Interest is high in this former foghorn station, on the market for £750,000 with Jacksons, which has some of the best sea views in Britain. Hornblower Lodge sits on a one acre site on the cliff top at Hawsker, between Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay, and is now a four-bedroom home with an adjoining, one-bedroom holiday let and tea garden, so offers an amazing live-work opportunity.
The station on the Cleveland Way dates to 1904 and still has its 20ft long, 8ft high foghorns. It was converted into a home in 1992 and the present owners John and Janet Evans bought it 14 years ago. They have since renovated the property and turned it into a profitable live-work home. The house has a sitting room, breakfast room, kitchen, utility, a store room, snug, storage room, bathroom, shower room and four bedrooms, one with an ensuite. The holiday let has a living area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Outside, is a drive, parking area, courtyard, laundry, outside WC, workshop and seating areas plus tea garden kiosk.
