Looking for a lifestyle change and a new adventure?
This beautiful old school, both business & dream home in one purchase, is now on the market!
In the village of Grosmont, within the North York Moors National Park, the award-winning conversion combines stunning design and generous space with comfort, luxury and energy efficiency.
The impressive open plan use of the original building also includes a mezzanine master bedroom, 2 further bedrooms and 2 luxury bathrooms.
The very special home is moments away from the thriving coffee shop business, established by the current owners - it attracts walkers on the Coast to Coast route, visitors to the adjacent heritage steam railway and happy holiday-makers, as well as loyal local customers (from Whitby & surrounding areas).
The independent successful small business capitalises on its former life as a school. Maps, alphabet pictures and quaint desks decorate the interior, with quizzes, toys & books available for customers with children.
The exterior 'playground' offers hopscotch & hula hoops for families, as well as a peaceful substantial seating area with well-established pergola plants, including vine, rose, honeysuckle & crab apple, perfect for customers seeking shade in the sunshine. Outdoors there is, of course, the added attraction of views of steam trains!
The Coffee Shop has hosted wedding reception, christening party, family get-together and hen party events - there is great potential for expanding these functions, especially with St Matthew's Church nearby and the proximity of North Yorkshire Moors Railway. The coffee shop is fully licenced for the sale of alcohol.
There is also room for expansion of opening hours (currently seasonal, March to October daytimes),
including evening restaurant service. The present business caters for 26+ covers inside, with 50 covers outside - these could be increased, considering the large premises area available.
The whole 'package' has to be seen to be believed!
