Walk out of the complex gates and within minutes you are on the river banks of the Ouse with a view of the famous King Arms pub just a few metres away on the opposite bank. Within a few minutes you are in the City centre shopping and entertainment area with its famous narrow cobbled streets, boutique shops, restaurants to suit all tastes and a vibrant vibe at nightfall. You won't have far to walk after a day's shopping or a nights indulgence to return to the house. No need for taxis when staying at this property and the car can take a break for the duration of your stay as all of central York's historic buildings and many attractions are within 10 minutes walk.
If food is your thing, a night in, or a night out couldn't be more convenient, at the bottom of the street a fabulous Indian take-away (or eat in) is available and there are a multitude of other choices within the vicinity, as well as a shop to buy wine, ingredients or treats. If you prefer to dine out, less than two minutes walk will allow you a choice from restaurants such as Picalinos, The Living Rooms, Red Chilli Chinese, Akbars and Thida Thai. A few minutes more and your choice widens to encompass every style, cuisine and budget.
Quite simply, there isn't a better location to be in York and this is reflected in the fact that this is one of the most sought after and exclusive areas to own a property in the City.
