Property Overview - Built in 1850, and believed to have been designed (along with the adjoining school) by the celebrated York architect George Townsend Andrews (1804-1855), this fabulous property retains a wealth of original features and prospective buyers are invited to follow the link below for further information on the Grade II Listing:

Inside - The astonishingly beautiful original front door opens into an entrance lobby with period floor tiling and an inner hallway with storage cupboard and stripped pine period doors leading off into a sitting room with wood burning stove, formal dining room with open fireplace and a kitchen with granite worktops, base and wall storage cupboards, stainless steel gas hob with filter hood above, eye-level double oven and grill, freestanding appliance space and a stable style door opening out into the walled rear courtyard.

A stripped door and staircase off the kitchen leads up to the first floor landing (with original light shaft) and further stripped pine period doors leading off into a principal bedroom with steps down into an en-suite shower room, 2 further bedrooms (1 with period fireplace) and a spacious bathroom with period style bath tub and a separate walk-in shower.

Other internal features of note include gas fired radiator central heating, single glazing and polished floorboards. It should also be noted that the gas fire inside the period fireplace in the dining room has not been tested and is assumed not to be in working order.

Outside - The front garden presently provides a deep flower bed and the walled courtyard to the rear features a useful brick built storage (approx. 10'0" x 4'6"). The courtyard also provides a parking space with timber gates and a restricted turning area off the adjoining lane which School Cottage enjoys a vehicular right of way across.

Services - We have been advised by the vendor that all main services are connected to the property.

Energy Efficiency - The property is exempt from EPC regulations as it is Grade II listed.

Council Tax & Postcode - This property sits within North Yorkshire Council and is in the tax band of C. The postcode for the property is YO30 1AA.

Tenure - We have been informed by the vendor that the property is freehold.
