A superbly converted Windmill suitable for modern living with sea views
The Old Mill in Corton was originally built in 1837 and stands 64ft high with a boat-shaped cap & two sets of French burr stones. In 1906/7 The Old Mill ceased working during the winter and in 1909 the sails were removed.
In 1921 the Mill was sold by the Colman family to Mr & Mrs Norton for £450 In 1923 the cap was removed, a new staircase installed & the floors were modified. The tower was then used as a residence & a cobbler's shop. During WWII it was an observation post & following the war, the property was acquired by Yarmouth Stores as a sheet metal works.
In 1993 the property was bought & restored as a residence. It is grade II listed.
There are currently three bedrooms and two bathrooms (1 en-suite) but the main tower could be used for further bedrooms. There are attractive areas of exposed brickwork especially in the tower which provides generous living space and a fireplace in the sitting room.
The Old Mill would be ideal as a holiday let investment.
The Old Mill is surrounded by a charming secluded garden mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with flower beds and shrub borders.
There is a garden room which has plumbing and electrics and could be used as an annexe if required.
The Old Mill sits centrally in the village of Corton which has superb beaches nearby and a wide variety of leisure pursuits. There are a number of shops nearby both locally and in Lowestoft. The Somerleyton Estate is to the west and has a fine pub and a number of events throughout the year.
