Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Old School House is an immaculately presented former school house and a credit to the current owners.

The charm of the property is evident immediately. A picture postcard front aspect of picket fence, lawn, cobbled paths, roses and a traditional stone built house are a delightful welcome.

Off the gravel parking area is the arched oak front door opening to a spacious hall with original flagstones, off which is a cloakroom WC and useful study. Continuing into the open plan kitchen/dining room, the full height vaulted ceilings provide drama whilst a modern kitchen of granite worktops, range cooker and various fitted units offer modern usability. The space has lots of natural light from a full height window and the adjacent utility is a real bonus. An oak built mezzanine lends itself to dining or as studio.

Of particular note is the drawing room; the vaulted ceiling and enormous arched window create a huge amount of natural light, and in conjunction with the elegant dining room provides a wonderful entertaining space.

Continuing through the ground floor, and into what was once the schoolmasters house, is a downstairs bedroom served by a large and well-appointed bathroom room and separate WC.
Stairs rise to the first floor landing off which are three bedrooms of good size with the master bedroom containing built-in cupboards. An additional family bathroom services this floor with low level WC, washbasin and bath.

Old School House has a wonderful rural location and benefits from being in close proximity to a number of popular market towns which all provide an excellent range of everyday facilities including shops, pubs, restaurants, schooling and doctors. Leominster is famed for its antique shops but also offers all one would expect from a thriving market town. Close-by, Ludlow continues to enjoy an immense popularity from both locals and visitors alike with people drawn to its interesting architecture, independent shops, vibrant festivals and gastronomic reputation.

Communications in the area are excellent with links to the M5 and national motorway network at Worcester. There are train stations at Ludlow and Leominster, both on the main Manchester to Cardiff lines, and London accessible in a little over 3 hours.

The Herefordshire countryside surrounding School House is fantastic and offers many sporting opportunities including excellent walking, cycling and riding.

Old School House can be approached via a large gravel driveway providing ample off-road parking and beautiful manicured gardens at the front of the property. To the rear, the beautifully landscaped gardens offer a lovely setting for al fresco dining and entertainment with a paved patio and sitting area and feature ponds. There are various outbuildings providing plenty of storage including a wood shed. The property is surrounded by a range of mature trees, shrubs and flowers providing a sense of seclusion and privacy whilst offering a beautiful outlook.
