Albany House is an elegant Georgian semi-detached town house arranged on upper ground, first and second floors, with gravelled private forecourt garden and private parking to the rear. The house is located on the junction of Silver Street and The Paddock, although entering the postcode – YO21 3BX – into your SatNav may direct you to Wellington Terrace, a little further up Silver Street!

The house is within a short walk of the many attractions of the town, including the harbour, the town centre and the beach at West Cliff.



Please park in the dedicated space to the rear of the house. There is room for two medium sized cars in tandem – just about! If two families are sharing the property, and both have large estate cars, it may be better to leave one car on the unrestricted parking areas on the streets near West Cliff.
