The coastal town of Whitby boasts some of the best views in Yorkshire. Whether you’ve made the climb to the top of the famous 199 steps or you’re simply taking in the view along the coast, it’s a captivating place. This old fishing town will always have a place in our hearts and with good reason. It’s cobbled streets and aroma of fish & chips is enough to draw tourists from around the world, and God’s Own Country itself.
This beautiful house, currently on the market for buyers, has some of the best views this seaside town has to offer. Built by a returning mariner, the 20th century town house is situated at the top of the iconic 199 steps – and it has amazing panoramic views that allow you to take in the crystal waters and red rooftops of Whitby. The view itself is priceless and captivating, on both a bright sunny day, as well as during those crashing thunderstorms that make the winds howl and the rough sea flail.
The glorious town house boasts three floors, with five bedrooms and two reception rooms. It was built to allow occupants of all rooms a view out to the sea, harbour and town. Known as Fashoda, the property is on the market at the moment for a guide price of £465,000 – you know, if you’ve got a bit of extra change in your pocket.
The terraced garden has places to entertain north, south and west. The west side is a more private place away from the steps, with amazing access to the sun in the afternoons.
Said to be named after an incident that happened in East Africa on the White Nile in 1898, it has been on the property market since February and we are sure it will be snapped up real soon. I mean, come on, look at those views!
