The Gazebo now stands at the side of a residential street, but originally it was part of larger gardens.

Thanks to Neil for the following info :-

The house dates from the late 1700’s and so does the gazebo. Until the early 1960s the house was owned by a doctor who held his surgeries there. The main house was split into two in the mid 1960s and my Aunt and Uncle have lived there since then. The cottage at the end may be older and may have been two residences since it had two staircases one of which has been removed. The gazebo would have provided a view of the sea beyond the garden wall.

  1. There’s one of those in the garden of Sunnyfield Villa over the road from Sunnyfield House, I guess it was from the gardens of Sunnyfield House before Westgate Road was put in.

  2. Seen this a thousand times, but Andy’s comment made me do a bit of digging. Roger Darnton (Estate Agents: on google say (in part)

    “Sunnyfield Villa was constructed in 1877/1878 by Mr William Paver, Surveyor and Inspector of Nuisances to the Guisborough district and is believed to have been the first house to have been built as part of the residential development of the former ‘Sunnyfield House’ estate carried out under the auspices of the Saltburn Extension Company in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Being therefore originally constructed as a detached house, which it remained until the development of the adjacent terrace in 1903, the house illustrates many features of this distinctive period of building. After William Paver’s death, the house remained in the occupation of successive members of the family until 1947 and this long link is signified by the family crest which is engraved in the glazed entrance door casement.

    Of particular historic interest is the garden terrace area which is bounded by an early nineteenth century sandstone wall surmounted by decorative wrought iron work and the eighteenth century gazebo which originally formed part of the garden ornamentation of ‘Sunnyfield House’ before the development of Westgate Road.

    As a result of their historical significance both the gazebo and the retaining garden terrace wall and wrought iron work are scheduled on the Department of Environment’s List as being of architectural and historical interest.”
