New homes in York. This is an exciting opportunity to live near the centre of a historic city.
Bootham Crescent is in the popular Clifton area of this fabulous cathedral city. The great bonus of choosing a new house or apartment here is that you can easily walk into the city centre. And what a city centre! York Minster is the highlight of the cityscape, the historic city walls go back to Roman times and the famous Shambles will delight you with cobbled streets, fabulous shops and boutiques, and so many cafés and restaurants to choose from, that you’ll just have to go back time and again.
The development here has a heritage to celebrate too. The old football ground will be remembered with a memorial garden which will cleverly incorporate a section of the terracing from the old Popular Stand, and a lovely open space for everyone to enjoy will be created from the original centre circle of the pitch.
2, 3 and 4-bedroom houses as well as 1 and 2-bedroom apartments will give plenty of options to a really wide range of buyers. This is going to be a happily balanced and welcoming community to become a part of, and it couldn’t be in a better location.
Bootham is within Clifton, just north of the city centre. Clifton is thought of as one of the best areas to live in York and it’s got so many amenities and facilities to make the most of. It’s almost like a mini city centre all of its own, with cafes, restaurants, cinemas, shopping, schools and parks. The local shops are all under a mile away and there’s a Co-op supermarket just 1 mile away. There are 8 primary schools within 2 miles, so that means plenty of choice for your children. York Hospital is just a mile away too, with the community support or 3 doctors’ surgeries within 2 miles.
You’ll be within walking distance of some of the best places to meet up with friends and family. Whether it’s showing off the historic landmarks near your new home, meeting up for a meal in one of the restaurants in the old heart of the city, or browsing in The Shambles for something special for your new home, York has it all.
York is firmly on the map and has a great network of road and rail routes to keep you well-connected. The A1237 and A64 create a ring road around the city that connects with all the main cross-country routes – the A59 to Junction 47 of the A1(M) and on to Knaresborough and Harrogate, the A19 all the way to Middlesborough and ultimately Newcastle upon Tyne, the A64 for Scarborough on the coast and Leeds inland, and the A1079 to Hull. York railway station is on the East Coast Main Line, with nationwide services from Edinburgh to London and just about everywhere in between.
