A QUITE SUPERBLY APPOINTED AND DECEPTIVELY SPACIOUS FAMILY HOUSE WITH LANDSCAPED GARDEN IN A QUIET POSITION CLOSE TO THE UNIVERSITY ON THE EDGE OF THIS POPULAR CONSERVATION VILLAGE
Heslington Court lies towards the end of School Lane on the eastern edge of Heslington, itself a pretty and popular village on the southern outskirts of York which is well situated for easy access to the City Centre as well as to the main A64 Leeds-York trunk road.
Notably, Heslington supports the campus of the University of York and has a good local services to include banks, a post office, two public houses and shop and lies on a regular bus route to and from the City Centre. It is within the catchment area of both the highly regarded Fulford and Archbishop Holgates Secondary Schools and The Lord Deramore Primary School lies adjacent in School Lane.
Dating originally from the mid 1980s the property was significantly extended and improved in 2012 with works including electrical rewiring, installation of underfloor central heating and the provision of new bathroom suites, double glazed windows and engineered Oak floors to the entire ground floor. The property now offers extensive high quality modern living accommodation of quality and style with the signature feature being the superb Neptune Dining Kitchen extension to the rear elevation. This forms the centrepiece of the ground floor accommodation and is centred upon an Oak Island Unit with 1½ bowl sink unit with contemporary mixer tap, extensive cupboards and drawers beneath, glass fronted china cupboards above, integrated dishwasher and wine rack. Adjacent are a 5-ring gas NEFF hob with BOSCH extractor hood over, NEFF fan oven and separate Microwave and MAYTAG American style fridge-freezer flanked by built in larder cupboards. Oak framed bi-folding doors to two elevations open to the garden adding considerably to the appeal and flexibility of use of this fine room. The Sitting Room is of elegant proportions and extends across the full depth of the property with a gas fired stove whilst rear bi-folding doors open to an area of decking. The House Bathroom and both ensuite shower rooms are well appointed with tiled walls and floors whilst the shower room to Bedroom 2 has the notable feature of a steam cabin.
A superb landscaped garden adjoins the rear of the house and is unusually generous for a property of this nature. It is centred upon a circular area of lawn from which an arbour surmounted by decorative Plum, Pear and Apple leads to an inner area of circular decking making for a quite superb summer seating and al fresco dining area. The garden is imaginatively planted with a wide variety of trees, plants and shrubs and of particular note is a high belt of pleached Laurel. There is a plethora of interesting and unusual specimens to include Acer Crimson King, Twisted Hazel, Sorbus, Hydrangea, Cherry, Ginko, Sambucus, Eucalyptus, Camellia, Judas Tree and Curry Willow. The whole does indeed form the most perfect setting for this splendid property.
