“The big white ra­di­a­tors really stuck out and so I changed them for a con­tem­po­rary tube-style that blended with the decor,” she says.

Jo is leav­ing to buy a house in the coun­try with her part­ner.

“I was sin­gle when I bought the house and I have loved liv­ing here but we are each sell­ing our prop­er­ties to buy our first home to­gether.

“I will miss this place. It’s really easy to main­tain and the kitchen din­ing room is great for en­ter­tain­ing, es­pe­cially as it leads out into the garden, which is com­pletely pri­vate.”

Ful­ford is a pop­u­lar sub­urb to the south side of York.

It has good pri­mary and sec­ondary schools, a range of lo­cal ameni­ties and is well placed for the A64.

York city cen­tre is about 1½ miles away and the vil­lage of Hes­ling­ton and its Univer­sity of York cam­pus are nearby. RE­GEN­ER­A­TION com­pany Ur­ban Splash won four awards at the an­nual What House Awards.

Among the win­ning schemes was Sh­effield’s own Park Hill, which picked up a bronze for Best Ex­te­rior. It is the third award this year for the former coun­cil flats, which are be­ing turned into con­tem­po­rary apart­ments.

Ur­ban Splash has sold over half of the first phase of 78 apart­ments at Park Hill and has re­cently launched a shared own­er­ship op­tion in con­junc­tion with hous­ing group Great Places to give peo­ple on lower in­comes an op­por­tu­nity to get onto the prop­erty lad­der. The first new com­mer­cial ten­ant was also re­cently an­nounced.


It’s rare to find a de­tached home for this price in York. The house, in Ful­ford, has two bed­rooms and a pri­vate garden.
