Significant town house with delightful garden and large garage/workshop which has been extensively refurbished by the current owner.
Entrance vestibule, staircase hall, kitchen breakfast room, utility room, dining room, drawing room, five bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, superb walled garden, large garage and workshop with hydraulic lift
36 Monkgate was built in 1796 partly over a carriageway to which the earlier arched entrance still remains. This now provides an impressive entrance to a sizeable garage and additional workshop with hydraulic lift; ideal for the car enthusiast. The workshop is accessed directly from the Kitchen/dining room and could easily be converted into a gym or children’s playroom while still leaving plenty of space for parking in the large garage.
The house stands just 100 yards from the city walls and enjoys Minster views from the impressive first floor drawing room. The spacious accommodation is arranged over 3 floors around a central stairwell and as with all good Georgian properties, symmetry and balance are to the fore. The rooms are generous in size, ideally suited to modern day living yet retain many delightful period features.
The ground floor benefits from a large kitchen family room and formal dining room, and is transversed by a superb staircase which rises through shallow treads and wide landing areas to the third floor where it splits to provide access to the bedrooms.
The property is large without being rambling and lends itself to a variety of configurations whilst currently providing 5 bedrooms with 2 ensuite bathrooms and plumbing in place for a 3rd.
Outside as in the property continues to impress with a superb south facing garden with terraced seating areas, mature trees and beds around a central lawn. In addition potential exists for a substantial roof terrace at first floor level.
