mills Living in unusual homes

An article in the Daily Mail money section considers the problems of financing and living in unusual buildings. It covers a dovecote, glasshouse, narrowboat and two mills.

The watermill is at Aberfeldy in Perthshire. Here Kathleen and Tom Rodger bought a derelict mill in 1983, and spent £200,000 of the profits of their modern mill and shop in Cupar, to restore it to a working state milling oats. With the death of Tom last year, the mill is on the market along with a visitors centre and tearoom in the adjacent barn, for £250,000 through Pavilions of Splendour.

The windmill covered is at West Chiltington, Sussex. Converted to a home in 1923, it now has 4 beds and an annex, but only retains 2 sails to reduce the weight on the wooden structure. This has just been sold by Kathryn and Colin Johnson who lived there for 22 years, for £550,000. Mills: [West Chiltington] Tags: [#converted]
