Step inside this majestic apartment - within one of Scarborough's finest buildings
It is the first of eight apartments within The Belvedere, built in the late 1800s as a 10-bedroom house for Lord George Beeforth.
Set over three floors, it is impressively spacious, with private grounds that include a tunnel to a wild garden overlooking the sea.
Constructed over five years, The Belvedere was the first domestic home within Scarborough to have electric lighting.
In 1980, a local developer bought it and converted it into apartments, taking care to keep period features, that include a stunning, stained glass leaded window within the feature communal hallway. A striking fireplace and oak staircase are further features.
Apartment One is set over 4,000 square feet and occupies the whole south-facing section of the ground floor, together with its upper levels.
An open plan living and dining kitchen has a central island with granite worktops, and double doors through to a reception room with period fireplace. A further opening leads to a snug.
There's more to impress in the form of a 25-foot orangery with dining room, with double doors out to the scenic gardens.
A sizeable double bedroom has an en-suite facility.
From the hallway with cloakroom off, is a spiral staircase up to a first floor study or additional bedroom. Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor.
The latter has a wine cellar, a utility room, and two double bedrooms. One bedroom has an en-suite shower room and in addition, there is a separate bathroom.
Apartment one, The Belvedere, Esplanade, Scarborough YO11 2UX has an asking price of £650,000 and is for sale with CPH Property Services.
