Lang Road, Bishopthorpe, York

An outstanding and rare opportunity to secure a substantial detached bungalow, prominently set in generous grounds, and enjoying a remarkable degree of privacy. Offered to the market with the convenience of vacant possession and no forward chain.

Approached via a sweeping carriage drive, this individual home extends to over 1500 sq ft of well-proportioned living accommodation, principally to the ground floor, with two further bedrooms and bathroom to the first floor. The first (and ground floor) both offer the potential for further development (subject to the relevant planning).

Internally, the accommodation offers the potential for further improvement and includes a generous entrance hallway with parquet flooring leading to a bright and airy lounge overlooking the rear garden.

The dining kitchen has a range of wood wall and base units with worktops over, with integrated appliances including an eye level oven/grill and space for washing machine and dishwasher. There are French doors off the dining area.

Furthermore to the ground floor is a large double bedroom with bay window, house bathroom, separate shower and stairs to the first floor accommodation.

To the first floor are two double bedrooms and a WC. Off bedroom two is a concealed cupboard providing access to further storage.

Externally to the rear is a lovely mature and private South facing garden, mainly laid to lawn with a large patio area. Fenced boundaries and mature shrubbery and trees flank the boundary. In addition is a detached garage with up and over door, power and light.

In summary, a charming and spacious individual property offering wonderful potential for further development.


11 Lang Road lies close to the heart of Bishopthorpe, itself a highly regarded village on the southern edge of York where there is a wide range of local facilities to include a variety of shops, public houses, doctor’s surgery, dentist’s surgery, a library, sports club, Church and a well regarded primary school. Notably, Bishopthorpe also lies on a frequent bus route. The village lies within the catchment area for well regarded secondary schooling and is also readily accessible to a number of independent schools in the city.

The property is also well situated for quick and easy access to the city centre and all of the facilities that lie therein to include the main line station from where there are regular services to London (King’s Cross) with trains running about every half an hour. Of particular interest is the fact that the renowned York Racecourse lies only a short distance away at the well known public open space of The Knavesmire. In addition, Bishopthorpe itself is home to Bishopthorpe Palace, the residence of the Archbishop of York.


Approaching Bishopthorpe from the north on Sim Balk Lane, take a right hand turning into Lang Road where the property is situated on the left hand side.
