NEW INSTRUCTION - An absolutely stunning and luxurious duplex apartment providing stylishly appointed accommodation of impeccable quality, occupying a fantastic Strayside setting in a highly sought after residential area within easy walking distance of central Harrogate.
The position and setting which the apartment occupies is hard to improve upon, located as it is in Beech Grove – arguably the best residential address in Harrogate.
Harrogate is a beautiful Spa town which has been crowned the happiest place to live in Britain several times, with its healing mineral waters, excellent schools, beautiful parks and the famous Bettys Café Tea Room. Harrogate is also a tourist destination and its visitor attractions include RHS Harlow Carr Gardens, the Royal Hall and the Harrogate International Centre. Nearby there is some outstanding scenic countryside including the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Beauty.
For the commuter, there is easy access to the North and West Yorkshire business centres including Leeds, Bradford and York. Mainline railway stations in both Leeds and York (connections are available from the station in central Harrogate) provide Intercity services to London’s Kings Cross and Leeds/Bradford International Airport is within a 30 minute drive.
Occasionally, a property of exceptional quality comes to the market and the sale of this apartment is a perfect example. The apartment has been completely refurbished to exacting standards and will particularly appeal to those seeking high quality apartment living with luxury very much in mind. No stone has been left unturned in the refurbishment which includes new double glazed windows throughout, zoned underfloor heating, top of the range appliances and fixtures and fittings, remote control convector fires, Sonos surround sound and CAT 5 cabling.
The superbly proportioned accommodation is arranged over the ground and lower ground floors of this impressive Victorian building and extends to almost 3,200 sqft (295 sqm). The ground floor has been skilfully planned and designed with entertaining very much in mind with a central reception hall, cloakroom, drawing room and an impressive L shaped open plan sitting room, breakfast kitchen and dining room. The bespoke kitchen, by Stephen Neall Interior Designers, is a stunning feature with solid maple hand painted units, Arebescato marble worktops and an array of top quality appliances including a Wolf range cooker with double oven and extractor over, further Wolf ovens, a Sub-Zero wine cooler, Miele dishwasher and a Quooker boiling water tap.
A contemporary staircase with glass balustrading leads to the lower ground floor where there is further impressive accommodation including the principal bedroom with ‘his and her’ dressing rooms and a luxurious en suite bathroom, a guest bedroom with an en suite bathroom, a cinema room/third bedroom and a gym/study.
