Sales and marketing director at Newby Anthony Mackle said:

  • We’re really excited to be able to take people into the building for the first time and many people have been so eager to see the breathtaking views from Ryedale House across York for themselves.

    It’s no surprise it’s been called the best view in York, as apartments enjoy multi-aspect vistas across York’s historic centre.

The show apartment will be open from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 19th October and appointments can be made by contacting Savills on 01904 593 551. Viewings on later dates can be made by appointment in advance.
