A fine example of a Grade II listed Georgian family home nestling on a generous private plot. The property benefits from a host of period features and local amenities.
Clyde House is a stunning Grade II Listed Georgian home set in the renowned historic Minster town of Southwell. It enjoys an enviable position set back from the main road and approached through a front courtyard which provides parking and turning space. The property is mentioned in Nikolaus Pevsner's The Buildings of England and was noted as a substantial house in the town built between 1790 and 1820.
The house enjoys a superb location with south easterly facing gardens adjoining the open parkland to the rear yet within easy level walking distance of the centre of Southwell. There are also views also across to the Minster.

I love the Georgian period, the proportions are so elegant and the space always light and airy. The work the current owners have done only exemplifies this and the house sits beautifully in its plot too.Clare Bingham
