Detached stone built grade II listed former school tastefully and imaginatively reinterpreted into a wonderful family home of immense character and charm. Originally dating back to 1640 with later additions in 1877, the property seamlessly blends old and new with flexible open plan spaces and a useful top floor studio/annexe accessed via a separate staircase.
Arranged over three floors the accommodation comprises to the ground floor a double height sitting room with exposed beams and wooden shutters, a cosy family room with open fireplace, an open plan kitchen dining room, a utility room and a cloakroom. There are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom to the first floor which are arranged around a galleried landing above the sitting room. The top floor has its own staircase and has been converted to provide additional flexible accommodation, either as an annexe, a guest suite or a workspace, with its own shower room, open plan kitchen sitting room and double bedroom. Externally there is a lovely low maintenance private walled garden.
