Prev Next

Offered with the convenience of no forward chain, this large raised ground floor garden apartment within a period conversion boasts two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a private garden, a garage and has a charming mix of original features with a contemporary feel.

Situated on the wonderful Clifton Green, this large Victorian property was converted into five luxury apartments approximately ten years ago. Housed in a contemporary addition to the original property, the open lounge/dining room features a vaulted ceiling and free-standing log burner. With floor to ceiling windows under a slate roof, the design allows for plentiful natural light to flood the room and gives views on to the private garden.

The modern kitchen has contrasting wall and base units, granite worktops and Belfast-style stainless steel sink. Appliances include an electric oven and hob, extractor and integrated dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer.

The master bedroom features the original stunning floor to ceiling stained glass windows in the Arts and Crafts style and benefits from a modern en-suite shower room and large built-in wardrobe. The main bathroom serves bedroom two, which also has useful fitted storage and a large sash window.

The property can be accessed from either the front elevation via the grand communal entrance or privately to the rear. The enclosed private garden is a wonderful space with patio, decked area and well-stocked borders. The apartment also has the added advantage of a garage for secure parking and access to the communal garden.

In summary, a truly unique garden apartment on the sought-after Clifton Green within easy walking distance of the city centre and station.

Clifton Green is an attractive area of the city with a quality butcher, vintage tearoom, restaurants, gift shops and a chemist situated on a leafy green giving a real village feel close to the city walls. The renowned private schools of St Peter’s and Bootham are reachable on foot in less than ten minutes and the city centre is just beyond. The beautiful 14-acre Homestead Park, which is maintained by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, is just a short stroll away. The location is further enhanced by riverside walks close by.

Leaving the city on Bootham, continue for just under a mile to Clifton Green traffic lights. Turn left towards Water End and the property is on the righthand side, overlooking Clifton Green.
