About The Waterfront

This tranquil waterfront city apartment takes its name from its scenic riverside position, with panoramic views that stretch over the Cathedral and theatre dotted skyline.

The home has been beautifully finished with contemporary furnishings and is blessed with natural light through the many floor to ceiling windows. The sitting room has two double aspect Juliette balconies; the perfect viewing point from which to relax and watch the world go by.

Located within the city walls, there is little between you and the city centre but the private, manicured gardens of the estate making the home the perfect retreat after a busy days sightseeing, without the need to jump in the car!

A visit to this wonderful medieval city will be the chance to visit the theatre, enjoy a wonderful meal, a business trip or perhaps an unforgettable romantic weekend to celebrate or unwind.
