6 Av­enue Road, Har­ro­gate Price: £339,950 Con­tact: Bead­nall and Co­p­ley, tel: 01423 503500, www.bead­nall­cop­ley.co.uk POST­CODE snob­bery is rife in Har­ro­gate, but those who widen their search can be richly re­warded.

Vic­to­ria Mank­telow traded her des-res over­look­ing the Stray for a stun­ning Ge­or­gian town­house in Star­beck just over 10 years ago. “We wanted some­where big­ger and this was fan­tas­tic value for a su­perb house.

“There’s an iden­ti­cal ter­race in the cen­tre of Har­ro­gate de­signed by the same ar­chi­tect and houses there are al­most dou­ble the price of this, plus we have a big­ger gar­den and off-road park­ing,” says Vic­to­ria, a mar­ket­ing man­ager.

The four-bed­room house is close to Star­beck sta­tion with trains to Leeds, York and Lon­don.

“It’s a great spot and the peo­ple in the area are very friendly. Ev­ery­thing I want is on the doorstep in­clud­ing a su­per­mar­ket, a great butcher’s shop, the train and the A1.

“It takes a cou­ple of hours for me to get into Lon­don and when I get back af­ter a long day it’s off the train and straight into the house, which is great,” adds Vic­to­ria, who is sell­ing to move some­where with land for her horse.

She and hus­band John, who have three chil­dren, re­fur­bished the house which is full of pe­riod fea­tures.

The prop­erty has a re­cep­tion hall, cloak­room, draw­ing room din­ing room and kitchen with hand-built units from Brook­man. On the first floor there are two bed­rooms and a bath­room and on the sec­ond floor there are two fur­ther bed­rooms.

There is a lawned gar­den at the front and a court­yard at the back plus a car port and sin­gle garage.

STUN­NING: The four-bed­room Ge­or­gian town­house, which is re­fur­bished and full of pe­riod fea­tures. Right, the draw­ing room.
