THREE WORDS – Bishy Road Abode!
71 Russell Street enjoys a prominent position in one of York’s most favoured locations within easy walking distance of the hugely popular “Bishy Road”. It is a charming blend of character and traditional style.
This traditional Victorian property has been lovingly updated by the owner creating a place you want to call home! It is wonderfully light and airy, the windows (barring the kitchen) have been replaced with wooden double-glazed sash windows and underfloor heating in the bathroom.
The property retains many original features; tiled flooring in the hallway, original doors, corniced ceiling, ceiling rose and original fireplaces. The subtle coloured walls and neutral flooring gives a warm vibe to this charming home. Any buyer can move their furniture in and call it home!
Walk through the original wood pannelled painted door to a vestibule, ideal for hanging coats and shoes. Through the half glazed opaque door into a welcoming hallway with original tiled floor. To the left is the sitting room bathed in natural light from the bay window overlooking the front. The ornate fireplace gives it a cosy feel, perfect for relaxing watching Netflix on a wintery evening.
Head through to the dining room, a generous sized room with original built in cupboard and alcove with fitted shelving. There is plenty of room for a dining table super for entertaining friends and family.
Continue to the Farrow and Ball painted kitchen with light oak effect cupboards and drawers that perfectly complement the black work surface. Fitted with all mod cons, electric cooker, gas hob, extractor hood, fridge/freezer and full-sized dishwasher it is ideal for a busy cook. There is plumbing for a washing machine and useful under stairs cupboard, handy for storing household items and bits and bobs. With UPVC windows to the side and rear it is wonderfully light and airy.
A door leads to the courtyard.
Take the stairs to the first floor, the landing is galleried and there is access to the loft.
The main bedroom has fresh white walls and pretty white original fireplace. The sash window looks to the front aspect, and there are two fitted cupboards.
The second double bedroom is currently in use as a home office/guest bedroom, the sash window looks to the rear. There is a lovely ornate period fireplace, fitted alcove cupboard, built in cupboard and stripped flooring.
The bathroom has a luxurious feel with underfloor heating, smart tiled flooring and two chrome heated towel rails. The panelled bath has shower over, perfect for a leisurely soak after a hectic day or the busy morning rush.
There is a walled courtyard with gated access to the back alley which offers vehicular access. This space is a real sun trap and we can imagine alfresco dining with friends or simply relaxing have a chilled G&T before supper.
There is a useful brick built outbuilding. To the front is a stone forecourt with mature perennials making it private.
