A waterside home within the exclusive Castle Mills development in Knaresborough, has sold within three days of being brought to the market by Dacres.

Weir House, enjoys a prime location in this sought after residential area of the town, overlooking the River Nidd’s weir, with an attractive terrace garden that adjoins the river.

Recently extended, the three bedroom home has a superb open plan contemporary interior, which is ideal for modern living. The sitting room has bi-fold doors to the garden room and both have French doors which lead onto the terrace, providing spectacular views over the river. The sitting room also opens back into the modern breakfast kitchen, and there is flexible living accommodation over the next two floors.  

Senior Associate Nick Alcock, who is the Branch Manager at our Knaresborough office, says: “Weir Cottage was snapped up quickly by someone who just fell in love with its setting and lovely interior. This part of Knaresborough is arguably the most sought after residential location in the town, within easy reach of the excellent shopping, recreational and schooling facilities on offer and Weir Cottage enjoys one of the best positions on the riverside.”

We are also marketing another waterside property within the former mill complex, which dates back to 1764. Nick adds: “11 Castle Mills is a lovely one bedroom home on the top floor, so it has amazing views of the river. It also stands out because its interior is stunning.

“Having been fully upgraded throughout, the open plan sitting/dining room is light and airy and the modern kitchen is equally impressive. Both have lovely river views. The double bedroom benefits from built-in wardrobes and the en-suite has a huge walk-in shower and contemporary radiator.  The apartment could also easily be converted back into a two-bedroom property if the prospective purchaser so wished.”

Outside, the communal gardens lead down onto the river, and there is also a separate garage and store. Castle Mills is a Grade II listed building that was a flax mill from 1770 to 1972, producing fine quality linen, which was granted the Royal Warrant by Queen Victoria as suppliers to the Royal Palaces.


Nick adds: “This home has all the character of the former Mill, but also benefits from a fresh modern design within. On the market for £249,950, the apartment is within easy reach of the town centre.”
