This week’s property price twins are two unusual countryside retreats that are both on the market for £365,000. Which one would you want to own?

1. Three bedroom detached house in Ferry Road, Horning, Norfolk, for £365,000

First up is this unique Grade II listed converted windmill that sits on the banks of the River Bure. The windmill could be a quirky family home, but it is currently run as a successful holiday let, which already has bookings in place and generates an income of more than £28,000 a year.

It’s not hard to see why the property is popular with holiday makers as the windmill is full of charm and has stunning unspoilt views of the river. It is believed to have been converted in the 1920’s and has since been modernised throughout. The octagonal ground floor comprises of a kitchen, lounge, dining area, three bedrooms and a shower room.

The first floor is accessible via a loft hatch in the dining room and is currently used as a storage space. This area also provides a door out onto the fibreglass flat roof, which is the perfect spot to take in the beautiful landscape.

Outside is equally as special as the inside, with more than 50ft of river frontage and a private 36ft mooring to be enjoyed by guests or the new owners. There is also a south facing garden that is laid to lawn and a decked area that runs around the mill.

2. Four bedroom detached house in Pentrecagal, Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthenshire, for £365,000

Our second property is this intelligently designed family home sat in the rolling hills of the Teifi Valley. Built in 2001, the local architect who designed the house aimed to achieve an individual property that meshed with the surrounding countryside and looked like a traditional Welsh farmhouse.

The house seamlessly blends together a combination of modern living with traditional country styles. Downstairs has the bonus of under floor heating, but for the colder nights there is also a log burner, which sits in a gorgeous feature fireplace.

There is no shortage of space in the property with the ground floor consisting of an open plan lounge and conservatory, dining room, kitchen and laundry room. The first floor comprises of two double bedrooms with en suites, a third bedroom with built in wardrobes, a family bathroom and a study area which could be converted into a fourth bedroom.    

Outside there is a quintessential country garden, most of which is laid to lawn, but also includes a wild life pond, a large south facing terrace and an area of wild garden. The house is bordered by a stone wall on one side, while the other is bordered by a stream and woodlands.    

The house is located in a village about two miles from the market town of Newcastle Emlyn, which offers shops, public houses, schools, places of worship and a leisure centre. For active families, both Cardigan Bay and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park are within a 40 minute drive from the house.
