As the name suggests, the property was once a cider mill which is reputed to have provided the local tipple-of-choice to a pub standing on the Stapleton crossroads at that time. Around 20 years ago the mill and it's associated outbuildings were converted into a small, exclusive development of quality homes, centred around the former farmyard.


Internally, the character has been retained with timber used to great effect, including exposed beams in most rooms. Red brick features can be found on the ground floor, particularly in the sitting room where a striking fireplace, complete with wooden mantle and a gas burner, forms an attractive centrepiece, and the dining room, which exhibits a wall of exposed brick. Under the current ownership, the property has undergone a programme of improvements which including the new kitchen and bathrooms, as well as some re-configuration works on the ground floor, creating a sense of convenient, modern living.

The accommodation is thoughtfully laid out, the kitchen enjoys a farmhouse-style atmosphere with a gas-fired burner, a window seat and a central island with a breakfast bar. Fitted units beneath a granite work surface, including an integrated dishwasher and space for a gas range-style cooker, provide ample storage and work surface space for the modern cook, Lying open to the kitchen, and benefitting from full-length windows to the front aspect is the dining room. The sitting room, which can be found across the entrance hallway, enjoys a feeling of peace and seclusion. Also accessed from the entrance hall, the office is perfectly situated for those working from home or requiring a place for individual study.

Upstairs, 5 generously proportioned bedrooms can be found arranged over two floors, with three to be found on the first floor, including two large double bedrooms, each with en suite facilities, and a delightful single room/study. The master bedroom suite is of particular note; a spacious bedroom with a connecting dressing room and en suite shower room. The family bathroom is also on the first floor; having been renewed as part of the renovation works, a stylish, contemporary suite offers a sense of luxury and opulence. Two further generous doubles can be found on the second floor. Domestically, the property is well equipped to handle the requirements of a busy modern lifestyle. The side door opens into a useful lobby, with a coat and shoe cupboard. A cloakroom and a utility cupboard can also be accessed from here.


Stapleton Mill enjoys a varied garden, much of which is arranged to the rear as a primarily, south facing level lawn. This is bordered by a fence and established trees, ensuring security for children and dogs as well as privacy, particularly when the trees are in leaf. To the side of the property is an atmospheric gravelled courtyard which, with an ornamental pond complete with millstone centrepiece, is a particularly lovely place to relax, dine or entertain al fresco, and there is a paved sun terrace surrounding the front door. There is a double car port and a garage, located in a block within the courtyard. Parking is also available for several cars in the courtyard.
