A fabulous single storey Grade II listed former school house with well proportioned rooms, stunning period features and beautifully landscaped garden.


The Old School is a well presented single storey property believed to date back in part to the mid- ighteenth century.

To the rear of the house is the fabulous old school room with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams and wall timbers. There's a lovely focal stone fireplace with wood burning stove and feature Gothic style windows with arched transoms. Towards the front of the house is an impressive bright and airy kitchen diner extensively fitted with wooden wall and base units housing integrated appliances and benefitting from an adjoining utility room. Off the hallway is a formal dining room with French door leading to the rear terrace and lovely garden beyond. There is a master en suite bedroom and two further double bedrooms. A stylish family bathroom and rear porch with cloakroom completes the accommodation.

There are steps leading up to the garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with mature herbaceous borders and is enclosed by hedges and timber panel fencing. Within the garden is a painted brick outbuilding and a timber summerhouse.
