The property at Tower Road in Burnham Overy Staithe, Norfolk’s most expensive villages to buy a home, has come up for sale with Sowerbys and offers four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a large double aspect sitting room.

Thanks to its prime location on the edge of the River Burn, the converted mill enjoys stunning views and light and airy interiors with a mezzanine floor creating a useful study area and a bespoke fitted kitchen overlooking the water.

On the ground floor, you can even find the original mill wheel and the sluice where the sound of water gushing past evokes a sense of the building’s rich history.

Dating back to 1791, the Grade II listed mill buildings were acquired by the National Trust in 1939, two years before work ceased at the mill. The National Trust then undertook an award-winning redevelopment of the buildings, transforming them into nine dwellings in the early 1990s with the help of Kit Martin CBE, the celebrated architect renowned for his work saving and restoring country houses by converting them into smaller, more usable properties. Mr Martin also worked on Gunton Park, north Norfolk, and the St Nicholas Royal Naval Hospital in Great Yarmouth.
