A discreet property when viewed from the village street, it comes into its own at the rear where the entire width of the house connects to the large terrace and gardens beyond. Ellerbridge enjoys a picturesque setting overlooking the beck, a peaceful village location well placed for access to the market towns of Beverley and Driffield as well as the M62 and motorway network beyond.
