Property SummaryA delightfully thought-out and beautifully presented Grade 2 listed property which has recently undergone a comprehensive scheme of improvements to reveal well-appointed interiors throughout blending traditional architecture with modern design, with features including a well-equipped basement kitchen-diner, utility room and a partially-decked courtyard garden.
Close to shops, public transport links and good schools, this is a home which would suit either a small family or a professional couple with jobs locally or within the relatively simple commute to Leeds or York.
The property is located on a terrace of homes within a short walk of the centre of one of Yorkshires most picturesque and historic market towns, within easy reach of the towns public baths and just a short distance from King Jamess High School, rated good at its last inspection by Ofsted in 2017. St Johns Primary is a little further away but was also rated as good in 2016.
The towns main bus station is just over 300m away on foot offering connections to York, Harrogate and Boroughbridge while trains from Knaresborough station just over a 500m walk from the house - connect with the mainline terminals at both York and Leeds. The proximity of the A1 (M) and the A59 make travel by car relatively simple while, for those considering travel further afield, Leeds Bradford Airport is approximately 25 minutes away by car, connecting with Europes holiday resorts as well as offering flights to regional airports around the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands.
Town centre amenities include a post office, a Tesco Express and a Sainsburys Local, a good selection of independent shops, cafes and tea rooms and a number of pubs and restaurants. However, the famous viaduct, the ruins of the old castle and pleasant walks along the River Nidd are also all within easy reach.
The property fronts onto the street with a stone step leading up to the covered front door. However, a delightful, shared courtyard garden to the rear is accessed via the utility room and includes raised decking, timber-edged flower beds, a blue-painted timber storage shed accessed via wood-chip path and a head-high stone wall offering some privacy from the neighbouring street.
The front door opens onto the living room which successfully combines a cottage-style ambiance with some more modern touches of interior design. A hardwood floor is complemented by the brick-built fireplace and solid wood mantle, with a cast-iron wood-burner fitted beneath. The chimney breast is bracketed by a storage cupboard ideal as a TV stand to the right and a cushioned box seat to the left. Open stairs made from solid pine rise to the first floor while another set with white-painted bannisters and spindles lead down to the basement kitchen.
Here, an easy-to-clean, patterned, tile-effect vinyl floor matches the otherwise neutral décor. Soft-closing cupboard and drawer units have been fitted above and below solid wood worktops illuminated by under-unit down-lighters and overhead recessed LED spotlights. A modern four-ring induction hob and electric oven are fitted below an extractor while the design also incorporates an inbuilt, upright fridge-freezer, dishwasher and a stainless steel sink with chrome mixer tap located beneath the street-level window overlooking the front of the house.
An internal door from the living room also opens on the ground-floor utility room which overlooks the rear garden and is equipped with its own stainless steel sink, solid wood worktops and cupboard units chosen to match those found in the downstairs kitchen. There is space and plumbing for washing machine and dryer, as well as internal doors leading to the downstairs WC equipped with a hand basin and storage cupboard - and large integral storage cupboard ideal for household appliances.
On the first floor, one door from the landing opens onto the smaller of the two bedrooms - fitted with carpets and a wall-mounted radiator. The other leads to the smart, partially-tiled house bathroom, equipped with a panel bath with a square-edged shower head above and fitted with a bi-folding, glass-and-chrome splash screen. The room also incorporates a matching pedestal sink and second WC.
Stairs to the second floor rise the larger master bedroom, which is also carpeted, fitted with a wall-mounted radiator and some integral storage and offering access to the roof-space via a lift door in the ceiling.
The property is fitted with double glazing while warmth and hot water are provided by a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with a separate thermostat and with individual controls fitted to all radiators.
