The Old School is a gorgeous example of a sympathetically converted, Grade II listed, Victorian Village School, which seamlessly blends traditional style with contemporary architecture.
The original School is believed to date from around 1850, with a contemporary bedroom extension added by the present owners within the last 7 years, creating the charming, spacious, unique home you see today.
The front door leads to a sizeable entrance lobby, currently used as a study, with a separate guest cloakroom. A feature doorway leads to the original School classroom which has been transformed into a breathtaking open-plan living space with double height ceiling, solid oak flooring, sash windows and a Clearview log burner, making this the hub of the home. Original partition doors, restored with hand painted glass panelling, lead to the traditionally-styled modern kitchen. The kitchen is spacious and contains a sizeable island unit, 4 ovens, induction hob, solid granite work surfaces and ample cupboard space with plumbing for all appliances.
Double doors connect the original School with the more recent sleeping accommodation. This comprises a spacious, light and tastefully designed structure with a timber frame and clad in Siberian Larch, with numerous glass elevations and a glazed inner-lobby ceiling. The generous sleeping accommodation boasts three bedrooms with a beautifully appointed family bathroom. The Master Suite is of particular note with a well appointed en-suite, ample storage and glazed elevations offering views over the garden.
This truly individual home must be viewed to be appreciated.
The village of Pitton forms part of the Pitton and Farley Parish which lies some five miles to the east of the cathedral city of Salisbury. Surrounded by rolling countryside the village itself offers a range of facilities including a general store and Post Office, thriving village hall, sports fields and tennis court and a well regarded local Inn, The Silver Plough. The village church, St Peter's, in its original form predates Salisbury Cathedral although most of the current structure dates from around 1860. The award winning Pitton Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School is just off the village centre, is hugely popular and extremely well regarded. Neighbouring communities include the villages of Farley, The Winterslows, Tytherley and Firsdown. Salisbury offers a more comprehensive range of recreational amenities, shopping facilities, market on Tuesdays and Saturdays and a wide range of schooling, both state and private, including two grammar schools and a college of further education. Salisbury has a mainline railway station, also stopping at Grateley, serving London Waterloo and the West Country. Although a rural environment, access to the M3 and M25 is easily obtained via the A303 to the north east and to Southampton via the A36/M27 to the south.
Outside the property has parking for several vehicles to the rear. There is a lovely courtyard garden, perfect for entertaining and al-fresco dining, with steps that lead to the parking area and further seating area beyond. To the front is an attractive part-walled courtyard garden.
