Historic Hampshire Watermill For Sale

  • Date: 25th February 2022

Hellier Langston are pleased to be offering this large detached historical property for sale in Bishops Waltham, Hampshire.

Chase Mill is predominantly a Victorian Grade II listed watermill that dates back to the 1800s. The 3,797 sq ft. watermill is located twelve miles south-east of Winchester in the quaint medieval town of Bishop’s Waltham. The three-storey building has twin water wheels which are fed by a millpond set in The Moors, a nature reserve owned by Hampshire County Council, on the northern side of the B2177.

In the 1980s, the western section of the property was converted into 6 x individual offices and then further refurbished in the 1990s. This now has the benefit of a planning permission for conversion to six individual flats with entrance halls as well as adding a bin storage and a wooden storage shed for bicycles and gardening machinery.

In addition, there is a two-storey detached one bedroom house, known as The Gallery, which was originally the stable and cart store of Chase Mill.

Externally, the property comes with a natural lawn area which runs up to the edge of the stream, a parking area adjacent to the buildings, which was created in 2018, plus a larger car park located to the north.

Whilst an opportunity for developers to create an unrivalled residential scheme for the area, the property’s configuration and most recent office use also provides an opportunity for owner occupiers, given the regular shaped floor plates and very attractive parking ratio of approximately 1:100 sq. ft.

The property is available for sale at a quoting price of £750,000 subject to contract.

Hellier Langston Director Patrick Mattison commented “I have been lucky enough to work with some fascinating historic and listed buildings over the past 12 years, and this is definitely one I have been particularly fond of. Its charm will be a huge asset to the scheme it has consent for providing developers with the potential to create an enviable final product.”
