11c Castlegate, York YO1 9RN
Castlegate is one of York’s most prestigious Georgian streets, largely attributed to John Carr, the best architect in the north of England at the time. The property dates from the 1760s and, being constructed for an owner of note, was obviously built to make a lasting impression. Flat C is reached via a grand entrance that opens on to a hallway and impressive staircase hall with period tiles and a sweeping staircase.
• 11c is a two bedroom garden flat on the first floor with its own private steps and front door.
• High ceilings throughout, original stripped floorboards (hidden), fireplaces and fabulous sash windows with shutters
• Spectacular sitting room with two sash windows that let in an abundance of light and a marble fireplace incorporating a contemporary multi-fuel stove
• The entire flat has the benefit of an in built sound system.
• Modern kitchen overlooks the gardens, blending walnut fitted units with stainless steel, NEFF cooking units
• A stout door creates a useful separation between the living and bedroom accommodation.
• Large and light bathroom with a useful utility cupboard that provides a concealed area for the washing machine and tumble dryer
• Stone steps lead down to a large, communal garden at the back of the property. The garden is well screened and peaceful with wide, sunny areas of lawn alongside richly planted flower beds, shrubs and shaded spots under a mature tree canopy. There is a view towards neighbouring Grade I Listed St Mary’s Church, and a pedestrian gate that leads to Coppergate at the rear.
