[[ here] I pass this every morning. The kitchen needs extending and the bathroom and master bedroom decor would have to go straight away but otherwise it's damn near perfect.
Just need a few hundred grand to hand.......

Oooops here

Ooh that's gorgeous. Agree kitchen a massive let down and needs updating. And I bet that's "Overtly Olive" paint in picture 5. Same as my living area <smug with good taste> grin

I like that shade but the dark green in the bathroom is dire. Even the agent knows the kitchen is a let down - it mentions potential to extend/knock through (in a listed house - that'll be fun) in the details. And that looks like a solid hob in at the monet <<shudder>> I love the garden though. I don't know if you can judge from the photos but basically it's quite high up so v private. About 4 minutes walk from York Minster.

I like the house and sizes of the rooms etc BUT I would need to change to colour of that green and black bedroom and the dark green bathroom

Shakey1500 Sat 25-May-13 23:16:48

I had about 15 different green patches of testers on the wall before settling on the Overtly Olive (I don't work for them-honest!) but only because I'd got it disastrously wrong in the last house and ended up with luminous an unsuitable green.

That's what the vendors should have done here - before they ended up with depressing dank in the bathroom [gron]

Green has to be THE most difficult colour to get right.

The people who owned our house before us painted the living room pistachio. I quite like it but wouldn't have chosen it myself.

Hot diggity - that's a sweet piece of house. Really like all the colours.

NorthernLurker Sun 26-May-13 13:23:39

I have decided I will knock the kitchen through in to the breakfast room. Now just need a big bag of money......

Stunning............. off to

DAARGH! The wallpaper and matching duvet cover - too much! Nice garden though. The house from the outside reminds me of a rectory. Respectable looking, quietly elegant.

Gorgeous, makes me want to move to York, not that we could afford that but whenever I look on Right move it does always seem to have lovely period properties that are so much more affordable than where we are sad

Ohhhhhh....envy envy envy

I drive past it too and had never realised how big the garden is. When we were house hunting we looked at a house further up that road but on the other side -nothing as lovely as that one.

Reastie Mon 27-May-13 14:34:42

lovely house envy

EleanorFarjeon Mon 27-May-13 14:36:58

It's lovely and screams potential.

It needs a gorgeous, big fuck off kitchen.

NorthernLurker Mon 27-May-13 17:38:48

I think you'd need a really good architect! You've either got to build on the back - and look at the side picture - how do you avoid it looking 'stuck on'? Or you knock through in to the breakfast room - managing that with the fireplace in the way between the two rooms.

NorthernLurker Mon 27-May-13 17:42:57

Here's a thought - what about knocking through between the current dining room and breakfast room and making that in to a kitchen/dining/living space - which you walk directly out in to the garden in to through the doors from the current dining room. Then convert what look like two cupboards off breakfast room and kitchen in to a utility and the current kitchen in to a study.

Oh I always loved that house. I used to live on that road as a student and it is just stunning.

Now off to read the thread!

SconeInSixtySeconds Mon 27-May-13 19:25:06

Hmm. On research it seems a little overpriced. It sold in 2004 for 450grand or so - the chances that it has gone up that much seems unlikely to me.

Anyway, this was my student home. It didn't look like this back then! I had the dining room for 36 pounds per week <nostalgic>

NorthernLurker Mon 27-May-13 22:01:32

I agree about the price. I think the last sold in the terrace was for about 540,000. I think this house has a slight edge being at the end and with the lovely garden - but then the layout isn't perfect.
What do you reckon - offer 520 and hope to pay 550? (I can dream grin)

MadBusLady Mon 27-May-13 22:07:06

Nooo, don't lose the fireplace! Think you'd have to just remove all the walls either side of the fireplace and trust to clever decorating to do the unifying. If you could extend the kitchen though I think something small and glass-roofed is the obvious choice, more likely to get permission. It won't get too hot as it's NW.
