Canal Side, Ebridge Mill, White Common, near North Walsham is for sale for £425,000 with Arnolds Keys.

In an idyllic waterside location, this is the first home to be completed as part of a luxury conversion of a historic Victorian flour mill on the former North Walsham and Dilham Canal.

With balconies on all floors, and superb views over the mill pond and surrounding water meadows, the three-storey home is part of an exclusive development by Norfolk-based specialists Barn Owl Conversions.

The new three-bedroom home is exceptionally spacious and has a wealth of character features, which have been sympathetically retained within the fabric of the building. These include original wooden beams, one of which is a ship’s mast, salvaged from Bacton Beach when the mill was first built, and some of the old machinery.

Part of the mill’s former granary, Canal Side does not stint on modern luxury, however. A huge 23ft 2ins by 17ft 10ins kitchen-dining room comes complete with a range cooker and an American-style fridge-freezer, as well as a full-width balcony overlooking the canal.

On the first floor there is an even bigger sitting room, alongside a study area, again with a full-width balcony. On the second floor is the 24ft master bedroom, with its en-suite shower room and full-width balcony over the canal. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom on this level too.

The house benefits from under-floor heating, and has a private canal-side garden, with steps leading down to the canal itself, and a double open cart shed garage.

Canal Side is the first of nine luxury homes being created at Ebridge Mill, which is just a short drive from North Walsham.
