Caedmon's Prospect, a short stroll from the centre of Whitby on Chubb Hill, comprises 48 exceptional one and two bedroom apartments each carefully designed to deliver an uncompromising fusion of style and practicability.
Overlooking tranquil Pannett Park and within minutes of the bustling coastal town of Whitby, Caedmon’s Prospect stands proudly in a commanding position and represents a fine addition to this charming and deeply historical community.
Whitby harbour lies at the mouth of the River Esk and is the only natural harbour on the coast between the Humber and the Tees. This haven, surrounded by the North Yorkshire Moors, attracted the Saxons to found an abbey here and the development of a town followed at the base of the cliffs that enclose the harbour. The ruins of Whitby Abbey are, today, a highly visible landmark for travellers over land and seafarers alike.
The development and history of Whitby has over the centuries been connected to the sea; shipbuilding, fishing, whaling and trade. It was home to Captain James Cook who, sailing in ships built in Whitby, discovered much of the new world.
But Whitby's treasures are not only linked to the sea. The silky black Whitby Jet, a black amber, is famous for jewelery settings. Another claim to fame is Bram Stoker's "Dracula" story which is set in Whitby. The renowned early photographer, Frank Sutcliffe is yet another famous Whitby son and his images of the area from the time he established his studio here in 1875 until his death in 1941, can be seen in The Sutcliffe Gallery.
Today, the port is still active with fishing and the coal and alum that it shipped in its hey-day has been replaced by cargoes of paper. However, the traditional industries have been overtaken by tourism. Whitby's reputation has spread and draws visitors and residents alike to its charming harbour and twisting streets. The blue-flag sandy beach and probably the best fish and chips and kippers to be found anywhere, add it to its fine reputation as a lively and happy place to live.
Design excellence is at the heart of each and every home, so that life can be enjoyed in the knowledge that space is optimised and every aspect of a modern way of life has been considered.

Kebbell Homes is the trading name of Kebbell Development Limited, a family business founded in 1953 by the late Chairman, Thomas Kebbell, and whose principal interest is property development for the residential housing market. Family values and traditions have, over the years, been built into the company culture and are, today, maintained and reinforced by Managing Director, Nicolas Kebbell.
Although based in Watford, Hertfordshire, on the north-west edge of London, the company's UK projects have been built from Durham in the North to Southampton in the South.
The company is also active internationally. Kebbell developed in France for over twenty years with completed projects of flats and houses around Paris and further schemes of flats in Lille and near Caen. In the United States, Kebbell has several current developments in the Houston area.
The company has a substantial portfolio of diverse commercial developments but residential house building is its prime area of interest.
However, it is not only where you live that is important in the Kebbell philosophy. The quality and comfort of the home you live in is of paramount concern. It is most important to Kebbell Homes that the houses they build are as attractive on the outside as they are practical and comfortable on the inside. Plans and specifications are constantly being revised and updated to maintain these goals.
Kebbell Homes' enviable reputation rests on building desirable family homes which are comfortable to live in, built to the highest standards and situated in convenient locations. Design and implementation of development is managed by a highly experienced team taking particular interest in each new home and its purchaser.
It is not surprising, therefore, that nearly half of Kebbell purchasers have owned at least one Kebbell home before.
A Northern Area Office, in Stokesley, North Yorkshire, is conveniently located for the administration of the current projects in the North of England.
