Near the ancient market town of Hitchin, in Hertfordshire, Westmill Lane was the site of a working mill for 900 years. Today a rose garden marks the original location – along with the worker’s residences and this Grade II-listed coach house, restored 20 years ago.
The five-bedroom Hertfordshire property is on the banks of the River Oughton, overlooking the Oughtonhead Nature Reserve. Renovations preserved just the right amount of period character – exposed beams, original wood floors – while bringing in natural light through floor-to-ceiling glazed doors, picture windows and skylights across its 232 sq m interiors.
In the main lounge, tall windows flanking the wood-burning stove overlook the half-acre garden.
Inigo has the home listed for £1.395 million.
