Windmill | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 15
Standing imposingly in its own large garden, the Old Mill has been carefully refurbished to provide 7 floors of cutting edge design against a backdrop of original features. Glass bannisters, steel staircases and granite worktops blend perfectly with red brick, oak floors and the original workings of the old flour mill.
The house brims with character: Beamed ceilings, woodburners, open fires, squishy sofas.
The huge stainless steel and oak kitchen has french doors leading to the large BBQ area and heated swimming pool.
The split level heavily beamed sitting room has the original mill stone as its central feature.
The ground floor of the tower is presented as a formal dining room, whilst overhead, on the first floor, a stunning glass walkway connects the house to the Mill Tower.
