Amazing

Fancy sleeping in bed five storeys up? That’s four flights of stairs and one ladder up to the top of this converted windmill.

So while it might take you a while to get to bed, its posh underfloor heating will at least make sure you’ll have warm feet while you’re on your journey.

This unusual mill home is located in Louth, Lincolnshire and sports incredible views of the local countryside and river.

The mill was built in 1847 and since it’s stopped milling flour it’s gone through numerous disastrous renovations, but luckily it’s now in excellent condition.

All the floors have been replaced, along with the domed roof of the now swanky mill.

According to Tepilo estate agent, “In its day the mill would have been the glory of the village being one of very few combination wind and watermills in the whole country.

“It now boasts a luxury, but very traditional interior that is extremely pleasing to the eye. This property would make a lovely home, or a very lucrative Holiday let.”

The weird home may be narrow, but it’s by no means small – a ground floor extension has created a large open space for the lounge and outside the front of the house is enough parking space for four cars.

Along with a cosy log burner, this home also comes with a wraparound balcony on the first floor. This balcony was originally used to turn the sails of the mill into the winds.

Despite the building having all the mod cons of any modern property, the owners have used old pictures of the mill to keep it looking traditional.

The whole building is full of traditional joinery from pine beams to wide ceiling boards and even the floorboards have been traditionally nailed in.
