Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Detached Grade II Listed former school, with stunning views overlooking the picturesque Shropshire & Cheshire plains, with 4 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, 3 bathrooms & gardens with outbuilding. In about 0.58 acres.


Believed to date back to 15th century the Old School House was the original school for the village and is one of three Grade II listed buildings along School Lane. It is understood that in the 18th and 19th century later additions were made. The property has been renovated to a high standard by the current owners over the last 14 years and retains many original features including wooden floorboards, exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace.

A particular benefit of School House is the flexibility of the accommodation for modern family life. Having three reception rooms downstairs with a shower room just off one and an exit into the gardens outside, it offers possibilities for multi generational living. A mixed slate floor runs through the kitchen/breakfast room and two of the reception rooms and together with stoves in each of the reception rooms complements the traditional features. The kitchenbreakfast room has a range of maple units with a butler's sink, granite work surfaces, a pantry and space for large table and sofa, providing practical living space sought by many buyers. Leading off the kitchen is a utility with a range of units, wooden worktop a 1½ sink and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also access out into the rear garden onto a patio area.

An outstanding feature is the incredible view over the picturesque Shropshire and Cheshire plains which can be enjoyed from the reception rooms and breakfast kitchen but particularly from the sitting room through a large window dominating the front aspect. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a well appointed family bathroom accessed by one staircase and a guest bedroom and ensuite is accessed via separate stairs above the sitting room.

Outside the School House, immediately to the rear of the property, is a large patio which stretches the length of the house and provides a lovely private seating area and entertaining space with doors leading to the utility room and study/reception room. The gardens have been terraced into interesting separate areas with mature shrubs, trees and hedges to make the most of the site and include lawned, wooded and orchard areas with some benefiting from the fantastic view to the front. Within the garden are good sized garden stores/workshops with power and lighting and a garden tool store. To the front is a driveway providing off street parking for several cars.

Square Footage: 2,833 sq ft
Acreage: 0.58 Acres
