It was sold a couple of years ago but it needed work then. Now it's back. SO GORGEOUS! Anybody want to lend me about 2.2 million?

Lovely garden and library room - not too keen on the purple though.

I hate it. The outside is nice, but I'd have to gut the insides!

Northernlurker Sat 01-Aug-15 14:52:31

You can't gut the inside! That's the special bit grin
I dread to think how much the owners have spent on it. It needed new heating, the works last time it was on the market.

wow - gorgeous - I love Arts and Crafts and a Gertrude Jekyll garden! Please invite me to visit when you have bought it............... I'll bring wine!

I like the outside too but all that wood everywhere, not for me.

Too much wood paneling for me, I'm not keen on Arts and Crafts houses, though I can appreciate the quality of the restoration. The purple kitchen is an abomination though.

Inconsiderate to only take 12 photos! I'd like to see the lot.

Wouldn't want to live there. Quite like the lilac aga but less keen on the island!

I claim that pictures 5 and 6 are of the same room with different furniture.

RaphaellaTheSpanishWaterDog Sat 01-Aug-15 17:49:14

Yes please, I love it - but don't like some of the more contemporary touches, especially that awful island (although the lilac Aga is fab!). A Gertrude Jekyll garden too....wonderful!

We are huge Arts & Crafts fans/collectors and our current house has an Arts & Crafts extension complete with original features, so I guess it was bound to float my boat.

If you buy it OP, I'll be popping along with Bilbodog for a visit.....will also bring wine......

If you buy it I'll walk up for a g&t in the garden.

Bunbaker Sat 01-Aug-15 18:09:43

I love the gardens. Not sure about all the wood panelling inside.

Toomuch2young Sat 01-Aug-15 18:17:02

Hmm it's different anyway but for that money if want a lot more land and stables and a swimming pool
Not that I would mind if someone gave it to me, obviously!

bigkidsdidit Sat 01-Aug-15 18:22:06

It's gorgeous. I love wood panelling. Up here in Scotland arts and crafts houses are often under a million, I'll find one for you smile

bigkidsdidit Sat 01-Aug-15 18:24:00

It's not 'mock style' anything confused it's original arts and crafts

JassyRadlett Sat 01-Aug-15 18:32:02

Gosh. They like purple, don't they?

Another who's not a fan of wood panelling. Love the garden.

bigkidsdidit Sat 01-Aug-15 18:32:04

Actually northern you can keep yours I'm having this one

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Sat 01-Aug-15 18:34:15

I agree about the photos - all that house and only 12 photos - and half of them exterior shots! I want to see more of the inside.

Pipbin Sat 01-Aug-15 18:34:46

Was that one the house where BBC 4 had the program about the couple moving out, Big?

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Sat 01-Aug-15 18:37:04

bigkids that is amazing. Can you re link to the actual listing so we can see where it is and more crucially how much grin

bigkidsdidit Sat 01-Aug-15 18:39:13

Does that not link?


bigkidsdidit Sat 01-Aug-15 18:39:45

No idea, pipbin, found it on a rightmove search of areas j like grin

kickassangel Sat 01-Aug-15 18:41:38

I love York and really like that house.

I could tolerate the kitchen island, although it probably wouldn't be hard to change the door colors. I would have to say that I wasn't like that woman in Breaking Bad though.

It's probably haunted if they are selling so soon!
