The Property

This former silk mill is Grade II Listed and dates from the 18th century. It was converted in the mid 1980's into 11 flats. Number 4 is situated on the first floor of the building, arguably the best position in the building. The kitchen has been refitted and a Worcester gas fired boiler supplies domestic hot water and central heating. The apartment is a short walk from the Waitrose supermarket and the High Street, and enjoys an open aspect over the town river bridge to the front, and the Inner Silk Mill to the rear.

The Accommodation

Communal entrance door with mail boxes and door intercom. Stairs to the first floor lead to a landing with storage cupboard. The private front door leads into the entrance hall, with a further reception hall beyond, where there is a built-in wardrobe, and a cupboard housing the hot water tank. The spectacular sitting/dining dining room has five windows on two elevations making it extremely light and airy. There is a lovely view over the river to the park beyond. Next door the refitted kitchen has an electric oven, gas hob and extractor over. There is a sink and space for a washing machine. The larger bedroom has an en suite cloakroom, while the second bedroom has built-in wardrobes. The bathroom has a shower over the bath.


Immediately adjoining the rear of the mill is an area of communal garden and residents parking, where No. 4 has a private allocated space.


A new 145 year lease was created in 1986 so while the flat is technically leasehold, the purchaser on completion will receive a £1 share in OSM Ltd (Outer Silk Mills), who own the freehold. The maintenance charge for 2021 is £175pcm. This covers buildings insurance, external repainting and repairs to the fabric of the building, cleaning and electricity charges for the internal communal areas as well as garden maintenance, and external water and electricity charges. All mains connected. The gas boiler supplies radiators and central heating. Council Tax Band C - £1,879.64 for 2021/22. There is no EPC as the property is Listed.
