Bardwell Windmill and an adjacent four-bed cottage are up for sale with Bedfords with a guide price of £650,000





Having undergone continual restoration since the Great Storm of 1987, Bardwell Windmill and its adjacent four-bedroom cottage are now up for sale.

The Grade II*-listed mill, which dates back to around 1830 and which is the current home of Woosters Bakery, is now a fully working mill with two sets of stones, one powered by the sails and the other electrically driven.

Together with the cottage, the property, which sits on a plot of around a quarter of an acre, includes a retail barn and store.

It is being marketed by Bedfords, Bury St Edmunds, with a guide price of £650,000.

The Victorian cottage, which while in good repair would benefit from some updating, comprises a sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, ground floor shower room and four bedrooms, accessed via two staircases.

Renovations to the mill have included a new cap (2000) and new sails and fan tail (2010-2014), together with renewed windows and doors.
