DESCRIPTION An extremely spacious first floor one bedroom apartment forming part of the conversion of this Grade II Listed historic building in the centre of the town within easy walking distance of local shops and amenities and offering well presented and neutrally decorated accommodation with gas fired central heating.
Mauleverer House is a Grade II Listed building which was originally the home of the Mauleverer family before being converted into the Three Greyhounds Hotel, evidence of which can be seen on the frontage of the building. More recently it was converted to flats by Harrogate Borough Council who then leased the property to the Mauleverer House Management Company Limited (MHMC) in 1987.

Currently the maintenance fee is £85.00 per calendar month, which covers fire alarm, servicing, electricity consumption in the public areas, cleaning of the public areas and garden maintenance. The remainder is accrued to cover periodic decorating which is due to take place in late spring 2021.
