A piece of York history

Prev Next

A stunning and sympathetically upgraded Grade II listed Georgian townhouse situated in arguably one of the finest locations in York city centre with views out towards the River Ouse.

The property is steeped in history, having originally been built in 1830 on an old orchard occupied by The Grey Friars. The property takes its name from the orchard known as Stampers Garden and now forms a beautiful Georgian home in a row of equally attractive houses.  A later addition was added at the rear in 1850 which is thought to have been used as a school room by the church.

Bought by the present owner in 2001, Stampers House has since undergone an extensive yet sympathetic program of works to include a new roof in 2012, new central heating and redecoration throughout and upgraded electrical installation.  Additionally, the exterior of the property has been re-pointed in lime-based mortar.

Access to the front is via a charming walkway leading to a mature front garden perfect for enjoying the afternoon sun. Internally, the property has retained a wealth of original period features and opens to a sitting room with Yorkshire sliding sash window and period fireplace. An inner hall provides stairs to the first floor and access to the dining room with fireplace and fitted cupboards.

The fully fitted kitchen boasts a range of modern fitted units and appliances with a garden room extension to the side and further access to a wc/cloakroom and separate utility room.  Access to a small rear courtyard via French doors lead from the garden room.

On the first floor at the rear is the master bedroom with dual aspect windows and an en suite shower room. The guest bedroom to the front of the property boasts superb views over the park. There is a large spacious bathroom and a period staircase up to an original attic bedroom.

In summary, this is a great opportunity to acquire an excellent example of a period home which has been meticulously maintained by the current owner. For further details, click the link here
