Elm Bank
Elm Bank
Large house built around 1870 designed by York architects J B and W Atkinson. It changed hands in 1892 and then in 1898, with the new owner being Sidney Leetham, who owned a large flour mill on the River Foss. He commission the local architects W G and A J Penty to remodel it; Penty and Penty had already designed Leetham's flour mill in 1896. They in turn brought in George Walton to work on the interior decorations. Walton had worked for some time in Glasgow as a contemporary Charles Rennie Mackintosh and was a proponent of the Art Nouveau style. The Art Nouvueau decor in Elm Bank is the only extensive example of this style in York and is considered to be one of the finest and most complete surviving in England. For this reason the building is grade II* listed - see LinkExternal link. IT is now a hotel.
