Accommodation company USnooze markets the chalet and has shared a look inside the unique building, reports TeessideLive.
The Grade II listed South Cliff Residence was designed by Sir Joseph Paxton, who was also responsible for the design of the Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition of 1851 as well as the gardens of Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.
It was built around 1860 to house the manager of the famous Victorian seaside resort’s spa complex and now has five period-style bedrooms, four en-suite bathrooms and period-style interior design combined with modern amenities.

The striking building sits at the entrance to the Scarborough South Cliff Italian Gardens and commands stunning views of the beach, sea and harbour.
When ownership of the spa passed to Scarborough City Council in the 1950s, the chalet followed suit and Town Clerk’s Secretary Jessica Bearpark took up residence.
