Introducing Tudor Yard, a truly spectacular and historic development of 7 individual apartments situated in Banbury market place.

This stunning restoration has been meticulously designed blending 16th century features with a modern contemporary feel. A project that has carefully combined history with modernisation. The building boasts a Grade 2 star listing, one of only 2 buildings in Banbury to have been deemed so historically significant.

Access to Tudor Yard is through an impressive bespoke cast iron gate, where you will find a beautifully landscaped and illuminated courtyard with its natural sandstone paving and striking Acer tree.

Each apartment is unique, each one with its own character and charm. Expect high quality individual kitchens with integral appliances, traditional bathrooms and modern light fittings surrounded by original windows and staircases,  exposed brickwork, original timbers and internal doors dating back to the 19th and early 20th century.

From surviving the great fire of 1628 to being kept by the Robins family as an ironmongers for nearly 100 years, Tudor Yard now offers spectacular modern living with charm and character executed to the highest standard.

Taking inspiration from the Banbury town crest and historic connection to ironmongery they have created an impressive entrance that sets the tone for the rest of the development. 

Upon entering you walk through a covered passage with Sandstone paving and exposed stone and brickwork. A solid hardwood door gives access to flats 2,3 and 4.

The space is well illuminated with two Corten pillars at the base of the stairwell as well as wall mounted lighting. Meter cupboards can be found in a small passageway that also provides a separate gated access to the market place.
