DESCRIPTION With over 2300sqft of living space, this is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the few large style terraced properties in what is now the most popular part of the city. A decent garden and easy access by foot, car or train makes this an excellent all-round family house. 120 Bishopthorpe Road is a super family home which has been refurbished by the current owners who have loved living here and are relocating out of york.
The property offers spacious and beautifully presented accommodation over three floors and includes a refitted kitchen, useful utility area and redesigned beautiful garden area.
GROUND FLOOR The property is accessed through the original refurbished panelled front door leading to a vestibule and lovely wide hallway. The hall has the original mosaic tiled floor with ornate architrave, further area with window to the sun room and storage cupboard, large bay fronted sitting room which has been beautifully redecorated and has the original fire place with inset gas fire, piano room/dining room with oak flooring and double doors leading to the conservatory/sun room with door to the kitchen and doors leading to the outside, fantastic family kitchen which was installed in 2011 by York Kitchens Ltd and has a tiled floor. Beyond the kitchen is a super utility area which was converted in 2011 to provide inner hall and cloakroom with low flush w.c.
FIRST FLOOR To the first floor is the master bedroom with large bay window and ornate cornicing, redecorated in Laura Ashley designs and with original fire surround and huge walk in wardrobe; double bedroom 2 with en suite shower, further double bedroom and delightful house bathroom redesigned in 2014 and separate w/c.
SECOND FLOOR Large bedroom to the front with extensive built in storage and en suite shower room, further double bedroom to the rear elevation. There is additional attic space which could also be used for even more storage if needed.
OUTSIDE To the front the property has an attractive walled forecourt behind iron railings giving a high degree of privacy. This area has been attractively planted with a variety of shrubs. The rear garden was reconfigured and redesigned by Rachel Moore of 'Rachel's Designs'. It combines Indian stone flagged flooring with attractive raised beds constructed out of reclaimed bricks from the original property. The garden area is low maintenance (perfect for busy families), but provides an attractive area for entertaining and relaxing.
LOCAL AREA The property is situated on Bishopthorpe Road, an area famously described recently as the 'Notting Hill' of the North. It has an array of independent shops, restaurants and businesses, just a five minute stroll from the house. In fact, the 'Pig and Pastry' has recently been in the Guardian as one of York's top ten budget restaurants and cafes. There are other good cafes and delis, takeaways, hardware store, grocers, and arguably the best butchers in York.
The railway station is a 20 minute walk away and the property is equally accessible to the A64 for commuting and motorway access.
The rear of the property overlooks Rowntree park, making it a superb location for families wishing to enjoy the tennis courts and playground alongside the river.
