Situated in one of arguably the most sought after areas of York, this beautiful, traditional family home overlooks the woodland to the rear of York Racecourse, along Bracken Road, and offers buyers a quiet residential area with all of the benefits of the city centre just a short distance away. Having been a much loved family home for the last 27 years, number 76 has undergone improvement and extension over this time and now offers four bedrooms, an open plan kitchen/ diner, spacious family bathroom and ground floor WC.

As with many of the homes in this area, the property is well presented externally and is approached via a driveway boarded by a low wall. An arched porch, in keeping with the age of the property, leads to the traditional front entrance door. Original, leaded windows to the side of the door feature stained glass patterns, which have been replicated on the uPVC replaced windows throughout the property, perfectly fusing the traditional and modern.

Entering the property into the hallway, it is hard not to be impressed with the space on offer, a typical feature for this age of property. Stripped wooden flooring runs from the hallway and continues into the two reception rooms and an original, stained glass porthole window has been retained as a feature and now looks into the garage.

A ground floor WC has been cleverly fitted to the under stairs and is fitted with a white two piece suite with part tiled walls and tiled flooring.

The two reception rooms are versatile and could easily be interchangeable. The front room is currently used as a lounge and features the beautiful original leaded bay window. A coal effect gas fire stands in a cream, marble effect surround with pine mantle over. Coving is fitted to the ceiling and this feature continues throughout the rest of the house.

To the rear, and with a bay window and door opening out onto the decked seating area, the dining room is washed with light and offers a spacious room in which to relax or socialise.

The extended dining kitchen has been cleverly designed to offer two separate areas yet both linked to create an open plan, family space. An extensive range of high quality, timber wall and base units continue throughout and include open shelving, a wine rack and a glass fronted display cabinet. A large, full length corner cupboard offers cloakroom storage. Integral appliances include a Siemens under counter fridge, Siemens under counter freezer, washing machine, Siemens double electric oven and grill and gas hob with extractor hood over to match the timber units. The stainless steel sink unit and drainer sits within the bay window overlooking the rear garden.

The dining area is bright and airy with large window overlooking the lawn and glazed rear entrance door opening out onto the garden. An internal door to the garage is located within the kitchen and provides handy access.

From the entrance hall, the staircase to the first floor leads to a split level landing leading to the four bedrooms and house bathroom. A hatch provides access to the loft space which is boarded for storage with power and light. A ladder is attached to the hatch for easy access.

Bedroom one lies to the front of the property with a large bay window overlooking the quiet street and woodland beyond. Ample space is provided within the bay and alcoves for additional bedroom furniture. Bedroom two, also to the front has been extended to provide a very good sized double with two windows overlooking the front aspect. A notable feature, a window seat with storage, is a nice addition to the room.

Bedroom three, to the rear of the property, is another good sized double with a bay window overlooking the rear garden and fitted wardrobes providing storage. Also to the rear, bedroom four is a good sized single, currently used as a home office and features the same stripped wooden flooring as the ground floor. A large cupboard provides storage and also houses the recently replaced, gas central heating combi boiler.

The spacious, family bathroom has a modern, white three piece suite comprising; low level WC, shower over the bath with glass screen and a hand basin set into an oak effect vanity unit which offers extensive bathroom storage with matching wall and base units. The walls are fully fitted with modern, charcoal tiles and a mirror with lights is set above the hand basin. Additional to the radiator beneath the window, a full length, wall mounted, heated towel rail is also fitted.

The fully enclosed, rear garden is mostly laid to lawn with a decked seating area from the rear of the property. Mature hedging borders parts of the lawn, bringing some colour to the garden, and a timber storage shed is located to the rear. The garden benefits from external utilities including a tap and light.

To the front of the property, the paved driveway offers parking for several cars and a flower bed with mature plants and shrubs is located to the front of the driveway. The single garage benefits from an electric, roller shutter door and further internal door to the kitchen. Fitted with power and light, the garage was re built several years ago as part of the house extension.

Middlethorpe Grove is situated to the south of the City of York, part of a hugely popular, small residential area just off the sought after Tadcaster Road. Its proximity to the city centre and York Racecourse give easy access to the vast amenities of York yet woodland and York's popular cycle path are just a stone's throw away. The area enjoys a variety of local amenities and a major supermarket is just a few minutes away. It is an ideal location for those needing access to the A64 and major road networks beyond and is within the catchment for excellent primary and secondary schools.
