Starling House, on Birks Lane at Millhouse Green, is described by the sellers as a 'piece of heaven', sitting within landscaped grounds covering 1.5 acres beside the River Don.

The south-facing gardens are enlivened by a pagoda walk and a bespoke handmade folly. The lucky buyer can expect to see hedgehogs, ducks, pheasants and owls among the wildlife on their doorstep.

The property has fishing rights - the river is rich in trout and grayling - and the home is approached via a 107-metre tree-lined driveway.

A centrally-positioned reception hall, lounge, garden room, fitted kitchen with breakfast area and dining room are some of the downstairs features, while upstairs there are five generously-proportioned bedrooms – one of which is en-suite – alongside a home office, a bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and an extra room that could be used as a further bedroom.

The sale is being handled by Fine & Country. Visit or call 01226 729009 for further details.
