5 bed Detached House
Millers Court, Whitstable
A unique and exciting opportunity to acquire one of Whitstable's most iconic buildings. The Black Windmill is a Grade II Listed property dating from about 1815 and enjoys an elevated position from where it commands unrivalled panoramic views across the town, Whitstable bay and the sea beyond.
The main house was built circa 1928 and together with the original Windmill provides 3643 sq ft (338 sq m) of well-presented and versatile accommodation which retains a wealth of original features. Comprising a generous reception hall, three reception rooms, a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, two studies, a second kitchen/utility room, garden room with WC, shower and sink, five bedrooms (four doubles) two bathrooms and two further washrooms.
The beautifully tended mature gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property surrounding the house on three sides, including a secluded natural stone terrace to the rear of the building. Within the gardens there is also a vegetable plot and access to a useful undercroft storage area within the base of the Windmill. There is a large garage with an integral workshop and it's own driveway, providing off road parking for several vehicles. In addition, there is a gated driveway with generous parking and vehicular access to Bayview Road.
The Black Windmill, although currently arranged as an exceptional family home has been used in the past as a restaurant and bed and breakfast, and permission was previously granted for change of use (in part) for a health spa and two separate residential dwellings. As such, the building offers scope for a variety of uses (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).
