Ad­dress: The Black Wind­mill, Millers Court, Borstal Hill, Whit­stable Price: £1.295m Agent: Kent Es­tate Agen­cies This land­mark wind­mill has peered out across the sea at Whit­stable for 200 years.

The grade II listed black weath­er­boarded smock mill was built in 1814, with the rest of the house added around 100 years later.

The five/six bed­room home, the Black Wind­mill at Millers Court, Borstal Hill, has seen ser­vice as a restau­rant and a bed and break­fast ho­tel and is priced at £1.295m with Kent Es­tate Agen­cies.

A wide tim­ber front door leads into the main part of the house, which has a 23ft kitchen/break­fast room with ter­ra­cotta tiled floor and chim­ney breast. There is a din­ing/ sit­ting room, a util­ity room, boot room and down­stairs cloak­room. A stu­dio room could make an ad­di­tional bed­room.

The five bed­rooms are on the first and sec­ond floor of the main house, with three bath­rooms.

Head­ing back to the front hall, a door leads into an oc­tag­o­nal re­cep­tion room within the orig­i­nal wind­mill, which has beams and a stair­case lead­ing to the wind­mill’s first floor.

Here there is a sit­ting room, com­plete with orig­i­nal flour bag­ging equip­ment. This room has ex­ten­sive coastal views and the orig­i­nal lad­der leads to the four up­per lev­els of the wind­mill.

The re­cently re­fur­bished prop­erty of­fers sub­stan­tial ac­com­mo­da­tion for a large fam­ily, two fam­i­lies, or could re­vert to com­mer­cial use, sub­ject to per­mis­sion.

The Black Wind­mill stands on a large plot with land­scaped gar­dens. There is a separate garage and park­ing for a number of ve­hi­cles.
