A STYLISH AND EXTREMELY WELL PRESENTED 4 BEDROOM TOWN HOUSE IN A PRIME RIVERSIDE DEVELOPMENT IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
Running west from Fishergate, Blue Bridge Lane lies in one of Yorks most desirable residential areas and is a cul-de-sac leading down to the river from where a pleasant riverside walk gives easy access to the city centre which lies approximately 0.75 mile away to the north whilst the nearby Millennium footbridge gives pedestrian access to Rowntree Park on the western side of the river. Fishergate itself boasts a diverse range of amenities and local shops and is ideally suited for pedestrian access to the facilities of the city centre and also by car to the southern section of the outer ring road and the University of York.
21 William Court is a superb contemporary town house being one of twenty four similar properties built by Shepherd Homes on the site of the former head office of the eponymous Shepherd Building Group. No.21 is one of a block of just seven similar properties arranged to the northern perimeter of the development with the result that the rear garden is able to benefit from the afternoon sun whilst from the front of the property the River Ouse may clearly be seen. The development occupies an enviable position at the confluence of the Rivers Foss and Ouse and lies almost directly opposite the attractive and historic Blue Bridge where there has been a wooden drawbridge since 1736.

From the Kitchen two sets of French doors open on to a most attractive enclosed landscaped town garden being protected on all sides by high timber boarded fencing and approached via a brick edged stone flagged sun terrace forming a most wonderful summer seating and al fresco dining area. Adjacent are Clipped Box, Rosemary and to the eastern elevation is a Pyracantha.
