An exceedingly rare opportunity to acquire this Grade II Listed former windmill located in a wonderful rural location. This historic property dates back to the mid 1800's, originally built as a feed and flour mill, before it was given over to residential conversion in the 1950's. The mill sits in a generous plot with three bedroom accommodation within the mill tower and it's adjoining addition. A particular feature of the property, offering much more potential for further accommodation is the modern studio building within the grounds. This large, attractive building, originally built as a recording studio, offers a spacious open plan space, ideal for further addition and alteration, subject to the required planning permissions. The mature, secluded garden creates a wonderful setting, ideal for buyers looking for an interesting, characterful permanent residence or a holiday home/let.
