A MOST CHARMING PERIOD PROPERTY WITH NEARBY HISTORIC RIVERSIDE WALKS IN ONE OF YORKS MOST DESIRABLE LOCATIONS
Believed to date from the early 20th Century and constructed of attractive brick elevations under a slate roof, 8 Lastingham Terrace is a first class example of many of the fine town houses built on the edge of the city centre at the time. Lastingham Terrace occupies an elevated position with superb views 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 and its pedestrian access to Rowntree Park. There are local shops in nearby Fishergate. The property is ideally located for access to the city centre, the A64 and the University of York.
Over the years, the property has been upgraded and improved with such features as boarded floors to the ground floor and double glazed windows virtually throughout 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, dado rails, architraves, panelled doors and period fireplaces (mostly decorative only). To the front of the house is an attractive brick doorcase housing a panelled front door with glass overlight and at first floor level is a brick string course whilst arranged to the front elevation is a good sized canted bay with matching brickwork. From the Entrance Lobby, a part glazed inner door opens to an Oak floored Entrance Hall leading to an elegant Sitting Room where a wide canted bay window offers a wonderful view over the front garden to the river beyond. Completing the picture of this fine reception room is a boarded floor, moulded plasterwork cornice, picture rail and functioning period fireplace with gas fire. Adjacent lies the Dining Room with boarded floor, moulded plasterwork cornice and period fireplace (decorative only) with built in bookcase to one side. The Kitchen lies beyond and has the benefit of an Oak floor, worksurfaces to two elevations with built in cupboards and drawers beneath, 4-ring gas hob and electric double oven all with contemporary style stainless steel extractor hood above. There is plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher and a particular feature is a very fine built in full height Pine dresser.
To the first floor the principal Bedroom is arranged to the front elevation from where there are splendid river views. There are two further principal bedrooms together with a House Bathroom and separate WC. To the second floor is a good sized fourth bedroom with a dormer to the rear and a good sized Velux roof light to the front elevation making for a light and spacious living space whilst adjacent is a Shower Room with tiled shower, WC and washbasin. Adjacent is a most useful area of eaves storage space.
To the front of the house is a quite superb terraced garden being principally flagged and interspersed with a variety of annuals and perennials to include Roses and Holly. It forms a wonderful west facing summer seating and al fresco dining area.
Of particular note is the single garage with access via an up-and-over door in the rear boundary wall.
