Clyve House is a beautiful property forming part of what was originally a large country house that accommodated two families. The main property was built during the Georgian period and has typical features of that era, including shutters, ornate high ceilings and cornicing including the Grade II* Listed ceiling, in the style of Robert Adam. The current owners have made considerable improvements to the property in the last few years, including renovating the shutters and adding heritage standard draft exclusion to the sash windows, redecorating throughout and redoing the lead work on the balustrades. The property is an ideal lock up and leave and is fitted with an alarm system.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors. The ground floor comprises a grand entrance hall with the original tiled floor from 1690, panelling and moulding and an open fireplace, a dual aspect drawing room with a new oak floor, an open fireplace and window seats and a utility/laundry room with fitted units. A guest bedroom is also found off the entrance hall with a shower room and separate WC. Stairs lead up to the gym on the half landing and the first floor, comprising of a dual aspect sitting room featuring an open fireplace and views over the gardens and tennis court, the kitchen/breakfast room with fitted units, a Lacanche range and granite work surface and a study. Upstairs is the master bedroom with an ensuite shower room, two further bedrooms and a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom.

As part of a converted Georgian Manor house, Clyve house has the benefit of being set in 3 ½ acres of communal gardens and parkland. The house is also located adjacent to Exwick Heights Primary School, which is rated Outstanding by Ofsted.
