An 18th-century silk mill, located in Chalford, Gloucestershire, is on the market for a mere £650,000. The house presents its future owner with an “artful marriage of old and new,” we read, complete with “huge stone fireplaces, beams and a bread oven alongside a designer kitchen and a dashing mezzanine-level music room. It’s not short of space either, with three reception rooms, a study, utility room and four bedrooms.”
I’d buy it for the small stream and bridge outside… Live there for a few summers and write books.
