A truly unique Grade II* Listed detached house with a fabulous garden, garage and ample parking in the desirable Clifton area of York.

The Old Manor House is a Grade II* listed Jacobean building and one of the most distinctive and notable houses within the prestigious Clifton area of York. The 17th century façade features Dutch gables and intricate masonry and was built around a medieval timber-framed building. It is known locally as ‘the Nell Gwynne house’, since it is rumoured that when Charles II visited the City his mistress stayed here.

The present owners have sympathetically renovated and restored the building, updating the house to serve as a contemporary family home. The original timber-framed house remains very much in evidence in the exposed beams, intricately detailed fireplaces and an 18th Century corner cupboard. The magnificent geometrically panelled entrance door is one of the oldest in York.

The house is deceptively spacious at over 3500 square feet, and the layout lends itself perfectly to family living. Ground Floor: Entrance hall, three well-proportioned reception rooms, a spacious kitchen with dining area and access to cellar, utility room and WC. First Floor: 3 generous bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room, a family bathroom and a further shower room. Second Floor: Bedrooms 4 and 5, in the converted attics, have been transformed into light and airy spaces running from the front to the back of the house. Outside: The garden is a delightfully secluded and green haven, bathed in sunlight. The patio features a pond with a waterfall formed from stone salvaged from Hull City Hall. Beyond the garden lies the garage with workshop area and driveway parking for 2-3 vehicles.

Clifton is one of York’s most desirable districts with excellent local facilities including a butcher, a public house, a chemist and a local store, all of which give it a village feel. The renowned St Peter’s and Bootham schools are a few minutes’ walk. York’s historic city centre is within easy walking distance, just over half a mile. The railway station is a pleasant 20 minute walk. The ring road and Clifton Moor are close by.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
