THIS PRETTY Ge­or­gian house on Sim Balk Lane takes its name from the for­mer vil­lage mid­wife Granny Bell.

Orig­i­nally built as two cot­tages, the prop­erty has evolved to be­come a spa­cious, light-filled home in one of York’s sought-af­ter lo­ca­tions.

The house has a drive­way, park­ing and turn­ing area with a sin­gle garage and store on one side and a flagged pa­tio on the other.

It has a break­fast kitchen and pantry, a sit­ting room, cloak­room, din­ing room and study. What was orig­i­nally four bed­rooms on the first floor now has a mas­ter suite with a walk­through dress­ing room and bath­room. There are also two dou­ble bed­rooms and a shower room. The prop­erty has been well-main­tained by the same own­ers for more than 30 years but would now ben­e­fit from a de­gree of mod­erni­sa­tion.

The house is in Bish­opthorpe vil­lage close to York race­course.

Nearby Bish­opthorpe Road is renowned for its in­de­pen­dent shops and cafes.

ALL GOLD: Low Farm is in the pic­turesque vil­lage of Lin­ton. Right, Bell Cot­tage, a charm­ing prop­erty in Bish­opthorpe, York.
