THE FIRST homes are now available to reserve at St Leonard’s Place, in the heart of York’s Cultural Quarter, where work is underway transforming the landmark crescent building back into the region’s most prestigious residential address.

Yorkshire property group Rushbond, and contractor Hall Construction, started work earlier this year transforming the historic Grade II* listed crescent into five elegant townhouses and 29 grand apartments. Six mews style properties are also being developed off Museum Street, adjacent to the main crescent building.

Savills in York is marketing the development and the initial sales release consists of a selection of properties, with apartments and mews homes being priced from £267,500 and townhouses starting from £1,580,000.

Mark Finch, director of Real Estate at Rushbond, the award winning property group which has an impressive track record of restoring stunning listed buildings, says: “When it was built in the 1830s, St Leonard’s Place was one of the finest residential addresses in the North of England.

“Our plans are to reinstate this position, through a development which offers an extensive mix of homes to appeal to all types of buyer, who aspire to live in a home that not only meets an exceptional standard but forms a key part of York’s unique history and heritage. It’s also an exciting time for York’s Cultural Quarter as a whole.”

The York Art Gallery is due to reopen in August following a significant investment programme.
