A charming Grade II listed early 19th Century 3 bedroom cottage in an outstanding position overlooking the river within walking distance of York city centre.
DESCRIPTION Garden Cottage is an absolute delight which has many period features including delightful arched Gothic style windows to the South and West elevations.
The mid Georgian cottage is believed to have been built for Thomas Maude, an eminent tea dealer as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of High Ousegate. Other original features include cornicing to the ceilings and a bay window believed to have been brought from Maude’s shop.
The accommodation is arranged so that the main rooms take advantage of the wonderful views over the private garden and tree lined riverside walk.
Briefly comprising: to the ground floor; a panelled front door with glazed fanlight over leads to the entrance hall with elegant staircase and mahogany handrail, recess for coats and storage. Open plan living room with beautiful bay window to the front and Gothic window to the side, open fire to the dining area and electric fire to the sitting room. The kitchen benefits from a hand made oak units by ‘Shaw and Riley’ with granite worktops over and inset ceramic Villeroy and Bosch sink unit, intergrated Neff cooker with ‘slide and hide’ door, freestanding units housing fridge freezer and large butchers block with inset granite worktops, utility room with door to the rear courtyard and plumbing for washing machine.
To the first floor; is a wide galleried landing with attractive Gothic window to the side, a half landing leads to the separate w/c. To the front of the property is the master bedroom which enjoys amazing views through the bay window down the river and has lovely cornicing. There are two further double bedrooms and an inner landing with recently installed boiler. There is a refitted bathroom with modern suite comprising shower, low flush w.c and wash hand basin.
OUTSIDE The gardens are an exceptional feature of the property. To the rear is a walled area with flagged steps leading to a paved terrace and pedestrian door from the lane. The vendors have investigated the possibility of creating a parking space in this area. There is a useful timber shed, an archway of clematis leads to the main garden on three sides. There are lion heads from Bolton Abbey in the gorgeous garden. The current vendors have ploughed an enormous amount of time and effort in creating an amazing space which comprises lawn and seating areas which overlook the riverside and New Walk.
FLOOD RISK Please note that the house has flooded several times over the past few decades (ie 1982, 1995, 2000, 2012 and 2015). The ground floor was converted to a design which prevents significant flood damage, so the floors are solid, the walls are tiles and both have water resistant finishes, as well as this the property has two water pumps which are easy to operate and flood barriers that go over the ground floor windows and doors. The electrics are placed at a high level and the kitchen units are free standing and removable. This permits a straightforward cleaning exercise after flooding. For this reason, insurance against flood risk is available at normal rates. The guide price reflects the flood risk.

Dear Harriet, Mike and I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the brilliant job you and your team did in marketing and selling our house. We found using James, your in-house solicitor, so easy and convenient. We would recommend you and James without hesitation!Mrs H
My property had been on the market for over three years. Multiple estate agents had been used. Very few viewings had been arranged. I started to wonder what was wrong with the house, as all agents said how nice it was. I then engaged with Naish Estate Agency, who immediately pointed out a number of simple changes to make. Within days I’d had more viewings than there had been in the previous three years. Within 5 weeks of using Naish, we had an offer, close to the asking price, which was accepted. What a big relief. I can’t recommend Naish enough, especially if a sale is ‘stuck’.Mr S
Selling your home should be taken seriously. It can be tempting to go for the lowest agency fee, but will it be marketed properly and at the right price? I wanted an agent with local knowledge, a high-street presence and one that would conduct accompanied viewings. After meeting with Harriet it quickly became clear that she is very different to the usual agents focused purely on turnover. I was pleasantly surprised by her honesty, direct approach and efficient manner. This professionalism is mirrored by the rest of the team at Naish and is most refreshing in these days of poor customer service.
Given that the conveyancing can also be done in-house makes the whole process stress free and effortless. I would have no qualms in recommending Naish to others and will definitely use them again in the future.Mr M
I know I’ve said this in person to Amanda, but I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the excellent service you provided from the first call to arrange a valuation, all the way to completion. You all worked tirelessly and with great professionalism. Things did get a little stressful towards exchange and completion, not helped by last minute questions from solicitors, but we had a relatively straightforward moving in day and all went well.
Could you also please thank Amanda? She is an amazing asset to Naish. She is extremely organised, efficient and she provided great communication….on top of that, she kept our buyer appeased on many an occasion!
All in all, we wouldn’t hesitate to both recommended or use Naish in the future. I wish you all the very best, and thank you once again for all you did for us.
Kind regardsMr & Mrs H
I simply wanted to express my thanks to you and the team in bringing the sale to completion and the purchase to a satisfactory end.
All of you were truly professional, efficient, polite and patient!!!!!
Your co-ordination and attention to detail are to be admired.
The business model of all aspects under one roof is excellent.
Many thanks with good wishes for the future success and prosperity of the business.Mr A
We chose Naish to market our property because they offered a comprehensive service both selling and conveyancing.
Throughout the process they demonstrated a truly professional approach and the sale was completed with minimal fuss.
We would highly recommended Naish to anyone looking to sell their property in the York area.Mr & Mrs C
To James, Simone and all the team at Naish.
Thank you for looking after our property over the last six years and managing the sale of our little place.
All the best
We just want to say “thank you” so very much, to you, Tilly & Amanda, for all the hard work you put in to achieving a positive sales result for us.
Best wishes,Mr and Mrs K
