SOME POTENTIAL OPTIONS
The 2 loft rooms have some areas of restricted head height, due to the sloping ceiling and purlin timbers. Access up the stairs to the top floor also has significantly restricted head height. The loft rooms have been in their current format for many years (20+). Whilst useful space, we anticipate most buyers would now look to maximise the potential by building a dormer window to the rear slope. This would significantly resolve the restricted height issue, and would also create a very pleasant view of Whitby Abbey. Removing the current stud partition wall would create a larger double bedroom, with potential space for an en-suite/shower room (subject to planning permission and any required regulations). Other potential layout changes which some buyers may find interesting to consider include: The bathroom is very large, so perhaps could be repositioned to create a bedroom. The lower ground floor kitchen could also be turned into a living room or en-suite bedroom, with the kitchen...
