An immaculate 4 bedroom modern townhouse in an exclusive gated development, situated in a peaceful corner of York city centre.

Orchard Court is an exclusive development of just seven homes, built to exacting standards in 2011 by the reputable firm Mack & Lawler in the gardens of the former property belonging to George Hudson, the railway king. Number 5 is particularly impressive, the specification having been upgraded at the time of build, and benefits from the remainder of a 10 year NHBC guarantee.

The accommodation is laid out over 3 floors and is presented to an exceptional standard throughout. All of the fixtures and fittings chosen are of the highest quality, the level of thought and care clearly demonstrated in the attention to detail; Junckers Oak flooring, oak staircase, deep ceiling cornicing, fitted kitchen by Smith Brothers of York with Neff appliances and fitted Hammonds wardrobes. With a focus on low maintenance and energy efficiency, the house benefits from high levels of insulation, extensive LED lighting, heat reflective and insulated windows, and aluminium fascias and soffits. The windows and external doors are architectural decorative timber on the inside with aluminium powder coated cladding on the outside.

A well-balanced, bright and practical house, all of the rooms are of good proportions and generously sized. The ground floor is free flowing; the dining room leading through to the kitchen with the sitting room at the rear of the house boasting French doors onto the south facing garden. The first floor comprises the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and en suite shower room, alongside bedroom 2 and a family bathroom. Bedrooms 3 and 4 occupy the second floor and share a further shower room.

Beautifully landscaped by Vertigrow, the south facing rear garden is a delightful area in which to enjoy such a peaceful location. Showcasing an artisictally created lawned area, pond, a variety of interesting shrubs, in addition to a useful storage shed and gated rear access. To the front, electric remote and intercom controlled gates give access to the secure parking area, which includes one private parking space for the property and further visitor parking. There is also a cycle store with two allocated spaces and a bin store to the side.

Orchard Court is a very private and exclusive development located just off Monkgate, adjoining the city walls. Despite its central position, it is surprisingly quiet and hidden away. A perfect location for the multitude of facilities that the city of York has to offer, it is also within walking distance of the main line station which provides fast and regular services further afield including London Kings Cross in less than 2 hours.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
