Eagle House

A superb opportunity to purchase a former café and bistro with Bed and Breakfast rooms above and flexible owner s accommodation, currently used as a substantial family home. Subject to your imagination, this could become something really special in a prime central Great Ayton location: a wonderful home, thriving business or both.

Accommodation

A stone s throw from the village green and High Street, Eagle House has an interesting history. Designed by the famous Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse, who was awarded the Royal Gold Medal for Architecture in 1878 (although he was perhaps more well known for his designs at the Natural History Museum and Manchester Town Hall as well as projects at Oxford and Cambridge universities), Eagle House is still a fine looking building. It was the family home and business of Jeremiah Thistlethwaite, a well-known Ayton entrepreneur who ran his grocery, drapery and clothing departments under The Sign of the Eagle whilst his sister Margaret ran a bakery and café next door and above Harbottle s undertakers.

Currently, Eagle House is laid out as a mix of both former commercial space and residential accommodation. Although now exclusively used as a residential property, the location and position in the centre of thriving Great Ayton will offer opportunities for both business and/or residential use.

On the ground floor, there is a separate entrance for the substantial café and bistro, which has space for approximately 40 people and includes a separate bar area as well as a commercial kitchen and large cold storage room behind. This was formerly known as Tally s, a popular local café.

The owner s accommodation is accessed by the main front door to Eagle House, with a central hallway leading to the large living room with fireplace, further double doors opening to the dining room and onwards to the kitchen. There are stairs to the first floor and a door leading out to the rear courtyard.

The first floor is currently laid out as seven large bedrooms, six with en suite facilities, along with a study and further bathroom. Two of the bedrooms and bathrooms could be kept separate for the owner s personal use, with private access from the ground floor and a mezzanine floor, all closed off from the main house if required.

Externally

To the rear of the property, there is a courtyard with outbuildings, timber stairs to the potential annexe and steps leading up to the sunny gardens, patio and summerhouse. For further storage, there is a large timber outbuilding and we understand there is access to the cold store room via double doors to the rear of the former café.

Tenure

The property is freehold and will be offered with vacant possession on completion.
