Constructed of mellow red brick under a pitched pitched clay tile roof Edlesborough Mill was built in the early 19th century and was last known to have been sold by auction in 1917. Originally a working mill using water from the River Ouzel the mill has been successfully converted to create a handsome private home.
Internally the house combines light and spacious reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation on the first and second floors. Of particular note is the exceptional first floor drawing room (37ft x 31ft) where the original working components of the mill have been retained and offering outstanding views over the mill ponds, River Ouzel and the Chiltern Hills beyond.
Standing to the west of the watermill is the Old Windmill, now beautifully converted to provide unusual secondary accommodation over five floors. The windmill has two bedrooms, the second situated at the top of the building with exceptional far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.
Gardens and Grounds
Well maintained lawns flank the two principal ponds at Edlesborough Mill which are edged with graceful weeping willows and an avenue of pollarded poplars. In all there are four ponds comprising about 2.4 acres which attract an abundance of wildlife. The ponds are fed by the River Ouzel of which about 0.75 miles runs through the grounds. To the south of the mill house is open pastureland studded with a selection of mature specimen trees and productive fruit trees; ideal for the equestrian enthusiast.
The property falls within the Aylesbury Grammar Schools catchment and there is a wide choice of independent schools in the district including Beechwood Park, Tring Park School for the Performing Arts and Berkhamsted Schools for boys and girls.
