An award winning conversion of a former coach house and stables with impressive eco credentials, forming a surprisingly spacious and stylish contemporary home in a peaceful corner of the city, just yards from the Museum Gardens and a short walk of the city centre.
Winner of the LABC North and East Yorkshire Building Excellence Award in 2013 for the best conversion, The Old stables is a unique city home providing stylish and beautifully appointed accommodation incorporating numerous energy saving features. Heating is provided by a ground source heat pump and solar voltaic panels which
supplement the electricity supply, the surplus being sold back to the National Grid
A heat recovery system has also been installed, this filters the steam recycles the hot air back into the bedrooms and living spaces. All of these innovations work in unison with underfloor heating which can be independently controlled on a room by room basis and a quality Bose home entertainment system complete with a cinema screen.
The property has been finished to a particularly high standard and offers surprisingly spacious and well balanced accommodation, ideally suited to modern city living. In addition to 3 genuine double bedrooms each with luxury en-suite bath/shower rooms, there is a versatile open plan living/dining room opening onto a stylish fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen opens out through retractable bi-folding doors to reveal a private
walled garden to the rear ideal for entertaining. Located to the front is a courtyard bordered by numerous shrubs. There is space to park 1 large car or 2 small cars to the front.
Tucked away in a quiet courtyard development just off Marygate, which runs parallel to the Museum Gardens, the property is just a short walk to the city centre and the mainline railway station. There a number of useful local shops on Botham and several prestigious schools.
