7 Clifton Green is a period terraced house with a number of fine architectural features, some restored and others sourced as part of a sympathetic renovation: skirting, coving and ornate plasterwork, panelled doors and architraves, stained glass, fireplaces, wall panelling and a superb first floor bay window. In addition to this, the house has recently been rewired, re-plumbed, re-plastered and re-roofed, has double glazed windows, some fine column cast-iron radiators and underfloor heating throughout most of the ground floor.

A superb extension at the rear has created a double height dining/living room with roof trusses exposed, wood burner, fully glazed Crittal window at the rear and open plan to the kitchen. Multiple doors open to the south facing rear garden and flagged pathway at the side of the house. The bespoke, handmade kitchen has a double butler sink, hand painted wooden cabinets, island unit with breakfast bar, Jim Lawrence antique brass fittings, Rangemaster cooker, Corian work surfaces and integrated appliances. Behind lies the walk-in pantry with space for a fridge/freezer, cloakroom and a superb bespoke utility/boot room giving access to the garden. The reception rooms lie at the front of the house with glorious full height picture windows. On the first floor the beautifully proportioned, wood panelled drawing room enjoys fine views over the village green from its bay window, has oak parquet flooring and a gas fire with Aegean limestone surround and blue pearl granite hearth. The principal bedroom suite feels like a private space being positioned within a separate wing of the house with a southerly outlook. There is a second en suite bedroom with fitted wardrobes, and the remaining three bedrooms are arranged on the second floor along with the house bathroom.


The walled garden is a private and tranquil space with a southern orientation. It is accessed from the house through five pairs of French windows and has been skilfully landscaped with flagged seating areas and beds around an acer placed within a circular terrace centre. There is a variety of established trees and shrubs including a palm tree and bamboos that bring an exotic flourish as well as traditional climbers such as honeysuckle and clematis. High wrought iron gates beyond give access to a single, private parking space and the rear garden of 7 Clifton Green. Parking is also available both at the front of the house and on Clifton Dale as part of the residents’ parking scheme.


7 Clifton Green enjoys an enviable position on the southwest corner of the tree-lined public amenity space that is Clifton Green. On the doorstep is Clifton Village with a range of shops including the much-loved local butcher Neary’s, a convenience store, pharmacy, hairdresser, dentist, doctors, cafés and a newly renovated public house. The city centre is just a short walk away along Bootham where St Peter’s and Bootham schools can be found. York mainline railway station can be reached on foot; it provides regular services to major cities including Leeds, Manchester, Edinburgh and London with some journeys taking less than two hours to Kings Cross. Just across the road are fourteen acres of parkland at Homestead Park, and leafy footpaths and cycle lanes provide routes along the river Ouse into the city and west to Rawcliffe country park. Clifton lies at the right side of the city for easy vehicular access to York Sports Club and on to the bypass giving access to the A19, A59 and A64 on to the A1M.
