A home like this rarely comes to the open market, probably because it has been in the same family for generations. So now is the time to be able to jump at this opportunity to snatch up this unbelievable deal. Whether it’s to live in as the most unique family home in the area or to rent out to people not lucky enough to be able to buy such a magnificent place.
This fabulous home is somewhere I, and I suspect many others have been driving past for years thinking, ‘ooh, I’d love to live there’ – well now, this is your chance!! This is one of the very few habitable windmills in the North West and it’s the real epitome of the phrase ‘Character Property’. However, unlike many properties carrying this label, this is in perfect condition internally and externally and offers a cosy and very versatile workable family home.
Set in a commanding position, as you would expect and sitting in large enclosed manicured gardens, offering a variety of scenes and atmospheres, with a range of useful outbuildings this majestic home literally towers over the town.
Entering the grounds via the large gateway, a broad drive sweeps past well kept lawns, which you will have to keep looking nice, as the present owner is unwilling to come back and mow them once you’ve moved in, to the multiple parking areas at the side of the outbuildings.
Continuing around the home we come to an enclosed patio and BBQ area, separated by yet more lawn before the greenhouse and vegetable plot becomes visible. Re-approaching the road side of the plot we find another area of lawn, with an ornamental pond and as an ornament, the original grinding stone sits beside the water in tribute to its glory days as a working flour mill. This section of the garden has been fenced off as a safety measure to prevent accidents to youngsters becoming too adventurous and adjoins the main lawn to the front of the home, which brings us back to the main gate.
Climbing the steps to the front door we enter the hallway where, to our right, is the downstairs sitting room / dining room. This generously sized room is semicircular in shape and has ample room for a six seat dining table and a large sofa with bookcases and TV stand. To the rear of the home on the left is the kitchen.
Now the kitchen occupies the next quarter of the space and this is a work of art. Bespoke curved work surfaces sit atop fitted units all around the outer wall and provide all the storage space you could need, while the inner wall houses the cooker hob, vertical tower oven and further units, all in a very attractive antique oak, matching perfectly with the enormous and fully structural beams found throughout this home. At the outer end of this wall is a store/utility room housing the washing machine, tumble drier and the fully serviced gas combi boiler.
Moving back towards the hall we find the remaining quarter of this floor contains the downstairs bathroom. Units beneath the hand basin continue the antique oak theme from the kitchen. There is a large linen cupboard in here, along with a lavatory and the luxury of a spa bath with a shower over.
Back into the hall and up the stairs – which we should point out that there are 64 from ground to top floor - brings us to the lounge.
Obviously it is a circular room and really is quite vast as it covers the entire floor and is kept wonderfully light due to the three large windows and two French doors, that gives access to the fantastic walkway all around the outside of the home. This place really is like no other. Imagine the parties that you can hold here, in fact, you’d think about charging your friends and family to pop round, the views are amazing, not only from this level but also the level above this – yes there’s more!
Anyway, I get carried away.....back inside the lounge is a large bookcase and surround to the feature real flame gas fire. Obviously, as you’d expect, these are bespoke, as they are fitted to the curve of the outer wall. There is further storage in a cupboard to one side of the doorway, which utilises the under-stair space from the staircase that spirals its way around the building.
This clever use of space is a feature found on every floor, providing many useful nooks and crannies – ideal if you have kids who love to play hide-and-seek.
Up the next flight of stairs, it brings us to the principle bedroom. This is a very comfortable double with masses of cupboard space beneath the stairs, before we even begin with the huge free standing wardrobe which in turn leaves more than enough space for the dressing table and other bits and bobs.
Adjacent to this is a shower room. Containing a hand basin, lavatory and walk-in power shower which is fed directly from the mains via the combi boiler and although not quite an en-suite, it has all the convenience of one as there is no one else on this floor to share it with!
Moving up another floor we find two rooms of a similar size. One currently is being used as a bedroom and the other in use as an office but easily interchangeable. Should an office be considered vital, I’d be using the top, top floor, you’ll see what I mean when you get there. What amazes me is the thickness of the walls, even at this height, they have to measure 15 inches and give off an incredible feeling of security and strength. But I suppose that is hardly surprising in a building similar in construction to a lighthouse.
Up the final flight of stairs and into the loft space where we find another large circular room (obviously) which occupies the whole floor, it gives an even larger feel of size due to its very high ceiling. There is a mezzanine level which currently has a bed in there and also plays host to a very handy en-suite, which when you live here, you’ll be so glad is there.
Now, if I lived here it would make an excellent games room or even office. The level below the mezzanine offers ample space for a double bed and plenty of other bedroom furniture. This room is basically two rooms converted into one magnificent space.
Originally this room once housed the drive shafts from the sails that powered the mill, the shaft remains in place still just to remind you of its heritage, not that I think you’ll need reminding.
From the mezzanine, you step out onto the upper walkway and your breath is taken from you (literally if you don’t like heights !!). The Wirral, Liverpool Bay and the entire Dee estuary stretch out before you and the inhabitants of Holywell scurry about like insects at your feet. It really is fabulous up here, if you need inspiration, just step outside up here and you’ll get inspired rather quickly.….
If you are happier with your feet on the ground, we shall explore the out buildings. At the rear of the plot is a block of buildings crying out for conversion and the possibilities are endless. There was planning permission once to convert these into living accommodation, however, you’ll need to apply again as this lapsed many years ago.
One outbuilding is currently used mainly as workshop space, but these could be offices or with a little imagination converted into living accommodation, with the possibility of an annexe for elderly relatives, returning youngsters unable to get a foothold on the property ladder, teenagers not quite old enough to fly the nest but wanting a taste of independence, yet still within the safety net of home, or even as an AirBnB rental…..I mean how many tourists would pay to stay in a Windmill - I can't imagine there are that many in the UK??
From here, the world is your oyster because this home really is the stuff dreams are made of…..
