Full description

Tenure: Freehold

5 The Crescent represents the rare opportunity to acquire a complete townhouse within the beautiful Grade II listed Crescent, located in the heart of Scarborough town centre. Designed and built during the 1830ís by R H & Samuel Sharpe of York, The Crescent is a magnificent example of Georgian architecture at its best, and features symmetrical ashlar facades, stone architraves and cast iron honeysuckle railings to the First Floor balcony. Internally the property has encaustic tiled floors, beautifully proportioned rooms with the high ceilings redolent of the period, and a number of period fireplaces still remaining. The property occupies a superb east facing position looking across the Crescent gardens and to the sea, and coastline.

We understand Number 5 to be the last remaining complete townhouse on The Crescent and the property has been in the same familiesí ownership for over 80 years. Until recently a portion of the building had been used as a dentistís surgery and as such could easily be utilised for other commercial enterprises. Alternatively the entire building could be reinstated to create a spectacular family residence, or potentially ne subdivided into multiple units Ė subject to acquiring the necessary planning consents.

The accommodation briefly comprises; entrance porch with handsome original encaustic tiled floor, entrance hall with moulded arches and Doric column with the main staircase leading up, large reception room to the front, further reception room, rear corridor leading to cloakroom, utility, workshop and large dining kitchen with an AGA.

On the First Floor; facing straight towards the sea is a beautifully proportioned sitting room, with three full length windows leading out onto the balcony, bedroom with en-suite, rear corridor leading to four further rooms. On the Second floor is a bathroom, storeroom and separate cloakroom, and three further bedrooms. On the Third floor are four attic bedrooms. Outside there is a small, yet established garden to the front with two fine bay trees, box hedging and wrought iron fence work. To the rear is an enclosed yard.
