Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Sunday School is a truly unique property in the heart of the popular village of Harrington. Commanding an elevated position on Church Road, the property retains all the external features from it's previous life as a Sunday School for the neighbouring church.

The character and quality of the building has been complimented by a professional conversion of the internal space to provide luxury family accommodation. Exceptional levels of insulation, double glazing throughout, solar panels and a modern, energy-efficient, underfloor heating system combine to keep energy bills down - just take a look at the attached EPC report to see how good this is!

Local amenities, including Beckstone Primary school, are a short walk away, as is the train station, the small village marina and the beaches and costal walks, with views of Scotland and the Isle of Man.

Beautifully restored sandstone walls and tall, arched windows combine to give a really attractive frontage to the property. Sharing a paved driveway with the church, there is off-street, private parking for 3 or 4 vehicles.

Entering through the new, craftsman-built front door, a useful porch opens up into a full height entrance hall. Flooded by natural light, this area offers an introduction to the living space that is on offer throughout the property. Reclaimed wooden flooring is both practical and in keeping with the overall feel of this outstanding property.

The ground floor has four double bedrooms, two of which have their own fully-tiled, en-suites. Each room has individual controls for the heating system, ensuring that everyone is comfortable as well as helping minimise heating bills. A supersized, fully-tiled family bathroom has a large bath, double shower unit and his and her basins.

The large utility room is ideal for the largest family's laundry needs and also has an attached toilet, which is always handy, and ground floor access to the garden.

The luxury and space offered by the ground floor accommodation hardly prepares you for the main living area on the first floor. Rising the stairway, the room opens up past the original balcony to reveal fully vaulted ceilings, an expanse of wooden flooring and exposed beams. The term "room" doesn't do justice to the enormous living space, which at over 70 square meters, is larger than the total floor area of many ordinary houses.

As the defining feature of this property, this unique space will appeal to those who seek something beyond an ordinary house, being extraordinary in both scale and design. Two cosy alcoves provide additional light and double french doors provide access to the rear garden.

The first floor accommodation is completed by a contemporary kitchen that is fully equipped for family meals and entertaining with expensive worktops and integrated appliances.

Externally, the garden has been recently laid as a large lawn and with high boundary walls offers lots of potential for further development.

In summary, this property offers Rolls Royce living for Ford Fiesta money. A stunning combination of period architecture and modern, energy efficient restoration. A unique home that offers space and comfort and luxury, with easy access to local amenities.

A complete antidote to estates full of hundreds of houses that all look the same; early viewing is highly recommended.
