An outstanding multi-purpose Manor House with land offering a well-established and diverse range of income streams.
The property is located just a short distance from the popular British seaside retreat and fishing village of Staithes; prominently located off the A174 which serves the thousands of tourists and holiday makers descending on Staithes each year.
Briefly comprising a substantial family home, holiday cottages, retail space and Barn Owl Café, the accommodation in total extends to approximately 17,500 SqFt and surrounding acreage of Approx. 40 acres (16 Hectares).*
The site is run by the current owner and freeholder. The main income comes from the well-established holiday let business which has been run by the current owner for 15 years. Until recently, the business was run independently by its own popular website securing bookings all year round. The current owner has now appointed a specialist holiday let company who handles all bookings and advertising.
The Barn Owl Café has significant draw from holidaymakers and locals alike. Benefitting from the existing holidaymaker trade on site, the Café has a brisk daytime trade with evening potential and has the advantage of an independent website and over 100 TripAdvisor and Google reviews. (Ongoing business not affected). An antiques centre has been open for two years with full occupancy by small dealers, an indoor market and small garden sales area is under development.
Currently, the property has got planning to extend the accommodation by finishing the unconverted barns to create an additional three cottages. This would provide a further 10 bedrooms and could potentially increase income exponentially. These are currently being rebuilt.
Additional planning approval includes permission (now lapsed but verbal enquiries indicate it could be renewed) to erect six shepherd huts (possibly increased to 12) for holiday usage that can either be sold or retained to further diversify and maximise gross income.
The site currently generates a six figure income per annum and has potential to increase further based on the existing and potential future infrastructure.
No formal Income forecast has been carried out by the marketing agents, however, accounts can be made available to serious interested parties. HISTORY
Seaton Hall is an historic Manor mentioned in Domesday. Built originally as a Norman hunting lodge around 1130 it was the seat of the de Seaton family from 1139 to 1307. The last de Seaton, Sir Christopher, married Lady Christiana, the young widowed Countess of Mar, sister of Robert the Bruce. In 1507 Francis Bigod was born in the Manor house and he went on to lead Bigod's rebellion followed by his execution in 1537. Between 1548 and 2002 when it was purchased by the current owner it was a tenant farm. LOCATION
