Museum Street enjoys views up to York Minster and down towards the river Ouse. The entrance on Museum Street opens to a grand hallway with a majestic Regency staircase, elliptical and cantilevered with iron spindles, that sweeps upwards from the entrance to the second floor.

Apartment 4 is on the second floor, accessed via the staircase or a lift. It showcases some magnificent period features including high ceilings, a cast iron grate fireplace with wood surround, ornate cornicing and ceiling rose, and glorious restored 12-pane sash windows (some with acoustic glazing).

The contemporary kitchen has sleek, minimalist cabinetry with handle-less units, Cimstone Quartz worktops, a Siemens oven and induction hob, and a breakfast bar. It sits on the western corner of a large open living space with engineered oak timber flooring and magnificent windows giving southerly views over neighbouring St Mary’s Abbey, across the river and along Museum Street. The renovation and refurbishment of this apartment clearly respects the original architectural detail and elegant proportions of its heritage.

There are two double bedrooms with fine views and two bathrooms with high spec fixtures and fittings including marble tiling and heated towel rails.
