A landmark Grade II listed former windmill built about 1800, now beautifully restored to provide a unique family home with a spacious five bedroom layout spread over five octagonal floors.
The Windmill, Grade II listed, is reputed to be the second largest windmill in England. Built about 1800, shortly after the opening of the Wendover arm of the Grand Union Canal, it operated as a flour mill until 1926. It was originally converted into a residence in the 1930's with a major restoration and refurbishment carried out about 10 years ago, creating a stunning home combining character with contemporary
family living. The Windmill, long minus its sails, provides adaptable accommodation spread over 5 octagonal shaped floors including the top floor conical loft, with windows providing commanding views over the roof tops of Wendover and the Chiltern Hills beyond.
The ground floor provides a modern well fitted kitchen with granite worktops and built-in appliances, which opens onto the dining room and has access to the rear garden. The spacious octagonal sitting room occupies the whole of the second floor, similarly the master bedroom with en suite shower room and dressing room on the fourth floor. The remaining four bedrooms are arranged over the first and third floors, served by a further similarly well-appointed contemporary bath/shower room.
The Windmill, set back from the road with access via Mill Yard has areas of well-established garden and a gravelled parking area to the side.
