A MOST CHARMING FORECOURTED PERIOD PROPERTY WITH NEARBY HISTORIC RIVERSIDE WALKS IN ONE OF YORKS MOST DESIRABLE LOCATIONS
Believed to date from the late 19th Century and constructed of attractive brick elevations under slate and pantile roofs, 99 Alma Terrace is one of a short terrace of just four similar properties lying at the western end of Alma Terrace, itself located in one of Yorks most desirable residential areas. Alma Terrace immediately adjoins the New Walk, the historic riverside walk which gives easy access to the city centre whilst just a short distance away lies the Millennium Bridge and its pedestrian access to Rowntree Park. There are local shops in nearby Fishergate. The property is ideally located for access to the city centre, the A64 and the University of York.
Over the years, the property has been upgraded and improved whilst at the same time retaining many original period features to include panelled doors, dado rails, period fireplaces, sash windows and Pine floors. Externally, the front elevation boasts dressed stone window cills, brick-on-end lintels and a modillioned eaves cornice.
