Global real estate advisor, Colliers International, has negotiated the sale of Station House in Brompton by Sawdon, on behalf of Clive and Sallie Standring at an asking price of Â£575,000.
Station House is made up of five self-catered apartments, as well as owners’ accommodation.
Located close to the North York Moors, the property was originally a station stop on the old Pickering to Scarborough line.
In keeping with the origins, the station platform has been retained and a garden laid out where the train line once ran.
Peter Bean, Director, Hotels Agency division, Colliers International, said: “Station House is the perfect opportunity for a semi-retired couple to own and operate a quirky guesthouse.
"As a former station, the new owners have acquired a striking piece of real estate in a historically rich area.”
The village of Brompton is said to be ‘the birth place of aviation’, owing to the long-term residence of Sir George Cayley.
It is also where William Wordsworth married Mary Hutchinson in 1802.
The new owners of Station House are John and Angelina Wallis, from Bedfordshire.
