About this property

  • Built in circa 1870, Foss Bridge House is a landmark Grade II listed building of notable Victorian architecture, famously home of Stubbs ironmongers for almost a century. The building was converted in 2007 and offers a full lift service and secure undercroft parking.

    This impressive apartment sits on the second floor and is one of only six apartments in the building. With striking high ceilings, full height windows and beautiful period features this spacious apartment offers just over 1,200 square feet of lateral living accommodation.

    The superb sitting room extends to almost 20 foot, with large windows and a feature fireplace, doors open to a sunroom and on to the roof terrace. There is a separate spacious kitchen and plenty of storage is afforded by two cupboards in the entrance hall.

    The principal bedroom suite has access to a well appointed en suite bathroom, in addition there is a further double bedroom and house bathroom.
