Two (or three) Yorkshire do-ups

Having just got back from babysitting duties in my home city*, I thought I show you a couple of Yorkshire do-ups (and one that may be past it).
This down-at-heel cottage in the village of Weaverthrorpe, in Ryedale, is currently under offer, so probably a bit naughty of me to show it to you. But, it's a cash-only sale so my guess is there'll be a bit of argy-bargying going on over the price.
And I like the name - Woodbine Cottage - all flat caps, whippets and gaspers.
Downstairs are three reception rooms, kitchen and pantry. Upstairs four bedrooms, bathroom and loo.

There are some nice features and some fairly bizarre decor (flower photos and trash wood panels, anyone?) and a lot of rooms look damp - although the ceiling tiles don't help. But it's a good size property in a lovely location with a big garden.

On the market through Cundalls, at offers around £150k. Details and more pix here and here.
The terraced cottage, below, isn't my usual sort of pick but I loved the space and possibilities of the attached warehouse.

It's in the centre of the market town of Kirbymoorside, on the edge of the North York Moors.
There's a kitchen, sitting room, loo and cellar downstairs, and three bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.

The two-storey warehouse adds around 75 sq.m to the space, and there's a nice big garden out back.

It's on the market through Rounthwaite & Woodhead at £150k. Details and more pix here and here.
Finally, the Old Pavilion, below, in Scarborough, was sent to me by reader Emily. She writes:
Been driving past this building my whole life and I love. If I had the money I’d have already brought it. I’ll be very sad to see it torn down but it may be beyond saving. 

Not great pic, but the Pavilion is centre right, fronting the playing field
Unfortunately, it's on the market as land with planning consent to demolish it and build a pair of semis in its place. That may or may not be because of the state of the building, the agent's details don't say much, but it's been on the market since last year.
It had been part of the sale of Bramcote School - all the other elements have already sold.

The school is edged in red at the front, the Old Pavilion at the back
On the market through Fordy Marshall with guide price of £200k. Details here and more pix here.
