Set in the centre of the thriving seaside town of Whitby, this historic Grade II listed former sea captain's house has been lovingly transformed into a charming boutique apartment with stunning views.
Nestling down one of Whitby's famous yards, this historic Grade II listed Sea Captain's house has been transformed into a boutique two-bedroom luxury apartment. With a stunning view of Whitby Abbey and a central location, this is one of the most unique and stylish holiday homes on the Yorkshire coast. Just perfect for couples escaping to the seaside for the weekend, or small families looking for a relaxing coastal holiday where you can leave the car behind.
Set over three floors, the elegant interiors are the work of acclaimed Yorkshire-based interior designer Rachel Mclane. Expect soft classic colours, a country-chic style and great use of space throughout. The apartment has been designed to maximise that amazing view of St Hilda's Abbey across the Whitby rooftops, so the main living area is on the second floor. This charming open-plan space features a comfortable lounge area with two Georgian windows looking out across Whitby. When you can draw your eyes away from the view, there's a TV to keep you entertained. The lounge leads on to the cosy cottage-style kitchen. It's compact but functional with an oven, hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher available. There is also a Nespresso coffee maker in here.
The master bedroom of this luxury apartment in Whitby is on the floor below; a beautiful double room with a real country hotel ambience. Soft tartan on the carpets and on the bed throws, combined with classical elegant furniture give the room a peaceful and contemporary vibe. It's the perfect place to retreat to with a good book after a busy morning exploring Whitby's many shops and cafes. This bedroom sits right next door to the family bathroom which boasts a large walk-in shower with a monsoon shower head and his and her sinks.
The second bedroom is a cosy twin room. Set in the eaves of the building on the top floor, it has bags of character with its sumptuous and quirky furnishings. There's also a small en-suite WC up here too.
The apartment is set within Whitby's conservation precinct. There isn't any outside space, however, the beach is under a 5-minute walk, as are Whitby's famous cobbled streets packed with bars, cafes and restaurants. If you love having everything on your doorstep, this stylish apartment is just the spot.
