Hendersons introduce Woodside Villa, a Victorian, 7 bed residence that was built for the Master Mariner, Captain William Jefferson in the late 1800’s. Designed by the architect Edward Smales, the villa has typical build features of its era such the gorgeous Victorian red brick which perfectly contrasts the elaborate wooden gable at the top window below the steep, pitched roof. Huge bay windows at the front of the house flood the property with a lot of natural light. Internally, the owners since William Jefferson have also retained much of its internal Victorian features from the ornate staircase to the servant bells and intricate wooden trim. 

When briefly described, the layout is over four floors, the ground floor comprises a large hallway that leads into the dining room, lounge, kitchen and parlour which is currently utilised as a ground floor bedroom with ensuite w.c.

Up the stairs to the first floor are four bedrooms, two bathrooms (one of which has Jack and Jill access) and a cloakroom with w.c and hand basin. There are two further bedrooms, a bathroom and a lounge with a kitchen just off on the second floor. If you are looking to run the property as a hotel or guest house, the third floor would certainly be perfect owner accommodation with views of the Whitby Abbey. There is also a basement level for additional storage. 

Outside, a lawned gardens wraps round the front and side of the property and is enclosed by a stone wall, to the rear there is a driveway providing parking for two vehicles together with a garage that has electric supply as well as the original inspection pit under the floor and a W.C. with hand basin.
