A stunning period home, thoughtfully remodelled and extended to a high specification, including a remarkable dining kitchen space. Built in 1939 of attractive brick under a pantile roof, the property also boasts an exceptional rear garden and is choicely located close to the city.

The centrepiece of the house is the large open plan extension to the rear elevation which incorporates a kitchen/dining/family room, with the garden beyond framed by full height sliding doors. The high specification argon filled doors are wall to wall and floor to ceiling for maximum effect, complemented by dual lanterns above.  

The kitchen features contemporary wall and base units with island, complemented by quartz work surfaces and a full range of quality appliances. A reclaimed parquet floor from a local school reflects the light perfectly and continues throughout this sociable area which includes a generous seating area with log burning stove.

Off the kitchen is a useful and fully fitted utility room with provision for washer dyer. In addition is access to the garage and rear garden.

To the first floor are two large double bedrooms both with handmade fitted wardrobes and reclaimed fireplaces.

Lancaster Samms are by far the best Estate Agents I have ever worked with

Neil really went the extra mile in getting my mum’s house on the market and then getting it sold.

Neil was knowledgeable, reassuring, hard-working, and incredibly thoughtful to both us and the buyers. I cannot recommend his services highly enough.

Elkie was absolutely brilliant from start to finish

I recently bought a house through Lancaster Samms.  My estate agent was Elkie. She was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. An absolute joy to deal with, so much so I would now consider her a friend.  She was so professional keeping me in the loop of a very long probate sale.

Over the course of many months, Elkie met me at the house several times so that I could organise the future renovation work. She was always happy to help.
House buying can be overwhelming sometimes however Elkie always made me feel calm and she was a pleasure to work with.

I am now the owner of the house that I fell in love with on day one. I couldn’t be happier!

Amazing and professional service from start to finish at a hard time for our family

Just sold my late mums bungalow with Elkie from Lancaster Samms.

Amazing and professional service from start to finish at a hard time for our family. Would 100% recommend using them .
Thank you once again Elkie for going over and beyond to make the selling process stress free.

Mrs V Clint

We felt like we were Elkie's only customers

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Elkie at Lancaster Samms for the highest standard of customer service she provided during our sale.

We had the smoothest, no stress sale you could possibly have wanted, couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Elkie lead us through the whole process from beginning to end with ease.  She was always contactable, never left us hanging and kept us updated throughout, no matter how small the detail.  She answered all our questions, no matter how trivial.

We highly recommend Elkie and Lancaster Samms as the Estate Agents to go to.

Vendor

Lancaster Samms are pure gold.

A good estate agent is like gold dust – rare, hard to find but extremely valuable.

Lancaster Samms are pure gold. Professional, timely, proactive, trustworthy and a million miles apart from your ‘typical’ estate agents. I would absolutely use them again. Special mention to Elkie, our closer, who is the Ray Donovan of the York real estate community i.e. a professional fixer. I imagine a significant number of conveyancing transactions have completed only because of her expertise in helping sellers (and buyers) navigate an often frustrating process.
