The fixtures and fittings are high specification and emphatically luxurious; there is underfloor heating in all of the bathrooms and throughout the ground floor, state-of-the-art digital smart lighting, the sash windows are handmade and double glazed, and the hallway with bespoke oak staircase is flooded by natural light through a large, lantern window. At the rear the magnificent 40ft kitchen/dining/living room opens directly on to the flagged terrace and landscaped gardens through floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that extend across the rear elevation. The statement kitchen and island unit were designed and fitted by Clive Christian Furniture Co. as was the media unit in the living area. The kitchen has a gas fired Aga with electric companion and multiple fitted appliances including two Sub Zero fridges and a bespoke larder cupboard. There is a large utility/laundry room, a study and two elegant, south facing reception rooms with bay windows and fireplaces. On the first floor the superb bedroom suite accommodation is versatile with bespoke dressing rooms and luxury fitted bathrooms.
Electric wrought iron gates open to a paved drive and turning area in front of the house providing ample parking for up to ten cars and a detached, triple garage block with power and light. At the rear of the garden is a detached cinema room, stylishly designed with a bar. Majestic gardens surround the house, abundantly planted with a shelterbelt of established trees, hedging and shrubs providing a high degree of privacy. Enclosing the flagged terrace is a garden colonnade of Ionic columns draped in wisteria and rambling rose as well as stone raised beds. Lawns with herbaceous borders are encircled by gravel paths and sculpted yews line a flagged path on the eastern boundary. These extensive landscaped gardens are a delightful sanctuary within a city.
Shipton Road is one of York’s main arteries into the city centre meeting up with Bootham and the city walls; it thus provides a route into the historic city and to the ringroad giving rapid access to Leeds and the A1M. It’s a short stroll to St Peter’s and Bootham Schools, and York’s mainline railway station is a pleasant walk or a short drive by car. Alongside Shipton Road are riverside walks leading into York and out to the open green spaces of Rawcliffe Bar Country Park with its Green Flag Award. Opposite lie the fourteen acres of Homestead Park with its floral displays and children’s playpark and York Sports club, host to cricket, rugby, squash and tennis. Clifton village with its independent shops and amenities lies within walking distance and Clifton Moor retail Park, Monks Cross and Vangarde Shopping Park are a short drive away.
