Life’s a beach

Converted windmill requiring renovation on the beach at Aldeburgh in Suffolk for sale for £1.2 million

 

Many dream of living by the sea but for someone in search of such, there couldn’t be anything more perfect than The Old Mill House at Fort Green in Suffolk. It literally borders the sea wall and is for sale for £1.2 million ($1.9 million, €1.7 million).

The house will appeal to someone wanting to live directly on a beach

 

Situated just to the south of Aldeburgh – a smart coastal resort where roughly a third of residential properties are second homes and whose residents have included the composer Benjamin Britten and the footballer Roy Keane – Fort Green Windmill (as it is locally known) was built in 1824 and converted into a house in 1902. Two adjoining cottages were constructed at a later date and are now separately owned.

 

In need of renovation and having what selling agents Flick & Son and Savills describe as “enormous potential to extend”, the 2,258 square foot building consists of three sections: A four storey tower providing four bedrooms and a bathroom, a former gun tower and a 29-foot by 15-foot drawing room. The sale price also includes a garage, a courtyard and a garden.

Trains to London’s Liverpool Street Station take approximately 65 minutes. The catch? A car park popular with tourists is literally next door.

  1. Who’d want to pay that much to adjoin a car park? Bonkers. And the cost of maintaining it from salt damage is going to be ludicrous. Forget it.
