Property of the Day: Darley Mill, Solihull

A converted watermill in a picturesque waterfront setting

THE PROPERTY: Dating back to 1618, this Grade II-listed former watermill sits at the heart of seven acres of land. The property encompasses a main house, a coach house and two storage buildings. 

THE INTERIOR: The recently renovated principal house has accommodation spread over four floors. On the ground level are a large entrance hall, bedroom and en-suite bathroom, while the main, light-filled living space, which also leads into the kitchen and breakfast room, is on the first floor and offers lovely views over the water.  

WHY WE LOVE IT: The waterside terrace, which is ideal for entertaining, looks out over the lawn, with its pretty bridge leading out to a bluebill-lined woodland walk. Other highlights of the split-level grounds include a profusion of mature trees, home to various wildlife species, and three ponds.
