Natalia Vodianova's sprawling Sussex property is making us dream of the country
Ever wondered how the other half live? Supermodel Natalia Vodianova’s converted watermill in Selham, West Sussex, which she's called home since 2005, has just gone on the market for a whopping £3 million with Pereds (020 7221 1404), and it’s just as stylish as you’d expect from the Russian cover girl. We’re talking a huge kitchen, a walk-in dressing room and an impressively tiled bathroom (could you handle the all-over geometric print? We’re unsure…). Are you ready for some serious property porn?
The three-floor 18th century property boasts not one, but two swimming pools (indoor and outdoor, of course), linked by an underwater archway in the Spa Complex, which is separate from the already impressive house. Fancy a steam? Lodsbridge Mill has that too, as well as a plunge pool, shower room and a ‘treatment area’ – hot stone massage, anyone?
Got guests? There’s a vaulted entertaining room with enough space for all the Victoria’s Secret Angels and then some, plus a cosy fireplace for the winter months. Don’t forget the guest cloakroom, too – no more dedicated coat beds. If you’re looking to unwind, just grab a bottle from the wine cellar.
The main house has four bedrooms, while the adjoining cottage hosts an extra three. That’s seven bedrooms, plus a spacious dressing room attached to the premier suite to get yourself glammed up every morning. These pictures have nothing on these celebrity wardrobes, though.
The bathroom is kitted out in classic geometric green tiles, with a surprisingly understated toilet, but don’t worry if that’s a little loud for 7am on a weekday morning – there’s also a separate shower room.
The kitchen is probably bigger than our entire house, with heaps of cupboard space for all those Karlie’s Kookies. And if you don’t fancy eating in the dining room, there’s always the sun room.
If that’s not enough, don’t forget the plant room (for, you know, planting) and stables.
There’s a lot of natural beauty around this mill, too. 18.7 acres of land overlooks the River Rother, surrounded by willow trees and dreamy greenery. Excuse while we pack our bags for a quick country retreat… No wonder this property is an Area Of Outstanding National Beauty.
So...anyone got a spare £3 million?
