Breakfast kitchen, utility room, shower room, sitting room, living room, cellar with mill wheel, five bedrooms and two bathrooms.

History:

The mill was described as “newly rebuilt” in the 1787 estate records. Earlier Records in the Cathedral Archives show that the mill probably originated after 1240.

The basement retains significant remains of the mill drive gearing. The mill remained in use until the 1950s. The wheel pit appears to have been infilled in the 1960s-70s, the wheel having been derelict for many years.

The area of the former water-wheel pit is accessed by modern steps from the exterior. The compartment retains few visible features to demonstrate its former function, the wheel pit having been infilled and a concrete floor laid over the former pit.

It would appear that Kenswick Mill was a fairly typical example of the hundreds of small watermills formerly present in the county. It is now a fairly rare survivor amongst the once common timber framed mills, and only one framed mill (at Shelsey Walsh) survives in working (restored) order in the county.

Ground floor accommodation:

There is extensive accommodation on the ground floor and you immediately sense the history, charm and character as soon as you step inside. With potential to accommodate a dependant or teenager and further scope to modernise.

The kitchen is a great space with a vaulted ceiling and offers storage and space for a range cooker. With great potential and room for a table and chairs. There is a door leading into a utility room and shower room.

There are two good sized reception rooms, one with an attractive inglenook fireplace and a door leading to the large cellar with mill wheel.

First floor accommodation:

There are two staircases, one off the hallway and one off the living room so good for a dependant or teenager.

The stairs off the living room lead to a light and airy landing with a spacious double bedroom and a fabulous modern country bathroom with engineered oak flooring and glorious beams. A beautifully engineered oak and glass staircase leads you to two further bedrooms that the owners have converted from a former corn mill.

The original staircase off the hallway leads to two bedrooms and a dressing room.

Outside:

The rear landscaped garden offers an attractive block paved area with space for a table and chairs and steps leading up to a flat lawned area.
There is an outside cellar which houses the former water-wheel pit having been infilled with a concrete floor laid over the former pit.
To the front of the property is a block paved pathway that leads to gate, with lawn, shrubs and trees.

There is a detached timber garage to the side of the property and parking for multiple vehicles. There is extensive woodland to the side beyond the garage.

Services:

Mains water and electricity, LPG heating and private drainage by septic tank.
