One amenity that doesn’t often come with a townhouse is a riverside view.
But there are hints to the close proximity of this property to water in the name of its road.
At the bottom of the garden of this elegant Georgian property in Bridge Street, Pershore, the River Avon flows by.
Not only does it provide a lovely view, but it also offers for opportunities for fishing, wildlife spotting and for messing about on boats as it comes with mooring rights.
The house itself is Grade II listed and sits within the conservation area of the charming Georgian market town.
One of the larger residences in Bridge Street, the house is packed with character.
The front door leads into a long reception hall which provides access to the principal reception rooms.
In the drawing room there is a large bay-window with an open fire and high ceilings. It is spacious with original shelving either side of the fireplace.

The dining room is a later addition to the original house and has a tiled floor and sky lights, providing plenty of light throughout.
