Full description

Yopa are pleased to offer this delightful period home with an abundance of charm and character. This fascinating detached residence was once the village school and was formerly owned by Lord Wraxall of the Tyntesfield Estate (now owned by the National Trust). The Old School House was sold to our vendor clients by Baron Lord Wraxall.

Throughout the property, there is a wealth of period features including mullion windows and delightful beamed ceilings, yet the property offers all the modern trappings for a family to enjoy, including a spacious open plan kitchen/family room and a generous en-suite bathroom.

The property is offered with no onward chain and is a must view for those who are looking for a characterful home within easy reach of Bristol and the surrounding area.

THE GROUND FLOOR

The solid oak front door opens to the entrance hall, from here a flight of stairs lead to the first floor and internal doors lead to the sitting room and the kitchen/family room.

The dual aspect sitting room is a delightful principal reception room, with secondary glazed stone mullion windows to the front and further mullion windows to the rear. There is also an attractive open fire with a cast iron canopied flue, exposed beams and double doors leading to the dining room.

The dining room is currently arranged as an area for formal dining, however, it could also be used for a study/home office. An oak door leads from the dining room to the rear garden if an intending purchaser was thinking about utilising this space as an office the door to the rear could be used for clients rather than having to take them via the main house. There is also a stone mullioned window, exposed stone wall and an original wash copper, modern methods for laundry washing are also available within the house.

Heading back to the entrance hall a door leads through to the open plan kitchen/family room. This spacious triple aspect room offers an abundance of character yet is also practical for modern living. The kitchen area is fitted with a range of matching units and includes a built-in oven and hob, a stainless-steel sink unit and plumbing for a dishwasher. There is also room for an island unit/breakfast bar. Secondary glazed mullion windows overlook the front and the side, whilst a further mullion window overlooks the rear garden. There is also a useful larder/pantry and an original glazed display cabinet at the far end. The kitchen is large enough to also accommodate a sofa or indeed a larger dining table and chairs, this makes a perfect modern family area, whilst still retaining the period charm.

Off the kitchen is the utility room and WC, the utility has plumbing for a washing machine. A further door from the kitchen leads to the rear lobby and subsequently the rear garden.
