The property in the village of Martyr Worthy, near Winchester, Hants, has the River Itchen running through it and comes with double bank fishing rights.
Now on the market with estate agents Savills, the property dates back to the 18th century, but behind its Georgian facade it is actually an ultra-contemporary country retreat.
It was bought by the current owner in 2006 and has been transformed to create a place designed for relaxation, exercise and entertainment.
The former mill house has been converted into an incredible gym, treatment area with steam room and work space and could be converted into a guest cottage if required.INTERIOR SPECIFICATIONS
There is also a contemporary glass pool house with a cinema, kitchen and changing rooms.
The main house has 6,715 sq ft of accommodation over three floors with an entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, inner hall, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, games room, study, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two large attic rooms.
There is almost another 5,000 sq ft accommodation across the pool house, mill house, garage, outbuildings, estate office and eel house.
The house stands in 5.5 acres of land with a swimming pool and terraces designed for outdoor entertaining, a separate lap pool and a walled tennis court.
The River Itchen – widely regarded as one of the world’s great fly-fishing chalkstreams – runs along the southern boundary and the mill leet runs through the grounds, which between them provide 875 yards of double bank fishing.
“It’s incredibly rare and very special to find something like that on the river. And the beauty of that particular river is you get a lot of wild trout, as opposed to farmed trout, it’s a very special stretch of water.”Ed Sugden, from Savills
Ed Sugden, from Savills, said: “The property is unusual in that it has this beautiful Georgian double-fronted facade, which has got symmetry and stature.
“But behind that facade it’s all very modern and has been completely redone.
“The owner was very health conscious and a fitness fanatic so he has put in everything like the lap pool and the gym.
“It’s incredibly rare and very special to find something like that on the river. And the beauty of that particular river is you get a lot of wild trout, as opposed to farmed trout, it’s a very special stretch of water.

“The mill house has been beautifully done but is very personalised to the owner, that could be changed, subject to permission, to provide staff accommodation or further guest accommodation.
“I think this will appeal to the super-rich looking to add a fishing/weekend retreat for entertainment and relaxation to their portfolio or could appeal to an international wealthy buyer just purely for its fishing.
“The setting is just beautiful, it’s absolutely stunning and even if you’re not into fishing if you love wildlife, flora and fauna, this is perfect.”
