These are some of the first pictures to emerge following the stunning renovation of an old police station in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

A piece of the spa town’s history is up for sale following the stylish overhaul of the old complex, culminating in the creation of a range of elegant and sophisticated apartments and houses.

The Old Police Station

The Old Police Station Harrogate, originally dreamt up by famous 1930’s period architect Percy Oates Platts, was built for the Claro Division of the local police in March 1930, and stood home to the local force up until a few years ago when this historic building was sold and officers relocated to new premises outside of town.

Since 2012, sympathetic renovation work to the Grade II-listed building has been carried out by a local development team and now, with work complete, a number of superb luxury abodes have been put on the market with prices ranging between £250,000- £895,000 for those looking to purchase a piece of Yorkshire history.

The development team’s missions was to retain the structures of all the original buildings but to breath some 21st-century life into the Old Police Station: introducing modern fixtures and fittings as well as luxury kitchens and indulgent bathrooms. 

The new apartments and houses boast imperious facades, and the new structures reflect an architectural formality and ‘gravitas’ suited to the merit of its former occupants.

With good links to northern cities like Leeds and York, property prices are amongst the highest in the region.

The North Yorkshire spa town, dotted with grand hotels and quaint tea rooms, is home to unique Turkish baths that were first opened in 1986 before being restored in 2004.
