EVEN if it wasn’t on Bishopthorpe Road we’d want to live in this stunning, three storey period town house. But it is and that means on your doorstep is the country’s finest high street, So who wouldn’t want to settle down here?
That said the house is the main reason for our interest and with good reason. It has been extended, upgraded and maintained to a high standard providing bright and spacious living accommodation.
In brief we have an entrance vestibule and hall with mosaic flooring. That’s always a good sign of quality to come. Proof, if it was needed, comes immediately in the living room with its bay window and a fantastic, open plan living kitchen with sitting/dining area, patio doors to the garden and a full range of quality base and wall units. There is plumbing for a fridge/freezer, an integrated dishwasher, solid wood work surfaces and under floor heating.
The room also benefits from large Velux ceiling windows with blinds, spot and pendant lighting together with integrated blinds on all patio doors and window.
A sliding door leads to a handy utility with wall mounted gas central heating boiler, sink and plumbing for the washing machine.
On the first floor a lovely galleried landing invites us into the two principal bedrooms, both good sized doubles, and the study/nursery room.
The family bathroom features a free standing bath and separate large walk-in digital shower cubicle, together with a pedestal wash hand basin, low level WC and chrome towel rail.
The second floor boasts a pair of single bedrooms and a useful shower room/WC, again with digital shower, wash hand basin, low level WC, and chrome towel rail.
Outside the front forecourt has a brick boundary wall, while to the rear is an attractive courtyard with stone paved patio area, brick boundary wall and gate giving access to the rear lane.
Oh, and did we mention that this house is just a stone’s throw from Britain’s finest high street?
