Extra Details

The Lodge is a stylishly and practically designed house with superb features including cast iron column radiators on the ground floor, louvered tier on tier shutters in most rooms, traditional panelled doors, good ceiling heights on both floors and ample storage options.

The Kutchenhaus kitchen was fitted in 2018. The island has an induction hob and breakfast bar as well as a superb array of integrated appliances including a microwave oven and larder fridge freezer. Bifold doors open west on to the flagged terrace. The separate dining room has engineered wide oak flooring that runs through to the 29 ft sitting room. Both rooms look south over the green with Little Knavesmire beyond and the sitting room connects to the lovely west facing garden via a pair of French doors.

Upstairs the magnificent principal bedroom suite is double height with a vaulted roof and roof trusses on display; alongside is a large en suite shower room and separate dressing room. Two further double bedrooms and a house bathroom are arranged around the central landing.


The Lodge is set back from Tadcaster Road along a shared drive that gives access to the private garage. Timber gates open to the secure, private parking space. It is understood that there is a third space available alongside the boundary as part of the communal parking overflow. The garden itself lies to the front of the house enjoying west facing sunshine. It is part walled and beautifully landscaped with ample lawn, gravelled paths and seating areas, a flagged terrace and brick-built pizza oven. Bordering the mellow wall are climbers such as clematis, rose and hydrangea petiolaris with standard viburnum tinis and clipped box hedging running along the boundary fence.


The Lodge lies half a mile from Micklegate Bar and the city walls, ideally located for easy access on foot to York city centre and the railway station with its regular mainline service to London Kings Cross. Adjacent to the house lie the wide open public access spaces of York Racecourse and Hob Moor/The Knavesmire with its cycle network. Two miles to the south is the A64 giving access to Leeds and connecting to the A1M and M62. There are excellent state and private schooling options at close quarter, and a good bus service runs along Tadcaster Road.
