Designed by leading architects Blackmoor Sykes, Cragg Hill was built in 1932 for Mr Blackstone, director of the Bridlington Steam Laundry. The English seaside holiday was then in its heyday; the scores of hotels and guest houses in the locality would have been packed to bursting during the season and revenue from washing laundry must have been at its peak, judging by the lavish amount of money spent on the construction and furnishing of Cragg Hill and the landscaping of its idyllic grounds.

No expense was spared, from the handmade bricks, decorative plasterwork and extensive oak flooring and joinery, to the decorations of the spectacular Music Room and staircase hall. To furnish the house, Mr Blackstone visited the 1932 Ideal Home Exhibition where he purchased some of the finest pieces on display most of which is still in situ today together with many of the original light fittings.

The current owners purchased the property from Mr Blackstone’s daughter in 2000. Now there is an opportunity for a new custodian of this unique 1930s’ property with the option to purchase some of the original furniture by separate negotiation.
