Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An exciting renovation opportunity of a Victorian School House, currently comprising a two bedroom cottage and a versatile open plan area with a recently installed mezzanine level with the potential to be adapted into a truly unique home. The exterior of the building is a testimony to the quality of masonry during the period of its construction; with a knapped flint face and dressed stone quoins framing the ornately designed stone windows.

Within the property many of the original features have been retained, in particular the superb Queen Anne style roof in the Old School House. The building sits centrally within its generously sized plot, enjoying stunning panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and across to the medieval Church of St. Mary.

The accommodation is entered via central lobby area with quarry tiled flooring which has inner doors leading to The School Mistresses Cottage and The School House itself.
The cottage briefly comprises sitting room with formed archway to dining room, kitchen, bathroom and rear lobby on the ground floor with two double bedrooms on the first floor. The first floor of both buildings could be easily linked into a landing through an adjoining wall.

The School House is largely an open-plan area with full height windows to the side and an additional partitioned room to the rear and a recently installed timber staircase leading to a mezzanine platform, which is currently partitioned into additional bedroom space.

The outside space includes an area of lawn positioned behind a row of established conifers, extensive car parking on the old playground and a pair of outbuildings that have previously had planning approval to re-model into a double garage.
