Two flats where you can re­sort to what you wish...

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY - Sharon Dale Flats 1 and 2, 36 Av­enue Vic­to­ria, Scarborough; price range: £295,000 to £345,000 for both flats; con­tact: Peter Illing­worth, tel: 01653 505010, www.pe­ter­illing­worth.co.uk

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.
