Eclectic Music, Maister House, 160 High Street, Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU1 1NQ
Maister House is the only property in East Yorkshire owned by the National Trust and is not normally open to the public
This Georgian house sits on the west side of High Street in the 'old town' area of Hull. It represents one of the few surviving reminders of the thriving Baltic Sea Trade enjoyed by the port of Hull in the 17th and 18th Centuries.
After a tragic fire had badly damaged his earlier house, in 1743 wealthy Hull merchant Henry Maister commissioned architect Joseph Page to design a new one for him.
The exterior result is a plain brick facade that reflects the typical Palladian architectural fashion of the mid 18th Century. However, external simplicity contrasts with interior opulence which the Historic England listing description concludes "is of importance both locally and nationally" The visual highlight internally is an ornate staircase and wrought-iron balustrade that leads up three floors to an octagonal lantern.
Public viewing is limited to the entrance hall and staircase.
Maister House is the only property in East Yorkshire owned by the National Trust and is not normally open to the public.
