Enjoying a prime location just moments away from gorgeous Blue Flag beaches and within the stunning surroundings of the North York Moors National Park, Harold Villa is a fantastic dwelling for a group or family of ten seeking the very best of Yorkshire’s coast and country. This exceptional property boasts some beautiful original features, with grand high ceilings as well as being carefully furnished with a heritage feel throughout. In the hallway you will find the original deeds dating back to 1789 when Admiral Horncastle resided here.
At the front of the property, you have the large orangery, with bi fold doors, which is a welcome addition and is warmed by underfloor heating as are all the bathrooms. The ground floor consists of a large lounge with beautiful open fire. As well as the generous open plan kitchen with modern base and wall units, integral appliances and granite worktops. There is a large lantern sky-light flooding this whole space with natural light, a good size seating area for family dining leading through to an open-plan family room at the rear. Separating the dining area and family room is a double-sided wood burning stove, adding a warm glow to your evenings. Tall sash windows bathe the rooms in light, as well as a long bottle window spanning over multiple floors as you ascend the stairway.
The original wooden shutters have been restored, in keeping with the age and style of the property. The first floor consists of a four-poster king bedroom suite with en-suite facilities. The second bedroom is accessed through a sitting room with a sofa bed which can be used for an additional guest on request, the king bed frame has an uncanny resemblance to Whitby’s iconic Whale bone archway and is perfectly at home here. There is also a good size family shower room on this floor. On the second floor you have the third bedroom with a king sleigh bed, with an en suite shower. Plus, another king bedroom with an en suite wet room. The third floor has the fifth and final bedroom with sea views from the Velux window. This king bedroom has an en suite bathroom under the eaves. Each bedroom is unique with its own character and charm – which one will you choose on your stay? There is a large enclosed garden to the front and ample parking for 3/4 cars. This impressive townhouse is secured with large gates making it completely private in a central position. Your own slice of heaven in the most perfect coastal destination.
Whitby has a host of attractions drawing guests back year after year. This town was inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and there is a dark side of Whitby with ghost walks to both fright and delight. The wonderful Goth Festival takes place twice a year and keep an eye out for other festivals such as the Folk Festival, Whitby Regatta and the Steam Punk Weekend. With many award-winning restaurants, olde worlde pubs and tea rooms, a colourful harbour, iconic Abbey and a glorious long golden beach, this is a great place for all interests and ages. The unspoilt fishing village of Staithes, 10 miles away, nestles into the cliffs of the Heritage Coast and is just one of the nearby hidden beaches to explore. Other hidden gems include Runswick Bay, Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Robin Hood’s Bay, each has its own story of pirates and smuggling to tell.
