4 bedroom Town House
Guide Price £975,000
The recent conversion of the former Purey Cust Nuffield Hospital in York has resulted in a select and exceptional gated development of luxury apartments and townhouses. Stafford House is a most elegant 4 bedroom townhouse offering beautifully proportioned accommodation, with period features retained or faithfully replicated where possible, including many original doors, fire surround and plaster cornicing. Further enhancements include video entryphone, and a ‘whole house’ ventilation system with heat recovery. The property is also wired for Virgin Media systems, which includes access to the fastest UK fibre Broadband network (100Mb).
This superb property combines a sensitive blend of character and period features, together with all the conveniences of 21st Century living. Forming part of an exceptional Grade II listed building lying in gated and landscaped grounds, and in a superb city centre location, the house benfits from 2 car parking spaces and enjoys exceptional views of York Minster.
Off the welcoming hallway with its fine plaster cornicing lies a generously sized study with elegant original fire surround, ‘Living Flame’ gas fire, plaster cornice, and delightful views towards York Minster. The hallway leads through to the spacious dining kitchen, which boasts a range of bespoke hand painted units, granite worktops and upstands, and integrated appliances. The attractive orangery off the kitchen provides excellent additional living/dining space, and gives access to the rear courtyard garden. A stairway from the kitchen leads to the lower ground floor where there is a wc., a useful utility area and a gym/media room, suitable for a number of additional functions – eg home office.
At first floor level is a superbly proportioned drawing room with plaster cornice, ‘Living Flame’ gas fire with timber surround, and wonderful elevated views towards York Minster. In addition at this level is a w.c, and the master bedroom suite comprising the master bedroom with plaster cornice, and a fully tiled en-suite shower room with high quality fittings including Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware. There is also a useful dressing room.
On the second floor are three further bedrooms, one of which benefits from exceptional Minster views. In addition is a fully tiled house bathroom, again with high quality fittings, including Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware. It should be noted that there is also potential for storage in the partly boarded roof space.

There are numerous bars and restaurants catering for a wide variety of tastes and an extensive range of retail outlets, as well as two theatres, art galleries and museums.
The city is also well known for its fine schools, including St Peter's, The Mount and Bootham School to name but a few.
