A handsome gii* listed period townhouse, recently refurbished and reconfigured to provide very well appointed and deceptively spacious accommodation boasting fabulous natural light levels and contrasting views of the city. There are numerous versatile living spaces, a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room and 5 good sized bedrooms, including a further guest bedroom/snug on the lower ground floor, with an adjoining games room and utility area.
Whilst much of the original integrity of the building remains, the entire building has been comprehensively renovated and sensitively refurbished forming a stunning family home with particularly versatile accommodation extending to just over 3100 square feet. Included in the refurbishment the property has been networked with cat 5 cabling and also an adt burglar alarm system which has both fire and carbon monoxide detectors in addition to panic buttons installed on each floor. There is an external cctv system along with video entry for the main front door which is operated from mobile phones or iPad’s and the temperature can also be controlled in each room throughout the property.
The house is particularly stylish whilst still offering many original features and particular highlights include the stunning decorative plaster work on the ceilings and many original fireplaces
throughout. Spread over five floors the versatile accommodation is arranged around the breath-taking grand central staircase leading to floors of near perfect symmetry. To the side is an inviting patio and several stores and there is the potential of adding another outside area with the addition of a roof terrace.
Ideally situated on the corner of a quiet road in the heart of the Micklegate Quarter, one of York's most vibrant and popular leisure areas; the property enjoys a prominent position amidst an eclectic mix of artisan bars and restaurants. The area has long been considered one of York's premier entertainment areas and is steeped in history being the Royal entrance to the city. Recently very successfully rebranded, it has enjoyed a seismic shift with an influx of independent boutique style businesses, and stylish residential conversions giving a unique 'village' feel; undeniably it is fast becoming one of York’s most sought after and popular areas.
