Sail through your next house move with a 170 year old mill

In their heyday there were around 2,000 windmills in Lincolnshire and occasionally some of the best preserved ones come up for sale.

Legbourne Tower windmill with its detached, free-standing water wheel was built in 1847 by Saunderson of Louth and is one of very few, five storey, combination wind and watermills in the whole country.

Believed to be Grade II Listed n 1952, since it stopped milling flour, it has gone through a number of renovations. The current owner has remedied previous work to a much higher degree and by using old pictures of the mill, they have managed to keep it as original as possible for a full home conversion.

All the Victorian mill tower floors have been replaced and the mill cap has been rebuilt. The extension to the mill tower has been opened up to create a large open space and living area, which features a wide galley kitchen in old pine and a spacious living area with log burner.

Main features of the windmill include; Four bedrooms, main bathroom, cloakroom toilet with shower and large balcony overlooking landscaped courtyard.

Additional details include; Lime plastering throughout the mill – giving a homely feel, sliding sash windows are brand new, a limestone flag stone floor with underfloor heating will keep you cosy all year round, traditional joinery on pine beams and wide ceiling boards, along with traditionally nailed floor boards in reclaimed pine.

The staircase also features alternating paddle steps.

On the first floor, you can step out onto the wrap around balcony, originally used to pull the ropes to turn the windmill sales in and out of the wind. The whole balcony has been renovated with bolted double plank boards and all the metal work has been restored and repainted in its original black.

On the third floor is a very tasteful bathroom with a stand-alone bath, sink and toilet.

Moving outside, large double patio doors lead out to a sunny, private fenced garden, with a York stone patio to the rear of the building looking over the river.

The front of the mill has enough parking space for four cars and is also spacious enough to take a large motor home or caravan with adequate turning space.
