Gardens encompass the property with the rear garden featuring a 'swim spa', and a substantial patio & decked area; perfect for summers entertaining with breath taking views across the fields and coast beyond. Chislet Mill had been a working mill until 1916 when it had the misfortune to lose its sails and top in a gale. It is later recorded that during the Second World War, Barnes Wallis who lived in the Mill House next door, used the top of the original windmill as his vantage point to observe the tests in developing the bouncing bombs across the sea at ReculverThe location is truly beautiful and is constantly changing with the seasons, meaning your views are never the same!This remarkable property has been built to an extremely high standard and internal viewing is essential to appreciate all on offer.Call Kent Estate Agencies on 01227 367441 for further information.Location:Chislet Mill is situated within the historic Saxon hamlet of Reculver, a designated area of Special Protection and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
