Every now and again an opportunity comes along to buy one of Harrogate’s landmark Strayside properties and we are thrilled to be marketing one such historic Georgian home.
With stunning views and a fascinating history, this double-fronted house on York Place dates back to circa 1780 and has Blue Plaque status.
The Russian Princess George lived in the property during the 1800s and Florence Nightingale stayed nextdoor during a visit to the town.
Overlooking the renowned 200 acre Harrogate southern Stray, this apartment occupies the ground and lower ground floors of an imposing Grade II listed building.
It is being sold with the freehold of the building, subject to two long leases to the flats above.
The accommodation currently comprises of hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen with rear lobby, WC and utility. Master bedroom with en-suite shower room, guest bedroom and house bathroom on the ground floor. There is a large integral garage with rear courtyard for entertaining and additional parking if desired. There is also the opportunity to park two cars to the rear of the property, one in front of the garage and one in front of the gates.
On the lower ground floor is a series of rooms, suitable for conversion to additional accommodation. Planning permission and Listed building consent has been approved to add four further en-suite bedrooms or, to divide the property into 2 vertical duplex apartments. Both will also have access from the front and rear of the property and parking, one with the benefit of the garage. (Full plans available on request).
