    About this property

    • Now known as The Residence, this iconic building is a true part of York's heritage. Formerly the Terry's chocolate factory, this Grade II listed building is now home to a selection of luxury apartments and penthouses, complete with concierge service.

      Apartment 124 is a beautifully designed two bedroom, south-facing duplex apartment offering space, light and convenience.
      On entry, the size of the living area quickly becomes apparent. With its high ceilings and large open plan living space illuminated by floor to ceiling windows, it's obvious why The Residence continues to be one of the most sought after developments in the York area.

      The high spec kitchen, featuring all the built in appliances needed for the modern home sits to the side of the dining space, with one side open to create a social feel, the perfect place for entertaining.

      Large French doors open on to the south facing balcony from the sitting area, overlooking greenery with views of the renowned York racecourse.

      The generously proportioned principal bedroom features south facing views, built in wardrobe space and a modern en suite complete with shower.

      Upstairs houses the family bathroom, leading on to the mezzanine bedroom. This space is perfect for accommodating guests or would make an ideal home office with plenty of space for a desk and work station.

    This is a beautifully presented apartment on the enviable south side of the building. The highlight for me is the deceiving amount of outside space on offer.
