  • Situated in a desirable location in York, this beautiful family home offers wonderfully spacious open plan living on a large plot. Meticulously extended and renovated by the current owners, this home is the perfect fit for the modern day lifestyle.

    The ground floor accommodation has everything that could be needed for family living with the open plan kitchen/ dining /living space being at the heart of the home. With the addition of a large sky light and floor to ceiling glass sliding doors spanning the width of the rear, this spacious addition enjoys the benefit of natural light throughout the course of the whole day. The kitchen has been thoughtfully designed to look over the greenery of the garden and configured for convenience with the additional benefit of a large kitchen island/ breakfast bar.

    A separate utility room is accessed from the kitchen, ideal for laundry. The home office sits to the rear, perfect for accommodating the current work from home culture, an ever growing consideration in today's agile working climate.

    To the front, the home offers two large sitting areas. The first sitting room offers large bay windows and plenty of space. This is a great room to utilise for multiple purposes, currently used as a music room and home library, it is an ideal setting to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet at the end of the day.

    The second lounge again offers ample space for multiple usage. The proportions of the room mean that it could comfortably be used as a home cinema or a large family room to enjoy watching TV. As with the first sitting room, the addition of a log burner makes it cozy and comfortable to enjoy.

    The first floor offers four large bedrooms and a recently modernised large family bathroom. The principal bedroom has been designed with comfort and luxury in mind. Not only does the bedroom overlook the greenery to the rear, it has the benefit of its own dressing room with built in wardrobes and en suite with shower. Bedroom two, has the convenience of built in wardrobes and overlooks the front of the property with large, south facing bay windows to illuminate the room throughout the day. Bedrooms three and four, both substantial in size, comfortably surpass in size what can be expected of double bedrooms by many standards.

    To the rear, a large, landscaped patio area extends from the kitchen/dining space to create a fantastic dining, barbeque or general entertainment area. There is an extensive lawn and the garden has the benefit of all day sun throughout the course of the summer.
