Tenure: Freehold

A unique opportunity to purchase an impressive converted three/four bedroom former School, which meets exacting specifications and occupies a central village location.

The former School was built in 1867. At that time, the vicar of St Issey Church achieved his ambition of educating the children of the Parish by having the School established.

The property is built of traditional Cornish stone, transported by local farmers who gave their support to bring the stone from Tredinnick Quarry. It is surmounted by a natural slate roof.

The property has living accommodation on both ground and first floor levels. The ground floor accommodation has been arranged with a magnificent living room/day room measuring in excess of 38" x 17". This room is considered to be an excellent family/entertaining room and is arranged as 'zoned spaces' with a sitting area at one end, dining area in the centre and kitchen to the other end. It offers an enamel wood burning stove, impressive arched windows to both gable ends and three further windows overlooking the rear garden. This room has free standing hand built and painted units providing an entertaining kitchen space. It comprises a centre island and Belfast sink units, both with hand finished oak work surfaces.

To the rear of the day room is a feature-arched door giving access to a working kitchen with further hand built units, electric oven and four-ring ceramic hob and tall fridge/freezer. A set of double doors from the day room gives access to a further lounge room.

Two staircases give access to the three double bedrooms at first floor level, the master bedroom has a contemporary en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms with feature internal port hole windows give vistas to the space below and external views across the moor and St Issey Church. All three bedrooms have Velux windows enjoying far reaching views to open countryside, the village and delightful glimpses of the church and its grounds.

The former School has been sympathetically renovated with a particular regard for retaining many of the original character features. The property boasts original window openings, original doors, original fireplaces with newly installed multi-fuel wood-burning stoves, oil fired central heating, contemporary hand finished kitchens and bathroom, landscaped gardens, covered hardwood patio, parking for six plus vehicles and planning consent has been applied for a detached double garage.

The property sits in generous landscaped gardens located centrally in the village, backing onto the village church and grounds. To the front elevation can be found three feature-raised planters with 60 topiary shrubs and feature granite obelisk. To the rear of the property are four further raised planting beds.

Viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate the qualities this property has to offer.

The Village of St Issey is located equidistant between Padstow and Wadebridge and boasts a village Church, Primary School and the Ring O'Bells public house.

The harbour town of Padstow is famed for its superb range of restaurants, shops and quaint harbour, whilst the former market of Wadebridge offers more extensive shopping facilities, Secondary School and Sixth Form.

Bodmin Parkway and the airport at Newquay are both within 12 miles respectively
offering regular links to the capitol.
