Further Details

No. 44 was built to impress with a continuous sill band to the first floor windows, bracketed pediments, a heavy moulded cornice and impressive entrance with panelled front door. Many of the internal features remain in place: there are deep skirtings, fireplaces including cast iron bedroom fireplaces, elegant cornicing, original sash windows, window shutters, fitted cupboards, an original staircase with a polished handrail, flagstones under the flooring in the hallway, some fine panelled doors with brass fittings, servants’ cottage doors with locks dating from 1847, and a traditional cast-iron range.

On the ground floor is the kitchen breakfast room with a superb view across the walled garden. The kitchen has fitted units, a Range cooker and ample space for a family-sized table. To the front is the formal dining room with original picture rail, a floor-to-ceiling window with the original wooden shutters and a fireplace (gas capped off). On the first floor the impressive drawing room spans the width of the house and has a 13ft ceiling height, a pair of magnificent, floor-to-ceiling 12-pane sash windows and a fireplace. Stone steps lead down to the basement area which has a damp course with dry-lined walls, natural light through two windows and independent access to the garden. Both living rooms have good ceiling heights, the back room being a former kitchen with an old range, and a useful utility/laundry room alongside. Off the staircase landing is a coal store.

The three upper floors provide versatile bedroom/living accommodation currently arranged as five bedrooms, two bathrooms and an appealing study area on the third floor with Yorkshire sliding sash windows overlooking the garden. The top floor bedrooms have good ceiling heights and rise into the roof space. Being the tallest building on Heworth Green, No. 44 enjoys a fine outlook on both sides including the views south over rooftops, stretching north west across the city and east to the high Wolds.


The house is set back from Heworth Green behind a low brick wall and cast iron railings. Behind is a well-kept, low maintenance garden with shrubs and a weeping cherry adding privacy and screening. To the rear is a splendid walled garden with a southerly orientation; here are mature trees, shrubs and roses, sculpted box hedging, a pond, timber decking area and York stone terrace. At the far boundary is a useful store/passageway and secure, double garage, with up-and-over doors, an electric supply and natural light. Both open onto a back lane with shared access/maintenance, reached from Mill Lane.


Heworth Green runs north east from Monkgate, one of the main historic approaches into the city. No. 44 is particularly convenient for access to the city centre and railway station (regular service to London Kings Cross in under two hours, Edinburgh and Manchester) both on foot and by car. Heworth Green itself forms part of the wider Conservation Area, is broad and tree-lined with substantial nineteenth properties on the south side. It runs parallel to Heworth village’s East Parade with its local shops and services including a greengrocer, deli with coffee shop, post office, chemist, convenience store, thriving tennis club and a municipal park. Several supermarkets, including Waitrose, lie within a three-quarter mile radius. Heworth Green is well positioned for vehicular access to the A64, the motorway network and Leeds.
