About this property

  • Both properties are located in the village centre, both with frontage onto Chestnut Avenue, the main street, and with shared vehicular access from Brook Lane at the rear.

    The Old School

    The Old School was built in 1874 by John Richard Hill as the village school. Latterly, the rear part of the building provided doctors' surgery accommodation and the main front portion was used by various village groups for education, shopping fairs and other functions. The building is of stone construction with slate and pantile roof. To the rear is a large hardstanding area providing extensive parking, the building now requires full renovation. The planning consent obtained extends to retail/restaurant fronting Chestnut Avenue and two residential dwellings within the rear of building.

    School House

    School House is a Grade II Listed cottage of stone construction, under a pantile roof. The property sits immediately to the east of The Old School, has a small garden and shares the vehicular access. The house comprises: kitchen with small pantry, sitting room, dining room, two bedrooms, bathroom with bath and separate shower. The Cottage benefits from many traditional features including original fireplaces, heritage style radiators and wood panelled doors.

    The Barn and Lavatory Block

    Adjacent to the rear access and Brook Lane, is a traditional single storey stone barn with pantile roof, with consent for conversion to a 1 bedroom dwelling. There is also a former lavatory block of similar construction which will form a store room area for the proposed development.

    Thornton-le-Dale is an enduringly popular village and renowned tourist destination located on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park, on the A170 between Pickering and Scarborough. The village centre is its main draw, where there is a selection of attractive, mainly stone buildings including various shops, tea rooms and cottages, many overlooking the pretty beck.
