Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold or leasehold property with Blenkin & Co

Stylish contemporary town house with walled garden and private parking, in central York.

This eye-catching brick and stucco fronted house sits within an exclusive Mews development in the heart of historic Marygate, probably the city’s most sought after residential district. Part of a smart gated development first designed in 2005, No. 8 enjoys a secure environment within a few hundred metres of the City walls and Minster. The original architect continues to own a property within the development, perhaps a testament to its enduring success and popularity.

8 Summerhouse Mews is a building of modern design both inside and out, highly insulated with superior fixtures and fittings, and underfloor heating within the open plan living area on the ground floor. All of the rooms have been stylishly decorated using Farrow & Ball paint.

The 24 ft kitchen breakfast room is part of a large living space that connects to the sitting room and sunny courtyard garden. The recently fitted contemporary kitchen includes a Pyrotechnic cooker, combi oven and microwave, Bora Induction hob with outdoor vent, and Quooker tap. There is a ground floor wc, and useful understairs cupboard as well as an airing cupboard on the second floor.

This is a light and bright town house with generous-sized windows and views from the upper floors towards historic St Olave’s Church within the medieval Abbey walls, and to the celebrated Victorian architecture of York Railway Station. The bathrooms and bedrooms are all well-proportioned with good ceiling heights and ample natural light.

Outside - The house faces its attractive walled courtyard garden, which is beautifully designed and low maintenance with artificial grass, raised beds, sculptural planting and exotic succulents as well as a circular terrace making an ideal space for al fresco dining. There are outdoor electric points, new garden lights, and a storage cupboard. In addition there is a lawned and landscaped communal garden on the eastern boundary of this small development. Within the paved forecourt is a private, allocated parking space with electric charger; this is set behind secure, double electric gates as well as a secure single pedestrian gate.

Environs - Summerhouse Mews occupies a discreet position off Marygate immediately south of Bootham, the northern thoroughfare into the city. Marygate is an historic street that slopes southwards towards the river Ouse with a Michelin starred restaurant, Roots, at its farthest point. The principal shopping streets of York are a mere few minutes’ stroll through the Museum Gardens past the medieval ruins of St Mary’s Abbey. Two independent schools lie on Bootham and the railway station - offering a mainline service to London in less than 2 hours - is no more than a pleasant five minute walk across Scarborough Footbridge.
