  • Beautiful mid terrace Victorian cottage, lovingly renovated retaining original features with an open-fire to snuggle up in front of on those chillier evenings

  • The perfect city break retreat with shops, cafes, eateries, parks and gardens within easy walking distance
Property code: 51740

Stylish cottage situated in a perfect position for exploring all the culture that York offers. It retains original features and is furnished with eye catching fabrics and trendy up-cycled furniture.

This delightful, mid-terrace house, within a mile of the historic walls of York city centre, is the perfect location for families/friends looking for history, culture, shops and restaurants on their doorstep. And when you’ve had enough of the hustle and bustle of city life, you can escape with your canine companions to explore the natural beauty of the surrounding North Yorkshire countryside.

Like York itself, this property is a mixture of old and new; with a delightful blend of traditional features and contemporary flashes of colourful fabrics and stylish furniture. Stepping inside, you will find yourself in the light and spacious lounge/diner with its open fire to snuggle up in front of and a table for four. The dining space leads through into the bright, galley-style kitchen or out into the enclosed courtyard garden with its outdoor seating. The shower room and WC is accessed through the kitchen. Up the steep, winding staircase, you will find the double bedroom and en-suite WC, whilst the twin bedroom is up a further narrow staircase in the converted loft space with its slanted ceilings.

There is plenty to do in York itself, with over 30 museums to visit, including the National Railway Museum and the York Castle Museum. Or why not explore York’s Viking past with a visit to the Jorvik Viking Centre. There is also the magnificent cathedral York Minster that shouldn’t be missed. To keep Fido happy, be sure to head to the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park, where you’ll find Kirkham Abbey ruins in the beautiful Derwent Valley (15.5 miles) and the spectacular palace of Castle Howard (17.5 miles), where dogs are welcome.
