The redevelopment of the Old Fire Station in York has been finalised by the York-based developers the Helmsley Group and London Ebor Developments, with Caddick Construction, as luxury apartments and riverside townhouses are completed.
The development incorporates seven apartments and seven townhouses within the historic Old Fire Station and adjoining riverside land.
Six apartments and five townhouses are available, with prices from £595,000. The building dates back to 1856 when it was built as Trinity Chapel, before its conversion to a fire station in 1938.
Fronting the River Ouse, the super-high spec interiors, balconies and river views have helped to earn the, four-bedroom homes a £1.2m price tag.
A spectacular launch event in February with a display featuring fire-eaters and fire engines, referenced the site’s history at the heart of the city.
Toby Cockcroft, Director, Croft Residential, the York agency which, along with Carter Jonas, is marketing the Old Fire Station development, said, “It’s exciting to see this stunning development reach completion. There are always sensitivities around giving a historic building a new lease of life, but the Helmsley Group and London Ebor Developments have done a fantastic job.”
Ed Stoyle, Head of Residential Sales at Carter Jonas York, said, “The original features that have been sympathetically and elegantly retained throughout the development, coupled with the unrivalled views of the river and Clifford’s Tower, make these homes a unique proposition for the York property market.
