This converted school building is impressive from every angle, both inside and out. It combines the old hall with the master's cottage and subsequent extensions to provide a spacious house with striking architectural features that blend well to create a wonderfully atmospheric home.
Set on the main road between Basingstoke and Overton, in the small hamlet of Deane, it is surrounded on three sides by good size gardens and open farmland to the rear.
The location is very convenient, particularly for the commuter with mainline rail services into London available at Overton (about 2 miles) and Basingstoke (about 8 miles) . Overton also has shops and amenities to cater for everyday needs and Basingstoke is the major centre of north Hampshire.
There are lots of things to talk about with this property but probably the most notable is the old main school hall, which has been transformed into the living/dining room with a mezzanine sitting room. A deep arched window overlooks the dining area and a brick built fireplace sits at the far end of the living room. A wooden staircase with an 'Arts & Craft' feel leads up to the sitting room, which overlooks the dining area and also has views through two velux windows to the farmland at the rear. The whole of this area is drawn together by the stunning vaulted ceiling with timber cladding and beams.
The original school porch is used by the owners as a storage space and rather quaintly, this still has some of the old coat hooks and a little wooden bench.
The kitchen/ breakfast room occupies most of the extension and offers plenty of space with room for a large table and lots of cupboards and polished granite work surfaces. It also incorporates a utility area, which houses the oil-fired boiler.
The extended part of the house is linked to the original building by a long and well-lit porch and hallway. At one end of the hallway is the former schoolmaster's house, which has a study, bedroom and shower room on the ground floor. The bedroom has a lovely offset bay window in one corner that is ideal for a dressing table or window seat. The shower room has been fitted in a very pleasing contemporary style including a large shower cubicle. The study could be used as an occasional bedroom. The first floor of this part of the building is accessed from the mezzanine sitting room and has the main and second bedrooms together with a modern bathroom in a similar style to the shower room.
The outside space wraps around the property with a level lawn on the west side bordered by mature trees and shrubs. To the south there is a large timber deck with terraced shrub beds above and a winding shingle path that leads up to a raised deck that has views over the farmland to the rear and provides the perfect spot for evening drinks. The east side has further areas of lawn with a fishpond and embankment.
Parking is good here with a double width garage and a large driveway and turning area covered with slate chippings.
