Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

We are proud to offer this most charming detached family house set in large mature grounds. The property was constructed in the early 1930's by the Joseph Rowntree Trust for their senior management, with this particular property being one of the largest of the scheme. These properties are extremely sought after, partly for the location but also for both the design, giving beautifully proportioned rooms with fantastic gardens, and the quality of construction. An example of this quality is the cavernous roof space, where the attention to detail in the construction is apparent. The current owners have retained much of the charm and character of the property, enhanced by many original Crittall leaded windows many with the original Vita glass.
Special attention should be given to the magnificent garden which has been the pride and joy of the current owners, the rear of the property benefits from a magnificent wisteria, probably as old as the house itself, whilst to the side of the property is a sunken garden, which was part of the original design.
The property is situated within a Conservation Area in this well established and renowned area of the city and lies within an easy level walk of Clifton Green where there is an excellent variety of local shops and in nearby Bootham there are various private schools to include Bootham School, St Peter’s and its junior school, St Olaves. The York outer ring road lies approximately a mile away to the north thereby making the property readily accessible to a number of centres in the area.
Although it is difficult to pin point exactly why, I have no hesitation in saying that this is probably the best all round family house of its type available, giving a rare opportunity for the next generation to make No.15 their family home.
