CPH are delighted to be asked to market this UNIQUE COASTAL GUESTHOUSE which enjoys quite simply the most stunning views across both of Scarborough's North & South Bays. The property comes to the market for the first time in 14 years, having been successfully run by the current owners, who are only selling due to a well deserved retirement and relocation.
The property offers 9 / 10 en-suite guest rooms that centre around a grand dining hall, which features the most incredible hand carved mantle place that was designed by John Atkinson Grimshaw, who himself, is the most important artist to have lived and painted in Scarborough, and resided at this property between 1876 and 1879.
The property also offers many historic and interesting features, including the oak entrance door and dado rail, originally from the vestry at St. Anne's R.C. Cathedral in Leeds.
The property also benefits from very comfortable and spacious owner's accommodation, with the master suite measuring 24ft in length and incorporating a dressing room, ensuite and double doors that lead out to the owner's private south facing garden. This garden benefits from a workshop/office with underfloor heating together with various stores, whilst below at street level, there is a triple garage which can accommodate 4 to 6 cars, adding to the 4 external spaces located directly to the front of the property.
