The School House provides surprisingly spacious living accommodation with a practical layout for the family lifestyle featuring particularly light and airy rooms. The property is Grade II Listed and dates back to the early 19th Century with the rear wing dated during the 19th Century. The house has gabled elevations, a plain tiled roof, two bays, dentilated round head kneelers, dormers and Yorkshire sash windows with segmental heads. Indeed a very interesting building within the heart of the Norwell Conservation village.

The accommodation provides on the ground floor; sitting room, dining room, family room, kitchen, cloakroom, laundry room and breakfast room. There is a basement with a barrel vaulted cellar. The first floor provides four really good sized bedrooms, a dressing room with plumbing provided for bathroom fittings and separately a good sized family bathroom. The property has a double garage, walled frontage, gravelled parking area and rear garden with a retaining wall. Central heating is oil fired and the boiler was installed November 2016. The renovation and restoration of this house has included re-roofing with plain tiles, pantiles and crested ridge tiles.


The earliest part of the building circa 1725 was the original Endowed Charity School of Norwell to which around 1800 the School Masters House was added. The Artisan Mannerist rusticated brick doorcase with dentillated round head and kneelers is a rather beautiful period feature.

The village of Norwell is situated approximately 7 miles North of Newark and is approached by country lanes from Bathley, Cromwell or via the A616 and Norwell Woodhouse. This pleasant village nestles in gently rolling countryside adjacent to greenbelt and mature landscaped areas. Norwell Village is a conservation area with a variety of historic old buildings scattered along the main street. Local amenities include a general village store selling reasonably priced produce and The Plough Inn is a popular local pub. The village has an excellent primary school. Ideally situated for commuting to Southwell, Mansfield, Nottingham and Sheffield and access points to the A1 are approximately 2 miles. Fast East coast trains from Newark Northgate to London Kings Cross are capable of journey times in just over 75 minutes.
