Exquisite townhouse with garden and double garage


The St Leonard's Place development is a flagship restoration
of an iconic building of national architectural importance,
returning the historic crescent to its original usage and glory in
a contemporary way. Situated within York's cultural heart, being
neighbours of the York Theatre Royal, York Art Gallery and York
Explore, the development is just steps away from the historic
Minster and the vibrancy and vitality of the City Centre, with
its array of independent shops, national brands, restaurants,
coffee shops and amenities. The Museum Gardens lies
immediately to the west of the crescent, set in the magnificent
surroundings of the ruins of St Mary's Abbey. The mainline
Railway Station is a short walk to the west, offering ease of
access to London (1 hr 48 mins fastest train to Kings Cross),
Edinburgh and beyond.
