Location

St. Raphael lies within a York Conservation area, in a quiet, no-through road, just off Bootham. The house, built in 1890, is late Victorian, as are most of the houses in Queen Annes Road.

The peaceful surroundings belie proximity to the bustling city centre, which is accessed along York's grand and ancient street Bootham. Alternatively, there is a short walk into the heart of the city through the beautiful and historic Museum Gardens.

The Minster, the National Railway Museum, most major attractions, and a host of restaurants, cafes, pubs, bistros and tea rooms are within strolling distance. York's main line railway station is also a short walk over a pedestrian bridge.

Description


The particularly spacious accommodation (approximate internal area of 2640 sq. ft.) extends over three floors. There are 5 double guest bedrooms and 2 family rooms, occupying the top two floors. All 7 rooms are en-suite with walk-in shower, wash basin and toilet. All 7 rooms are tastefully decorated and themed on unique aspects of York's heritage. All rooms have external windows, giving a feeling of light and air.

The property was comprehensively refurbished, including a new central heating system, re-wiring and re-plumbing, when acquired by the present owners in 2004. Further significant improvements were made in 2009 to include new en-suite shower cubicles, with Mermaid boarding, throughout, complete tongue and groove boarding of the entire, expansive attic, and creation of a roof skylight to bring additional light to the original Victorian staircase.

The commercial kitchen, large guest breakfast room, and reception area occupy the ground floor.

To the rear of the building, beyond the kitchen, is a self-contained apartment, which provides comfortable and private owners' accommodation. This includes a sitting room, bedroom, large walk-in wardrobe and separate bathroom.

The property also benefits from a small front garden and an attractive, private, walled, south-facing, courtyard garden, with gated access to the rear.

The property has mains water, gas, electricity and drainage.

There is a gas fired central heating system.

Broadband Wi-Fi throughout.
