Full description

Originally constructed in 1839 and lovingly extended by the vendors over many years, School House is one of the landmark properties in the award winning village of Haughton.

Extensively reroofed in 2016, and with the majority of the windows to the property either double or secondary glazed.

The small, friendly settlement of Haughton is a well-known community located just to the west side of Stafford (Approx. 4 miles). The village itself, which has won several best kept Village awards (previously in 1963, 2000, 2004, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014) is the current holder of the awards for the Best Kept Large Village in Stafford and the prestigious Best Kept Large Village In Staffordshire in 2015.
