If you and your loved ones are getting on top of each other during the restrictions, perhaps a move to somewhere with a bit more space might be a good idea.

Well, we might have found just the place.

This is Whinfield in Strensall – currently on the market for £2.95 million.

It is, very probably, the most expensive house in our area right now, and you get a fair amount for your cash, including:

  • five bedrooms
  • five reception rooms
  • seven bathrooms
  • a large garden
  • swimming pool
  • home gym
  • games room
  • cinema

And you’re only six miles from York city centre. You can find the full details on the Croft Residential website.

Extended and upgraded

The swimming pool

Whinfield once belonged to Henry Scott, a partner in the law firm Munby & Scott, which operated in York for 250 years before being taken over by Langleys.

The estate agents say: “Whinfield has been vastly extended and upgraded by its current owners into a modern family home over the last ten years.

“The property still has its original features in the older part of the house blending brilliantly into the 21st century aspects such as the huge kitchen area, swimming pool and cinema room.

“The scale and size of the house really has to be seen to be appreciated. The specification of the kitchen is of the highest quality and also benefits from lovely views out towards the manicured gardens.

“The games room could be used in a multitude of ways due to it having an office and shower room.”

So are you going to put in an offer?
