Reeds Rains Haxby Hold Open Hour At Fantastic Edwardian Property

Posted 20/09/2012 by: Reeds Rains

Reeds Rains Haxby is excited to announce they will be holding an open hour for a fantastic Edwardian home. The property was until recently the ‘Blair Atholl’ nursing home, but thanks to local man Gary Crosby, it has been returned to its former glory.

On Saturday the 22nd of September, between 11am and noon, members of the public are invited to visit 120 York Road to discover more about this unique property. Having recently been renovated to an exceptional standard whilst retaining many original features, the property is quite literally bursting with history.

Local historian Peter Stanthorpe commented 120 York Road was built in the early 1900’s by a wealthy developer from Scarborough, who also built The Laurels and The Cedars, two impressive stone semi-detached houses on Station Road. He became an important resident of the then expanding village and went on to build the series of terraced houses on the west side of York Road.”

Branch Manager at Reeds Rains Haxby, Claire Holmes added “Such a distinctive property is quite rare and being in a highly sought after location really makes it stand out. Haxby is a beautiful place to live with local shops, amenities and two primary schools nearby as well as excellent transport links to York city centre.”

Claire continued “Because the property is so special we wanted to invite people along to appreciate the renovation work, the size of the rooms and the tall ceilings, the galleried landing and the enormous kitchen and living area. I would strongly encourage potential buyers to attend the open hour on the 22nd of September to see first- hand what this property has to offer.”

The ground floor comprises of a spacious entrance hall with original flooring, two large reception rooms, an impressive kitchen area with a log burning stove as well as a utility room and downstairs WC. To the first floor there is a galleried landing, family bathroom, master bedroom with en-suite shower room and a further four bedrooms. A lawned garden, patio area, off road parking and garage further adds to the property’s appeal.

And if that wasn’t enough, you can also visit the adjacent property which is being renovated as we speak. See you on the 22nd!
