The Archive is a unique duplex apartment with its own entrance to the side of this landmark 19th century building designed by the architect Edmund Kirby. Built in 1895 and now Listed Grade II, this former Probate Registry and Archive has been cleverly converted and extended to form a deceptively spacious split level city centre home which forms part of the main building but feels more like a separate mews house. Highlights include:
• Particularly bright and beautifully appointed accommodation extending to almost 3000 sq ft
• 3 double bedrooms all with stylish en suite bathrooms over the ground floor and first floor, including wonderful master bedroom suite incorporating a mezzanine level dressing/sitting area.
• 26’ drawing room with 2 full height multi panel mullion windows overlooking the Memorial Gardens and the Minster.
• Substantial and well equipped Poggen and Pohl kitchen with underfloor heating, opening onto a 26' dining area with windows facing towards a private rear courtyard.
• A large private roof terrace with one of the best views of York Minster in the city and a further patio garden.
• Close to Dean’s Park Gardens, a green and well-tended park on the north side of the Minster, and home to the Cathedral Library.
Duncombe Place lies in the heart of the City of York just 100 yards from the west entrance of the Minster. Its glorious situation is second to none.
