Treasurer’s House


The history of the garden

When Frank Green bought the three houses that he used to create Treasurer’s House, he also changed their gardens to the basic layout you can still see today. The basic principles of his style was the contrast of grass, tree and old stone. When excavating for the sunken lawn, so much old masonry was found, Frank thought it must have been used as a stonemasons yard for the neighbouring York Minster.

 

Escape the city

The garden is a tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
