Holiday Rental House
Situated in the heart of York, in the beautiful area of Holgate Road, this home delivers contemporary living and a level of style and comfort that can't be matched by a hotel. Originally built in 1847, this property retains many period features but also benefits from a fantastic recent refurbishment. ?Underfloor heating, a private terrace and courtyard, plus ample living space are just a few of the highlights this property has to offer. Beautiful coving, bay windows with restored stain glass, and fireplaces give this home the wow factor – while the sweeping staircase with vaulted ceiling is drenched in natural light from a roof-light high above. The ground floor features a stylish reception room with a beautiful bay window and original fireplace, while a fully equipped kitchen and family ...Situated in the heart of York, in the beautiful area of Holgate Road, this home delivers contemporary living and a level of style and comfort that can't be matched by a hotel.

The ground floor features a stylish reception room with a beautiful bay window and original fireplace, while a fully equipped kitchen and family room provide exceptional communal spaces. The living room is very bright and comes with a sofa bed comfortably sleeping 2 more guests. Patio doors lead to your own stone paved terrace and private courtyard. Venture upstairs to the first floor and guests will find two spacious bedrooms with original fireplaces, along with a bathroom with a walk in shower. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms featuring original fireplaces, and an additional bathroom. Three bedrooms come with double beds and one with a single bed. The two bathrooms feature modern sinks and towel radiators, plus stunning contemporary tiles that cover the rooms to provide large walk in showers. The light, airy feel throughout the property coupled with stylish and comfortable furnishings, will help you quickly settle and feel instantly at home here. The home has high-speed WiFi and plenty of space to get work done should you need it. You’ll have access to the home at all times. Because the home comes with smart locks, you’ll be able to check in any time after 3pm, but please be mindful of noise after 9pm. Please reach out through this listing if you have any questions, as I am always on call and available to my guests if needed. Right in the heart of York only moments away from shops, cafes, and restaurants, yet it feels like your far away from the hustle and bustle. A lot of different attractions are in walking distance and the homes is close to beautiful green spaces, this home is the perfect location for friends or family. The centre of York is walking distance and you will be spoilt for choice where to look with York ancient heritage and beautiful historic buildings. You’re also never too far from York’s great nightlife. Given the location of the home, most of York's centre is in walking distance or only a very short drive away. You’ll also be able to hail a taxi or use Uber to get around. The home is spread across multiple levels and guests who have difficulties with stairs may find it hard to access the whole home. Travel cots can be provided upon request but guests will have to bring their own linens. Please, no parties or smoking. Please be respectful of the neighbours and keep noise to a minimum after 9pm.
