Chapmangate, Pocklington, YO42 2BJ
We are delighted to offer this impressive Victorian residence to the market. Located just off the town centre, it was originally part of a flax drying barn which was converted to form part of the Assembly Rooms, and then into a fine house. It has been updated throughout by the present owners who have retained many features from its history. They have extended the house to provide a stunning home with over 2000 sq ft of accommodation with a clever fusion of period and contemporary. An internal inspection is a must.
