The Old School House, like The Old Chapel, is a charming Grade II listed former Sunday School that has undergone an incredible transformation into a unique, spacious and stylish home.

The owners of this fabulous property have recently carried out an extensive and sympathetic conversion from school to home. Creating a successful fusion of contemporary features with an industrial/characterful twist.

The heart of this outstanding property is its impressive beamed and vaulted open plan living room. This stunning space offers flexible and flowing accommodation that offers a cosy yet contemporary feel, with the most beautiful natural travertine limestone flooring and modern underfloor heating. It also benefits from vast amounts of natural light let in through the stunning original windows.

The Neptune fitted kitchen/breakfast area has been designed to work seamlessly with the surroundings and has beautiful granite worktops and contrasting units. A built in wine cooler dishwasher fridge and freezer finish off this well planned space.

Nestled under the galleried master bedroom suite is the relaxing snug/tv area, tucked away so as not to allow light to spoil the picture.

The remainder of this incredible room is currently used as a social/dining space and is the perfect spot to impress and entertain guests.

A unique private master bedroom suite has been created above the living space in a fantastic private galleried area. There is a cloakroom and open plan bathing and sleeping area, something that has to be seen to be fully appreciated.

The remaining two double bedrooms can be found off the hallway; one having a magnificent beamed and vaulted ceiling similar to the main reception. These are serviced by a sleek, contemporary style shower room that incorporates a discreet utility area and a vast walk-in shower. The shower has powerful twin heads and is complimented by natural contrasting slate flooring.

The garden is laid to lawn with a paved sun terrace. A gravelled path extends to the side of the property and in turn leads to the front gate and Muscliffe Lane.

The area around Throop and Holdenhurst is the site of the original Saxon settlements whilst Bournemouth as we know it today was just marshland. A topographical Dictionary of England by Samuel Lewis published in 1848 refers to Throop as a "Pleasant and secluded village" which is as it remains to this day being a green belt conservation area complete with original gas lamps.

With the river Stour located a just a short walk away it is a picture perfect place to get in some fishing, have a picnic or just enjoy the scenery. There are lovely footpaths around the area, and Throop Fishery is renowned for having some of the best barbel and chub fishing in the country. One of the main characteristics of modern-day Throop Village is "Throop Mill" which has been present in some regard from the 12th century passing through various ownership's including monks from Quarr Abbey and was mentioned in the Domesday Book because of the tales that surround it.

Despite the peaceful location, Throop is within minutes of schools, shops and transport links as well as giving easy access to Christchurch and Bournemouth, Poole and the New Forest. Bournemouth and Southampton airports are both within easy reach.

The Chapel to the front was constructed in 1828 as Throop Independent Chapel, later Throop Congregational Church and then Throop United Reformed Church until its closure in 2009. The Sunday school built to the rear in 1830 was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in 1866 and is also Grade 11 listed. The headstones and alter tomb memorials to the front of the chapel which date from the 1800s illustrate the historical significance of the Chapel to local prominent families, many of which are still familiar names in the vicinity today. Numerous passers by frequently recall joyous occasions such as marriages or baptisms which took place in the Chapel and, with the older residents, fond memories are recalled of their attendance of the Sunday School to the rear.

The Chapel and Schoolhouse were converted in 2016 into two stunning independent residences by the current owners with careful consideration to their origins. Both unique in character and rich with history, they have been expertly designed to celebrate and preserve their past use whilst providing a warm and welcoming ambience incorporating modern technology and amenities.
