This is an opportunity to acquire a unique character property set in a quiet picturesque lane in this very vibrant village.

Harbury Windmill is a Grade II-listed building erected in the first decade of the 19th century. It is a tower type mill and is visible from many positions.

It is constructed of brick and stone, which is thought to have originated from Chesterton Manor when demolished in 1802. The walls of the two lower floors are of stone (probably limestone) and the upper floors are of dark red brick giving a total of six floors.

The height of the tower is 60ft and the cap is another ten feet making it the tallest in Warwickshire. It had a cap in the shape of an upturned boat, which has been altered in recent years to a pitched roof type.

Milling ceased in 1952 and after some years it was used as an engineering workshop. In 1982 a rather larger looking pitched roof type replaced the boat shaped cap. In 1988 the lower floors became part of a home.

The accommodation comprises: ground floor - the dining room has a feature stone fireplace old York stone flooring, wall lights and wooden staircase leading to first floor; a fully-fitted kitchen with outlook and access to courtyard garden area; utility and separate WC. First floor – lounge, bathroom one and bedrooms one and two. Second floor - bathroom two, bedroom three. Third floor - bedroom four. Fourth floor - millstone feature. Bedroom five is located on the fifth floor. Outdoors: car parking for two vehicles; courtyard garden area with planted floral borders.

The windmill has maintained original features including exposed beams throughout and original mill workings.

Viewing is highly recommended for anyone with a sense of adventure looking to acquire a property with history and character.
