Shilling cottage, Borough Place, Whitby, £210,000

Shilling cottage is a charming grade II listed building that comes with a private garden and is located in one of Whitby’s historic yards in the heart of the old town.

Dating from the 18th century the cottage has a wealth of period features starting with its handsome stone frontage and including sash windows and beamed ceilings alongside modern luxuries like central heating.

The accommodation is over three floors and comprises an open plan lounge/diner/kitchen on the ground floor, a twin bedroom and bathroom on the first floor and a double and single bedroom on the top floor.

The main reception room although small has been well thought out to maximise the space available, with a fitted kitchen, built-in dining table with seating and space for a three piece suite.

The real bonus is from this room there is a stable door that leads through to the enclosed garden which in the summer acts another room and is ideal for alfresco eating and entertaining.

Upstairs the twin bedroom is a good size and has built-in storage and a sash window to the front.

The modern bathroom has a three piece suite comprising a bath, wash hand basin and a wc.

On the top floor the second double bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a side-sliding Yorkshire sash window to the front.

The third bedroom with a view over the rooftops completes the accommodation on offer.

This period cottage is currently a holiday let and would be suited to both a holiday retreat and an attractive but-to-let investment.
