Many have tried to solve a local puzzle, set in the heart of Sowerby. The stunning 'Belgrave Terrace' a row of proud Victorian Terrace houses, with one of only a few open gardens in the Country, designed to offer residents unrestricted vistas. So why does the Terrace start with house number 3?
The answer may well remain a mystery, however for generations to come, the street will now be completed after a local property developer has sympathetically designed and built two luxurious terrace homes, concluding the development after 150 years.
This exclusive build not only offers traditional Victorian features with 21st century energy efficiency but also has been built using carefully selected locally sourced materials and local craftsmen. With Oak flooring and traditional style cornice work, every aspect of this project has been meticulously planned to offer buyers something truly special.
Belgrave Terrace is a unique street with outstanding features and heritage and is described in the Thirsk and Sowerby Conservation Area Planning document as "one of the best examples of Victorian domestic developments in the Conservation Area".
Two stunning new homes have been created, one of which sold off plan within weeks of the development starting, and the remaining property, number 1 Belgrave Terrace is now on the market with Belvoir.
This brand new, period style town house is within a Victorian red brick and slate terrace in an excellent location, ideally situated for Thirsk town centre, the railway station and all local amenities. Offering extensive and well appointed accommodation arranged over 3 floors, this Victorian style new home, built with 21st century energy efficiency, provides four spacious double bedrooms (two en-suite), two reception rooms and a large kitchen with NEFF appliances.
Anthony Garbutt from Belvoir Thirsk said, "This impressive development of just two bespoke individual homes has been built to complete the end of this well-established period terrace. Number 2 sold in weeks and we expect a great deal of interest in the remaining end of terrace home. This brings the terrace to completion, over 150 years after construction first began. It is an absolute privilege to be able to present 1 Belgrave Terrace."
Sympathetically designed with a spacious kitchen and plenty of living space in two reception rooms, ideal for modern living whilst retaining the desirable room sizes and proportions of an older property, this high specification home also features four large double bedrooms, 2 en-suites, house bathroom and guest WC.
The property has retained traditional features to the front elevation including ground floor bay windows, sash sliding windows and panelled front door complimenting the existing uniform appearance of the terrace.
1 Belgrave Terrace really is a very desirable home that has the added benefit of coming with a 10 year warranty. It's in a great location too, ideal for families with both primary and secondary schools within a few minutes walk and easy access to all the amenities and services Thirsk has to offer. It's also easily commutable due to its proximity to the railway station and easy access to the A1 with major towns and cities such as York, Harrogate, Leeds and Newcastle only a short drive away.
