About Binfield House

This extremely spacious and comfortable house is situated in an enviable position of seclusion with an acre and a half of private garden, right next to the marina of Island Harbour, set in a beautiful riverside valley. The central part of the house was built in the 1890s and boasts a number of original features including the ceiling wooden beams.

The home offers comfortable accommodation over two floors creating a spacious, light and airy environment with stylish, contemporary furnishings.
