Elegant double-fronted townhouse in prime, central York with off street parking and south facing garden.
This charming , imposing and rare double fronted family home is much admired in the locality and situated in the renowned, friendly neighbourhood community of East Mount Road in the heart of York. It has been painstakingly and meticulously restored through a program of significant renovation and upgrading by its current owners well known in the decorative living field. The stunning house is a perfect balance of modern day living in a true period home full of working Victorian fireplaces, stained glass, stripped pine window shutters and cornices.
On entry, the double width hallway immediately gives indication to the scale of the property. The flagstones have been sensitively restored to give a warming and impressive welcome to the home whilst retaining the original character. The original cornice in the hallway has been recreated and matched to the original features of the home throughout the rest of the house, emphasizing the level of detail in renovation works.
To the right, a large, bright dining space with bay windows and working period marble fireplace leads through to a fully modernised kitchen space with large island and ample storage solutions. Both rooms in this combination create a fantastic space for entertaining or enjoying evening family meals. The restored floorboards and beautiful décor make this a versatile and accommodating living space suited to many needs. The kitchen space also has the additional benefit for family living and leads on to a sensitively newly built downstairs shower room and WC.
Across the hallway, two impressively proportioned sitting rooms make up the downstairs accommodation both with smart shelving and useful storage. The first sitting room, a double aspect room, features a working marble fireplace creating a smart, cosy and relaxing setting to enjoy an evening of unwinding or entertaining. The second living room features a log burning fire with art nouveau surround and the benefit of double aspect views over the greenery of the south facing rear garden.
The ground floor accommodation is finished off with a south facing sunroom. This wonderful addition comes complete with air conditioning and heating to make the glass room an exceptional space to dine in and enjoy the gardens year-round.
To the first floor, a double width landing leads to an impressive main suite. The bedroom area offers size and space and is finished with working period fireplace and built in shelving. This bedroom space leads to an impressively sized dressing room with built in wardrobes and drawers and has the luxury benefit of its own marble tiled en-suite shower room. For families requiring the additional bedroom space, the dressing area could be converted easily back into a fifth bedroom.
Two further bedrooms add to the first floor living space. The second bedroom, again with working period fireplace, is south facing and has a great double aspect outlook over the homes garden and the adjacent Scarcroft Green, a wonderful aspect to overlook. Bedroom three, with working period fireplace, is currently utilised as a large home office though would make a beautifully sized double aspect bedroom should that be the preferred option. Both options feature the benefit of built in storage space with the former also having built in traditional wardrobes. The first floor is finished by the generously sized marble tiled family bathroom with a prominent cast-iron bath taking pride of place.
Second floor accommodation offers a range of options for potential owners. Currently, a large bedroom with en-suite provides perfect guest accommodation. The layout could comfortably make for multi-generational living options. Additionally the top floor also provides a spacious utility room with additional space for storage.
This home also benefits from a cellar underneath half of the house, creating perfect storage or workshop space or even a potential home gym. There is also a garden store currently used as potting room and for bikes but with potential to convert into an artists garden room or other such usage.
To finish the property, exceptionally rare for central York, a large walled south facing garden wraps around the rear of the property to the east side, leading on to the rarity of a driveway in such a location with electric car charging point. The gardens have been wonderfully created in a cottage garden style of 'rooms' to offer an abundance of greenery and different seating areas whilst maintaining a fantastic degree of privacy.
