Kellaways Mill benefits from ownership of the entire weir across the river and single bank fishing rights.

Kellaways Mill is an historic site, having origins back to 1304, chosen no doubt due to its unrivalled setting. The current property, originally a working water mill, was built in the 17th century of local rubble stone elevations with a stone tile roof with second floor dormer windows and is Listed Grade II. The front façade is a warm and mellow honey colour with a mature climbing wisteria, in front of which is a gravel driveway accessed from a quiet lane through stone pillared gates and leading to a large parking area, next to the walled front garden.
The present owners have undertaken a full programme of renovation works, blending the abundance of period features with modern luxuries, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms. The front door opens into a large and welcoming reception hall with limestone floor and having access directly into the garden to the rear. A wide stair case leads up to the first floor and a light corridor, which overlooks the garden leads to the ground floor accommodation. The kitchen was completely re-configured at one end of the house, creating a lovely light and modern room with fitted units and integral appliances as well as a central island unit and worktop. Doors either side open into the front and the rear gardens. The kitchen leads through to a large informal family eating and entertaining room, whilst the rear corridor leads to the large and light triple aspect dining room with tile flooring.
The impressive vaulted ceiling drawing room with a fine period staircase to the mezzanine is located on the first floor, taking in dramatic riverside views and opening onto the lovely west facing sun terrace with access gated stairs to the gardens and the weir. The remainder of the first floor is taken up with double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and a further large bathroom. The top floor has been converted into a superb master bedroom suite, again with stunning views.
At the side of the house are two large garages next to which a covered arch leads through to the rear gardens and next to the pretty cottage. The cottage has similarly been refurbished to a very high standard and can be used for guest accommodation, granny annexe, or income potential, having access to the rear garden and ample parking. Further to this the whole property at Kellaways Mill has been rented through Luxury Cotswold Rentals and figures are available on request.
The rear gardens have been landscaped creating a level waterside lawn with stone balustrades bordering the river, leading down to an island accessed over a small stream by a bridge, controlled by a sluice gate and surrounded by mature trees and flowering shrubs and borders. At the end of the gardens is a small pontoon for fishing and boat mooring as well as a wooden lodge with light and power and water connection.
Of special mention is the raised riverside terrace with views down the river with a westerly aspect, perfect for the sun downers! Also a walkway leading over the river to the weir with secure railings for fishing and enjoying the river.
With Kellaways Mill enjoying the ownership of the weir, the property has huge potential to benefit from investment into renewable energy from the water flow. A report on the future benefits is available on request.

Kellaways Mill is accessed off a quiet lane, leading to a long drive giving access to this house and one similarly impressive neighbour. It is set in stunning Wiltshire countryside, between the villages of Langley Burrell and East Tytherton, close to St Giles Church. The neighbouring village of Langley Burrell has a popular pub within walking distance. The village of Chippenham is 2 miles away, having a mainline railway to London Paddington and Bristol. The M4 (J17) is easily accessible with Bristol airport 34 miles away and Heathrow 80 miles to the east. Chippenham has very good shopping facilities with numerous supermarkets and Bath, Bristol and Swindon are within easy reach. Country pursuits are excellent nearby, with superb walking and riding on your doorstep.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
