This stunning converted mill house hides some secrets at the bottom of the garden.
The grade-II listed home in Coddington has its own pool house and secluded guest suite.
Add this to the five bedrooms, fine interior and the fact some of the mill’s original features have been retained.
It’s on the market, but the price is only revealed if you apply.
Coddington Mill dates back as far as the 14th century, but it is believed the majority of the structure was rebuilt in 1775.
For centuries it provided grain for the local community in the village less than 10 miles from Chester.
Recently it was converted into a family home, with the developer and architect receiving an award for their design and craftsmanship.
Exposed beams and the preserved brick chimney give the large rooms, including the open-plan kitchen and living room, plenty of charm.
Outside you can find the pool house connected to a BBQ area.
This also leads out into the Japanese garden and private lake, which is overlooked by the guest suite.
Coddington Mill has been placed on Rightmove by estate agents Wright Marshall.
