Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An incredibly rare opportunity to acquire a truly unique converted mill set in a stunning riverside location occupying a quiet and unspoilt corner of the Norfolk Broads.

Full of character, history and charm, this impressive Grade II listed mill also offers a substantial mooring plot and private parking.

Believed to have been built in 1908 and converted into a holiday home during the 1950s/1960s the current owner is only the third since that original conversion. They have greatly improved the mill during their ownership, running it as a hugely popular holiday let, and completely replacing the cap in 2021.

The accommodation is arranged over four floors and consists of a living room with kitchen area, bathroom, rear lobby and store room/workshop, two bedrooms with further accommodation on floor 3 and in the boat-shaped cap, which also offers an external walkway offering breathtaking views out over the River Thurne and the open countryside beyond.

Access to the mill is via river and footpath only, but included in the sale is a freehold parking space located approximately 400 metres away.

A stunning property in a breathtaking location, early viewing is strongly recommended.
