Sowerbys are delighted to offer a wonderful piece of historic property presented in a fantastic manner to the market. The Old School in Terrington St Clement has stood in the centre of this well-appointed village since the late 1800s and is now a substantial family home with some wonderful features. We suggest that only by first hand inspection can the house be appreciated since there is much more than meets the eye. This is one of the finest conversions of an old school to a home we have seen.

The property is accessed through its original entrance vestibule with windows to either side. The main old school building is now a breathtaking sitting room measuring 9.5m x 6.0m with open fire, further wood-burner, original flooring and an open ceiling height of an incredible 7m with a mezzanine study to one end. Next is the dining room with more solid wood flooring and another open fire. The fantastic double aspect kitchen has an AGA and measures an impressive 6.0m x 5.5m and there is a pantry, office and side entrance. The former infant school is also attached which the vendors use as a less formal sitting room, again there is a wood-burning stove and original ceiling on display. The property lends itself perfectly to multi-generational living if required and previously the vendors family have lived with them quite comfortably with their own space in rear of the building where there is a family room (6.0m x 5.0m) a second kitchen and modern bathroom. One starts to see the versatility the property has as you tour around.

The view from the mezzanine is impressive looking back down over the sitting room. Upstairs there are five bedrooms with character oozing out in the form of ceiling trusses and exposed walls on display. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite facilities and there is also a family bathroom.

Outside the vendors have transformed the gardens of the school and they have opened out and created a wonderful selection of garden areas to sit and enjoy to all sides of the property which also includes bespoke wrought-iron gates, block paved driveway and cracking 6.0m x 5.0m cart lodge.
