The Property - 'Oakroyd' is a magnificent Victorian building, built in 1870 in the 'gothic' style, occupying a most convenient setting on highly regarded, tree-lined, Woodlane, perfectly positioned for the town centre, harbourside, seafront and beaches, all of which are within a few minutes' walk.

Two large double bedrooms include one to the front of the building with working shutters, and a magnificent 'main' bedroom to the rear, 5.49m(18'0") x 5.49m(18'0").

A useful inner lobby leads to the kitchen, off which there is a useful utility room, and a bathroom/WC contains a three-piece suite with further arched window providing views over the town to the sea.
The apartment benefits from gas fired central heating, together with partial replacement double glazing which, combined with the high ceilings, moulded cornices, beautiful tiled floors, high skirtings, panelled doors, open fireplaces and exposed timber floors, provide a future owner with a wonderful opportunity to undertake a programme of cosmetic refurbishment work to create an extremely stylish home in one of the town's most favoured locations.
