Bootham is probably York’s most handsome street, lined with Georgian and early Victorian properties that stretch along this historic thoroughfare culminating in Bootham Bar, an eleventh century gateway on the site of a Roman fortress. No. 64 is a grand house that stands discreetly on Bootham’s southern flank just a leisurely amble from the medieval walls that enclose the city centre. It’s a substantial house with living space throughout the lower ground floor designed for lavish entertaining. The whole includes a detached cottage ideal for multi-generational use or holiday letting.

The rear south west facing walled garden is sheltered and private. It rises in shallow terraces from the French doors on the lower ground floor, and additional stone steps with a wrought iron handrail ascend to the kitchen door. It is designed as an entertaining space ideal for al fresco dining.

The entirely self-contained cottage is arranged over two floors and has independent access from the lane. It is luxuriously appointed throughout.
