    About this property

    • Dating back to the late 19th century, this impressive period townhouse is situated on one of the most sought-after streets in York. With an attractive Victorian façade and striking period features, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a historic house with a pretty garden and double garage.

      Arranged over three floors offering just over 2,200 square feet of living accommodation, the property has wonderful high ceilings and generous, well proportioned rooms throughout. On entering the property you are immediately greeted by a light entrance hall with striking original mosaic tiles. Continuing through the ground floor there are two generous reception rooms, both with wood burning stoves. The sitting room features a large bay window, marble fireplace, ornate ceiling rose and cornicing. The more casual family room has French doors opening on to the courtyard garden, ideal for entertaining.

      A particular highlight of the property is the spacious kitchen with its traditional, hand crafted wooden units, Aga and stone flagged flooring. There is space for a dining table and double doors open on to an attractive wooden framed conservatory.

      The first floor is home to the impressive principle bedroom, with a walk in wardrobe leading through to an elegantly fitted en suite bathroom. There is a further double bedroom with house bathroom next door and a family shower room.

      The family bathroom and three further bedrooms can be found on the second floor, two doubles and a third smaller room which would make an excellent study with fabulous aspects of York Minister.

      There is a pretty courtyard to the rear of the property with access to the double garage.
