Additional Information

High Seas sits nestled in the hillside with sweeping panoramic views across trees, fields and National Trust Yorkshire Coast land out to sea. In the last three years it has gone through extensive changes to create a modern building that sits comfortably within the history and the land around it. The property benefits from under floor heating throughout, marine-grade aluminium double glazing and a mix of oak flooring, tiles and carpet. The modern, open plan kitchen diner, with electric 2 oven AGA and integrated appliances, has triple aspect, large feature windows as well as a wide sliding door onto a spacious patio taking full advantage of the stunning coastline views. The living room, also with breathtaking views, has a wood burning stove with reclaimed brick feature surround, windows to front and rear elevations and a door to the boot room and utility area.

The boot room has built in seating and storage and an exterior door to the front of the house. The utility room has built in worktops with storage below, a Belfast sink and plumbing for a washing machine as well as a window to the front aspect. The light and airy hall, which features several characterful elements of the old building, has a cloakroom comprised of WC and wash basin with storage, and stairs leading to the first floor with an exterior door to the property opening onto the half-landing. The ground floor double bedroom has a combined tilt and turn window/door opening onto a small, sheltered patio area. The ground floor bathroom has a beautiful double ended roll top bath next to a large feature window enjoying views out to sea, a generous walk-in shower plus a WC and wash basin with storage.

Upstairs, the landing has natural light from a skylight to the rear elevation. The principal suite has twin Velux roof terrace windows to the front giving entry onto a large balcony with magnificent views of the bay. The dressing room is at the far end of the bedroom and has fitted wardrobes. Also on the first floor there is a second double bedroom with a feature window to the side elevation as well as a twin roof terrace window to the front giving entry onto the balcony. The house bathroom has fitted base units with basin, WC, bath with shower over.


Outside, the driveway arrives at an elevated position to the rear of the house where there is parking for several cars with a large turning circle. The grounds host a variety of areas, including a sheltered south-facing walled patio garden to the rear of the property, a lower secluded woodland garden to the front, the dining patio and further garden on the incline up to the garden cabin. There are informal pathways leading round the property through long grasses, shrubs and trees. The property sits on approximately 3 acres of land, a haven for wildlife including many different bird species, badgers and deer.


There is a versatile garden cabin, with lighting and power, sitting in an elevated position behind the main house, that has double doors and windows to the front aspect affording a view of the whole property and beyond out to sea. A detached stone outbuilding with clay tiled roof at the side elevation has lighting, power, and the borehole water treatment plant. Currently used for storage, it has the potential to be converted to create additional living space, subject to planning.
