AN ELEGANTLY PROPORTIONED AND VERSATILE LISTED TOWN HOUSE WITH A GOOD GARDEN AND PRIVATE PARKING IN ONE OF YORKS MOST DESIRABLE RESIDENTIAL AREAS
Listed Grade II, 73 The Mount is an impressive Regency town house situated in the very heart of The Mount, itself the main south westerly approach to the city centre and lying close to the large public open space of the Knavesmire and the renowned York racecourse. The main line railway station is within easy walking distance and from where there are regular services to London (Kings Cross), Newcastle and Edinburgh as well as to Leeds and Harrogate.
Dating from around 1830, the property is constructed of attractive mellow brick elevations under a slate roof with an impressive entrance doorcase, sash windows with dressed stone sills and brick-on-end lintels. Internally, many period features remain to include high ceilings, moulded plasterwork cornices, period fireplaces, ceiling roses and door architraves whilst the propertys signature feature is perhaps the impressive sweeping staircase which links all three principal storeys and makes for a great feeling of light and spaciousness to the centre of the property.
From the front door, a short Entrance Hall widens into an impressive stone flagged Staircase Hall off which are approached a good sized Sitting Room and also the impressive Kitchen/Breakfast Room complete with Oak floor, recessed ceiling lights, polished granite worksurfaces, painted cupboards and within a former chimney breast is a void currently housing a SMEG 5-ring gas hob and oven. To the rear elevation is a wide canted bay window offering a pleasant view over the terrace and the garden beyond. To the first floor is an elegant and well proportioned Drawing Room with two sash windows to the front elevation, Pine floor and marble fireplace making for a most wonderful principal reception room of great character and charm being ideal for entertaining in all scales. On this floor too is the Master Bedroom with ensuite Dressing Room and on the two upper floors are the remaining bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The lower ground floor accommodation is generous in size and is currently given over to a Sitting Room, Bedroom, Kitchen area and WC with access also to the cellar. It could readily be converted for use for self-contained living accommodation if required suitable for a student, dependant relative or for letting purposes generating a most useful income if required.
An ample garden lies to the rear of the house and is approached across a flagged terrace adjacent to which is a specimen Pear tree. Beyond is a good town garden bounded respectively by a brick wall and boarded fencing adjoining which are Lavendar, Clematis and Box. At the far end is a stone flagged and brick sett seating area centred around a large Laurel making for a most pleasant and sheltered summer seating and al fresco dining area. Behind adjoining trelliswork is a car parking area for three cars with access to Park Street.
