Guide Price £395,000

Blackthorn Windmill
Believed to date from the 18th century, this tower windmill at Old Mill Farm, Blackthorn was once fully clad in tiles (a strip of which remains at the top of the tower) and had a copper roof. The copper roof was lost in 1942 for the war effort, and the windmill remained roofless until 1998, when it was sympathetically converted into the two bedroom house it is today.

There are many great features including circular rooms, exposed beams and stonework and the flexible accommodation is arranged over five floors. The sitting room on the top floor benefits from wonderful 360 degree panoramic views over the surrounding farmland and outside is a large detached garage and gardens.

At present the windmill is small but perfectly formed but as it has planning permission for a ground floor extension (which will provide a generous kitchen / breakfast room), this ever evolving property is set to metamorphosise yet again into a great family home.
