Located close to the heart of Kirkbymoorside lies Vivers Lodge, a distinguished 18th century Georgian town house only a minute or two's walk from the main Market Place, with an established walled garden. The house dates back to the the mid 1700's and is Listed Grade II. The property still displays many features of this period including panel doors, moulded cornicing, window shutters and an elegant, low rise central staircase leading to the second and third floor rooms. As you'd expect the rooms are of generous proportions with high ceilings and will easily accommodate large pieces of furniture, artwork etc. In the main there is gas central heating and the Aga in the kitchen is dual fuel (gas & electric).

When in the garden, you would hardly believe this is a town centre location. Being walled on three sides this typical 'English country garden' affords good privacy and is nice and level making it relatively easy to maintain. There is a large expanse of lawn, interspersed with wild flower patches, peonies, foxgloves and an age old Wisteria taking centre stage. There is an ornamental pond and several established fruit trees including apple, cherry and fig. The garden captures the sunshine for most of the day and is a haven for wild birds. A gated drive off Old Road provides private off street parking and there are two timber framed sheds for storing gardening equipment etc.
