Full description


The Crescent is situated at the heart of Scarborough's Conservation Area and is a surprisingly peaceful enclave given its central location. Scarborough's attractions are many and include: two spectacular sandy beaches, extensive twelfth century castle ruins, fishing harbour & lighthouse. The town is well served with amenities and lies on the eastern boundary of the North York Moors National Park. Culturally, Scarborough is the home of the Stephen Joseph Theatre, where Sir Alan Ayckbourn was for many years the resident director. County cricket is played in the town in summer.


The sale of 8 The Crescent represents a rare opportunity to acquire a four storey Georgian townhouse within the beautiful Grade II Listed Crescent, located only a short stroll from the town centre. Designed and built during the 1830's by R H & Samuel Sharpe of York, The Crescent is a magnificent example of Georgian architecture at its best, featuring symmetrical ashlar facades, stone architraves and cast iron honeysuckle railings to the first floor balcony. The property has laterly been used as a residential care home but does still retain a number of original internal features; it occupies a superb south facing position looking across the Crescent gardens and to the sea and coastline beyond.

The current owners enlisted the services of a local firm of Architects who have been successful in obtaining full planning consent to convert the property into eight spacious apartments and as such the property presents an an appealing development opportunity for a discerning investor.

Alternatively, subject to securing the necessary consents it should be possible to return the property back to one spectacular residence.

Externally there is paved front garden, enclosed by iron railings, whilst to the rear there is a small yard with rear access.
