Owners Jane and Darren Sharpe bought it thanks to its location in the sought-after area of Huntington, less than two miles from York city centre, and for its untapped potential. It was ripe for extension and has an enormous garden.

“We chose it because we could see potential due to the outlook over the garden leading down to the River Foss. The rear extension has bi-fold doors which allows you to make the best of this feature,” says Jane.

“We also changed the layout and made a much larger kitchen. The original kitchen is now a utility room. We’ve also added an extra bathroom and bedroom.”

The bungalow looks unassuming from the front

The ground floor has a large kitchen/dining room opening to the 18ft x 17ft sitting room. There’s also a utility room with a side entrance door, a double bedroom and a stylish shower room.

On the first floor there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

There is also off street parking, a driveway along the side leading to a garage and a long lawn leading down to the River Foss beyond.
