For over a century, Semington Brook turned cereal grain into flour in the Wiltshire village of Worton before it was converted into a family home in the 1970s. The historic structure is for sale via Inigo £1.5m, with living spaces fanning across four storeys.
The 4,600 sq ft Wiltshire property dates from 1850 and sits on a tributary of the River Avon, overlooking Salisbury Plain. Grade II listed, the former mill was in operation up to the 1970s, and post-conversion, it retains its 1932 water turbine that heats the house in winter and garden swimming pool.
That’s not the only historical feature inside country property: timber beams criss-cross levels, as do hardwood floors. But the redbrick building’s industrial floorplans have been tamed for domestic use, with the main level housing the kitchen and living room, with its 360-degree rotating Jotul wood burner that heats the large space.
A cedar-clad addition off the kitchen is currently used as a bedroom (though it might be better as a home studio, with views over the brook). Three bedrooms are on the second floor, and two more sit under the sloping eaves of the roof.
The converted flour mill comes with a separate three-bedroom cottage called Willow Barn, constructed in 2010 as a guest house.
