A charming period townhouse in Bishophill, one of York’s most sought-after locations, within the Historic Core Conservation Area. Larger than many houses in the neighbourhood, the property has been carefully restored and is beautifully presented throughout.

Facing the ancient bar walls, the location provides quick access to the railway station and all the amenities the city has to offer, including the nearby highly-regarded Bishopthorpe Road shops, bars and restaurants. With access to the property on a no through road, the location is remarkably peaceful, given its central position.

Internally the ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall with mosaic tiled floor leading to the impressive open plan double reception room. This light and airy space is perfect for entertaining with two traditional fireplaces and access to the courtyard.

Beyond the dining room is the kitchen, fitted with a range of quality contemporary wall and base units with integrated appliances including an oven, hob with filter hood, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer in addition to a useful breakfast bar. A cloakroom with WC, hand basin, washing machine and the central heating boiler, completes the ground floor accommodation.

Stairs from the entrance hall lead to the first floor landing and two double bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom offers built in wardrobes either side of the original fireplace, and has remarkable views of the city walls. The second bedroom is to the rear of the property and also features a fireplace adding character and charm. Off the airy landing is an attractive shower room with large walk-in shower, wash basin set in a granite top, WC and underfloor heating.

To the rear is a completely private, easy to maintain, courtyard garden accessed from both the kitchen and dining room. Residents’ permit parking is available to the front of the property and surrounding area.

In summary, a tastefully renovated and upgraded property, which has retained an abundance of charm with the benefits of modern convenience, choicely situated in a wonderful tranquil setting facing south directly to the grassed banks of the medieval walls, with an avenue of cherry trees. Offered with the convenience of vacant possession and no forward chain.

Agents Note

The property has operated as a successful holiday let for 5 years. It is currently on Business Rates, but was formerly in Council Tax Band C.

 

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.

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.

 

Mr M Peacock

We consider Lancaster Samms the gold standard

Having worked with a number of estate agents over the years, we consider Lancaster Samms the gold standard. We bought a house with Elkie, who was extraordinarily dedicated, efficient and reliable throughout.

 

We had an extremely difficult sale on our side and the chain was in danger of collapse more than once, but it was Elkie’s care and attention that held everything together for us and for her clients.

We are eternally grateful and would never go anywhere else now!
