Steeped in history, Dringhouses, once a small Roman settlement has grown to become one of York�s most desirable and sought after locations. In medieval times a small farming community, Dringhouses became an important and affluent location during the 19th century where many prominent and influential York families started to build large residential properties, today remaining a symbol of their status.
The vibrant suburb now enjoys numerous facilities including a local Post Office, a library, hotels, pubs, bars and restaurants with two supermarkets being about three quarters of a mile away.
Please note all distances are approximate.
Now on the market for the first time in 33 years, Curzon Lodge is a most charming early 17th century Grade II listed residence, being one of the oldest in the original village of Dringhouses.
This unique property offers the opportunity with updating and modernisation, to create a most wonderful family home to a new owner�s individual style and taste.
Today sitting on the main southern route into York, about one and a half miles from the city centre and the A64 outer ring road, Curzon Lodge lies within a conservation area adjacent to York racecourse and the tree lined green open spaces of the Knavesmire. This wonderful local amenity, together with others in the area, offers the opportunity for a variety of recreational activities including walking, jogging, cycling and dog walking. Prior to it�s use in more recent years of providing guest accommodation, Curzon Lodge was home to one of the Terry�s chocolate family.
Having the additional benefit of the Stable Cottages, a further separate detached building being a converted former coach house and stable block, there is further multifaceted potential of use such as for multi generational living or home business.
To the rear of the property, the large lawned garden leads out from the patio with a vista of landscaped grounds, greenery and trees, creating a visually stunning backdrop to the far garden wall and beyond.
Surrounding the grounds of about half an acre, to the full extent of both the southern and eastern boundaries, Curzon Lodge lies adjacent to neighbouring National Trust grounds, at the heart of which lies the Grade I listed �Goddards House and Gardens�, the grand Arts and Crafts home built in 1927 for Noel Goddard Terry and his wife Kathleen. With the Stable Cottages building mainly occupying the northern boundary, properties of this size are rare and the owners enjoy a high degree of privacy and seclusion. These unexpectedly peaceful grounds have the added benefit of ample parking.
