The Story

The charming 200-year-old schoolhouse nestles in an idyllic North Norfolk village - it is rich in character and has a very special warm and inviting atmosphere. For so many years, Dennis and Maria ensured their beautiful home was as much a part of the community as it was when it welcomed children through its doors. And as the family prepare to say goodbye to the former schoolhouse, they will take with them, the most wonderful memories. “My mum and dad were very well known in the village and are honoured in the local church: my mum for her contribution to village life and my father, because of his military achievements,” says their son. In fact the house was very much a place where it seems everybody in the village stopped for a cup of coffee and a chat. Typically Italian, Maria loved being at the heart of things, and of course she made great coffee of course. 'That was part of the magic – it was a wonderful, warm and inviting house with an incredibly special atmosphere.”

Setting The Scene

Nestled in the idyllic north Norfolk village of Burgh, the Old School House is set in an immaculate cottage garden, which the owners would open up for others to enjoy. A mixture of lawn, mature shrub beds and trees, it is full of lovely features and has won prizes in village and church garden competitions over the years. “It is a very private and peaceful place,” say the owners. “Its easy to find your own space within the garden to make the most of all the sunny spots and enjoy the wonderful flowers and plants. There is a sunny terrace with table and chairs to dine al fresco with shade from the sun under the oak balcony above. Approached via a gravelled carriage driveway leading to a double garage and providing generous parking; with a lawned area bound by a privet hedge; with mature shrubs and climbing plants. Leading down the side of the property, the garden area is screened by conifers; adjacent to the rear of the house is a sun terrace ideal for “al fresco” dining with cover provided by the balcony. The garden is mainly laid to brick edge lawn, with deep, well stocked cottage garden borders and middle bed. There is a wealth of old fashioned plants including a gazebo with climbing scented roses, peonies, clematis, hydrangeas and azaleas. The utility area is screened by mature hedging with the whole garden is a wildlife haven and alive with birdsong. Close by there are beautiful walks along the river and a footpath running the same way as the light railway into Aylesham.
