High ceilings, arched windows, approx 40' living room and 3 double bedrooms. ROOF TERRACE, private GARDENS and off road parking. Great views and lovely walks close by.
Stylishly spacious, this former village school offers unique living accommodation, sympathetically converted to retain the origins of the building but with an open contemporary feel. Vaulted ceilings, with an abundance of light flooding into all aspects of the property, original arched windows are a feature and timber floors are laid throughout. This unusual home offers creative social space as well as good family accommodation.
The entrance to the property is via a SUN PORCH/GARDEN ROOM into the open plan LIVING/DINING ROOM, formally the class room. A generous wood burning stove set into a brick fireplace is a focal point within the extensive open plan living room. With spiral staircases at each end taking you to gallary, bedroom accommodation and door to the ROOF TERRACE with lovely views to the church and surrounding countryside. The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM has a large centrally placed skylight bringing natural light to the room, which has a range of shaker style wall and base units. The worktops have a circular inset sink and drainer and space and plumbing for your dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is an eye level double electric oven and 5 ring inset gas hob. A useful PANTRY just off the kitchen has a butler sink, plumbing for your washing machine and useful shelving and storage. A door from the kitchen leads out to a private, enclosed garden.
Via the spiral staircases, on the First Floor are the MASTER BEDROOM with EN-SUITE CLOAK ROOM. BEDROOM 2 is also a lovely double room, with Velux window allowing light from above. BEDROOM 3 is located on the ground floor, at a slightly lower level, off the main living area and is a good size double with windows overlooking the garden. The GALLERIED STUDY doubles as additional guest accommodation and overlooks the living area. On the ground floor the FAMILY BATHROOM houses a luxuriously deep bath set into a tiled surround, with a separate shower, wash hand basin and WC.
There is a large STORAGE AREA under the property which could be imaginatively utilised as a play room as it has certain height limitations. The boiler for heating and hot water is located here. GARDENS are laid to lawn with mature trees, hedging, shrubs and are enclosed by fencing, with areas set aside for enjoying the sunshine. There is a further OUTBUILDING WITH POTENTIAL for a small studio with power and light.
