A rare windmill house has been put on the market for almost a million pounds.
The Grade II-listed house near Ashford, which dates back to the early 19th century, comes complete with its four sails.
The property in Charing is on the market for offers in the region of £945,000 and is marketed by Andrew & Co, Ashford via OnTheMarket.
Jo Rogers and her family moved into the windmill - which was already converted into a home - when her parents purchased it and the surrounding buildings on the estate in 2002.
She said: “In 2002 we all decided to sell our houses and move to Ashford. My parents purchased the estate and over the years, each family group has taken turns in living in the windmill itself.
“It’s very unique because it still has the sails intact and it is referred to as a smock windmill because it’s in the shape of a dress.”
Inside, the property has three bedrooms with the option of using one as a study in the upper floor of the windmill.
There is a large reception room in the main windmill, with further bedrooms above. There is also access to a roof terrace, offering the breath-taking views of the surrounding area.
The extension of the windmill provides a kitchen, large bedroom, bathroom, and further reception room or bedroom.From here there is also access to the garden and patio area.
There is also a double garage and parking complete with a gated entrance.
Mrs Rogers added: “The views are magnificent, especially from the top. You can even see to Dungeness.
“We will be sad to see it go because not everyone can say they own a windmill. We want to see our treasured family home go to someone who will appreciate it and love it like we do.”
Martin Randall, Assistant Branch Manager at Andrew & Co, described the house as "a rare find".
"It's especially rare to find windmills that are renovated and in such great condition," he continued.
“The location is really special, too, with such spectacular views.
“This property has such great character and has been so well looked after by Jo and her family.”
