A handsome Grade II listed period townhouse with off street parking, in a prime location close to city centre
Dating from the turn of the 19th century, this attractive property is a wonderful example of a Grade II listed, period townhouse close to York City Centre. This beautifully presented property was once home to renowned water colour artist Mary Ellen Best
Retaining many original features including fireplaces, staircase and balustrade, timber sash windows and door handles, the wealth of period detail coupled with practical details for the modern family make this magnificent home stand out from the rest on this desirable road.
The ground floor provides two reception rooms, one a well proportioned family dining room with original fireplace and impressively high ceilings, the other a study or snug. In addition there is a well equipped kitchen served by a useful pantry and sizeable boot room/utility and additional cloakroom. There is also a sizeable cellar currently used for storage but the space could be used as a gym or play room.
To the first floor is the beautifully proportioned drawing room with original fireplace and large sash windows, which provide a great deal of natural light. Across the landing, the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom overlooks the garden and neighbouring tree lined street.
The second floor provides two bedrooms and the main family bathroom with a separate bath and shower as well as additional storage space. Both of the generously proportioned light bright bedrooms have feature fireplaces and built in wardrobe space.
Two further bedrooms make up the top floor, complete with an additional shower room, perfect for accommodating visiting guests or teenagers to give them their own privacy and space within the house.
The garden includes a landscaped garden at the rear of the property with numerous points of interest and a central parterre. To the side of the house is a sun trap courtyard garden, perfect for barbeques or coffee. Electric gates allow for off street parking for multiple cars. The house fronts on to further garden space, formal in style but designed for easy maintenance, bordered by mature hedging and a dwarf brick wall.
