Full description

Tenure: Freehold

St. Hilda's Terrace lies above Pannett Park, running down to join Flowergate, one of Whitby's main streets. No. 11 is a superb Georgian townhouse set in a very desirable location within the town with its south facing façade offering some marvellous views over the town and the upper harbour, as well as Pannett Park. This Grade II * listed property offers spacious, yet practical, accommodation and has been used by the current owners initially as a permanent home and more recently as a very successful holiday let. The double garage and parking on Back St. Hilda's provide an essential element which can be lacking in other properties on this prestigious terrace.

The main door to the property is accessed through the front garden, off St. Hilda's Terrace, however it is relatively infrequently used as the majority of these houses are accessed from Back St. Hilda's, where the parking and garage are.

The secure gateway with a telephone door entry system gives access to the rear yard where a traditional panelled entrance door set below a window light opens into...

Rear Entrance Lobby: The transparent roofed rear entrance lobby has a doorway through to the dining kitchen with a second doorway through to the inner hallway. There are part panelled walls and a wall light, as well as the entry phone intercom system for the yard gate.

Dining Kitchen: 14'9 x 13'5 This beautifully proportioned kitchen has panelled walls and 2 sash windows facing into the enclosed rear yard with wonderful vertical sliding shutters. The flooring is block wood parquet, which is currently being protected under the cushioned vinyl flooring. The kitchen fittings include a range of bespoke handmade units including base units and drawers set under polished granite worktops. There is an integrated Bosch dishwasher and an inset 1½ bowl stainless steel sink unit with a mixer tap and a waste disposal unit. The focal point of the room is a wide inglenook with a modern wooden mantel and tiled splashback in which is set the cream coloured Belling range style cooker. The kitchen has a built-in book shelf and an archway leads through to the lobby with doors to a shelved recessed storage cupboard and...

Inner Hallway

Shower Room: The shower room has a frosted glass window to the rear lobby, a tiled floor and tiled walls, with down lighters set into the ceiling. There is chrome, ladder style radiator, an extractor fan along with a pedestal wash hand basin with a mirror over and a tiled shower cubicle with a thermostatic shower. On the back wall of the shower room is the plumbing for a Saniflow WC, but this was removed whilst the property was used as a holiday let to avoid potential problems with holiday makers. We understand that it has been sealed, but would be simple enough to re-open and install a new WC, if so desired.

Entrance Hallway: The beautiful period hallway houses a handsome wide, panelled staircase of gentle pitch with a curling, polished handrail, which rises to the half landing at the rear. The hallway has some attractive period mouldings including a ceiling rose and cornice, as well as a moulded archway.
