House, Robin Hood's Bay, North Yorkshire

The sun's shining, I'm in a seaside mood. Here's an odd and wonderful home on one of my favourite bits of the East Coast.
This detached, 1920s timber house at Robin Hood's Bay, around five miles from Whitby, used to be two Scandinavian chalets - joined together in 2002 to make one big, five-bedroomed home.
It has stunning sea views:

Currently used by an extended family, it would work equally well as a split and shared holiday home or as one big house. Although the properties are joined, they each have separate bathrooms, kitchen, lounge and bedrooms.
There's a lovely, fashionably "vintage" feel to most of the rooms with original doors and cladding that I think you'd want to try and hang onto:

The property sits at the end of a private drive, screened by trees and with its own sweet little garden area. There's parking for six cars and a detached timber garage.

It's on the market through Edward Astin at offers around £195k. More details and pictures here and PDF here.
