A most impressive character residence situated in Dalehouse on the riverside of Staithes Beck with sporting rights. The property is set within a picturesque plot of approximately six acres which includes a variety of outbuildings. We have been informed there are 3 stables and 5 garages on the site. There could be potential for business use as 5 holiday lets or Bed and Breakfast.
Impeccably presented and sympathetically decorated maintaining the original charm and elegance in keeping with the era the property was built, we highly recommend viewing to fully appreciate both the calibre of the home and the surrounding grounds and outbuildings.
There is a large historic value to this site and the ruins of the mill are mentioned in the doomsday book.The current mill house and grade II listed bridge on the site are also linked to the era that captain cook was undergoing his sea apprenticeship in Staithes village.
There are many areas of land throughout the village that are suggested, but not registered, as belonging to the mill including a large stone weir.
Freehold. Vacant possession upon completion.

Auction Type – Conditional with Reservation Fee
If you are the highest bidder when the auction for the property comes to an end, you will enter into a reservation agreement with the seller. You must then pay the applicable reservation fee. You will then have 40 business days within which to exchange contracts and complete the sale, unless the Special Conditions of Sale contained within the legal pack specify a different time limit. If you fail to do so, you may lose your reservation fee. During the 40-business day reservation period, the seller is not able to accept other offers.
The following non-refundable fees apply:
- Reservation Fee- payable immediately when the auction ends. This is calculated as a percentage of the actual purchase price of the property. Either:
(a) 4.8% (including VAT) of the purchase price, for properties up to and including £250,000
(b) 3.6% (including VAT) of the purchase price for properties sold for over £250,000
The Reservation Fee is subject always to a minimum of £6,000 (including VAT). The Reservation Fee does not contribute to the purchase price.
This property is listed under the Conditional with Reservation Fee sale method, therefore the deposit will be payable on exchange of contracts and executed via the solicitors. The amount to be paid will be listed in the Special Conditions of Sale.
Applicable fees must be paid immediately after a winning bid has been placed. We do not accept payment by cash or cheque. Prior to the auction, we will email you to register your card details with our third-party provider, Stripe. Your card details will be stored on their secure online payment platform. Payment will only be taken from you in the event of a winning bid. In this case, you will be contacted by one of our representatives to make payment. If we cannot make contact with you within 24 hours after the auction ends, we reserve the right to charge your card.

The legal pack can change at any time up until the auction starts so you must check for the most recent version of the legal pack. An addendum may be issued outlining any late changes.
