There is also excellent access to York’s mainline railway station, with regular express services to major cities including London (Kings Cross under 2 hours), Edinburgh and Manchester.


Built circa 1820, the property has been in the same ownership for over 20 years and is a fine example of a Georgian townhouse with Victorian enhancements which complement this wonderful home.

The beautifully proportioned accommodation retains a wealth of character including original period features and turning staircase.

Thoroughly maintained over the years there has been a sympathetic approach to the period features and enhanced with an abundance of natural light arranged over the 5 floors.

Leading from the hall is a bright sitting room with large bay to the front and situated to the rear a sizeable dining room, a lovely spacious contemporary dining kitchen with door leading to the garden and separate utility.

The first and second floor boasts 5 bedrooms of excellent proportions and 2 bathrooms.

The third floor provides excellent versatile accommodation for teenagers/ guests with large walk in wardrobe/dressing area with storage and 2 bedrooms.

There is good provision of storage throughout the house with fitted cupboards, a large store to the lower ground floor and a further good sized reception room currently being used as an office with a large bay window to the front.

To the rear, the property is complimented by a pretty rear walled garden with paved terrace and lawned garden, providing areas for seating and entertaining.

There is the potential to buy the adjoining 2 bed cottage, by separate negotiation.
