Full description

A Grade II listed period home converted from a former village school steeped with character and placed in the picturesque village of Kingston Seymour - Semi detached and adjoining The Old School House, The Old School was believed to be converted in 2006 to create a highly individual home of a unique pedigree.

From the evidence we have researched the original buildings were constructed in 1858 with attractive natural stone elevations, cut stone mullions and under a clay tiled roof. The property's recent restoration has retained all the features that are so precious with a building of this nature including exposed roof beams, braced and ledged doors and exposed internal stone work around the windows. Of particular note is the first floor mezzanine level, providing a gallery that overlooks the main living space as well as offering an occasional bedroom space or study area. We are really sure the main section of this home could tell some wonderful stories of village life in years gone by?

To enhance the living space there is a separate detached annexe adjoining the rear courtyard. Not only is this apartment ideal for a dependent relative or for when the children get older but will also offer a really private and cosy space for weekend visitors. The planning permission has determined the annexe cannot be let or sold as a separate residential dwelling.

For those who are seeking a good 'lock up and leave', The Old School could really work. The outside is really pretty, secluded and designed for ease of maintenance. Parking is also easy on the long drive which offers access to a garage and first floor storage. This space means for those looking to downsize you won't need to part with all your possessions - yet!!

Kingston Seymour is just idyllic! The village centre is based around All Saints Church famous for its Christmas carol service and the village hall, renown for its annual quiz, monthly markets, annual village show, skittles, badminton, weekly post office and lots more. The village is surrounded by countryside, perfect for walking and cycling and those who love to relax by the water and go fishing you have the Plantation Lakes and Bullock Farm close by.  EPC=Exempt
