INTRODUCTION

One of Yorkshire’s finest period rectories. The north wing dates from the 18th Century but was considered too small by later incumbents and in 1838 the renowned architect James Pritchett added the imposing south elevation. The Old Vicarage faces south opposite the Norman Church in Bossall, a small hamlet 10 miles north east of York.

A sweeping gravel drive leads to the parking area with flanking stable block, garage and kennels.

The generous grounds surround the house and include tennis court, sunken garden with water feature, kitchen garden and orchard; extensive lawns and fully stocked herbaceous borders.

The house is both impressive and handsome, featuring five reception rooms, vaulted cellars, six bedrooms and three bathrooms.

To complete this idyllic family property there are 11 acres of grass paddock with protective shelter belt woodland.

This exceptionally fine early Victorian house is built in Flemish Bond brickwork on the south elevation and in red brick construction under a slate roof on the earlier 18th Century north wing.

The stone mullioned windows are all single glass with secondary glazing and there are many ornamental features on the coping ridge and original dormer windows. The architect, James Pritchett was the first to escape from the traditional “pinched” central corridor and at Bossall he introduced the back corridor running like a spine behind the major reception rooms.

The floor area of the house alone at over 5000 sq.ft. is unusually large for a rectory and lifts the accommodation to provide for families.

The stable block is thought to have been built with the original vicarage, with the double garage added in 1972.

Message from the current owner:

“We have had nearly fifty wonderful years living here. It is an ideal family home where many interests can be enjoyed, with easy access to York and Malton, the North York Moors National Park and Yorkshire Coast.

The house is in an ideal location for the train stations at York and Malton and all main roads travelling north and south are within a few miles.

I am sure another family would equally enjoy living here.”

The Old Vicarage is an unique country residence rarely available on the market.
