A once in a lifetime opportunity to become the proud owner of one of the most beautiful properties in Edenbridge, set within the Eden Valley. Situated on the high street of Edenbridge, surrounded by countryside and a short distance from mainline railway stations and amenities as well as a number of good schools is a Grade II Listed Watermill with views of the millpond and enjoying east facing sunrises, making this a spectacular property. The property is currently used as an office, but we believe there may be the potential to develop, subject to the necessary consents, to convert into a single dwelling or two apartments.

Currently the property is laid out as follows:
Front door opening to ground floor: approximately 415 square feet
Large open room with two sets of stairs to the first floor. Access to the terrace overlooking the millpond, most of which is part of the property. The large timber mill wheel sits at centre stage. Two WC's and a store are also located on the ground floor, where there is currently a bar area.
First floor: approximately 781 square feet
Large open plan room, currently used as a commercial office space, again accessed via 2 staircases and a kitchenette area.
The second floor comprises one large room with vaulted ceilings currently used as office space and three separate storerooms. The second floor has the benefit of a WC & shower room and once again accessed via two separate staircases.
Change of use from office to dwelling use class.
It is believed there is potential to either convert the entire building into a single dwelling which would house a wealth of character, tall ceilings and plenty of natural light.
The other option may be to convert the property into 2no. dwellings, each set out horizontally, creating either 1 x 1 bedroom property on the second floor and potentially a 2 bedroom property on the first.
Leaving options to incorporate the ground floor.
Previous planning consents:
The watermill was once a restaurant, and it is felt that this use class would be easily obtained along with a liquor licence to create a bar or restaurant.
An east facing terrace with views over the millpond.
High Street No 87 (The Old Mill) TQ 4446 12/415 10.9.54. II. No 87: 18th century water mill with undershot wheel and originally a stream running under road (now diverted). Rounded tiled gambrel roof half-hipped at right. Weatherboarded with various casement windows and loading bay projecting on upper floor. A building of hidden treasures, a mill was first documented in 1199, thereafter enduring a romanticised and poignant journey through history, witnessing estate and land changes. The current building was built in the mid 18th century and used as a working flour mill up until 1919 before transforming into a grinding mill until 1944. The retained grinding stones within the property are a testament to the Mills presence. It was lovingly restored in 1986 retaining all the mill machinery and offers the potential buyer a stunning home and a three bedroom cottage.
Services: Mains water, electricity, drainage and gas.
Local Authority: Sevenoaks District Council
Current Rateable Value: £13,000
