Such an object almost never passes by! But now you have the chance to live or recreate in a piece of Dutch history: a former polder mill. This mill has been beautifully restored and converted into a (recreational) home. This former polder mill is currently in use as a two-person holiday home and has numerous authentic details, surprisingly combined with contemporary colors, furniture and accessories. Upon entering you will find a sitting area with sofa and armchair in front of the window, a dining table with two chairs and a simple kitchen with an induction hob. On the first floor is the bedroom with a double bed with a view of the so-called “gaitwork” of the mill. From your bed you can look through the glass ceiling at the wooden gear, an impressive sight when the mill starts moving again. The bathroom has been modernized in an authentic style and offers you a beautiful panoramic view of the meadows while showering.

The total area of ​​both plots is approximately 1035 m² (0.25 acres). The garden is located around the mill and is beautifully and tastefully decorated. About 12 solar panels have recently been installed (approx. 380 WP each), making energy costs very low. Ground floor layout: Entrance at the front where you enter the attractive living room with authentic kitchen and access to the extensive basement with a modern toilet and shower, decorated in a tasteful and old style. First floor: You reach the cozy bedroom via a fixed staircase. From your bed you have a beautiful view of the “going work” of the mill in the attic. Second floor: Through a hatch in the ceiling you approach the “engine room” with the mechanism of the mill.

The current destination is residential, with the owner currently using the house as a B&B and renting it out as a recreational home. But regular living for permanent use is also possible here. There are possibilities on the plot to change and move the building surface, which may allow an additional miller’s house to be built on the northern plot. This plan has already been discussed with the municipality and the municipality has indicated that there are options for this. However, the new owner must request and investigate this at his own expense.
