Lendal Tower is a medieval structure, it was built as part of the city’s original walls in 1299. Now, it’s a Grade I-listed building that’s been carefully restored, with a creaky spiral staircase taking you up four floors with three double bedrooms, views down the River Ouse, and – from a roof terrace at the top – sightings of the Minster and the ruined St Mary’s Abbey. Perfect for keeping an eye out for marauders – or just for toasting the sunset with a glass of wine.
Mr Q and I were told that this magnificent building was up for sale a few months ago and we looked at the estate agents details then spent the next few months wishing we could afford to live in this spectacular historical quirky tower. We didn’t win the lottery so we haven’t bought it. But if ever money were no object this would be the one for us. Its been refurbished to a very high standard and its location right in the very centre of York, a city we both love dearly, makes this a highly desirable unique property.
So we cant afford to buy the Lendal Tower…perhaps we will just rent it for a few days every so often so we can live our dream. If you get the chance to stay here…just imagine how green Mr Q and I will be.
