An incredible country home that was once a mill house has gone on the market – and it still has a unique feature.

The stunning seven-bed, Grade II listed The Mill House in Little Missenden has gone up for sale for £2.85 million.

The country pile boasts a galleried entrance hall, vaulted drawing room, study, triple garage, separate annexe, garden room and 2.6 acres of land – and the River Misbourne flows straight through the centre of the house.

And the mansion would be the perfect home for Disney fans, as Little Missenden has been used in the recent Cruella De Vil movie, as well as other television shows over the years including Midsomer Murders.

Fine and Country agents say the 17th century mill is a “rare find indeed”, because as well as the river running through the house, the old watermill workings form the centre stage of the home.

It has a double height entrance hallway, with period solid oak staircase leading to first floor galleried landing overlooking the hallway, with the restored old mill gear workings on full display encased in glass running from the ground up through the first floor.

A door to the left of the hallway takes you along a viewing platform over where the mill race runs through the house, with a small waterfall in full view, and this leads to the utility room and triple garage.

The breath-taking double aspect drawing room has a vaulted ceiling with original oak beams throughout and an impressive stone fireplace with raised hearth and offers stunning views over the River Misbourne and gardens to the rear, and the mill race to the front.

A small staircase also leads to a playroom which agents say could easily be converted to provide a further bedroom.

The living space on the ground floor has an inglenook fireplace and a study and a second staircase to the first floor.

There is also a formal dining room, with a beamed ceiling and an Austrian wood burner, leading to the recently extended kitchen and orangery/conservatory.

There is a continuation of the Austrian theme with a large range, hand crafted unit and a central kitchen island with granite worktops.

The separate annexe has its own entrance, so has potential as an AirBnB rental.

Meanwhile, the grounds have been opened up to the public in previous years as part of the popular National Garden Scheme – and boast “delightful” gardens with a Japanese-style stone footbridge over the mill race, a Victorian-style greenhouse, a meadow, enclosed tennis court and an ornamental parterre with a stone fountain.

The incredible home is on the market for £2,850,000 – view the full details at
