Harrogate is consistently voted as one of the happiest places to live in the UK and was recently declared third most romantic destination in the world. The architecture in Harrogate is unrivalled throughout the United Kingdom, fine examples of which can be seen on St. George’s Road.

Despite being steeped in history, Harrogate is a buzzing spa town with unparalleled shopping and dining experiences. With Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty on your doorstep, St. George’s Road is a perfect base for exploring the local area.

St. George’s Road, on which our imposing and characterful house sits, is a stone’s throw from St. George’s Cricket Ground, where Harrogate Cricket Club has been playing since 1877. The street was generated as part of a major architectural development in the town during the late eighteenth century; which also included the clearing of 200 acres of land to create The Stray, which remains a spot for picnicking, kite-flying, outdoor games and local football matches. The Stray is just 12 minutes’ walk from 45 St. George’s Road.

St. George’s Road is situated in a prime residential address within close proximity of Harrogate town centre. The Cathedral city of Ripon is about 12 miles, the historic city of York 20 miles and the financial centre of Leeds 15 miles. The railway station at Harrogate is nearby and there are regular flights from Leeds Bradford Airport about 12 miles away.
