AN IMPECCABLY RESTORED AND TASTEFULLY DECORATED PERIOD HOUSE WITH OFF-STREET PARKING IN ONE OF YORKS MOST DESIRABLE LOCATIONS WITH NEARBY HISTORIC RIVERSIDE WALKS
Constructed of attractive brick elevations under a slate roof with a brick sill band and matching window arches and painted sills, Number 8 Holly Terrace is a first class example of a late Victorian York town house. The terrace occupies an elevated position and enjoys an uninterrupted view across the River Ouse and stands above 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. There is easy access to the A64 and the University of York and the property lies within the catchment area of the well regarded Fulford secondary school (Ofsted rated Outstanding).
In recent years the property has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of restoration and upgrading and now offers extremely well appointed and elegant high quality modern living accommodation of quite some quality and style whilst at the same time retaining many original period features to include moulded plasterwork cornices, picture rails, dado rails, panelled doors with architraves, period fireplaces, high ceilings and sash windows. The period accommodation has been enhanced and complemented by a number of contemporary design features such as wooden style floors thoughout the ground floor, a wide arch linking the two principal reception rooms, a generous side extension forming a quite superb fitted Kitchen/Breakfast Room and a host of high quality contemporary fittings to the Bathroom and Shower Room.
An attractive doorcase opens to the Entrance Hall which leads to a fine Sitting Room arranged to the front elevation with a wide canted bay window offering a wonderful open aspect over the front garden to the river beyond. This room comes complete with a high ceiling, moulded plasterwork cornice, central ceiling rose and marble fireplace all making for a most light and spacious principal reception room of great character and ideal for entertaining on all scales. To the rear, a wide arch opens to a conveniently situated Dining Room which links also with a quite superb fitted Kitchen/Breakfast Room. Here is a polished granite worksurface with cupboards and drawers beneath and wall cupboards above, an electric Rangemaster Stove with 5-ring gas hob and Smeg extractor hood above. A large Island Unit with matching granite worksurface forms a useful Breakfast Bar and also houses an integrated dishwasher and single drainer sink unit with mixer tap and waste disposal unit whilst recessed ceiling lights and a Velux roof light make for a great feeling of spaciousness to this part of the house and a glazed door leads to the rear courtyard. Immediately adjoining is a Utility Room and Cloakroom.
The first floor is approached up a fine staircase with turned hardwood handrail and shaped balusters leading to a half-landing leading to Bedroom 3 and adjacent is the House Bathroom with a high quality bathroom suite and tiled shower cubicle with glazed screen. Arranged to the main body of the house are two further first floor bedrooms. To the second floor are two further bedrooms and a Shower Room with contemporary suite.
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 stone sett paving which provides valuable off-street parking with electric roller door to the rear elevation.
