Full description

With a limited number of character cottages currently on the market in Whitby this gorgeous 2 bedroom property, which is laid out over 4 floors and enjoys the most stunning harbour views, is sure to attract interest. This Georgian, stone cottage oozes history and charm and the current owners informed us this Grade II Listed Master Mariners house was commissioned by, the explorer, William Scoresby and occupied by his chief mate.

The ground floor of the property briefly comprises a modern kitchen/diner having an integrated oven/hob with an extractor fan over and a contemporary shower-room off which was only added 3 years ago.

The first floor boasts a spacious lounge with a useful storage cupboard. A door from the first floor landing opens out to the rear of the building from where access can be gained up to The Ropery.

The second floor continues to impress with a large double bedroom and a contemporary bathroom.

To the third floor you will find a further attic room/double bedroom of generous proportions.

Externally there is a front yard, over which there is a right of way for the occupiers of the neighbouring property to access their cottage, and a useful store cupboard.

The current owners have beautifully maintained and improved the cottage adding a new boiler just approximately 5/6 years ago and new front windows only 4 years ago. They have also replaced the ceilings and floors and added steel beams to strengthen them.

The outstanding views have to be seen to be fully appreciated. The property is accessed via a set of stone steps and from this elevated position, stretches over the sparkling marina to the West side of town beyond. From this idyllic location the very centre of Whitby is a short stroll, along the harbour-side, away. Also, the cobbled section of Historic Church Street, with its wealth of shops, cafes and Inns, is nearby.

Although currently run as a holiday let, the property would also lend itself to a variety of uses including a desirable second home or long-term rental investment.

The contents, including white goods, are available to purchase by separate negotiation.

With so much to offer in terms of space, location, character and views - early closer inspection is highly recommended in order to avoid disappointment.
