This impressive period house stands proudly on Prospect Hill, within the West side of Whitby and just a short distance from the centre of the town. There are 4 bedrooms, generous proportions and many windows, which allow natural light to flow throughout the accommodation, giving it a wonderful light and airy feel. A large, sweeping driveway leads to the pretty rear garden and offers a staggering amount of off-street parking. With a further garden to the front of the building - this is a property which is as appealing internally as it is externally.
The ground floor boasts an entrance porch, beautiful entrance hallway, a dining room located to the front of the building with a lovely, large window, a spacious lounge having double doors which open out into the rear garden and a kitchen with fitted base cupboards and wall units, an integrated ‘Neff’ eye-level oven, microwave and hob. There are 2 very useful outhouses attached to the kitchen – one being a storage cupboard and the other a utility room with space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine, a wc and a ‘Worcester’ combination gas central heating boiler.
The first floor is made up of 4 good-sized bedrooms with the main bedroom, which is located to the front of the building, having the benefit of built-in wardrobes. Also, a bathroom with a white suite comprising a WC, a hand basin within a vanity unit and a bath with wood panels.
The loft can be accessed via a hatch and pull-down ladder to the first floor landing. This space would be perfect for conversion having electricity connected, storage cupboards, and windows, already in place. Expanding upwards could be an exciting opportunity for those looking to extend the, already generous, space that this house has to offer.
With a recently fitted boiler and uPVC double glazing in place- the big jobs are done. This superb house is a real ‘blank canvas’ ready for a new buyer to put their own stamp onto it.
An enclosed garden, over staggered levels lays to the front of the house having a pathway which leads up to the front door. A passageway stretches up the side of the house to the beautiful rear garden which is mainly paved with flowerbeds and borders, a bin-store area and Summerhouse. A path connects the garden to the drive.
The huge driveway could accommodate several vehicles. Having this amount of off-street parking in a location such as this is unheard of – making it a huge bonus and valuable commodity indeed. There is a large wooden shed to the end of the driveway. Shortening the driveway, to extend the size of the garden, could be a possibility if new owners wished to do so.
This period property has a rich history being the former residence of renowned Whitby photographer John Tindale. He was a chemist and photographer who later went on the serve in the second world war. The images he captured, whilst working as a freelance photographer for the Whitby Gazette from the 1950s onwards, inspired the local museum to set up an exhibition of his work.
The location is truly superb being close to beautiful, green and leafy Pannett Park and a short walk from the heart of Whitby. There is easy access out of the town from here and the West Cliff, with its many amenities and golden sandy beach, is nearby.
With so much to offer, and so many boxes ‘ticked’, this incredible house demands closer inspection.
