Historic York.

York, a compact walled city divided by the River Ouse which runs right through its heart, is steeped in history and can trace its roots back 2,000 years to the Romans, Vikings and Medieval Kings and Princes of Christian England. The whole city is a living monument to a justifiably proud era. World-class attractions, museums and galleries are testomy to a glorious past. The Gothic splendor of York Minster and the ruins of the ancient Castle are unparalleled outside of the Capital. The Bar Walls of York are not only the finest and most complete of any town in England, they are also the longest. The two hours it takes to walk them disappears as you are engrossed in the experience. Whilst York has one foot proudly in the past, the other is firmly in the present. The city enjoys a lively cafe bar and restaurant scene, with some of the finest eateries in the country, a vibrant entertainment and festival programme catering for every cultural taste and all year round award winning attractions. The youthfull energy and spirit of the city compliments the ambiance of yesteryear.

The Square

An examplary example of a City garden Square. The Square offers a fine selection of three, four and five bedroom townhouses bordering the garden spare and two bedroom apartments following in the same elegant architecture. The Square recreates the classical beauty of a City garden square, providing an enviable combination of fine architecture, elegance and style, one of the first to be laid out in recent years, combining the prestige of a Nixon Homes development with a quintessential location.
The Square is situated in one of the most desirable leafy locations in York, bordering green belt to the East; it lies between The Knavesmire and the A64 and yet is only 2 miles from the City centre. There are excellent local facilities and transport inks within walking distance. From The Square access to the City is by one of the finest tree lined avenues in Yorkshire taking in The Knavesmire, site of York Racecourse and The Mount and then passing through Micklegate Bar and inside York's magnificent city walls.


Garden squares were laid out during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries with the houses surrounding them becoming more desirable and sought after over the years. The Square is a recreation of the past, incorporating features that are rarely seen today, with high ceilings, large double doors, fibrous cornice, balconies and well proportioned rooms, the standards of finish are exemplary throughout. Sophisticated tree lined terraces with formal herbaceous borders provide the setting for the garden square.


From York proceed out of the city along Blossom Street, leading onto The Mount and Tadcaster Road. At the roundabout continue straight ahead and then turn left into The Square.
