About this property
A beautiful detached house with granny annexe, set in lovely enclosed gardens with parking for several cars located in the attractive hamlet of Middlethorpe adjacent to York Racecourse and less than 2 miles from York Railway Station.
DESCRIPTION The charming period property has been extended and updated to a high standard in recent years into a perfect family home. It retains many original features and the cosy character of a cottage and yet is deceptively spacious.
Well appointed to a high standard there are 3 bedrooms with 2 en suite and a large family bathroom with double ended bath and walk in shower finished in travertine tiling and underfloor heating. In addition the annexe has the flexible option to be included or used separately with its own entrance, kitchen and bathroom and living room, ideal for granny/nanny/teenager or home office.
The house kitchen and diner has a high pitched ceiling with velux windows and French doors on to the terrace and glorious garden. The stunning kitchen is fitted with modern units with beautiful solid granite worktops over and a vast array of integrated appliances including American fridge, range cooker, steam cooker, microwave, coffee machine and instant boil/filtered water tap.
The dining area leads through double doors to the lovely oak framed sun room with bi-fold doors on to the gardens whilst sliding glass doors open into the lounge with stone fireplace and living flame gas fire. Inner hall with cloakroom/w.c. and large utility room with commercial washing machine and deep sink. A door from the hall leads to the annexe accommodation. Large integral garage with electric up/over garage door.
Bordered by a tall beech hedge the mature private gardens extend beyond a parking area where permission has been approved for a timber carriage house if desired.
LOCATION Middlethorpe is a small collection of prestigious properties within a hamlet, situated 0.5 miles from the popular village of Bishopthorpe, which has a variety of excellent amenities, including 3 pubs, butchers, chemists, florists, doctors, dentists, fish and chip shop and a library. There are also good infant and junior schools in Bishopthorpe. Closer to home is the excellent and historic Middlethorpe Hall hotel and restaurant for the occasional treat, but it does also offer health club, spa and pool membership to the public.
DIRECTIONS Heading out of York on Bishopthorpe Road, you will pass The Chocolate Works site followed by the allotments and racecourse on the right, then take the first turning on the left in front of Middlethorpe Hall, and the property is 150 metres or so on the right hand side down a drive.
