Newport Place is an iconic Lincoln landmark building situated just to the north of the Roman Newport Arch.  Formerly the WH Clarke butcher’s shop, the Edwardian property has been sympathetically restored and converted, retaining many original features whilst incorporating contemporary, high specification features.  The luxury apartments are now being offered to let by Taylor Lindsey.


The location is within the prime Cathedral Quarter / Bailgate area of uphill Lincoln, very close to the historic Cathedral, Castle and Steep Hill and a stone’s throw from the prestigious Bailgate shopping area with its range of restaurants, bars and attractive shops.  The property now offers four newly converted, two-bedroom luxury apartments and a three-bedroom mews house, all with private on-site car parking. 


Taylor Lindsey Development Director, Dan Race, said ‘This building is a unique piece of Lincoln history and it is gratifying to see it restored and brought back to life’.  He continued: ‘Accommodation of this nature is rarely available to let in the Bailgate area of Lincoln; Newport Place offers accommodation with charm and character in an exceptional location’.


The property’s Edwardian exterior has been sensitively restored and, internally, features such as original period joinery, stained glass and Edwardian fireplaces have been complimented by modern, well-designed kitchens with high specification appliances and natural oak worktops.  Well-appointed bathrooms combine traditional sanitaryware and period cornicing to compliment the interiors. 


The attractive rear courtyard has been renovated and now provides private car parking.  All apartments on the upper floors have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, whilst the ground floor apartment has high ceilings, generous proportions and a large family bathroom. 


The separate mews house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms to the ground floor whilst the first floor features high ceilings and full height dormer windows with Juliette balconies providing a unique and spacious feel to the kitchen/diner and lounge.  Sizes range from 840 to 1,100 square feet and rents start at £950 pcm.
