Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old School House was built in 1867 as a school and headmasters residence, providing education for the local children from the rural area. The school was closed in 1965 and was sympathetically converted into a stunning private residence, ensuring that the original character and charm has been retained. This beautifully presented dwelling would make a magnificent family home, however, the current owners have in the past run it as a successful bed and breakfast establishment.
The Old School House is set within established landscaped level gardens and grounds, which extends to approximately 1.2 acres, which are mainly laid to lawns, flowerbeds and shrubberies and ample 'off road' parking on a gravelled driveway to the front and side of the house leading to the garage.

The well appointed interior of this Grade ll Listed building, has many of its original character and charm, which includes coving, beamed ceilings, working shutters on the arched windows, deep skirting boards and original interior doors. The accommodation is set on two levels, with separate staircases to each first floor wing. The property is entered through a vestibule into the main entrance hall with original carved staircase, which gives access to a generous lounge with a dining area and an attractive marble fireplace. There is a large farmhouse style kitchen with a range of shaker styled kitchen units and an Aga. From the kitchen is an office, a large utility room and cloakroom. There are three large double bedrooms on the ground floor, with bedroom three having a bay window and access to a Jack and Jill bathroom, this bedroom could be used as another reception room if required.

On the north first floor wing is a family bathroom with a four piece suite and a large double bedroom with sitting area and fitted wardrobes. On the south wing is a shower room and the stunning main bedroom with a ornate beamed ceiling and sitting area.
The Old School House is surrounded by level landscaped gardens and grounds on all sides, ensuring privacy for the owners. The grounds extend to approximately 1.2 acres of level lawns and contain a large garage and a range of useful stone built outhouses.
