Property Summary

A stunning, extended home converted from a former newsagents’ store with clever internal design making the most of the considerable space available, which now includes an integral garage, an extensive modern kitchen, spacious lounge, study and utility.

Equal care has been taken with the exterior, while the property is conveniently located for public transport into the city centre, a sizable retail park retail and local schools.

Shipton Road is a predominantly residential street running parallel to the A19, which runs south into the city centre and north to Thirsk. However, only a matter of a couple of hundred metres from the Park-and-Ride service into the middle of York, the house is ideally located for commuting as well as for connections to the city’s East Coast mainline railway station, now just over two hours from London but also offering connections to other major UK cities including Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle and Glasgow.

Other amenities within easy reach of the property include The Mitre family pub, a Bannatyne Health and Fitness Centre and the Clifton Retail Park, which is home to a large Tesco Extra, a McDonald’s a bowling centre, a B&Q DIY store, a Curry’s and PC World, an Argos and a number of other well-known high street brands.

Clifton and Rawcliffe Primary School was rated “good” by Ofsted in 2013 and is located with 700m of the house. Manor Church of England Secondary School is the closest to Shipton Road. As it is now an academy, access to Ofsted reports is restricted but, at its last published inspection in 2007, the school was rated as “outstanding”.

Set a little back from the road, the exterior walls of the property have been painted white although the frontage is partially dressed with timber cladding, with grey window frames and doors. The front garden has been laid to gravel leading to an integral single garage and is enclosed by grey-painted timber fencing to three sides.

The neat and tidy rear garden has been laid mostly to lawn and is also enclosed by head-high timber fence panels, some supporting established climbing plants. Some raised flower beds offer options to a new owner with green fingers, there are some established trees offering shade while other features include a neat, stone-flagged patio adjacent to bi-folding doors which open onto the kitchen/diner, an outside tap, a storage shed, and exterior lighting.

The front door opens onto a porch ideal for storing outdoor hats and coats with a separate internal door opening directly onto the open-plan living space, including the extensive lounge and impressive kitchen/diner – both offering access to the delightful rear garden.

The lounge has been fitted with solid wood floors, some integral shelving and both fixtures and fittings and dedicated wall space for a large, flat-screen TV. Windows overlooking the front of the house and the patio doors to the rear let in plenty of light but additional illumination after dark is provided by recessed ceiling-mounted LED spotlights. Stairs to the rear of the room rise to the first floor although another internal door opens onto a dedicated study beneath the stairwell.

Although the lounge is impressive, perhaps the property’s outstanding feature is the spacious, bright and airy kitchen/diner - converted from what used to be the newsagents’ storeroom. The bi-folding doors along one wall allow plenty of light to flood the room and add to the considerable sense of space. However, even more light comes from three-quarter-length windows overlooking the rear garden – supplemented after dark by more overhead LED spotlights. The floor is also hardwood while the cooking and preparation space is remarkably well-equipped, including an induction hob with overhead extractor fitted with a separate island which doubles as a breakfast bar. The house chef can also enjoy the benefits of twin, eye-level electric ovens, space for a large American-style fridge/freezer, and a double-bowled composite sink with chrome mixer tap. Warmth in winter is provided by a vertical, wall-mounted radiators while soft-closing, dark-coloured base and wall units offer plenty of storage.
An internal door from the kitchen also leads to the downstairs loo and separate utility room - the latter equipped with the necessary space and plumbing for a separate washing machine and tumble drier, some integral shelving and storage. A door also opens from the utility room directly onto the integral single garage.

The stairs from the living room rise to the landing where internal doors lead to the four double bedrooms and the house bathroom. The carpeted master bedroom includes a wall-mounted radiator and en suite with a hardwood floor and fitted with a shower; WC with dual flush; a hand basin; and a heated, ladder-style towel rail in chrome. The second bedroom includes some integral storage although all the remaining bedrooms are tastefully decorated in soft colours and also include carpets and wall-mounted radiators with wood surrounds.

The house bathroom is tiled throughout and equipped with a hand basin fitted with a storage unit below an illuminated mirror. A free-standing bath is located beneath a chrome spout with mixer tap although the room also includes a separate shower cubicle and a low-level WC with dual flush.
