AN EXTENSIVE PERIOD PROPERTY WITH AN ATTACHED GARAGE IN ONE OF YORKS MOST DESIRABLE LOCATIONS WITH NEARBY HISTORIC RIVERSIDE WALKS
Believed to date from the late 19th Century and constructed of attractive mellow brick elevations under a slate roof with a brick cill band and matching window arches and painted cills, Number 11 Holly Terrace is a first class example of many of the fine town houses built on the edge of the city centre in the latter part of the Victorian era. The Terrace occupies an elevated position and enjoys an uninterrupted view across the River Ouse and immediately adjoins the New Walk, the historic riverside walk which gives easy access to the city centre whilst just a short distance away lies the Millennium Bridge which leads to Rowntree Park and the renowned Bishopthorpe Road, home to a host of independent retail outlets. There are local shops in nearby Fishergate and the property is ideally located for access to the city centre, the A64 and the University of York and lies within the catchment area of the well regarded Fulford secondary school (Ofsted rated Outstanding).
Over the years the property has been upgraded and modernised and now offers elegant, high quality modern living accommodation whilst at the same time retaining many original features to include moulded plasterwork cornices, picture rails, panelled doors with architraves, period fireplaces, high ceilings and deep skirting boards.
An attractive doorcase with brick-on-end arch opens to an Entrance Lobby and thence beyond a glazed screen, to the Entrance Hall with an elegant staircase to the first floor. Arranged to the front elevation is a most attractive Sitting Room where a wide canted bay window affords an uninterrupted view over the front garden to the river beyond. Completing the picture is a fine marble fireplace with slate hearth and panelled double doors open to the Dining Room with a Pine boarded floor. To the rear of an Inner Hall with Cloakroom off, lies the Kitchen with door to the attached garage.
A fine staircase with turned hardwood handrail leads to a Half Landing with access to the House Bathroom with tiled walls and bath with Aqualisa showerhead over whilst adjacent are a separate WC and Bedroom 3. Off the principal Landing is a good second bedroom and to the front elevation is an elegant first floor Drawing Room with moulded plasterwork cornice, marble fireplace with coal-effect gas fire, display alcoves and built in bookcases. Twin sash windows offer wonderful river views from this fine principal reception room which could equally well be used as a large 4th Bedroom if required. To the second floor is a spacious Master Bedroom with large dormer window, period fireplace and an extensive range of Pine wardrobes. A door leads to an ensuite Shower Room with a return door to an L shaped Dressing/Studio Area with roof light.
To the front of the house is a pleasant west facing terraced garden from where one may enjoy uninterrupted views of the river. To the rear is a walled Courtyard with Winter Jasmine and Roses in small raised brick edged beds and to the rear is a pedestrian gate.
Of particular note is the single Garage with remote controlled electric roller door and vehicular access adjacent to Ambrose Street.
