A FINE DETACHED HOUSE OCCUPYING A GOOD CORNER PLOT WITH GENEROUS ESTABLISHED GARDENS IN THIS MOST ACCESSIBLE WELL-SERVED VILLAGE
Gorse Lodge lies in an extremely convenient location in the well served and accessible village of Strensall. Local amenities include a supermarket, a number of public houses, shops, doctor s surgery, a dentist and a village primary school which feeds the well regarded Huntington Secondary school. There is a frequent bus service to York. Strensall Common lies close by and York Golf Club is only a short distance away. The northern section of the York Outer Ring Road lies just 3 miles away to the south and gives access to the Clifton Moor Retail Park and the Monks Cross Shopping Centre which includes the new Vangarde Shopping Park, home to the major outlets of John Lewis, Marks and Spencer and Next.
Constructed of brick elevations under a tiled roof, Gorse Lodge is an attractive detached property lying at the head of Oak Tree Close and occupying a good corner plot in this most accessible of locations. The approach to Oak Tree Close itself is set well back from the main road and for the most part lies behind a broad grass stray where there are a number of mature trees and shrubs affording a good deal of privacy and shelter to the property.
Gorse Lodge has the benefit of twin entrances linked by a semi-circular tarmacadam driveway adjoining which is a perimeter belt of Cypress with an adjoining bed containing a number of established shrubs. To the northern side is a detached Garage with up-and-over door and a parking area to the front. Immediately adjacent, a wrought iron gate leads to a rear terrace and thence to the garden. To the front of the house is a Porch with pitched tiled roof and from where a panelled front door with glass side lights opens to the Entrance Hall with staircase, wall light points and understairs cupboard. The Sitting Room extends across the full depth of the property and has windows to three elevations making for a light and spacious principal reception room of generous proportions. To almost the entirety of one elevation is a stone fireplace (decorative only). Glazed double doors open to the Dining Room which has double glazed sliding patio doors to the rear terrace and the garden. There is a hatch to the Kitchen which has worksurfaces to three elevations, a double drainer stainless steel sink unit and an electric cooker point. There is also a Potterton gas fired central heating boiler and shelved store cupboard. Off the Entrance Hall is a Cloakroom/Study leading to a separate WC.
To the first floor is a generous Landing with hatch access to the roof space. The principal bedroom has secondary glazing and is arranged to the rear of the house and lies adjacent to the House Bathroom where there is a bath, washbasin and shower cubicle. The remaining 3 bedrooms have built in wardrobes and indeed, those in the fourth bedroom extend across one entire elevation and it is submitted that this could form a most useful Dressing Room if required.
Externally, the gardens lie principally to the rear of the property and are unusually extensive for a property of this nature. They are bounded on their south side by a belt of Cypress and a Holly providing protection and privacy. Opposite, and forming the northern boundary is a deep border containing various plants and shrubs to include Portugal Laurel, Holly, Photinia and Cypress whilst the rear boundary is delineated by a high clipped Beech hedge to the front of which is a timber built summer house.
