Tenure: Freehold

Used as a successful holiday let, this most attractive yard cottage with beamed ceiling, wood paneling, exposed brick and stone work etc., shows you what a great example of these archetypal Whitby cottages should look like! Perfectly placed, just off Baxtergate, ideal for access to the shops, pubs and restaurants, this cottage should hold a wide appeal.

Approached from Loggerheads Yard, a cleverly divided timber front door opens into…

Living Room with Dining Area: 12'9 x 9'8 plus 3'8 x 3'8 Once inside the front door, 2 steps lead into the sitting room which has a secondary glazed sash window to the front aspect and an additional Velux over the kitchenette area at the rear, making this lighter than many other cottages of this ilk. The living area has panelled walls to one side with an attractive brick chimney breast to the other with a wooden lintel, beneath which is set a living flame gas fire with a marble surround and stone hearth. The cupboard to the right of the chimney houses the wall mounted gas combi boiler which provides the central heating and hot water, with the electricity meter and consumer unit in the cupboard above. To the left of the fireplace is the staircase which rises to the first floor and has a substantial cupboard beneath, with plumbing for a washing machine. The living room has a radiator and a Sky television point, as well as a beamed ceiling.

The kitchenette area lies to the rear of the living room and has a run of worktop with cleverly designed, sliding door cupboards beneath, a gas cooker point, part tiled walls and an inset stainless steel sink unit.
