A SUBSTANTIAL AND IMPOSING PERIOD HOUSE WITH WALLED TOWN GARDEN AND NEARBY RIVERSIDE WALKS IN ONE OF YORKS MOST POPULAR STREETS
Running west from Fishergate, New Walk Terrace is considered to be one of Yorks most desirable streets and is a cul-de-sac leading to the river from where an historic riverside walk gives easy access to the city centre, whilst just a short distance away lies the Millennium Bridge which gives pedestrian access to Rowntree Park on the west side of the river. Fishergate itself boasts a diverse range of amenities and local shops and the property is ideally situated for easy access to the facilities of the city centre and also to the southern section of the outer ring road and the University of York.
Believed to date from around the middle of the 19th Century, 30 New Walk Terrace is a substantial property of attractive mellow brick elevations under a slate roof with first and second floor sill bands, brick on-end window arches with central keystones, sash windows and a wide canted bay window to the front elevation where there is an impressive doorcase with engaged pilasters and a modillioned cornice housing a four panelled front door with brass furniture and glass overlight. Internally, the property is a true delight with the layout and design being very representative of many of the fine terraced town houses built on the edge of the city centre just after the end of the Regency period. A particular feature is the elegant, well proportioned first floor Drawing Room which is a most light and spacious principal reception room of great character and ideal for entertaining on all scales. The property provides extensive living accommodation and retains very many original period features to include high ceilings, moulded plasterwork cornices, sash windows, period fireplaces, dado rails, pine floors and panelled doors with architraves.
Externally, the property is no less impressive with an attractive front garden lying behind a dwarf brick wall surmounted by coping stones and containing Laurel, Yew, Rose, Cherry and a variety of annuals. The walled rear garden is laid down to a lawn edged by mature borders containing a plethora of established plants and shrubs to include climbing Roses, Crab Apple, Ivy, Flowering Quince, Clematis, Roses, climbing Hydrangea, Cotoneaster and a Fig. The centrepiece is perhaps the substantial arbour arranged to the rear boundary which is surmounted by a magnificent ancient Wisteria beneath which is a flagged seating area forming a most wonderful sheltered summer seating and al fresco dining area. Next to a traditional garden store an adjacent gate gives pedestrian access to Sandringham Street.
