Properties of this standard are incredibly rare to come by. This elegant residence was converted to a holiday home in 2017 and no expense has been spared to create a stunning boutique property that’s just perfect to spend time in.

Just outside the patio doors there is a private courtyard area with bistro seating for some al fresco dining. Upon stepping inside you are greeted by the open plan nature of the downstairs living area with wooden flooring throughout. There is comfortable lounge seating for 4 people with a large, wall mounted LCD TV. The kitchen area is simply breathtaking and of the highest quality. It features granite worktops, an island with electric hob, fully integrated appliances, coffee machine, breakfast barstools and large fridge freezer.

The remainder of the downstairs area towards the rear of the property has the first double bedroom and also a shower room complete with a huge, luxury walk in shower.

A small staircase leads to the upstairs area where skylights really aid the amount of natural light coming in. There is a beautifully presented and spacious bathroom to the right hand side complete with a shower over the bath. The spacious master bedroom has a desk and office chair for anyone wanting to catch up on a bit of work. It’s fully carpeted throughout and is complete with fitted wardrobes and stylish, contemporary furnishings.

The apartment comes with permit parking just a few minutes walk away.

Micklegate Courtyard is in an excellent location. 5 minutes walk from the station and NCP carparks. The apartment is located to the rear of the front of Micklegate and is standalone from the other 4 apartments. The refurbishment is to an extremely high standard. When you walk in the downstairs open plan is makes a visual impact. The main seating area has a huge comfortable couch and a separate armchair. TV with wifi access for some Netflix, Youtube, others and all usual TV channels. There is seating for 4 at the kitchen island. We did sit two either side for sociable reasons. Not sure it were possible to fit in a small table and chairs. Kitchen had all you'd need if you wanted to eat in, induction hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher. There is a coffee machine if you wanted to use your own pods. There was a little welcome basket of Fairtrade tea bags, sugar milk and a small packet of locally blended cafetiere coffee, cafetiere also provided. Also a couple small bars of lovely local chocolate. The downstairs shower room and upstairs bathroom were both excellent standard. The drawer under the sink was good to put in toiletries and other bits. It is the only storage in the bathrooms. Each bathroom has a heated towel rail and underfloor heating. No door hooks (minor point). The downstairs bedroom is good size although it didn't have any storage other than a couple of coat hooks. A small set of drawers would be useful. There was a small desk/dresser with drawers outside the bedroom next to the bathroom if you wanted to sit down to do e.g. makeup. There is a rear door that has a gate to another property this gate is bolted shut from the apartment side. Up the stairs to the (enclosed) gallery bedroom. This is a lovely room. The bed is low to the floor and very comfortable. There are velux windows in this room and the bathroom. We did open them as being at the top of the apartment heat rises!! The room has two double wardrobes where we also found iron/ironing board if required and hairdryer. Again there is a small desk/dresser to sit at to do hair/make up etc. The bathroom is again a good side and the shower was lovely. The mirrors in both bathrooms have integrated lights which helps for e.g. make application. As well both bathrooms have light motion sensors so when you go in (or with the downstairs just past it) the light comes on... Useful in the middle of the night! In the locality we found two lovely small independent cafes highly recommend for breakfast FortyFive (which sells vinyl records as well) - https://www.fortyfiveuk.com/ wonderful poached eggs totally fresh (breakfast from 8am M-F and 10am S-S). About 4 shops down from the apartment. Just around the corner Teajuanas Cafe (Skeldergate) had breakfast there Saturday as Fortyfive yet to open. A customer encouraged us in and advised they sold the best Eggs Benedict in York, they were delicious. Two chaps very friendly. For dinner just across the road was Vaqueiros http://braziliansteakhouseyork.co.uk/vaqueiros-brazilian-steakhouse-menu/ Highly recommend this. They have a selection of meats that are cooked and skewered brought to your table and the slice off for you as you want. There normal dinner price is £24.95 per person. We managed the earlybird option being seated before 6:30pm and paid £19.95 per person. You have a slightly smaller selection of meats but still more than you could probably eat. Also early bird they had 2-or-1 on the Brazilian cocktails. Great evening. Another evening we ate at http://www.kapadokya-restaurant.co.uk/MainMenu.aspx. This Turkish restaurant is located in the street directly opposite the apartment, literally one minute walk. Again delicious food, with wine very reasonably priced. Recommend the hot starters to share, we had crevettes, beef sausages, mucver, lambs livers. For a brief respite from strolling we stopped at http://www.mrpscurioustavern.co.uk/ enjoyed a bottle of wine and the Old Hunt House Charcuterie Plate. Plenty for two and reasonable for four. The apartment is in an ideal location for enjoying a stay in York. The decor, furnishings and amenities are excellent. I would highly recommend it for a stay and definitely will book again when returning to York!
