Wave goodbye to the daily grind and set sail for a new life
THOSE who holiday around Whitby often dream of giving up their nine-to-five job to live and work by Yorkshire’s most beautiful stretch of coast.
Here are two properties that offer the potential to make that dream a reality. High Street, Staithes Price: £295,000 Contact: Astin and Co, Whitby. Tel: 01947 821122, www.astin.co.uk
Occupying a prominent position in the centre of the popular village of Staithes, this large property is very versatile.
Formerly The Endeavour, a successful restaurant, it could be an eaterie or a small B&B.
It has five bedrooms, four with en-suite facilities, living room, separate dining room with commercial kitchen to the rear along with a bar in the entrance lobby.
The property is beautifully presented and is ready for occupation.
There are stunning views over the harbour and out to sea from the upper floor. Crescent Place, Whitby Price: £440,000 Contact: Astin and Co, Whitby. Tel: 01947 821122, www.astin.co.uk These four holiday apartments are close to Whitby’s West Cliff and boast views over the harbour and to the sea from most of the windows. There are two, twobedroom flats and two one-bedroom flats, all of which have been fastidiously maintained.
They are fully equipped to continue trading, with many future bookings already in place for the 2010 season and a very good repeat booking record.
The ground floor flat is particularly suitable as owner’s accommodation.
READY TO GO: The former restaurant in High Street, Staithes, and holiday apartments in Whitby.
