Hendersons are delighted to present to the market this three storey building located in the heart of the East side of Whitby. Currently set up as a shop to the ground floor level and a two bedroom maisonette above. This versatile property offers a variety of opportunities – for example, amongst many other options a purchaser could also buy and continue with the current business, transform the building into one large cottage or set up their own business on the ground floor and rent out above as a lucrative holiday let. The ground floor comprises a large shop area which currently has a compact changing room and a useful storage cupboard as well as a kitchen/office area. A side door also allows access to the alleyway. To the first floor you will find a landing with a spacious ‘L’ shaped living area which is made up of a lounge area having built in shelves and a large window to the landing. The newly fitted kitchen includes an integrated oven, a fridge and an exposed brick fireplace. Also to this level there is a bathroom with wooden floorboards, useful storage cupboards and a modern white suite as well as a separate WC. The second floor boasts two bedrooms. As it is currently set up the bedrooms are open plan (you have to walk through one bedroom to get to another) but adding a stud wall would easily separate them. The current business is ‘The Victorian Image’ a studio that sets up and takes Victorian style portraits. This popular business has been around for a long time having been established in 1980, and has had several celebrities through it’s doors. A potential purchaser of the property could also buy and continue the business if they wish to- but are under no obligation to do so. The location is truly superb being on the bustling 'Sandgate' off one of the most popular steets in the town - Church Street. Surrounded by restaurants, gift shops and cafes you cannot get more central than this. Also the beach is just a very short stroll away. With huge demand for shops, and few available, we are expecting this rare opportunity to attract attention. Viewing is a must.

With its cobbled lanes, Church Street oozes historic charm. An ideal area of the town to eat, drink and socialise, from where you will find a wealth of superb restaurants, cafes, bars and Inns. Those looking for retail therapy will find many Jet & jewellery outlets, books shops and gift shops. Art lovers will be happy to stumble across wonderful Art Galleries and Photography studios to suit every taste. The famous '199 steps' rises up from Church Street to the Abbey and Tate Hill beach lays on the end of the street. Church Street also stretches along the harbourside and, therefore, has some of the most stunning views the town has to offer. The 'old side' of town is adored by many and a short stroll takes you over to the more modern West side of Whitby. The hauntingly beautiful atmosphere Church Street is hard to find anywhere else. A lovely part of Whitby to live in or visit.
