The name Furnace Mill is a legacy of the work that used to be done at this former Cromwellian smelting mill in the Wyre Forest at Rock in Worcestershire.

There is still a functioning water wheel which could provide an income from a feed-in tariff. The property is in a waterside setting, its three and a half acres boasting meandering streams, bridges and a waterfall.

The accommodation covers three floors, linked by a carved staircase with access to the rear gardens from the first floor. At its heart is a large family contemporary-style kitchen/breakfast room with adjacent dining room.

The double height reception room formed part of the original furnace and has a floor to ceiling open fireplace and galleried landing.

On the first floor are three bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms. On the second floor there are two bedrooms, including a master with en-suite.
