UK’s Loftiest Windmill on Sale: A Nine-Floor Residence with Six Bedrooms and a Home Gym

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.
