R M English are proud to present, The Pinfold, a truly rare and exciting property in the heart of Heslington. The Pinfold has been a much loved family home for the last 40+ years but the time has now come for another family to take it on and make it their own. The property originally was two separate cottages until they were knocked into one to create the substantial period home you see before you today. There are so very few properties that still benefit from gardens of this size, with fantastic views over open fields at the rear and so close to the centre of York. The Pinfold really is a beautiful property with a huge amount of potential, so a viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate everything it has to offer. The property has an overage clause in place and is offered to the market with No Onward Chain.
Entering through the side door, you find yourself in a good sized kitchen/diner. There is an L shaped worktop to the left hand side which incorporates a sink with drainer. There are various storage units, space for a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a breakfast table with chairs. There are dual aspect windows which allow natural light to enter and the floor is fully tiled. Beyond the kitchen is the first of the two living rooms. This like the kitchen is a good size with an open fireplace at its centre. The formal dining room is the next room you enter and can accommodate a large dining table and chairs. This room is could be used as a snug or home office, if a dining room is not required.
The main living room has a lovely bay window with a set of timber doors that open out to the rear garden. At one end of the room there is a cast iron open fireplace, a lovely addition especially for the colder winter months. At the far end of the property you will find the second kitchen which again has a worktop, storage and space for white goods. There is a separate utility room with a door at the rear that again opens to the rear garden. There are two ground floor cloakrooms both with a w/c and hand basin. In addition there are two gas fired boilers, one at each end of the property.
To the first floor you will find an impressive galleried landing and four double bedrooms, all of which are spacious, with a number benefitting from built in storage. There are two separate bathrooms both of which have a bath, pedestal hand basin and w/c.
Externally the garden is secure and substantial in size, perfect if you have young children or pets. It is mainly laid to lawn with borders of mature trees and shrubs. There is a large pond in the back left hand corner which has been drained down but could be reinstated if desired. If you like to sit and enjoy the sun in the summer months then the patio seating area will surely appeal. There are two separate vehicular entrances, one to either side of the property. The entrance on the right hand side is the smaller of the two but has space for two cars. The main entrance has space for multiple cars, whilst a double garage with electric doors provides further parking or storage. In addition there is an characterful brick built stable attached to the garage that could be converted into a home office or used for further storage. Both entrances can be closed off by five bar timber gates.
The Pinfold really is an exceptional property that can be only fully appreciated on viewing.
