Perhaps one of the most intriguing and rare development opportunities comprising this historic and iconic Grade II Listed former windmill, located in a favoured part of this popular coastal town and which has far-reaching views to both Dartmoor and the sea.

Apart from converting the existing structure the property will benefit from a single storey extension to add a contemporary element to offer this development a real ‘wow factor’ appealing to developers and owner occupiers alike who will have visions of creating a real ‘Grand Designs’ family home.

Interested applicants are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority, the Torbay Council. Tel: 01803 201201. Website: torbay.gov.uk.
