Vine House, 21 Main Street, Stamford Bridge, York YO41 1AE
This handsome 18th century grade II listed property is in many ways the perfect village house: it lies in the heart of the old village, its provenance is Georgian, it enjoys an elevated riverside position, has a separate annexe and its lovely, landscaped gardens sweep down to the river Derwent. The present owners have carried out a comprehensive programme of restoration and modernisation and Vine House must surely be one of the finest properties in the heart of Stamford Bridge.
• Large period house of 2579 sq fit, annexe of 598 sq ft
• 3 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
• Lovely architectural features: sash windows, shutters, period fireplaces, exposed brickwork, old panelled pine doors, stripped wooden floors
• Gorgeous riverside house and gardens – no flooding
• Swimming pool with views up and down the river Derwent
The front of the house stands back from the village road behind a low brick wall with wrought iron railings, gates and a smart front garden. A tarmacadamed drive leads to high wrought iron gates and on to the annexe with integrated double garage, turning area, parking for a number of cars and stone flagged terrace. Beyond, the garden with its long sloping lawn, bounded by a high hedge to one side and high wall to the other, heads gently down to the river bank. Points of interest include a pond and timber summer house overlooking a broad decking area with an attractive outdoor swimming pool. Below the raised decking area lies a lovely spot for sitting out, being protected from the elements and perfect for al fresco dining, with river views. At the far end of the garden is the wilder, working area that meets the riverbank and is designed to alleviate any river flooding. Here there are secure wrought iron railings around a riverside timber landing stage.
