  • Bedrooms: 5

A comprehensively improved and significantly extended detached family house finished to the highest specification, and set within stunning lawned gardens, in arguably York's most sought after location.

Ground Floor

Internally, the property welcomes you into the spacious hall from which the principal ground floor rooms flow. The oak turn staircase leads to the first floor accommodation and also houses a built-in under stairs cupboard.

The spacious lounge is located at the front of the house with cast iron stove fireplace set within a stone surround and hearth. It benefits from internal speakers (currently linked to Sonos) with recessed ceiling downlighters, television and Cat5 point, and double radiator.

Internal French doors lead through into the property s open plan breakfast kitchen which forms part of the skilful extension and is, without doubt, the feature room of the property. Within the kitchen area is a range of Dove Grey high gloss base and wall units with oak block work surfaces and breakfast bar to seat four. There is a floor mounted Stoves five-point double oven range cooker and integral Siemens dishwasher which are available by separate negotiation. There is also ample space for a freestanding fridge freezer unit.

Six double glazed Velux roof lights (two of which are remote and rain activated) look down onto a cosy yet bright family seating area, large enough to house a sofa, armchair and coffee table. Whilst bifold doors look out to the decking, patio and garden beyond.

There is also a formal dining area which can fit a table to seat 12, as well as sideboard or dresser units.

In addition, this large living space features integral speakers, recessed ceiling downlighters, built-in bookshelves, television and Cat5 point, feature oak flooring and underfloor heating.

Located off the kitchen is a downstairs shower room which has a contemporary low flush WC, wash hand basin set in a vanity surround, and chrome heated towel rail, in addition to a double fronted walk-in shower cubicle with waterfall and handheld shower attachment.

The shower room leads on to a playroom or snug area, with ceiling downlighters, double radiator and television and Cat5 point. This room is also accessible via the main entrance hall.

A rear hall with glass walkway and roof lantern leads through from the kitchen into the converted garage which now forms a quite superb cinema or garden room. Bifold doors open fully onto the patio creating a fabulous summer entertaining space and a mezzanine sleeping area, accessed by ladder, adds extra double sleeping accommodation if required. Double glazed Velux rooflights with blinds, storage heater, space for electric feature fireplace and television and Cat 5 point all feature.

The ground floor accommodation is completed by the utility room which provides integral garage access. It also features base and wall units, an L-shaped fitted worktop with stainless steel sink unit and recess under providing space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer. The utility room houses the Veissmann gas fired central heating boiler as well as the pressurised hot water cylinder.

First Floor

The first floor landing leads to four main bedrooms as well as the family bathroom and linen store. It includes a double radiator, built-in book shelves and recessed ceiling downlighters. It also houses the space saving staircase which leads to the second floor accommodation.

The master bedroom suite is located at the rear of the house with uPVC framed double glazed French doors and Juliet balcony. Twin double fronted and a further triple fronted range of wardrobes are included within the sale and the bedroom benefits from a contemporary three quarter height mounted radiator as well as recessed ceiling downlighters and a television aerial point. The en-suite features a modern white WC and wash hand basin with vanity unit storage, in addition to a walk-in shower cubicle with full height tile surround and heated chrome towel rail.

There are three further double bedrooms to the first floor, all of which come with radiators, recessed ceiling downlighters, television aerial points and uPVC framed double glazed casement windows.

The family bathroom has a contemporary three piece white suite with vanity surround and mounted shower head over the bath. There is a heated chrome towel rail as well as recessed ceiling downlighters and a fitted over-mirror strip light.

Second Floor

The contemporary space-saving staircase leads to the second floor loft suite. This was converted approximately three years ago and includes a spacious double bedroom with double glazed Velux roof light and blind. The well-proportioned landing/seating area is ideal as a children s TV room and spacious enough to house a double sofabed for extra sleeping accommodation. There is also a separate bathroom with low flush WC, pedestal hand wash basin and inset shower with tile splashbacks. Boarded loft storage is accessed via the bathroom.

The internal accommodation benefits from gas fired central heating, uPVC double glazed windows and external doors and Cat5 distribution throughout the house. It has been imaginatively designed and finished to the highest specification.


Externally, the property is accessed directly off Stockton Lane through a pillared and electric-gated entrance. The substantial front driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles and access to the garage, which comes equipped with electric, light and power.

The property s front garden is laid to lawn over a robust plastic paving grid system, to provide further parking. The lawn is surrounded by herbaceous boarders with a gated side access and electric power point.

One of the outstanding features of the property is its stunning rear garden which stretches to approximately 100 ft in length, creating the ideal family environment.

Adjoining the rear elevation is a substantial flagged sun patio with raised decking providing ample space for freestanding garden furniture. The patio steps out onto the rear garden which is extensively laid to lawn with raised vegetable beds and herbaceous side border.

To the rear of the lawn is a purposely designed wood chip play area and a hardstanding with garden shed which is included within the sale. The rear garden is private and fully enclosed to all sides by hedged and fenced boundaries with outside water and electricity both available.

The property has never been brought to the open market, remaining in the same family since it was built and represents a very rare opportunity indeed. Viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate the true quality of the accommodation on offer.
