Luxurious living within a distinctive period house, a riverside stroll from York city centre.

Alma House, a 19th century former Victorian police station, superbly revived and transformed for luxurious modern-day lifestyles. The property as it stands today is the result of an extensive renovation and redesign project, expertly overseen from start to finish. Whilst its distinctive façade remains, the internal structure has been completely rebuilt to current standards, sensitively acknowledging the building’s original features and incorporating contemporary design.

With innovation at its heart, the property boasts smart technology and convenience; Nu-heat underfloor heating and Cat6 cabling throughout, Loxone home automation system, MHRV ducting, a commercial grade hot water system, double-glazed timber sash windows with Resstende electric blinds and curtains, and electric Velux roof-lights.

Every room exudes style and sophistication. An unmatched eye for detail, great care and attention has been paid in selecting individual fixtures, fittings and floorings, with no expense spared. All of exceptional quality, many have been sourced from high-end Italian designers: Listone Giordano wooden floors, Graniti Fiandre marble and hard floorings, Davide Groppi light fittings, Antonio Lupi and Ex.t, bathrooms with Aquaelite SPA systems, and an Abimis commercial grade kitchen. Unique artwork is displayed throughout, blending with thoughtfully positioned lighting and carefully chosen colour palettes.

Approaching 4000 square feet, the accommodation is generously sized with elegantly proportioned rooms. The layout lends itself to a variety of residential and/or commercial opportunities; first designed as a successful private-house hotel with 3 luxurious suites, and specialist culinary and wine experiences, but equally easily reverted to a substantial 5-bedroom family home. The ground floor offers a potential annex with separate external access, providing options for multi-generational living, home-office space, or an income stream via AirB&B. Externally, there is a south-facing walled courtyard area to the rear, driveway parking for 2-3 vehicles and an electric car charging point.

Additionally, there is a detached 2 bedroom coach house (1A Carey Street) which can be purchased by separate negotiation.

Alma Terrace is located in the Fulford area of York, with riverside walks into the city centre and via the Millennium Bridge to Rowntree Park and Bishopthorpe Road. Fulford itself benefits from a wide range of local amenities and lies within the catchment area of Fulford School, rated outstanding by Ofsted. It also offers easy access to the railway station, and to the A64 and wider road network for travel further afield.

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.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
