This distinctive merchants building in the heart of Malton has been skilfully converted into six outstanding, boutique apartments. The quality of this conversion cannot be underestimated: using ingenious design, the architect has created highly individual spaces that make the best use of the many architectural features of this 18th century property. Not only has the historical and cultural context of this building been upheld but contemporary five-star elements have been incorporated throughout to give a high end finish and original touches. The specification and design of the kitchens and bathrooms are of a quality more often associated with apartments found in London, Paris and Milan.
OUTSIDE The entrance to Chiltern Place is accessed off Spital Lane. Here lie the five parking spaces each with electric vehicle charging points. A secure wrought iron gate opens to give resident's access to the apartments and private garden courtyard beyond (shared use). York stone flags are underfoot and the south west facing courtyard area is beautifully landscaped with Portuguese laurel espalier trees and seating. From here is access down to the secure individual storage. Refuse storage and recycling are discreetly positioned out of sight.
