About this property

  • This imposing Grade II listed Georgian townhouse is situated in a highly desirable area of York, offering peace, privacy and riverside views.

    The home is fronted by a large, private front garden with a beautiful mix of evergreen and deciduous foliage, creating a beautiful setting all year-round. In summer, the greenery of the garden creates a wonderful degree of privacy to enjoy time outdoors with friends, whilst in winter, when the leaves have fallen it opens up to wonderful views of the river and York Minster.

    On entry, the sensitivity in restoration is immediately evident with characteristically high ceilings giving the immediate impression of space, large, beautifully appointed flagstones run through the hallway and lower ground floor. To the left, the spacious sitting room features wonderfully restored cornice, gas fired log burner and large windows with views of the gardens. Along the hallway, the homes well-proportioned kitchen, complete with pantry offers everything expected from a modern day set-up alongside ample storage solutions. The ground floor accommodation is finished with a separate WC.

    The lower ground floor accommodation features a traditional formal dining room, finished with a wine cellar and additional storage. Central to the floor is a fully equipped utility room, complete with significant storage space and an airing cupboard and there is also a WC. The home has the flexibility to create self-contained living accommodation, perfect for multi-generational living. Alongside the living space on offer, there is independent outdoor access to the rear courtyard which is a real benefit, perfect for entertaining guests.

    Moving through the property to the first floor, two superbly spacious rooms make up the floors living space. To the left, the large principal suite comes complete with built in wardrobe space and a well presented en suite shower room. Across the landing, the traditionally decorated sitting room comes with a striking fireplace and wooden flooring sensitive to the period to further emphasize the majestic character as could be expected of a Georgian home. Alongside the splendid décor, two large windows flood the room with an abundance of natural light, creating a wonderfully bright space throughout the course of the day. Minster views and windows overlooking the greenery of the garden really make this room stand out.

    To the second floor are three well proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom. Each bedroom offers suitable space for family living, whilst the large family bathroom features a large, beautiful free standing bath tub.

    The very top of the home offers further flexibility in configuration and can easily lend itself to an additional bedroom, storage room or even a play room.

    Detail, care, attention and sensitivity have been at the forefront of the renovation of this home over a number of years. The balance of modern and period is in abundance with additional touches such as underfloor heating featuring throughout the home, laid under beautifully wooden flooring and flagstones.

    The outside courtyard space to the rear is accessed via French doors leading from the kitchen. An ideally situated seating area, perfectly poised to enjoy a morning coffee in the sun is the first greeting on exit from the house. Stairs lead down to the large courtyard space with independent access to the lower ground floor and access to the large double garage, totalling over 300 square feet of space. As an added benefit, it is also fitted with an electric car charging port.
