Tenure: Leasehold Raywell House and its adjacent Coach House sit within 35 acres of beautiful parkland, six miles to the north west of the city of Hull. This striking, early 19th-century property has been developed by Quintor Homes into 15 desirable and luxurious apartments and town houses, each taking full advantage of the attractive location and historical features of the site.
