Burton Stone Lane lies perpendicular to Bootham, the ancient route into York which passes through Bootham Bar, one of the original Roman gateways into the city. Bootham is considered by some to be one of the most attractive streets in York being tree-lined and with an open aspect. No. 33 is a particularly charming 18th century double fronted house set behind a low brick wall with wrought iron railing and box hedging. Constructed in the 1840s and bearing all the hallmarks of that era with high ceilings and fine proportions, it has been restored to its former glory and now offers stylish family accommodation of more than 3000 sq ft. In addition there is a self-contained office at the end of the rear garden.

To the rear is a delightful, landscaped rear garden which is walled and well screened with mature planting. A stone flagged path leads from the terrace to the brick-built detached office at the far end of the garden, with its green ‘living’ roof. There is a store room attached to the office and further outbuildings on the western elevation of the house. Two al fresco/seating areas are orientated to enjoy maximum sunshine, and the parking spaces lie behind the property.

Burton Stone Lane is ideally located for quick and easy access to the bustling city centre along the Georgian thoroughfare of Bootham. A Sainsbury’s Local and Spa conveniently lie a few minutes’ walk away, as do two independent schools, St Peter’s School and Bootham. The railway station can be reached easily on foot, with London Kings Cross a tantalising 2 hours by train.
