Property Summary

This immaculately-presented semi-detached bungalow enjoys a tranquil, end-of-cul-de-sac position on the outskirts of Whitby, one of the north east’s most beautiful seaside resorts.

It would make an ideal retirement home for a couple, or possibly a good buy-to-let investment in a popular holiday location. It offers ready-to-move-into accommodation and is close to local amenities with plenty of opportunity for exploring and recreation in the countryside.

Location
Whitby is renowned for its beautiful beaches, which have been awarded both a Blue Flag and the UK Seaside Award in 2018. Whitby Abbey is a popular visitor attraction, thanks to its role in the original Dracula novel by Bram Stoker.

The property is just over a mile from the town centre, with its harbour and shopping centre, while there is a Sainsbury’s supermarket and associated fuel station within a few hundred metres of the front door. Both Whitby and Ruswarp rail stations are easily accessible, each less than a mile away.

There are also countless opportunities to explore and enjoy the countryside, with the River Esk and North York Moors National Park close by, while the A171 links the town to the A19 and other major trunk roads.

Exterior
The property has a paved driveway providing off-road parking, while the low-maintenance front garden is gravelled with several flower-beds filled with established shrubs, plants and trees. There is a path leading to the rear garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn with some beds. A high wooden fence and mature hedges give privacy from neighbouring properties.

Interior
The entrance door leads into an enclosed porch, which in turn opens into the kitchen. This has a tiled floor and walls in neutral shades, ceiling-mounted spotlights, and an extensive range of fitted units with rolled laminate worktops featuring a marbled pattern. There is a built-in oven and hob with extractor hood, a sink and drainer with mixer-tap, and space for appliances.

The kitchen then opens into the lounge, which has a feature wall with a leafy design and an imitation ‘living flame’ fitted gas fire. A large bay window to the front makes the most of the natural light, and there are chandelier-style light fittings. A second door from the lounge opens into a hallway, where there is a fitted cupboard and access to the remaining accommodation.

Both bedrooms are decorated in neutral shades, with the main room also having a feature wall with floral pattern. The shower room is a wet room, with fully-tiled walls and a sealed floor. There is a power-shower, wall-mounted towel rail, mirrored wall cabinet, pedestal hand basin and toilet.

The house is currently rated a higher-than-average C on the Energy Performance Certificate register, with potential to become a B. It has cavity wall and loft insulation, and is fully double-glazed. The gas-fired central heating system has a programmer, room thermostat and individual thermostatic valves to all radiators, and there is low-energy lighting to 80% of fixed outlets.
