Tucked away off the popular Holgate Road, this Victorian end terrace has been sympathetically modernised by the current owners whilst still retaining and enhancing the beautiful, original features making it a fine example of this style of city property. The front, shuttered facade hides the wealth of accommodation behind, including a stunning open plan kitchen/ diner and three good sized bedrooms. Furthermore, the property boasts a larger than average, south westerly, rear patio garden with the option of parking.

With a fore courted frontage, the property is approached via the low maintenance, gravelled entrance leading to the front entrance door, opening into the entrance porch. A further glazed door, with stained glass inset above, leads into the hallway. The period features are instantly apparent as you step through the door into the hallway, with the high ceilings and beautiful, original tiled floor.

Throughout the property, period internal doors have been restored and add further character. One such leads into the lounge, which is situated to the front of the property, with a large, shuttered, bay window allowing for light to fill the room, enhanced by the high ceilings and neutral décor. Central to the room, a gas fire sits within a sympathetically chosen cast iron fireplace with a tiled hearth and alcoves to either side. Stripped wooden flooring, decorative coving, ornate ceiling rose and picture rails are further period features complimenting the décor.

The hallway leads to the stair case and now opens out into the dining room and kitchen, a decision by the current owners which now allows for plenty of light to flow through the ground floor. The panelled staircase benefits from an under stairs cupboard providing useful cloakroom storage. The dining room still retains the large open fireplace which has now been fitted with a cast iron log burner standing on a tiled hearth. Shelving has been fitted to the alcoves providing storage and a modern, full length radiator is discreetly fitted to the side of the window. The large sash window of the dining room looks out onto the quaint patio area, with its mature plants and shrubs. Stripped wood flooring is fitted in this room and, as before, compliments the neutral décor and retained, period features.

The recently fitted, stunning blue kitchen has been chosen to perfectly compliment the tiled floor from the hallway which continues to the step down into the kitchen area. A range of wall and base units are fitted with contrasting granite effect work surfaces over. Integral appliances include an eye level, Siemens oven and grill, fridge freezer and dishwasher. The cleverly designed storage makes the best use of the space and offers ample storage with pan drawers and oak shelving additional notable features. The sink unit and drainer sits beneath the sash window over- looking the rear yard with its characterful brick walls and mature plants. White, industrial style tiled splashbacks and gold handles give a stylish finish to this impeccable kitchen and neutral tiling to the floor is a practical choice for this high traffic area. To the rear of the kitchen, a utility cupboard provides further valuable storage with space and plumbing provided for a washing machine and dryer.

From the kitchen, step down leads to the rear entrance porch, a further example of another surprising feature of this home that offers further space and storage. With exposed brick walls and a quarry tiled floor, the rear entrance door leads out onto the patio and further garden beyond.

The staircase leads to the first floor landing which benefits from an original, large linen cupboard and a small window to the side aspect. The loft hatch provides access to the loft space which is part boarded for storage and offers the potential, subject to planning, for further development of the property.

Bedroom one is located to the front of the property with a double sash window fitted with stylish shutters, perfectly in keeping with the age of the property. As with the rest of the property, the large window and high ceiling create a feeling of light and space, accompanying the tasteful, pale décor. Original fitted wardrobes stand within the alcoves, providing useful storage, and the room is finished off with a traditional style radiator, decorative coving and picture rail.

Bedroom two retains an original cast iron fireplace and benefits from space within an alcove, ideal for storage furniture. A window overlooks the rear garden and attractive town houses beyond.

Bedrooms three is a spacious single but would equally work well as an occasional double. The curved ceiling with coving is a characterful feature and a sash window looks to the side aspect and over the rear garden.

The house bathroom is beautifully finished and fitted with a period inspired three piece suite comprising; a tiled panelled bath with shower over, a large hand basin set on a vanity unit with drawer storage and a low level WC. An opaque window with oak sill is located to the side aspect and Moroccan inspired tiling is fitted to the floor and adds an additional feature to a cubby hole set within the wall over the bath.

For a property of this style so close to the city centre, it benefits from a larger- than- average, rear patio garden which oozes character and provides several outside spaces to enjoy. A patio area opens out directly from the rear of the property, boarded by attractive brick walls and mature plants, and continues to a raised decked seating area and established a vegetable patch. A brick built outbuilding and timber shed provide useful external storage and timber double gates provide access to the rear alleyway and allow for parking to the rear of the garden, if desired.

The property sits within a popular area of Holgate; close to the community garden, the outstanding St Paul's Primary School and within a short walk of the railway station and the city centre.
