Knights Yard flats mix old and new

Flat 4 – High Baliffs Chambers – with one of the signature windows


Anyone wanting to take a look at how the redevelopment of the former Knights department store has turned out can have a look through photos of the six new flats on a marketing website.

Heritage features have been preserved in the Grade II listed building, which was an 18th century coaching inn before serving as  department store for over a hundred years.

The store closed in January 2016, and the site was bought by St Dominics Properties, part of the EPF group, which then carried out extensive renovations.

Waterstones and Oliver Bonas moved into the two ground floor shops in 2018.

The six flats located on the upper floors and at the rear comprise: 3 x one-bedroom, 2 x two-bedroom and 1 x three-bedroom.  Guide prices run between £335,000 and £595,000.

In one of the flats, “Drapers”, original fitted wardrobes from the early 1900s that were used to store fabrics have been retained.

An open day is running on Saturday 27 July 2019, 12 noon – 3pm, with registration via the Knights Yard website.
