About this Property

Occupying an incredibly peaceful and truly idyllic rural location, set in grounds extending to approximately 2.25 acres, and including around 500ft of private frontage directly onto the River Ant, providing multiple moorings and full access out onto the entire Norfolk Broads network.

This impressive and iconic mill has been painstakingly restored by the current owners who concluded works of this very personal renovation project early this year when the beautiful new boat-shaped cap and sails were completed.

Complementing the mill is a sympathetically designed two storey extension which was built in 2002 and which provides well-proportioned and flexible family accommodation, along with a large garage/workshop with generous studio above.

Previously run as a successful holiday let capable of accommodating up to 15 guests, the mill offers incredible versatility along with the potential to provide a significant income.

The gardens and grounds are a haven for local bird and wildlife and the picturesque and peaceful setting encourages all manner of outdoor pursuits, not least fishing, boating, sailing and kayaking.

Whilst the mill enjoys an incredibly private position some distance from its nearest neighbour, it is still well placed for access to a wealth of local amenities with the market town of Stalham only 2½ miles away, Wroxham and the coast less than 7 miles away and the city of Norwich approximately 13 miles to the south. It is also within walking distance of a restaurant, petrol station/shop and various boat hire facilities.

To fully appreciate this unique Broads property, a full and early viewing is strongly recommended.
