About this property

This impressive semi-detached family home comes with an abundance of historical moments of interest, formerly ‘The Clifton Manor House’ this dwelling was split into x2 semi detached properties in 1937 by, at the time; one of the most renowned builders in York ‘Henry Colman & Sons Ltd – for the then purchaser the ‘Rowntree Family’ – synonymous with their Chocolate factory in this historic City.

The original construction was that of x3 storeys, but the top floor was hit by a bomb during WW2, thus removing that top floor, the property was then partially rebuilt as a 2-storey dwelling with a large attic space.
