Tenure: Leasehold

Contemporary apartments, created within a distinctive period property, in a sought after residential location, a short stroll from York City Centre.
York is a city steeped in history, a heritage much enjoyed and appreciated by the residents. Having traced the history of The Keyes, it was exciting to find that this property had made its own contribution to that heritage. Built around 1830, it appears that the house was originally assigned to the nearby Imphall Barracks for use by the Royal Scots Greys, between 1801 and 1971. The regiment, which celebrates its anniversary on the 18th June each year, to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo, was fondly known as the bird catchers, a reference to their cap badge and motto "second to none".
To recognise this involvement "The Keyes" has been named after Colonel Charles Tasker Keyes, who not only won the country's highest award for bravery, the Victoria Cross, but did so as the youngest serving lieutenant in the army.
The property has had many subsequent changes and owners, more recently being operated as Olga's Guest House, named after the eponymous proprietor.
The current owner saw the potential of the building to convert into 9 apartments of generous proportions.
A comprehensive approach has been taken to the conversion and refurbishment, with many elements stripped back to basics and reinstated to an exceptional standard, surpassing the current regulated standards in insulation and sound proofing. This has also included the removal of chimney stacks, reroofing and an extension. Needless to say the quality fittings and finishes will complement a contemporary life style.
The architect has been skilful in the use of space and has ensured that each apartment has its individual character, providing bright and well lit spaces.
The developer, Paul James, admits this has been a demanding project for his team but nevertheless is confident that anyone viewing will be overwhelmed by the outstanding quality and aspire to have one of these apartments as their home or investment property.
