Two flats where you can resort to what you wish...
THIS pretty Victorian property offers buyers a multitude of options. It comprises two flats so is perfect for multigenerational living but it could also be converted back into a fivebedroom house.
Estate agent Helen Shaw also suggests that the buyer could live in one apartment and let the other, creating an income.
Owner Jane Revell bought the house eight years ago so she could live in the first and second-floor maisonette, while her elderly mother lived in the ground-floor flat. She has had the house re-roofed, insulated and there are new kitchens and bathrooms.
“I loved the location on the South Cliff as it’s a two-minute walk from The Esplanade,”
Both flats have independent central heating boilers and services.
The shared outside space has been hard-landscaped, for ease of maintenance. The paved rear courtyard faces south and has a small vegetable patch and a cherry tree. Two timber storage lockers and a timber gate in the wall opens onto a back lane.
Avenue Victoria runs between Filey Road and The Esplanade, from where there are views of the South Bay, the harbour and Scarborough Castle. Jane, who now shares the property with her sister, is moving to downsize.
Helen Shaw adds: “The owners of number 36 have lavished care and attention on their property in recent years. It lends itself to twogeneration living or an owner could occupy one of the flats and let out the other, either on a long let or a holiday let, or could let out both flats on either basis. The permutations are endless.”
The flats could be kept separate for multi-generational living or joined back together to create a large, family-sized house.
