Northminster - The Maltings
Purchased by Northminster Limited in 2015 the building has been carefully refurbished to provide 6 high quality 2 & 3 bedroom residential units incorporating many original features of the building including original timber trusses, the malt bin doors, and Victorian cast columns. All accessed from the stunning 20ft high open 3 storey entrance atrium housing the original working machinery including the Nalder & Nalder seed dressing machine, bucket lift elevator, steep, grain hopper and ‘taking in’ door winch machinery, all arranged over the original quarry tile floor. Meanwhile at the southern entrance there is located the original H. J. H. King furnace, it is the survival of this early King furnace which makes this building so important as it is thought to be the only one of its kind.
Northminster have gone to great lengths to respect the heritage of this building enabling home owners to enjoy the historic industrial past in the comfort of modern contemporary homes in what must be one of York’s most sought after Bishopthorpe Road locations.
