Rock Lea stands on the High Street in the old part of the former fishing village of Staithes, overlooking the cobbled street and well placed for access down to the harbour.

Comprehensively refurbished around six years ago, Rock Lea has been upgraded to a very high modern standard whilst trying to preserve the character of the Grade II listed building.

Work has included restoration of the building along with re-plumbing, re-wiring and installation of new fixtures and fittings, high performance secondary glazing plus redecoration throughout. There is no gas in the old village and part of the refurbishment included the installation of an electric hot water central heating system with radiators, powered by low cost, off peak electricity.

Rock Lea has a fabulously flexible layout with the accommodation laid out over four floors, which could be used to provide either three or four bedrooms, depending upon your choice of arrangement, with one or two reception rooms and two luxurious well-appointed modern bathrooms.

The ground floor is used to provide the kitchen diner at the moment with the cast iron stove set into the chimney breast, making it a great spot to linger.

At the moment the three bedroom layout provides a large sitting room on the first floor along the whole width of the front, with a second multi fuel stove.

At the bottom of the house is the cellar, which provides really useful storage and houses the cylinders for the central heating system, which keep them all well out of the way.

You can not fail to be impressed by the quality of the finished presentation of this lovely period house and internal viewing is therefore strongly recommended.
