Littleton Mill Farmhouse is a handsome double fronted stone farmhouse. It is Grade II listed dating from the late C16 with substantial later additions. It has been recently renovated with sympathetic improvements to create a stylish and welcoming family house. There are generous reception areas complemented by good ceiling heights. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and a recent improvement is the master bedroom suite featuring magnificent exposed roof timbers. The house stands back from the lane and has a large well tended and private garden adjoining the mill stream on the north/eastern boundary. There are useful and spacious outbuildings which lend themselves to a variety of uses with considerable potential, subject to planning.
To the front are attractive walled gardens enclosed by pleached limes. The gardens surround the house with well tended lawns, stone terracing and a delightful ornamental garden. There is a large gravelled parking area and additional lawns bounded by the mill race.
