Dating back to c1700 but recently extensively renovated, including the cap, the property is set in mature and private south facing gardens with picturesque, far reaching open views. Currently run as a successful holiday let, but equally suitable as a second or permanent home.

About this Property

A labour of love for the current owner who bought it as a derelict shell in 2005, the Old Mill has undergone an exhaustive programme of renovations that have transformed it into a stunning contemporary home whilst retaining its immense character and charm. Highly recommended.

Believed to date back to circa 1700 the Old Mill served as a windpump/drainage mill until being converted to run on diesel circa 1930. The sails were finally removed in 1963.

The extensive list of works carried out by the current owner includes everything from an electrical and plumbing works, new UPVC sealed unit double glazing, the installation of an electric underfloor heating system, a bespoke handmade oak kitchen finished with granite worktops, a completely new ground floor extension, to in 2010, the re-instating of a traditional boat shaped cap complete with gallery, in line with the mill’s original design.

The accommodation is arranged over four floors and now includes an entrance hall, dual aspect living room with wood burning stove and impressive far reaching views, mezzanine study/sleeping area, shower room, circular oak finished kitchen, entrance lobby, one double bedroom, two single bedrooms (one with a fitted single bed/sofa) and finally the cap with access out onto the viewing gallery offering simply breathtaking views out over the River Thurne and the open countryside beyond.

Set in mature and private south facing gardens that extend to approximately ¼ acre with picturesque open views. Currently run as a successful, well established holiday let but equally suitable as a perfectly placed second home or a unique permanent Broads residence.
