Looking for a unique home? These old schools for sale ooze character and atmosphere.

Originally dating from 1610, Grade I-listed Howsham Hall started life as a magnificent country house but later became a boarding school. Beautifully renovated and converted back to residential use, it is now a stunning home combining period grandeur with contemporary comfort. The splendid grounds – 83.5 acres of formal lawns, parkland and pastureland with river Derwent frontage – match the beauty of the house. Through Knight Frank.
