A boutique collection of stunning apartments and houses, created from the redevelopment of a beloved landmark in the heart of York’s vibrant city centre.

The Story

The Old Fire Station on Clifford Street is an exceptional new development of one of York’s most famous landmarks.

The site includes seven luxury apartments (with unrivalled views of York’s iconic Clifford’s Tower) and seven stunning town houses.

The elegant historic facade of the former Trinity Chapel now The Old School House, has been retained to enhance the Peckitt Street residential frontage for three of the townhouses, while four more substantial homes have been created on Esplanade, with southerly views across the River Ouse.

This stunning development blends the history of York with contemporary design, cleverly retaining aspects of the original buildings, whilst providing new homes ideally suited to modern living.

A striking new building in the footprint of The Old Fire Station houses the apartments, with substantial glazing enjoying unparalleled views of Clifford’s Tower.
