About this home
A pair of distinctive two bedroom duplex apartments in Skipton, North Yorkshire, created from our contemporary conversion of the historic school building.
We’ve used innovative recessed mezzanine floors which provide two additional storeys within the building’s original structure while leaving the lines of the original lancet windows uninterrupted. Apartment 3 occupies the ground and first floors and Apartment 7 is located on the second and third floors, and both cover c. 780 sq. ft.
The apartments occupy the right hand side of the original frontage of the school, facing Gargrave Road, but their communal entrance (shared only by these two homes) is found at the rear, providing easy access to parking (each home has one designated space). The entrance that once provided access to the infants’ school (complete with Tempest family coat of arms and motto above) remains, though the door has been blocked and is no longer usable. The front door to Apartment 3 is located in the communal hallway, where an original staircase we have retained and restored leads upstairs, providing sole access to Apartment 7.
Space has been cleverly maximised in the entrance hall of both homes, providing a WC and storage space. The large open plan living space, with kitchen, seating and dining areas plus storage, also leads from here. Upstairs the footprint is slightly less than the floor below, to accommodate the mezzanine floor, but both homes have two sizable double bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and shower. There are exposed beams in both apartments, with the original vaulted ceilings creating a dramatic backdrop to the upper floor of Apartment 7.
Both apartments are priced at £275,000.
