New Holiday Let: Mill House, West Sussex, UK

With exceptional views across the South Downs, this property brings together a converted 19th-century mill house and granary, with a new house completed in 2016 by RIBA-award winning architect Sarah Featherstone of Featherstone Young.

The original Grade-II listed windmill was built in 1866 as one of a pair, known locally as ‘Jack’ and ‘Jill’. The main house, completed in 2016, sits between the two mills and is based on the original dwelling built on the site for Henry Longhurst in the 1960s. Sarah Featherstone’s design has reimagined and modernised the original property, adding a punched aluminium facade in a seed-scatter pattern in reference to the agricultural past of the site.

The house uses the traditional black-and-white vernacular of Sussex mills, whilst the converted granary has preserved the original timber of the structure in a modern triple-height space with floor-to-ceiling glass. The original underground tunnel links ‘Jack Windmill’ to the granary.

There are a total of seven bedrooms across the main house and the granary, sleeping up to 17 guests.
