Windmill renovation to include mezzanine floor

Posted by Marianne

A disused 19th century Cambridgeshire windmill is about to be transformed into residential accommodation with an extensive renovation, including the installation of a viewing platform on a new  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level.

Two local families, the Rutterfords and the Lockwoods, have just had plans approved by East Cambridgeshire District Council to construct a four bedroom house and a three bedroom bungalow on the site, using the windmill as a central feature.

The three-storey Grade II listed windmill was built over 150 years ago and is now in a poor state of repair with no sails or roof. It has no remaining internal features and is missing many of its windows.

The families are keen to retain as many of the original features as possible and intend making no alterations to the outside of the building. The two environmentally friendly homes will be heated by an underfloor system and linked to the mill by means of a glazed walkway.

The windmill will be topped by a new cap fitted with solar panels, while a viewing area on the mezzanine floor will be fully glazed and offer an impressive view over the Fens, allowing the perfect location for night time star gazing.

An old piggery in front of the windmill will be demolished so that the impressive height of the mill can be seen from the road, and the installation of the mezzanine level will give the mill a new role while ensuring that the external features remain intact.
