York luxury home sells within weeks for £1.85million

A Helmsley development called King’s Guinea, a brand-new Georgian-style house in York which went on the market for £1.85 million, has sold within weeks.

The luxury home, called King’s Guinea, which has been built in neo-classical style in the grounds of the former Knavesmire Manor Hotel in Tadcaster Road, was put up for sale earlier this year.

John Reeves, Chairman at the Helmsley Group, who purchased the old hotel – itself set to be turned into a grand family house – and then achieved planning permission for the new house, spoke of his delight at the fast sale.

“Obviously we are delighted that a buyer for this fantastic house was found so quickly both for the buyer, who has gained a unique home, our clients, whose faith in building this one off house was justified, and York generally, as it shows the massive attraction of the beauty and facilities that York has to offer to the discerning buyer,” he said.

“There is no doubt York can offer one of the best places to live in the North.”

The 5,000+ square ft property, approached along a private drive, has been described as a modern interpretation of the traditional Georgian country house, situated in a largely walled garden.
