The School, built in 1856 was historically described in its earliest origins, as a good brick building with a teacher’s house attached. A century and half on and this once intrinsic and SOCIALLY DEFINING BUILDING has been SYMPATHETICALLY TRANSFORMED into an enviably GENEROUS FAMILY HOME. This CLEVER TRANSFORMATION still characterfully evokes romantic childhood memories of early years of passing Summers and snowy white Winters.

Prominent, atop an elevated plot extending to TWO THIRDS of an ACRE, The Old School House can either be approached along a SWEEPING SHINGLE DRIVEWAY or through a gated entrance opening onto the former COURTYARD playground and double BRICK and TIMBER CART LODGE. An expansive SOUTH FACING TERRACE gives way to a generous, ELEVATED LAWN GARDEN and onwards to an ENCLOSED MEADOW with high hedged backdrop to the ROLLING FIELDS beyond.

This principled property is replete with the fond hallmarks of an EARLY VICTORIAN SCHOOL, sympathetically modernised with a plethora of clever CONTEMPORARY INTRODUCTIONS, evoking a palatial sense of CRAFTSMANSHIP and contemporary ELEGANCE throughout, whilst also enjoying a RENEWABLE ENERGY, ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY, designed during its creation. The ranging accommodation affords any host a wealth of VERSATILITY; a sense of independence for AGEING LOVED ONES or those yet to FLY THE NEST.

The Old School House is nestled toward the end of a LEAFY LANE on fringe of the small, idyllic NORTH NORFOLK rural village of Skeyton, host to the meandering Skeyton Beck and Kings Beck, both bound for the RIVER BURE and onwards to the greater NORFOLK BROADS waterways. Rurally set, the TRANQUIL VILLAGE of Skeyton rests equidistantly, betwixt the renowned North Norfolk COASTLINE and the county’s historical capital CITY CENTRE.

Life at The Old School House is further complemented in its SECLUDED SETTING, less than two miles to family run The GOAT INN and only four miles to the unspoilt, riverside town of AYLSHAM. Resting on the banks of the River Bure, the market town of Aylsham neighbours the magnificent BLICKLING HALL, once home to Anne Boleyn, with its stunning gardens, supporting an unchanged Norfolk landscape of HIGH HEDGES and narrow TREE-LINED LANES. Aylsham is also the northern terminus for the renowned BURE VALLEY RAILWAY, a narrow-gauge steam railway line to the heart of the Norfolk Broads capital of WROXHAM.
