This pretty Georgian house on Sim Balk Lane takes its name from the former village midwife Granny Bell.
Originally built as two cottages, the property has evolved to become a spacious, light-filled home in one of York’s sought-after locations.
The house has a driveway, parking and turning area with a single garage and store on one side and a flagged patio on the other.
It has a breakfast kitchen and pantry, a sitting room, cloakroom, dining room and study. What was originally four bedrooms on the first floor now has a master suite with a walk-through dressing room and bathroom. There are also two double bedrooms and a shower room. The property has been well-maintained by the same owners for more than 30 years but would now benefit from a degree of modernisation.
The house is in Bishopthorpe, dubbed the Notting Hill of the North, and renowned for its independent shops and cafes and racecourse.
