This superb two bedroom penthouse apartment is part of the development of the Rowntree Chocolate Factory and boasts views towards The Minster from your own private roof terrace.

This property was one of the first to be snapped up when the development was released and due to a change in circumstances the apartment is now available for the contract to be reassigned. The development is due for completion early 2024.

The property will be placed on the top floor of the historic building and will feature a very high level of finish throughout and bright, spacious living accommodation filled with light via large windows. This particular property also offers the huge advantage of two allocated parking spaces.

Accessed via a secure communal hallway there will be either a lift or a staircase to reach the sixth floor. Once inside the property the heart of the home is a generous open plan lounge/diner and fitted kitchen. The living area gives ample space for both dining and relaxing, and a set of French doors open onto the fabulous roof terrace. The kitchen has a range of tasteful wall and base units, high end built-in appliances and an island unit. The roof terrace is south facing so will enjoy the sun the majority of the day and looks across the city towards The Minster. Back inside there is a main bedroom with access to a contemporary bathroom. There is a then a second double bedroom with a further en-suite shower room.

Outside the development in addition to the two allocated parking spaces area spacious communal gardens. The development will also boast the advantages of a concierge team and long term a community shop and café will be introduced.

The Cocoa Works is a leasehold development. The lease length for the apartment will be 999 years from completion of the property. The service charges will be £2.66 - £3.05 per square foot, per annum. These can be paid either quarterly or annually and will be reviewed annually against the retail price index. These prices will be reviewed before completion.

The annual ground rent* will be £150 for two bedroom apartments. The ground rent will increase by the original amount every 25 years.

Due to the leasehold reform (ground rent) act 2022 we anticipate there will no longer be a ground rent charge.

The property will be connected to a mains electricity supply, with mains water and sewerage supplied by Yorkshire water. For information on the broadband types available in the area, mobile availability at the property, please either check the Ofcom website or contact the office for specific details and suppliers available.
