Saltburn by the Sea
The ‘Jewel’ streets consist of an eclectic range of period properties, mostly from the VICTORIAN era.
Proving popular with executive couples within apartments and families within the larger properties, the streets have become even more sought after in recent years.
Offering an idyllic lifestyle beside the seaside along with a rich and varied range of amenities, leisure facilities, transport links and local attractions, what a great choice to make one’s home.
With Saltburn Primary School & Huntcliff School both being rated by Ofsted as ‘Good’, there are no concerns over the educational facilities nearby.
At the end of the street, Milton Street has become a hub of the community with its popular bars, restaurants and other favoured eateries.
At the opposite side of the street, you will find the famous and oldest (working) water balanced cliff tramway in Britain giving access from the town to the Pier below.
Commuting either south to Whitby or north to Middlesbrough & beyond, the A174 is easily accessible by car or via the rail links provided by Saltburn Railway Station.
Over the years, having been modernised, many period properties have lost their original charm and character.
29 Diamond Street, albeit in need of some refurbishment, boasts many impressive original features throughout just waiting to be restored.
The original tiling from the front garden path, gives a real sense of Victorian grandeur on approach to the front door. Once inside, there is no disappointment, the original vestibule door with the stunning stained glass inserts welcomes you inside, where there are the original floor tiles and features including a servants bells.
There are two reception rooms, the first being of a comprehensive size, situated at the front of the property, flooded by natural light from the big bay window along with deep skirting boards, high ceilings and has a truly superior original fireplace with an open coal fire housed within a tiled back and hearth.
The second reception room is believed to be one of the very few with original stained glass linear bow windows on the street. Another original fireplace in marble accompanies the room.
A dining room and kitchen complete the ground floor.
Four bedrooms are found on the first floor, many retaining the original fireplaces along with deep skirting boards and high ceilings.
A three piece bathroom with panelled bath, pedestal wash hand basin and separate WC serve the property.
Formerly utilised as the maids’ quarters, the second floor has a further three bedrooms, again with more Victorian fireplaces and features.
The property has a spacious enclosed rear yard with double opening gates to allow vehicle access and off-street parking.
The history of 29 Diamond Street
The property was built in 1897 for Mr Harry Frederick Hebblethwaite, the Manager of the Cleveland Gentleman’s Club in Middlesbrough.
Born in London in 1853, Hebblethwaite's father worked as a carpenter. The original owner's taste and attention to detail is reflected in the property, which was built to his own specifications, seen in the high standard of carpentry touches in the balustrade, decorative door casings and sash windows.
The property has never before been on the open market and has only ever had two owners.
The second and current family purchased the house in 1964. As the property comes to the open market for the very first time, the current vendors are excited for the property to be restored into the true spectacle of a family home that it once was.
