A truly unique family home surrounded by generous, private gardens.
One of York's most striking examples of modern architecture, set in a walled landscaped garden. A property of complete contrasts, it was originally built as a modest cottage in 1932. In
1969 it was extended by its original architect owner using modern plans and materials to provide a home which is perhaps unique in the city.
Inspired by the designs of Mies van der Rohe, the modern section provides the principal living accommodation, opening onto the garden which itself forms part of the overall design.
It now offers the perfect opportunity for a buyer to improve upon and add their own mark to this statement property.
Tucked away in a secluded position behind a large front garden and mature trees the house has the benefit of being surrounded by its own grounds affording it a great deal of privacy. The original part of the property is an attractive brick build, giving way to a modern style extension with floor to ceiling windows on three sides creating an incredibly bright kitchen-living-dining space with doors opening onto a covered patio looking over the pond, creating a wonderful outdoor living space perfect for al fresco dining.
Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a study which was a bedroom and snug/bedroom four, both with bay windows and the house bathroom. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a WC.
Externally, the property is entered by a long paved driveway providing ample parking for several cars. The garden has a number of mature boarders and lawned areas to the front and a pretty walled garden to the rear. There is also a double garage and the sauna will be included in the sale.
