A Grade II Listed former water mill offering substantial accommodation of enormous character, situated in a peaceful corner of the vibrant market town of Pickering.

It is believed that there has been a water mill on the site of Vivers Mill since 1198. The mill that stands today is largely 16th-19th century, operating for centuries as a corn mill before its conversion to a private residence some 50 years ago. At this time, the mill underwent a comprehensive renovation programme, to create a very versatile and extensive family home.

An architecturally interesting building, all of its history is very much present and showcased throughout. Fabulous original features are displayed in abundance, with exposed beams and brickwork, vaulted ceilings and the fully functioning water wheel and mill race itself; no two rooms are the same. Much care and attention has been paid to preserve and maintain the property, with extensive recent renovations to suit modern family life.

Totalling over 6000 square feet over four floors, the accommodation is extensive and incredibly versatile. Every room is well-proportioned and blessed with natural light, briefly comprising: a number of reception rooms, a stunning master suite and guest suite both with a dressing room and contemporary bathroom, 3 further en suite bedrooms, study, gym, wheel house, workshop and store rooms. Externally, the property continues to impress with a fully enclosed and private lawned garden with storage shed and patio. There is a detached timber garage and ample off-street parking for several vehicles.

Vivers Mill is ideally situated in a peaceful lane on the edge of Pickering with pleasant views over the beck and adjoining fields, yet just a short walk to the town centre. Pickering itself is a vibrant and bustling market town, popular with tourists and residents alike due to its excellent range of shops and facilities, which include a supermarket, numerous restaurants and pubs and schooling from infant to secondary levels. The area is also an ideal base from which to enjoy the nearby North Yorkshire Moors and coastal area as well as being a commutable distance from Malton and York.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
