Topiary House, Railway Street, Slingsby, York, YO62 4AH | Offers in excess of £550,000

Topiary House is an impressive property, part of the old Hutton Bros Garage having been converted into a stunning family home. The central entrance hall is large, and practical with built-in storage. To the left, the sitting room lies beyond double doors and offers plenty of space with a hand carved, stone feature fireplace to add a real feeling of cosiness. Opposite the sitting room is the open-plan kitchen/dining room, where modern wall and base units and under-cupboard lighting add a stylish twist to the tradition of the downstairs. There are French doors which open out into the rear garden and a utility room and guest cloakroom to complete the ground floor.

Upstairs are two double en-suite bedrooms adding luxury of the house; one with a bath - the other with an enclosed shower. Both bedrooms enjoy views over the tree and rooftops to the local church, and window details reiterate that country cottage feel.

Externally there is a low maintenance rear garden including storage while catching plenty of sun throughout the day. Off street parking is plentiful, and there is a gravel driveway.
