This month will see the penultimate sales release at the prestigious St Leonard’s Place development, which will give homebuyers another chance to buy one of the finest homes ever seen in York City Centre.
The Grade II* listed iconic crescent is being transformed into a mix of grand town houses and stylish apartments, alongside new mews homes, all within York’s City Walls.
The seven properties in the penultimate sales release include a collection of spacious and distinctive two-storey homes as well as town houses and three of the elegant first floor apartments that offer stunning views over the City’s heritage.
Mark Finch, Director of Real Estate at Rushbond, the award-winning property group behind the development, says: “St Leonard’s Place is a very special development which has required a painstaking approach to restoration. It provides purchasers with a unique opportunity to live within one of the City’s finest buildings, yet offers modern-day comfort and style.
“The popularity of the development has been overwhelming, which shows the interest not only in St Leonard’s Place, but also in this part of the City as a superb place to live, with York Minster, the Art Gallery, and Theatre Royal, as well as fabulous parks and great cultural attractions, so close by.”
Tanya Coffey from the selling agents Savills in York, says: “The development has sparked the imagination of people not only from York and Yorkshire, but also from much further afield. Buyers have been attracted to the special feel of the City, and the fact that York is on the north-south international axis with easy access to London, Edinburgh and the rest of the UK.
“All of the properties at St Leonard’s Place are different in their own right - no two properties are alike. Blending heritage, high ceilings and plentiful light, with contemporary fixtures and fittings, makes these properties very desirable indeed. The houses offer an unrivalled opportunity for sophisticated new home living and this sales release also includes a collection of two storey apartments that maximise the extensive space and height to its very best. Most of the properties also come with dedicated parking.”
Mark adds: “More and more people are adopting a city centre lifestyle, and York’s special qualities make it one of the most desirable places to live such a life. It is particularly wonderful to see the investment plans for this part of the City coming to fruition - with the impressively redeveloped Art Gallery, the soon to be open re-vamped Theatre Royal and the new Archive Centre all complementing our investment in St Leonard’s Place.”
Tanya adds: “It’s a privilege to watch the development taking shape, seeing the attention to detail going into all the fine period detailing. Almost every window provides a different perspective of the City, and it is hard to choose between properties. We will be pleased to bring these stunning homes to the market place in March and it really is an opportunity not to be missed by buyers.”
The first properties are due to be completed and available for occupation in Summer 2016, with the development planned for full completion in Autumn 2016.
