Property Description

Full description

A substantial and elegantly proportioned late Regency gem with spectacular "flying" staircase in one of York's most desirable residential areas

Substantial Late Regency Gem
One Of York's Most Desirable Residential Areas
Spectacular "Flying" Staircase
Detached Double Garage

Dating from circa 1840 and Listed Grade II as being of architectural and historical importance, 126 The Mount is constructed of attractive mellow brick elevation under a slate roof with a sill band at first floor level, a modillioned eaves cornice and sash windows with painted stone sills and brick-on-end arches and displays many typical features of the late Regency period. Of particular note externally is the impressive doorcase with its engaged pilasters, panelled reveals and a cornice supported by consoles, all housing a four panelled front door with glass overlight.

The layout and design of the property are very representative of many of the fine terraced houses built at that time on the edge of the city centre and provide quite exceptional and extensive accommodation. Internally, there are a great number of period architectural features to include sash windows, moulded plasterwork cornices and arches, doorcases with architraves around, working shutters and deep skirting boards to many of the rooms. Of particular note is the Staircase Hall with its quite superb cantilevered "flying" staircase which rises to the second floor where there is a cupola making for a most light and spacious centre to the house. Completing the picture is an extensive Lower Ground Floor which offers ample space for the Domestic Offices and Wine Cellar as well as for a good sized Office/Study with Store Room off and ideal for those who might wish to work from home. Certainly, the property is one of the more distinguished and important properties in the city and occupies a fine position on The Mount which itself forms the main south westerly approach to the city lying close to the large public open space of the Knavesmire and the renowned York Racecourse. The main line Railway Station is within easy walking distance and from where there are regular services to London (King's Cross), Newcastle and Edinburgh as well as to Leeds and Harrogate.

The property also has the undoubted benefit of a substantial Double Garage with Billiard Room above which adjoins the rear boundary of the garden and enjoys separate vehicular access from St. Catherine's Place. There is additional Residents' Only parking on The Mount itself.

The sale of 126 The Mount therefore offers potential purchasers the rare opportunity to acquire a quite superb spacious period town house with a private paved walled garden and secure off-street parking in what is considered to be one of the prime residential areas of the city.
