York

£500,000

Freehold

A remarkable 18th century freehold property, choicely located within the city walls and just moments from Yorks historic Minster. The property is in need of extensive updating and will particularly appeal to experienced developers/builders (SEE VIEWING NOTES). The property has remained relatively untouched since the early 1980’s and is likely to require connection to mains utilities. Arranged over two floors, the well-balanced property offers accommodation of almost 1700 Sq Ft and has retained some original features.

An entrance vestibule leads to the principal accommodation including a lounge and separate dining room. A kitchen to the rear includes a courtesy door onto the rear courtyard. To the first floor are three good sized bedrooms and house bathroom.

In summary, an opportunity to redevelop a historic property in undoubtably one of the city’s best locations.

Aldwark is a small and select residential area tucked away within the city walls, close to Kings Square and The Shambles. York is famed for its city walls and York Minster, one of Europe’s largest cathedrals of its kind, and is one of the country’s most visited locations, attracting those looking to take advantage of the many restaurants, bars, historic and cultural attractions the city offers. The mainline train station offers services to London in under two hours and road links mean nearby cities such as Leeds and Harrogate are easily reached.

DIRECTIONS

As you enter the city walls through Monk Bar, take the first left onto Aldwark. Turn right again briefly into Margaret Philipson Court and the property is on the right hand side.

VIEWING NOTES

Due to the works required and for health and safety, viewings are strictly at pre scheduled weekly times with the agent. Viewings should only be undertaken by those with a serious interest and funding in place. We have a duty of care to test the market for a period of time and would recommend a full structural survey prior to exchanging contracts.

AGENTS NOTE

The commercial refuse bins for the neighbouring development have been removed digitally for marketing purposes.

Lancaster Samms are by far the best Estate Agents I have ever worked with

Neil really went the extra mile in getting my mum’s house on the market and then getting it sold.

Neil was knowledgeable, reassuring, hard-working, and incredibly thoughtful to both us and the buyers. I cannot recommend his services highly enough.

Elkie was absolutely brilliant from start to finish

I recently bought a house through Lancaster Samms.  My estate agent was Elkie. She was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. An absolute joy to deal with, so much so I would now consider her a friend.  She was so professional keeping me in the loop of a very long probate sale.

Over the course of many months, Elkie met me at the house several times so that I could organise the future renovation work. She was always happy to help.
House buying can be overwhelming sometimes however Elkie always made me feel calm and she was a pleasure to work with.

I am now the owner of the house that I fell in love with on day one. I couldn’t be happier!

Amazing and professional service from start to finish at a hard time for our family

Just sold my late mums bungalow with Elkie from Lancaster Samms.

Amazing and professional service from start to finish at a hard time for our family. Would 100% recommend using them .
Thank you once again Elkie for going over and beyond to make the selling process stress free.

Mrs V Clint

We felt like we were Elkie's only customers

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Elkie at Lancaster Samms for the highest standard of customer service she provided during our sale.

We had the smoothest, no stress sale you could possibly have wanted, couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Elkie lead us through the whole process from beginning to end with ease.  She was always contactable, never left us hanging and kept us updated throughout, no matter how small the detail.  She answered all our questions, no matter how trivial.

We highly recommend Elkie and Lancaster Samms as the Estate Agents to go to.

Vendor

Lancaster Samms are pure gold.

A good estate agent is like gold dust – rare, hard to find but extremely valuable.

Lancaster Samms are pure gold. Professional, timely, proactive, trustworthy and a million miles apart from your ‘typical’ estate agents. I would absolutely use them again. Special mention to Elkie, our closer, who is the Ray Donovan of the York real estate community i.e. a professional fixer. I imagine a significant number of conveyancing transactions have completed only because of her expertise in helping sellers (and buyers) navigate an often frustrating process.
