Sellers Comment

" We love the location with its peaceful view on the Ouse River and postcard worthy curb appeal. We have enjoyed the riverside life even more so with the boathouse with ample mooring space and separate power line. Amazingly, the property has more to offer including traditional reception rooms to the front and a modern extension to the rear. "
