Full description

Situated just a couple of miles inland from the popular seaside town of Whitby, Sneaton Hall enjoys easy access to the North York Moors, the coastline and Whitby itself. Sneaton Hall was converted into an exclusive scheme of individual apartments in 2009 and this is perhaps the most impressive unit within the development, having a private terraced garden as well as access to the communal gardens, whilst also enjoying splendid long views over rolling countryside down towards the town and coast beyond. Currently established as a successful holiday let, this apartment could equally appeal to investors and permanent residents.

Benefitting from its own private access, convenient allocated parking (with additional communal parking), generous sized private enclosed terrace and well-appointed spacious accommodation with many original features, this property is also ideally positioned for access to both the moors and coast.

Lying to the rear of the building, this apartment enjoys a private area of garden, which is laid out as a large paved patio enclosed by wooden fence, with raised borders and views down towards Whitby.
