DRAFT DETAILS AWAITING VENDOR APPROVAL. The former Victorian School House has been converted into two bedroomed accommodation with full gas central heating and double glazed windows. The house has a fascinating history, originally built by a local philanthropist to provide free schooling for the children of the surrounding area. It has recently been converted to a very high standard, retaining many of the original features such as high vaulted ceilings, original front door with the school coat pegs in the large entrance hall, a superb large lounge with wood burning stove inset into a feature brick fireplace, dining room with a Victorian fireplace having decorative tiled insert and stairs to master bedroom. A further bedroom is located on the ground floor along with a large bathroom having a claw foot bath, shower, sink and WC with tiled floor. The kitchen has hand crafted pine units with cooking range and back door leading to the large garden at the rear.

The garden is mostly block paved providing easy maintenance and has a double car port, huge timber built garage and parking for at least an additional six cars. The garage offers the potential for multiple use and is large enough to convert into a games room, gym, office or further accommodation or an annexe. Vehicular access is from the rear of the property and there is huge potential for further development on the very large plot. There is a large decked patio and flower beds and the garden is totally private and not overlooked. The seller informs is that the house has had plans drawn up in the past to convert further into a four bed property.
