Full Description
DESCRIPTION Dating back to the beginning of the 19th Century, Paper Mill House offers a unique opportunity to make your home in this peaceful and sought after village location of the historic Nordham area in North Cave.

History and Overview

The Georgian red brick mill and worker's cottages were skilfully and sensitively converted in the 1970s to create this charming secluded five-bedroom property. Straddling the old mill race, along with private fishing rights, the property is now a comfortable five-bedroom home with spacious interiors retaining much of the character of the original buildings. To preserve the historic integrity of the building, the front façade, complete with decorative ironwork, is Grade II listed, and the whole complex is nestled in a spectacular private location with a one-acre paddock, well established gardens, decked bridges and mature trees.

The House

The property boasts an impressive 3600sq ft of living space. On the ground floor is an entrance hall, boot room, utility room and cloakroom through to a bespoke open-plan kitchen, with hand-built cabinets and specially designed space for cooking and entertaining. A cosy 'snug' living area with log burner completes the ground floor living space. On the first floor there is an airy living room with views over the garden and beck, a stunning principal bedroom suite with French doors and a balcony, plus three more bedrooms and a bathroom. Finally, on the second floor you'll find the large fifth bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and Velux windows complete with dressing room. This could be ideal to use as a teenage suite or a gym.


The property has an integral garage with a large storage area, and outside, the beautifully planted and landscaped rear gardens feature two decked bridges that cross the shallow chalk-stream waters as they meander through the property, giving it a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. As well as offering a wonderful natural haven for wildlife in the more natural sections of the garden, the formal lawns, edged with well-established low box hedging, tall beech hedges, and paved areas of seating also create a sheltered and enviable setting for year-round enjoyment. Raised brick borders, plenty of outdoor lighting, and an oak-framed covered barbecue means this is a perfect garden to entertain in. Away from the house you'll find a grassy wooded paddock of just over an acre, and, at intervals throughout the grounds, specimen trees, filled with birdsong, create interest and harmony between the historic building and it's idyllic surroundings.


Due to the unique location on a mill race, it's been established that Paper Mill House has the potential to create its own clean energy with the installation of a Hydro Power system.

Location and Connectivity

Paper Mill House is the sole property situated on a no-through road and enjoys direct access along ancient footpaths to the convenient amenities of North Cave, including the village school, a village shop with post office, the church, a well-supported sports field and its facilities, a public house, a fish & chip shop, a café and a village hall.

While North Cave feels like a remote countryside location, links to the rest of the country are superb given the proximity of the A63/M62, just a five-minute drive away, plus there are fast train services to Leeds and London from nearby Brough which means commuting is no problem.

The award winning Drewton's Farm Shop and Williams Den are also within a few minutes' drive.


As well as the village school, Paper Mill House is in the catchment area of the outstanding Ofsted-rated South Hunsley Senior School and is also within driving distance of three excellent private schools.
