A rare and unique opportunity to purchase a wonderful Grade II Listed former windmill, which has been beautifully converted and sympathetically restored over recent years to provide stylish and well presented accommodation. History We understand that Barnham Windmill was built in 1829 and originally known as Feaver's Mill. It was completely re-fitted by J W Holloway, a Shoreham millwright, in 1890 and was powered by wind until the early 1920's, when it was converted to engine power, which then ran until 1963. The mill was used by the army during World War II as an observation post, notifying RAF Tangmere of approaching enemy aircraft. In 2008 Arun District Council gave listed planning consent for the conversion of the mill and ancillary mill buildings. The developer carefully restored the machinery, which can be seen as part of the fabric of the mill itself. The accommodation comprises stable door to Entrance Hall, Kitchen/Dining Room fitted with an excellent range of wall and base units with granite worktops, built-in sink unit with mixer tap incorporating Franke hot tap. Integrated appliances include a Rangemaster cooker with cooker hood, Zanussi fridge and freezer, AEG microwave and dishwasher and wine fridge. There is a Cloakroom with low level WC, wash hand basin and space for washing machine and tumble dryer. A Utility/Storage Area is located off the Kitchen/Dining Room and houses a water softener, space and plumbing for washing machine, the internal sprinkler system for the property and the air circulation system. From the Kitchen/Dining Room a staircase leads to the First Floor Landing with access to the roof space. There are two double Bedrooms, a Study and a Bathroom which is fitted with a panelled bath and shower unit, vanity unit with inset wash hand basin and low level WC. The Windmill The impressive Sitting Room, which is approached from the Entrance Hall, has ceiling beams, a central pillar and a staircase to the First Floor Landing. The double aspect Master Bedroom features restored windmill machinery and eaves storage. To the second floor there is a Victorian style Bathroom with rolltop bath with claw feet, mixer tap and shower attachment, tiled shower cubicle with mixed deluge head and separate hand held shower, wash stand with large wash hand basin and high level WC. The Lookout on the third floor features an arched window, further restored windmill machinery, mood lighting and a wrought iron ladder to a Mezzanine which enjoys far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Outside there are two allocated parking spaces, two wooden stores and an outside water tap.
