TWO luxury penthouse apartments are on sale in York for a combined total of £2.35 million.

A waterside home, situated at Marlborough Wharf on the banks of the River Ouse, has just gone on the market for £1.1 million.

At the same time, a fourth-floor apartment at Biba House in St Saviourgate is available with stunning views of York Minster and a “superb” living/dining/kitchen area, supplemented by two ensuite bedrooms, for £1.25million.

The riverside apartment features a private terrace and two private balconies, an extra large lounge with mezzanine study, a dining hall with sitting area, a large breakfast kitchen, a utility room, two bathrooms and three bedrooms.

Agent Crofts says it is “without question the finest penthouse apartment in York”.

It says Marlborough Wharf, above, was built in 2006 by the specialist developers Melhome and comprises 21 apartments.

“This large penthouse apartment was bought off-plan by the current owners, who made strategic changes to the proposed accommodation in order to enhance the property,” it said.

“These include the mezzanine study, making the entrance hall and dining room open plan and the creation of a utility room, which is rare for apartment living.”

Toby Cockcroft, of Crofts, said there had been “local, regional and international interest” in the apartment, and an offer had been made, although it remained on the market at present.

The Biba House apartment is one of 24 which have been created out of the old Hilary House tax office, which stood neglected for years.

Charlie Lancaster, of Lancaster Samms, which is jointly marketing the Biba House penthouse with Ashtons Estate Agents, said there had been considerable interest in the apartment, from both local people and from much further afield.

The apartment sales come only a year after York’s first £1 million penthouse was sold at the re-developed Bonding Warehouse, on the riverside near Skeldergate Bridge. The 2,232 sq ft duplex apartment offered three bedrooms, two-and-a half-bathrooms, a study, a TV room and a riverside balcony.
