This impressive Grade II listed windmill has been cleverly converted and added to over recent years and now offers versatile accommodation, comprising an impressive entrance hall with oak floor and underfloor heating and a custom-made solid wood front door. A bespoke cast iron staircase leads to a first-floor bedroom and modern en suite shower room. There is a generous sitting room with wonderful views into the garden through the patio doors, an open fire with stone surround and oak floor with a solid oak staircase leading to another impressive double bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and a comprehensive range of wardrobes and a modern en suite shower room. The current vendors have extended the ground floor to provide a wonderfully light and functional, open-plan kitchen/dining/family room. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units in a high gloss finish with granite work surfaces, range cooker and a dishwasher. The windmill itself comprises a beautiful ground-floor dining room with original beams to the walls and ceiling, a bespoke oak staircase leads to the second floor, currently used as a bedroom, the third floor is a family bathroom and then a dressing room with a range of fitted wardrobes. The top floor is the most impressive, with views over miles of surrounding countryside. The remainder of the ground floor comprises a side hall with stairs leading to another bedroom/office and walk-in loft space, currently used as storage. The heated swimming pool is located off the side hall and leads to a changing room and utility room beyond, fitted with a range of wall and base units, plumbing and space for washing machine and access to the garden.
Approaching half an acre of landscaped gardens, comprising a large area of lawn with mature trees and planting offering a good degree of privacy and open fields surrounding, offering far-reaching views over farmland. Included is a summerhouse, a large area of patio which is south facing and access to the swimming pool.
A driveway provides off-road parking to the front of the property.
The neighbouring business will be wound down in approximately 2026, with the option for sale offered as first refusal to the owners of The Windmill.
Swavesey itself has a diverse community and is popular with families, due to the successful Primary School and Outstanding Ofsted-rated Village College. There is a convenience store with Post Office and a thatched village shop situated in an historic market square, as well as various churches, a coffee shop, butchers and farm shop and a public house serving a wide range of real ales. On the green sits an attractive pavilion, used by the community. Swavesey is also fortunate to have the wonderful RSPB nature reserve at Fen Drayton lakes leading to miles of walks along the river and a stop for the guided bus. With the completion of the expansion to the A14, residents now benefit from better-flowing traffic, cycle paths and additional local byroads. The village also has a stop for the guided bus, which travels through the nature reserve to St Ives and Cambridge city centre and Addenbrookes. Parallel to the track is a cycle path which is popular for runners, cyclists and walkers.
