Property Description

An elegant Grade II Listed Victorian townhouse with a striking modern extension and a mature walled garden, situated close to York city centre with views over the Knavesmire.



The elegant townhouses forming Mount Vale were designed and built in the mid nineteenth century by Thomas Prosser, architect to the North Eastern Railway Company who designed York’s station. As such, the terrace is cited as being of architectural and historic interest, and illustrates the suburban growth of York as the professional classes expanded and houses were constructed outside of the city walls. A particularly green and leafy stretch of The Mount, the properties here are blessed with open views across the Knavesmire and towards the Racecourse to the front aspect, and across the pretty walled gardens to the rear.

Number 198 has been sensitively restored and superbly modernised in recent years. In acknowledgment of its notable origins, a striking rear extension was completed in 2021 by multiple RIBA award winning local architects, creating a fabulous open-plan kitchen/dining area that beautifully contrasts modern design with period character. The extensive use of glazing maximises the natural light flow, enhancing the sense of space and affording a wonderful outlook to the garden beyond. A zinc clad pitched roof with a roof light, open joist timber ceiling, exposed brick feature walls, and a sleek kitchen design work in perfect harmony with the original features of the property. With underfloor heating, high-quality integral appliances and a Qettle tap, this is a smartly crafted home for practical modern living. Sliding glazed doors seamlessly connect to the outdoors, a stone paved terrace a natural continuation of the entertaining and relaxing space.

The original part of the house comprises traditionally proportioned rooms with high ceilings and plenty of character reflecting the period. Beautifully restored cornicing with intricate detailing, feature fireplaces, stained glass and sash windows with working shutters, all complemented by stylish decor. The attention to detail is exceptional, with fine handcrafted elements and finishing touches carefully chosen.

Arranged over 4 floors, the property offers a versatile layout with up to 5 bedrooms. In Victorian times, the first floor provided an impressive drawing room, the large bay window to the front affording fine south-easterly views. Currently, it serves as the principal bedroom, with the possibility of adding an en suite to the neighbouring bedroom (subject to planning consents) to create a luxurious first floor suite if desired.

To the second floor, a further 2 double bedrooms and the house bathroom with a sumptuous copper free-standing bath and separate walk-in shower unit. The third floor houses the remaining double bedroom with a cleverly designed en suite and ample hidden storage space. From the elevated vantage point, it boasts wonderful views over the Knavesmire, across rooftops and towards the city.

The rear garden offers a rare oasis for such a central location. Extending to approximately 200 ft and enclosed by mellow brick walls, the stretch of lawn is interspersed with specimen trees, mature planted beds, and a small pond. Adjoining the house, the rear terrace offers a blissful retreat from busy city life and provides the perfect setting for al fresco entertaining. There are lighting and electricity points, and a water supply for easy garden maintenance.

The house is set back behind a pretty forecourt with established hedging and an attractive wrought-iron gate. Parking is provided on the street, and the current owners rent a garage close by on Mount Vale Drive.

Mount Vale is a prestigious address situated just half a mile from Micklegate Bar walls, the Royal entrance to the city. Offering all the attractions of city life and the benefit of open green spaces of the Knavesmire and Hob Moor on the doorstep. York Railway station is less than a mile away, with direct links to London in less than 2 hours, and the A64/A1 road network is within easy reach. There are a number of highly regarded schools nearby, both private and state, including St Peters, The Mount, All Saints, and York 6th Form College.
