    About this property

    • 18 James Street is an attractive stone Grade II listed L shaped property in this sought after uphill location. The property has been vacant for several years and is in need of modernisation.
      The property is laid out over three floors and comprises large entrance hall with exposed beams and an impressive first floor room which Pevsner describes as “the upper chamber of the East lodging, a fine crownpost roof, a bracketed fireplace with joggle-jointed lintel, and next to it a narrow lancet”. It has a vaulted ceiling and exposed oak beams.

      There are many rooms with basins, shower rooms, bathrooms and a kitchenette. A view of the Cathedral can be seen from the first floor.

      There is off street parking within the courtyard and door access from both the courtyard and James Street. Subject to the necessary planning consents and covenants the property could convert into a very special house or split into multiple dwellings.

      Services Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Mains gas central heating.
      Photography June 2019.
      Viewing Strictly by appointment with Savills and no onsite parking.

    Subject to planning, this is a rare opportunity to create a very special residence or even residences so close to the iconic Cathedral.
