For sale for the first time in 47 years, Lumley Mill has been extensively remodelled and refurbished by our clients during their period of ownership. The property is now presented in excellent order, with a wealth of period features, including generous ceiling heights, well-proportioned rooms and large Georgian windows giving the property a light and airy feel throughout the day. A significant addition to the property in recent years, our clients have added a stunning orangery which currently houses the kitchen/breakfast room. This was constructed by Marston and Langinger in 2005 and benefits from a stunning sun lantern, underfloor heating and oversized glazed doors leading to the terrace beyond, all with a two-oven Aga at its heart.
Once the bread-making house to Lumley Mill, The Toll House is adjoining but separate to the mill house, providing a wonderful guest cottage in its own right. The cottage provides a three bedroom annexe, suitable for either guest accommodation or au pairs, complimenting perfectly the accommodation in the main house. Of note, the kitchen/breakfast room is generous in size and features a four-oven Aga.
The gardens and grounds at Lumley Mill are a stunning feature and are the highlight of the property. Our clients have spent the last 47 years bringing the gardens back from disrepair, giving us the wonderful showpiece landscape we see today. As we would expect of an old mill, the rivers and mill race running through the property are a real feature and the gardens here are extremely private, being surrounded by some wonderful mature specimen trees and established shrub borders.

Lumley Road is a semi-rural lane running alongside Peter Pond, a natural wildlife habitat and conservation area, within walking distance of the thriving village of Emsworth, with day to day shopping, easy access to the foreshore and train station. At its northern end it becomes Mill Lane and bridges the countryside between Emsworth and Westbourne. Mill Lane contains just a handful of historic period homes and enjoys a rural feel, yet it remains convenient for both Emsworth village centre and good local transport links. The Cathedral City of Chichester lies approximately 6 miles to the east with the renowned Festival Theatre and comprehensive shopping facilities. The junction with the A27 motorway is approximately one and a half miles to the west, providing access to Portsmouth and Southampton in the west and the aforementioned Chichester and Brighton to the east. London is access via the A3m intersection at Bedhampton. Havant which lies approximately 4 miles away provides a mainline railway station to London Waterloo (70 minute fast service).

The Toll House
Many people move to Emsworth to enjoy the best of town, country and coastal life. It was once a fishing village that was known for boatbuilding, rope making and oyster farming. Many of these traditions are long gone, but Emsworth has retained much of its old-fashioned charm.The many artists who live and work here throw open their studio doors to show their work at the annual Emsworth Art Trail while the Emsworth Horticultural Society holds an annual fair over the August Bank Holiday, which includes demonstrations of ancient crafts such as glass blowing, wood turning, falconry and beekeeping.
