Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in approximately 1850, Old School House as its name suggests was originally a school and a house but has since undergone a loving and painstaking full restoration program whichhas successfully retained all of the Victorian character, whilst transforming it into an incredibly spacious family residence providing over 4,500 sq. feet of accommodation set on a 0.84 acre plot (stms), with two sizeable garages and an internal workshop.
Those who seek character details will fall in love with the feel of the home and all of its retained character with exposed stripped oak ceiling trusses, exposed brickwork, Gothic arch windows, stripped solid oak doors and floors throughout.
It is easy to feel impressively overwhelmed by just how much space has been cleverly created within this historic building and it is a pleasure wandering through with a floorplan to appreciate the number and size of the rooms it provides.
Unquestionably this property would make a wonderful country retreat which we believe would ideally would suit a larger family looking to establish long term roots, write their own history and create a lifetime of memories here. It is quite simply that sort of home.
The accommodation would also provide valuable space to those who are looking for a property with the flexibility and space to work from home.

The ground floor provides a welcoming entrance hall which provides access to a number of principle rooms including a 34ft x 18ft Sitting Room, 18ft x 18ft Dining Room, 18ft x 15ft Games/Family, a 23ft x 12ft Breakfast Room which leads to a stylish and spacious family kitchen with access to an 18ft Conservatory.
Two staircases provide access to the First floor which offers a sumptuous array of incredibly generous double bedrooms rich in character and individual charm which provide different aspect over the grounds and gardens that surround the property.
These rooms are serviced by four well specified bathrooms which include an en suite to the Master bedroom.

The home is situated on an incredibly private plot of approximately 0.84 acres (stms) and position which is naturally enclosed by mature tress and hedging. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a walled aspect, wishing well, a recently planted orchard, and a summerhouse and dining area framed by a mature horse chestnut tree.
The property is approached through a gate leading into a sizeable gravelled parking and turning area with ample off road parking for a number of vehicles and a generous garage.
Secondary vehicular access is available just further up from this with a further parking area with an additional garage.

A number of brick built outbuildings are located between the house and the garden including a wood store and garden store.
