Luxury apartment and stylishly refurbished throughout to provide a luxury finish whilst retaining 16th century original features and boasting views of York Minster and great attractions on the doorstep
This stunning 16th-century apartment in the heart of the walled city of York is ideal for couples or families wanting to explore the sights of the city and the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. Situated above an artisan delicatessen in the city centre, you are surrounded by independent shops and eateries amongst the cobbled streets, as well as having views of magnificent York Minster. You're also within a few hundred metres of York's many interesting attractions. Beyond the walls, there is some picturesque countryside to be explored on foot or by bike, with the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty approximately 15 miles north and the Nidderdale AONB approximately 30 miles west.
As its age would suggest, this charming apartment is packed with original features, but these are blended seamlessly with contemporary style and decor to create a luxurious apartment. Whilst exposed beams, wooden panelling and exquisite fireplaces add character, the crisp white walls and neutral palette make it feel bright and fresh throughout. Occasional pops of colour add comfort and interest.
After ascending the staircase past the delicatessen below, you will find yourself in the kitchen/diner. This light and airy room is well-equipped with everything you'll need to cook up some tasty treats. It has bespoke cabinets and an interesting breakfast bar for dining at. Moving through the lounge, you will appreciate the sense of comfort. Its focal point is the beautiful fireplace and open fire, whilst velvet-effect sofas in a range of rich colours invite you to sink into them. Once again, exposed beams in the walls remind you of the apartment's heritage. There is the added bonus of a piano in this room for those with an inclination to tinkle on the ivories.
Also on this floor is one of the two bedrooms. This double room has magnificent wall-panelling painted white for a contemporary twist and the sumptuous curtains add to the sense of grandeur.
The peaceful master bedroom is upstairs with a king-size bed. The vaulted ceiling adds space and light, but there is restricted height in places.
Outside there is a small seating area and an outbuilding down the stairs housing a washing machine. There is no parking included with the property.
