About this property

  • York Hill has many desirable properties, each with its own personality and style in what is a proudly kept conservation area. This house stands proud in its place and is no exception to the rule.

    The accommodation comprises; a good sized entrance hallway and WC (which is also where you will find the boiler neatly stored away), a bright and spacious living room with French doors leading the patio and garden beyond, a dining room with pretty views of the garden, kitchen and conservatory which is a lovely calm space framed by the many beautiful and mature trees; a personal favourite being the red Japanese acer. In the hallway there is a very useful, albeit small, area to site a desk and computer.

    On the first floor you will find the main bedroom which spans the full depth of the house and draws in an abundance of natural light through two aspects of windows. The views from the front facing window and breathtaking. There are two further good sized double bedrooms, a separate WC and a family bathroom. From the landing there is loft access via a pull down ladder.


    To the front is a driveway with space to park two cars in tandem and a very good sized garage. A beautiful magnolia tree sits in what is a delightful garden area to the front of the house. Side access is offered on both sides of the house.

    To the rear is a lovely patio space, perfect for BBQs and alfresco dining. Beyond the patio is a picture perfect lawn which is bordered with delightful trees and mature shrubs and bushes. The present owners investment in the garden is evident and really captures and compliments the feel of the house and the conservation area in which it occupies. To the very rear and right hand side of the garden is an area which lends itself perfectly for an outbuilding/annex. Though do be sure to obtain the necessary consents when considering.

I had one of those 'if I had the money' moments whilst stood in the garden of this truly stunning property. The kerb appeal, the character, the doesn't get any better than this in Loughton. As soon as you walk out of the door the birdsong is the first thing you hear.
