The opportunity to own the UK’s tallest windmill, now a residential home boasting six bedrooms and a home gym, is currently available.
This unique property in Sutton, Norfolk, originally erected in 1789, underwent an extension to add a ninth floor following a fire in 1861.
Ceasing its operations as a corn mill in 1940 due to a lightning strike, it later served as a museum from 1975 until its closure in 2008.
Purchased at auction in 2018 by a private individual, the historic windmill has been transformed into a breathtaking family home.
Presently on sale, this nine-floor building is accompanied by 1.85 acres of land, offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
Upon entering, the residence unveils an expansive open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area that extends the full length of the house, complete with underfloor heating.
The modern kitchen includes four ovens, a wine fridge, a substantial fridge-freezer, and even a pasta maker.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious dining table seating eight, leading to the first lounge area, characterized by a large, grey sofa, television, and vaulted ceilings.
The next room features a second lounge with an open fireplace, wall-mounted TV, and three large brown sofas.
Descending to the basement reveals a split area with a playroom and a home gym.
On the first floor, a striking landing area with exposed beams and brickwork introduces three double bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities.
The top floor houses two additional double bedrooms and a sizeable family bathroom, complete with a freestanding bath and TV.
The master bedroom is a true highlight, with distinctive walls, beams, and a walk-through wardrobe leading to a large en-suite bathroom, also equipped with a TV.
As a piece of British heritage, this property stands as the tallest windmill in the UK and the second tallest in Europe.
Additional structures include a double cart house and a workshop, ideal for storage or creative pursuits.
The rear garden boasts a substantial lawn, patio, and a soft play area.
Offered for sale by Minors & Brady, the property is listed at £1,750,000.
