Ideally set in a popular location of York city centre and surrounded by historical buildings, Space Property has one 1-bedroom and two 2-bedroom apartments to let in the modern Jacob Court development.


All of the properties have lovely spacious living areas, with a bright and airy feel thanks to the patio doors that lead out onto your own private balcony – you can use this space to put a table and chairs to enjoy the excellent views of the city and well maintained gardens; or create your own mini garden.

The open-plan living areas provide great versatility to use the space however best suits your lifestyle. The kitchen areas feature fully integrated appliances including fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and oven/hob, so you have everything you need in one convenient place.

The one-bed property has a generously sized bedroom that features a fitted double wardrobe, perfect for those with extensive clothing collections! The master bedrooms in the two-bed apartments also feature double wardrobes, and all bedrooms are fully carpeted to create a soft and cosy feel.

Another bonus of these apartments is that they have under-floor heating, so you can feel warm and snug on colder days! The building also has a secure entry system. The location and layout of these modern apartments is suited to young professionals who want to enjoy city centre living.


York is a great city to both live and work, and offers a mixture of history, culture and modern city living; and in these apartments, you’ll be just five minutes away from all of this!York1

Be stunned by the city’s beautiful historic buildings, especially the 13th Century gothic cathedral, York Minster. Visit top attractions such as the York Dungeons, National Railway Museum and many others. York also offers fantastic shops, restaurants and bars to spend your evenings and weekends.

Places to eat/drink

One of York’s finest restaurants, Melton’s, has both tasty food and reasonable prices, and each dish has a matching wine suggestion. Try Café No.8 for locally-inspired, unfussy bistro dishes, and Tarts and Titbits deli-café for honest home-cooked food and an exotic sandwich menu. Betty’s Tearoom is a must visit for the best cakes in the city.

A fan of craft beers? House of Trembling Madness is a specialist beer bar that also serves hot, filling dishes and picky platters to line your stomach. The Evil Eye Lounge serves premium alcohol and a wide array of cocktails in a quirky setting, whilst 1331 has an off-the-beaten-track style bar with relaxed dining lounge, and even a small sofa-filled cinema showing classic films. Well-known in the city, Biltmore Bar & Grill offers art deco and classy interiors, as well as delicious cocktails and dishes of pizza, pasta and ribs.


York has an eclectic mix of designer boutiques, high street names, independent shops and vintage stores. Independent outlet Fraser & May specialises in all things shabby chic, with everything from furniture to jewellery to vintage prints, and is a great place for unique gifts. Specialist home design store Snowhome offers loads of interesting little additions to your home, with a blend of contemporary and vintage.

Love a good bargain? Then you’ll regularly be venturing to the York Designer Outlet, just a few minutes from the city centre.  Find brands such as Kurt Geiger, Michael Kors, Nike and Ralph Lauren for great discount prices.

  1. Hi great post! I too am a fellow blogger, but in the very early stages! Currently, working my way through blogs to hopefully get started with linking in with other bloggers for support and gain more traffic and reach more people. Do have a peek at my blog, if you have the time. thank you Melanie 🙂


  2. Hi, sorry to pester, but wondered if you could help me out? Totally new at this! You followed my blog yesterday, but I have changed the name of my blog today, as I wanted it to not be restricted to one city. Do you lose followers when you change the blog name, as you are no longer there?! Btw its cool if you no longer want to follow, but just trying to sort out my state of confusion here 🙂 Thank you in advance
