A landmark Pickering building on the market for the first time in nearly 40 years.

The sale of The Aquarian offers the opportunity to acquire a substantial mixed use commercial and residential property, set within a generous plot with ample off-street parking and located within a stone’s throw of the Market Place. Offering the potential to create two separate income streams, the sale will appeal to investor and owner occupiers alike.

The building is believed to have been designed by the renowned Railway architect, G T Andrew’s, who also designed both York and Pickering station and is well worthy of its grade 2 listed status with three distinctive semi-circular windows dominating the front facade. The building was converted around 40 years ago and was completely remodelled from the bottom to top, creating a hugely versatile retail space to the ground floor and a large two floor apartment above.

In all the building provides over 2,300 square feet of accommodation, arranged over three floors. To the ground floor is 1,028 square feet of commercial space, until recently a highly regarded hair salon, the building is classified as E and could be used for any of the following:

  • For the display or retail sale of goods, other than hot food, principally to visiting members of the public,
  • For the sale of food and drink where consumption of that food and drink is mostly undertaken on the premises.
  • For the provision of the following kinds of services: (i) financial services, (ii) professional services (other than health or medical services), or (iii) any other services which it is appropriate to provide in a commercial, business or service locality,
  • For indoor sport, recreation or fitness, not involving motorised vehicles or firearms, principally to visiting members of the public,
  • For the provision of medical or health services, principally to visiting members of the public, except the use of premises attached to the residence of the consultant or practitioner.
  • For a crèche, day nursery or day centre, not including a residential use, principally to visiting members of the public.

Over the top two floors is a substantial two storey apartment, providing spacious character accommodation of 1,300 square feet which provides the following: entrance hall, breakfast kitchen, large living room, tow ground floor bedrooms; one with mezzanine floor over and the bathroom. To the top floor is the master bedroom with en-suite.

Set to the bottom of the Market Place, within a well established retail area, the building stands in a slightly elevated position with an attractive stone paved terrace. To the back is a large parking area, with access from Train Lane.
