Behind the cornflower blue front door, Ivy Holme boasts a bright, open plan ground floor and four double bedrooms, shower room and exquisite bathroom across two further floors. Exceptionally well presented by the current owner, the property is an excellent example of a York townhouse and will suit a range of buyers looking for a spacious home within the city centre.

Set back from the road with a fore courted frontage, the front entrance door perfectly complements the original tiled floor, and opens into an entrance porch with a further, original, glazed door into the hall. The high ceilings, with decorative corbels and coving, continue throughout the property, giving a feeling of space.

Passing the staircase to the first floor, the ground floor continues to the dining room, which opens out through an arch into a secondary reception space giving a good degree of versatility. A cast iron open fireplace and mantle with decorative tiling and a slate hearth stand central to the dining room and a sash window overlooks the rear courtyard garden. Shelving and a cupboard sit within the alcove and a further under stairs cupboard provides additional storage.

Through the arch the dining room continues into the family room, where ample space is provided for reception and dining furniture. A decorative ceiling rose compliments the coving and a uPVC window to the side aspect looks out onto the flower beds and trellis.

Previously extended, the kitchen has been opened up to provide two areas and is filled with light. Cream wall and base units are fitted with contrasting solid oak worktops over. The units include a full-length pantry cupboard and multiple, deep pan drawers. Integral appliances include a Neff, eye-level double oven with grill and a Neff, five-ring gas hob with extractor hood over. A double Belfast sink sits beneath the window looking out onto the side patio and space is provided for an under counter dishwasher. The kitchen continues to the secondary area, ideal for a breakfast table or sofa and space is provided here for a free standing American fridge freezer. A skylight allows for extra light and a glazed, uPVC rear entrance door leads out to the rear courtyard garden.

From the kitchen, the utility room is fitted with a base unit to match the kitchen, with a solid oak, contrasting worktop over. Space is provided underneath for a free standing washing machine and dryer. The Worcester combi gas central heating boiler is fitted above the work tops and an opaque, uPVC window is situated to the rear aspect. Formerly a house bathroom, the utility room is fitted with a white hand basin and WC.

Back through the kitchen and dining room, the sitting room is located to the front of the property, tucked away from the rest of the ground floor. This spacious yet cosy reception room is centred around a striking, black, cast iron log burner set within a stylish tiled fireplace with a slate hearth and timber beam mantle. The sash bay window also offers a characteristic focal point to the room and a classic column radiator sits beneath. A picture rail and stripped wooden flooring continue the character and charm within the sitting room, and the property.

From the hallway, the staircase leads to the split-level, first floor landing, with the staircase to the second floor. An original, decorative, stained glass skylight also serves as a hatch to a loft space and a fitted cupboard provides everyday storage.

Situated to the front of the property, with all of the features you would expect of the original master bedroom, bedroom one is incredibly light and spacious with double sash windows to the front, including a large sash bay. Characteristic alcoves and a classic column radiator, again, add further charm.

Bedroom three is a good sized double with a large sash window overlooking the rear courtyard garden and the terraced rooftops beyond. A fitted cupboard provides storage and a classic-style, column radiator is also fitted.

Bedroom four is also a good sized double and offers ample space for bedroom furniture. A large, sash window to the rear aspect brings in plenty of light to the room, along with a further classic-styled, column radiator.

The house shower room is fitted with a white, three-piece suite comprising: a large shower unit with a traditional style, rainfall shower, WC and a hand basin set within a vanity unit with a storage cupboard and shelving. White timber panelling to the walls adds character alongside tiling. A large, opaque, sash window open out to the side aspect and a full length, classic-style column towel rail is also fitted.

The stairs to the second floor lead to a small landing with a hatch providing access to the loft space, which is boarded for storage.

Bedroom two, which now works as the master bedroom, is a spacious double with a dormer window looking out over the park to the front of the property, and a skylight for additional light. Ample head height allows for plenty of space and versatility for furniture within the room.

Alongside bedroom two, with access from both the bedroom or the landing, the en-suite bathroom is a luxurious yet contemporary addition to the second floor. Fitted with a four-piece, white suite comprising: WC, pedestal hand basin and modern double shower unit with traditional style, rainfall shower. Standing central to the room, the suite is beautifully finished with a duck egg blue, roll-top bath, sat beneath the dormer window with views across to York Minster. Stylish tiling to the floor and walls in tonal blues and greys keeps the contemporary feel to the room and a classic, column radiator is in keeping with the traditional bath.

Externally, Ivy Holme benefits from a low maintenance, fore courted frontage, with a low brick wall and timber gate. To the rear of the property, the courtyard garden is mainly laid to decorative, stone paving with a covered seating area with power and light. A timber-fronted outside store provides ample garden and bike storage, whilst a double, timber gate leads to a private passageway and then onto the service road behind the terraces. A gravel and slate decorative area with mature shrubs and trellis is directly from the rear entrance door and can be viewed from the rear reception rooms and kitchen.
