Converted Windmill for Sale: Grays, Essex

18 Jul
July 18, 2012

A majestic listed 5 bedroom steam mill / windmill for sale.

Thought to date from 1674, Baker Street Mills is a magnificent hexagonal windmill. One of the last three examples of a smock mill remaining in Essex, which is now Listed grade II. It was an operating windmill until 1912 from when it fell into disrepair and then restored into a private residence in 1981. The current vendors completed their restoration of the windmill in 1999 including the renovation of the sails which are fully operational.

The windmill itself has been converted into fabulous accommodation which is complemented by the converted Victorian steam mill. Much of the original workings of both mills have been retained and incorporated within the accommodation giving a real feel of the past and heritage of this magnificent residence.

The Mill stands within grounds extending to about 10 acres, accessed via electrically operated gates. The property also features a double garage, pool house and what every pool house needs, a swimming pool.

Asking price of £1,500,000
