A quite stunning period townhouse set within this riverside location having undergone an extensive programme of modernisation with the guidance of a highly regarded local interior designer.

Extensively refurbished with superb attention to detail, over the past few years this exquisite home has undergone a complete transformation. The current vendors employed well regarded interior designer, Sara Cussons, of Cussons & Storey Design Consultants to help project manage, interior light design and space plan which helped create this wonderful family home which now presents one of the best examples of its kind on the market today.

Enjoying a lovely riverside backdrop, the dwelling is within easy reach of the city centre of York. A pleasant walk to local restaurants and shops provides views of the York Minster. In addition, links to the A64 and York outer ring road are close by with York railway station connecting York to London in around two hours.

The sitting room provides a wonderful large bay window to the front elevation along with a feature open fire and exposed timber flooring salvaged from former church roof timbers. An opening thereafter leads through into a perfect study area with bi-folding timber doors. This space was created by our vendors to offer flexibility to the home with potential to be used as a ground floor bedroom or playroom with fitted bespoke storage. Adjoining this room is a beautiful fully tiled shower room with low flush WC and hand wash basin set within a stylish surround, full width mirror and large walk in shower area.
