Northminster Limited purchased The Lodge & The Extern House at the former St. Joesph’s Convent on Lawrence Street, York in December 2017. The properties have lain vacant since the convent was closed in 2012 and have fallen into a state of disrepair.
Built between 1872 and 1875 these two Grade II Listed buildings were designed by the ecclesiastical architect George Goldie in a subtle Gothic revival style.
The Extern was completed in 1874 and housed the ‘extern’ Sisters, nuns who could leave the convent and interact with the outside world , as well as guests. The Lodge, the ﬁnal of the original buildings was completed in 1875, this was the domestic residence of the Priest that served the convent.
Located within two minutes walk of the City Walls, Northminster have secured planning permission to convert the existing buildings into 9 one and two bedroomed apartments along with a 2 bedroomed house. In addition the development will include 4 single bedroom new build houses within the grounds.
This high quality secure gated development will beneﬁt from the provision of generous landscaped communal gardens along with the provision of private garden areas for a number of the properties. 7 onsite car parking spaces will be available by way of separate negotiation.
Work on the development has now commenced and the properties will be available for sale with completion expected Spring 2020.
