Earlier this year it was reported that the Cotswolds became the most sought-after country hotspot for property hunters during the pandemic – and by the looks of this stunning converted mill, we can see why.
Garsdon Mill, on the banks on the River Avon, on the Cotswolds and Wiltshire border, has just gone up for sale with estate agent Knight Frank.
The historic property was converted by The Honourable Patrick Howard, brother of Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire, who owns the neighbouring Charlton Park Estate. Patrick’s wife, Mary, was a famous socialite fundraiser and former 60s Vogue cover model, with the couple regularly gracing Tatler’s Bystander pages in the 80s and 90s. Mary tragically died in a car crash in 2012.
The property, which still retains many of the original mechanics from its days as a working mill, is a country ideal, wrapped in a whopping 54 acres of land, including landscaped gardens, woodland, meadows and parkland.
The new owner can expect five bedrooms, their own picturesque millpond and bridge, a tennis court, swimming pool for al fresco summer parties, not to mention two gorgeous self-contained cottages and a number of further outbuildings which could potentially be further developed.
Just a short distance from the pretty village of Charlton and hamlet of Gardson, in North Wiltshire, this rural escape is perfect for city dwellers on the lookout for more space – something this family home has in abundance.
Naturally, you’ll need deep pockets to make it yours – Garsdon Mill has an asking price of £3.2m – if you’re quick enough, you can make the most of the stamp duty holiday which ends in June.
