Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A former Victorian village school hall, lovingly converted into a stylish Two Bedroom home. Approached through black iron gates with railings and low wall enclosing the former playground, with off-road parking for at least two cars, the plaques above the iron studded door read "Caynham National School erected 1834", and another "Millenium 2000".

Main Hall 
9.2m x 4.6m
This is a cavernous space, steeped in over a hundred and eighty years of history and countless thousands of children. It incorporates both kitchen and living spaces and provides access to the mezzanine floor above. The floor is of wood and the roof space shows off the trusses and beams that make up the roof of the hall. The most interesting feature is the original school bell, still in its housing in the tower, and the current owner has added a period bell-pull which allows you to ring the school bell out over the village, when it’s time for class of course. Lighting is provided by two feature pendant lights plus additional inset spotlights. Natural light floods in through the three side windows and the enormous south window overlooking the old playground. There is a useful cupboard to the side with the pressurised hot water system and plumbing for a washing machine and additional shelving potentially for a tumble dryer. The kitchen area is well appointed with electr (truncated)

A double glazed window looks out over the front approach and there is a cupboard to the side housing the boiler and electrics. The area is completed with splendid ironwork railings around the top of the spiral stairs.
