About this Property
A rare opportunity to acquire a truly unique piece of Norfolk Broads history with planning permission in place to transform the existing buildings into a stunning riverside residence with annexe and visitor centre, designed by Acme, the company responsible for the award winning and iconic transformation of Hunsett Mill.
Set on the banks of the River Bure with over 200ft of private river frontage, this idyllic site offers stunning panoramic views out over the water and the open countryside beyond.
The mill and its pumphouse are Grade II listed iconic historic structures dating back to circa 1814, when the windpump was designed for drainage. It still contains some of the 19th century machinery.
The mill has already been partially renovated, providing accommodation with immense character, comprising ground floor living area with kitchen and Aga, first floor bedroom and a spiral staircase leading to a second floor bathroom. The pumphouse is currently used for storage with the site offering several private moorings, an outdoor kitchen with shower, composting w/c and a four berth static caravan.
The planning permission – which can be seen in full on the Broads Authority website – BA/2020/0271/LBC, will allow the pumphouse to be extended to provide two storey residential accommodation and a visitor centre with the mill forming further ancillary/annexe accommodation, with provision for additional moorings.
The architects responsible for this impressive contemporary design are multi award winning Acme, an international practice specialising in ground breaking contemporary architecture.
The mill and Pumphouse offers an incredible opportunity for the next owner to create a unique and cutting edge contemporary riverside home while honouring the site’s historical significance.
