"A YORK developer's conversion of a semi-derelict garage/workshop into a New York-style home has won a national award for best renovation in the UK"

A stunning conversion of former industrial workshop buildings providing a significant 4 bedroom property evocative of a New York Loft Apartment with in excess of 4,000 square feet of space; including a large roof garden, garage/workshop and plentiful secure parking. Celebrating the drama of this former industrial space, this beautifully remodelled and versatile workshop conversion is arranged over 2/3 floors with over 3,200 square feet of beautifully appointed living space and a further 1,000 square feet of covered parking/leisure/garage/workshop area.

Contemporary and individually designed The Black House is unashamedly dramatic whilst working beautifully as a comfortable and significant living space. This striking and sophisticated property has been cleverly designed by an award winning developer and is a true one off; managing to surprise and impress in equal measure.
The unassuming exterior provides exceptional levels of privacy and seclusion and is conveniently positioned on Heslington Lane. Access is via a covered walkway which provides secure parking for several cars and unexpectedly doubles as a drive in movie theatre with projector. A generous workshop/garage with powered turntable, belfast sink and plentiful storage is ideal for for car lovers.

The inner entrance is via a full height hidden door which leads to a dramatic open hallway with feature oil drum chandelier and bespoke steel cantilever staircase. The layout is versatile and well considered, the 'upside down' style making the most of the property's original features to the first floor. This expansive space sits under a pitched roof with an array of stunning timbers and a long run of skylights and windows ensuring the light levels are superb. The design masterfully blends a mix of salvaged wood, exposed brick walls and original timbers. This two - tiered living space is cleverly utilised with a large sitting room in two halves one with a statement industrial style Bruno wood burner. Full height glazed sliding doors give access to the sizeable walled roof garden which gives a real sense of inside outside living and incorporates a stunning living wall and continues the sense privacy with roof-top views; East/West facing it is designed to attract the best of the light and sun, as well as making a very attracive focal point.

The upper tier breakfast-kitchen and dining room is perfect for entertaining, and has been designed to create sight lines and elevated views over the living area towards the roof garden with its feature 'living wall'. As with the whole of the conversion, the kitchen has been cleverly chosen to fit with its environment; of German design, the sleek stainless steel and polished concrete finish is both stylish and functional, with hidden appliances and top of the range Italian Bertazzoni ovens and induction hob.
A reclaimed over-sized timber sliding door gives access to the guest suite, with fitted wardrobes, dressing area and twin shower room with floating sink. Further light comes from opaque glazed sections in the floor above which offers a variety of uses inclusing home office/studio/music room etc.

The remainder of the living space is to the ground floor which features under-floor heating and provides two large double bedrooms served by a luxury house bathroom with walk-in shower and bath. The master bedroom is hidden behind a vast floor to ceiling door and enjoys access to a private courtyard area. There is plentiful storage with bespoke mirrored wardrobes and a stunning en suite bathroom with large walk in shower and feature free standing bath.

Externally this uniquely unassuming property is accessed from Heslington Lane. Making it an ideal 'lock up and leave' and providing a real sense of privacy and security. It is situated perfectly for access to the A64, City Centre, the railway station and the university and is close to the fantastic amenities on Fulford Road.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.
