The Owners Words
Rivermead, my sunny home for the last 15 years holds so much love laughter and happiness within its walls that Im sure you will sense from the minute you step over the threshold. A special place has always been the little Mediterranean corner with the wisteria climbing the pergola, snugly tucked in with the warmth from the chiminea, a meal slowly cooking in its oven to enjoy on a balmy evening…or even a winter one! Thank you Rivermead for Happy Days
This substantial family home offers surprisingly generous and versatile accommodation, modern finishes throughout and a wonderfully private position, with the benefit of being less than a mile from the sandy shores of St. Ives.
