And now independent Yorkshire residential letting specialists Linley & Simpson is reporting that the crowning of the first home-grown Wimbledon champion for 77 years is helping to serve up extra interest in a five-bedroom detached property on Tennis Court Lane at Tollerton, near York.
Originally the village school, ‘Hide and Seek Cottage’ has been converted into a family home with separate annexe and courtyard garden available at a monthly rent of £1,495.
Kathryn Burton, manager of Linley & Simpson’s branch in Micklegate, York, said:
“Whether it’s all the publicity about Wimbledon and the Murray factor or not, his history-making victory has coincided with a rise in internet searches of the property.
“It’s a property with real character, perfectly located to the North of York with easy access to the A1, A19 and just a 15 minute drive into the city centre.”
Ironically, despite the street name, Tollerton Tennis Club is located in another part of the village – off Newton Lane.
