The Green, Elvington, York

Occupying an elevated and prominent position on the village green, this stunning period home boasts immaculate and generous accommodation.

This Grade II listed property has retained a wealth of character and features and has been sympathetically updated and remodelled, now presenting as a practical and beautifully appointed family home.

The four-bedroom house offers spacious and sociable living accommodation with the addition of a cellar. A grand entrance leads to the principal reception rooms including the charming lounge and formal dining room. The lounge features a cast iron fireplace, newly built bespoke cabinet in the recess and plentiful space for seating. Directly beyond the lounge is a snug, a versatile space which could be used as a second sitting room, children’s playroom or as a study/office as many of us become increasingly accustomed to home working. The snug leads onto a further light and airy sun-room with French doors onto the garden.

The formal dining room has exposed beams and feature exposed brick wall with fireplace. Off both the snug and the dining room are doors into an inner / rear hallway which also leads to the kitchen. The country style shaker kitchen offers generous proportioned space and a series of matching wall and base units with cooker set within an exposed brick inglenook. Further provisions for a washing machine / dryer are found in a utility/WC also accessed off the same hallway where there is also a large pantry cupboard off which are the stairs to the cellar.

Stairs from the entrance hallway lead to a split landing with the two largest bedrooms at the front of the house overlooking The Green. Almost equal in size, both bedrooms are substantial rooms with the Master benefitting from an additional dressing area and newly fitted en-suite shower room. Two further double bedrooms are accessed off the rear landing in addition to a family bathroom.

Externally the driveway has been recently laid in gravel-bonded resin, offering parking for multiple vehicles, leading to a detached brick built, pitch roofed, double garage with electric doors. The fully enclosed walled garden offers a private position with a lawn and mature borders of trees and shrubs. There is a patio seating area, ideal for al-fresco dining, enjoying the sun into the afternoon and evening due to the south-westerly aspect.

In summary, a charming period home, immaculately presented in a sought-after village.



The property is situated on the village green in the popular village of Elvington, boasting many amenities and including a village shop, a village hall, a church, a hairdresser, a sports & social club, a public house, a primary school and a doctor’s surgery. The village lies within an easy commute approximately 7 miles from York and falls within the catchment for Fulford Secondary School which has an outstanding reputation.



Leaving York at the Grimston Bar roundabout, take the 3rd exit and stay on Hull Rd/A1079. Continue straight onto Elvington Lane/B1228 and follow for approximately 5 miles into the village of Elvington. Continue into the village along Main Street and turn right just before the village green where the parking is situated at the rear of the house.
