Property Description

A stunning conversion of a characterful Victorian school, reconfigured and extended to create a fabulously individual home. Occupying an idyllic position in the pretty village of Harton, on the edge of the Howardian Hills AONB and yet only 9 miles North-east of York.



Nestled within the picturesque North Yorkshire landscape on the edge of the Howardian Hills, The Old Village School offers a unique blend of modern day luxury and timeless charm. Steeped in history and exuding elegance, this Victorian property was built in 1875 and later converted by award-winning architects EcoArc to create a fabulously individual and substantial home. The conversion was sensitively carried out to respect the origins of the building, retaining original features whilst cleverly reconfiguring and extending the footprint to provide spacious and versatile accommodation.

The property enjoys light-filled living spaces with stunning views from every aspect. Each room has been beautifully styled to compliment the original features showcased throughout, including exposed ceiling beams and wood flooring. The spacious entrance hallway leads to several reception rooms, with double doors on either side allowing the option of free-flowing living or cosier enclosed rooms. At the heart of the home, an impressive open-plan living/dining area with a log burner and glass extensions to either side provides the perfect entertaining and family space, with access to both the garden and front courtyard through large patio doors. A particularly bright part of the house that originally served as the school hall, this area provides ample room for lounging and dining.
The Neptune designed kitchen features an iconic Aga stove that adds character and warmth, alongside cottage style cabinets, a large Belfast sink, and built in fridge freezer. With plenty of worktop and storage space, it offers excellent functionality in addition to style. The kitchen leads into a sizable utility/boot-room with room for a freestanding washing machine, dryer and dishwasher, and external access to the driveway.

There is a second living room with a cosy log burner, and additional ground floor room which could serve as a home office, or a 6th bedroom if required. The principal bedroom suite lies on the ground floor, a stunning king-size room with a vaulted ceiling and garden views, served by a contemporary shower room.

The first floor is accessed via the central hallway, an open wood staircase, or by a rear spiral staircase. Occupied by four generously sized double bedrooms, all enjoy individual features, open rural views and access to their own bathroom. With various options for home offices, ground floor facilities and separate reception areas, this property offers superb versatility to suit a variety of lifestyles and family requirements.

Externally, the grounds have been superbly landscaped to provide different areas for entertaining, dining, and relaxing. The south-facing aspect offers a spacious lawn extending from a raised patio area, the perfect sun trap and an idyllic spot to admire the beautifully decorated gardens; with mature trees and planted beds, there is plenty of colour as the seasons change. There is an outdoor entertaining and BBQ area, thoughtfully built with reclaimed local bricks to seamlessly blend with the surroundings. Offering a built in BBQ and fire, electric ceiling heaters and fridge, this covered spot is ideal for year-round al fresco dining. To the rear of the property, there is a second courtyard garden, allowing the sun or shade to be followed throughout the day. All enclosed by mature hedging and brick walls, the boundaries give complete privacy and safety for families and pets.

A gated gravelled driveway sweeps to the side of the property, providing ample space for parking several vehicles. There is a large detached garage with an electric car charging point, and a useful storage shed/workshop space.

The picturesque village of Harton lies approximately 9 miles equidistant of York and Malton, on the edge of the Howardian Hills AONB. A historically rural community built around a pretty village green, the surrounding landscape is formed mostly of farmland with a backdrop of rolling hills. Harton's neighbouring villages include Flaxton, Barton-Le-Willows and Claxton which offer a range of different amenities and facilities including coffee shops, pubs and schools. More extensive facilities can be found in nearby York and Malton, including the railway stations with links to London in under 2 hours. An idyllic location for those seeking the countryside lifestyle, enjoying some of the best walking and cycling routes in the region, with convenient transport links and city attractions within easy reach.
