Whitby Engine Shed
Conversion to 11 apartments
Grade II Listed
The Whitby Engine Shed was built in 1847 and designed by GT Andrews.
This Grade II listed building had fallen into disrepair in the past, and it’s future commercial viability was uncertain.
It was a car park when it was purchased, and was sold with planning permission for nine holiday apartments.
Upon buying the property it was discovered that the end had been demolished during the war — it was possible to extend it, to add two further apartments, making eleven in total.
Great care has been taken to keep and enhance the original features of the building, such as the large metal grills (now across the windows), stonework, and oak beams.
The apartments are being built to a high-quality specification, providing luxury accommodation for holiday makers and train enthusiasts in the tourist destination of Whitby, Yorkshire.
