This attractive three-bedroom Grade II listed townhouse with fabulous views of the River Ouse, private garden and a much sought after parking space.

Partially constructed from the historic city walls and quietly tucked away down a cobbled street along side the Museum Gardens Lendal Hill House is a three-storey townhouse abutting the northeast side of Lendal Tower, an ancient scheduled Monument which once formed part of the City of York’s defences.

Built of dark red brick with a clay pantile roof and dissected by pretty dormer windows, the building itself dates from the late 18th Century and still benefits from a number of characteristics from that era.

Formerly leased to the York Waterworks company and also used as a Public Baths in the late 1700s when the adjoining Lendal Tower was the key water supply to the City of York, the property in more recent years has been converted into a unique property which boasts magnificent views of the River Ouse across the rear garden

Although the external appearance of the building has remained largely unchanged the current owners have carried out a comprehensive programme of refurbishment and the results are mesmerising.

The ground floor offers a dining room and a breakfast kitchen – a stunning room with three big windows overlooking the garden.

Upstairs to the first floor which boasts a spacious versatile reception room with an archway leading from one bright living area to another and with deep windows giving great riverside views. There are a further two bedrooms and a shower room on this floor. One of these rooms could make an ideal home office.

On the third floor, you will find a superb master bedroom suite with, again, two separate areas running into each other (one could be a fabulous dressing room) and another bathroom. More wonderful river views from the master bedroom and a feeling of utter luxury and space.

Superbly sited within the famous city walls, a stone’s throw from the station with beautiful streets, award-winning restaurants, delicious delis’, cafes and bars this really is an exciting and enviable opportunity to live in a charming property in the city centre.

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
  • Their wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • They offer more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • They can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • They are typically easier to get in contact with, and are less bureaucratic.

However advantages of working with your bank are:

  • You may be able to build off an existing relationship (and gain discounts if you have a checking or savings account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Banks may be more accountable than a smaller shop
  • They may offer lower interest rates in some cases
  • Their ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When you see a property you are interested in on our website, call us 24/7 to arrange a viewing. Or if you prefer, get in touch via our website and we will call you back to find a time to view the property that suits you.

Once you’ve found a property you want to buy, it’s time to make an offer. 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.

If you have a property to sell, why not see how we can help you.
