Tenure: Leasehold

The flexibility of the accommodation of this ground and first floor apartment really make it stand out as something intensely different. The bedsit is an ideal guest bedroom suite and the main flat could easily provide 2 huge formal bedrooms, although it is currently laid out as a 1 bed. Oblique views out of the bay windows to the front give some lovely views down to Sandsend Ness and out to sea. Having been upgraded by the current owners with new kitchen, central heating, secondary glazing etc, it is absolutely ideal for those of you who are looking to walk straight into a first or second home.
