Pilcot Mill House and Pilcot Watermill - Lot Two
Pilcot Mill House and Pilcot Watermill comprise a wonderful Grade II listed country house together with a charming mill of historic interest, all set in ground of around 0.7 of an acre (available as separate lot or as a whole with The Barracks). The main dwelling house is a 17th and 18th century property of immense character with virtually complete timber framing exposed to the front with brick and some rendered infill panels. The property benefits from well proportioned accommodation, an excellent range of outbuildings/garaging and attractive tree fringed grounds with the added benefit of part boundary frontage to the River Hart. Pilcot Mill itself is steeped in history and character and the old mill wheel can still be seen albeit without its paddles. This is also listed grade II and dates from the 18th century. It takes the form of a rectangular block of a building of two storeys with an attic floor and it is timber framed, with brick infill and the upper storey is weather boarded. The main walling is in Monk bond with a lot of blue headers used but the northern end and the upper south end have exposed oak framing with brick infill all under the clay tiled roof. The mill was last used in 1928 but the brick walls of the sluices and boundary to the mill dam are still present following considerable renovation. The stream which powered the wheel has two by-pass channels adjacent to the wheel pit. The pit wheel and machinery are still in the mill, including two pairs of stones, one of which is considered a French Burr. The pulleys for an internal hoist as well as the grain bins and chutes are mostly intact.
