BRIEF DETAILS

This charming and well-presented detached property is situated in its own good sized gardens and grounds and comprises the original Village School, which has now been sympathetically converted into a lovely rural home which incorporates the original School Master's House, which is currently included in the main residence, but could provide independent annexe or let separately to provide a useful income.

The property has a wealth of character and charm throughout, retaining some of the original features including the Old Bell Tower which was retained, and offers generous accommodation set over two floors, with a doorway from the driveway opening to a Garden Room with windows across the frontage, attractive quarry tiled flooring and a glass inset looking down into the original Well. There is a useful Utility Room off with ample cupboard storage and Belfast sink, housing the oil fired central heating boiler. A door then leads through to the original School Room which now forms a most impressive feature to the property, being a lovely spacious Living Room with exposed original wooden flooring throughout, fireplace with inset multi-fuel stove, windows and French doors opening out to the patio gardens and overlooked by a lovely Galleried Landing. Off the Living Room a door leads through to a good sized Family Kitchen with a range of matching kitchen units including ceramic one and a half bowl single drainer sink unit, integrated appliances including fridge/freezer and dishwasher, together with LPG gas hob and electric double oven and grill at easy height. There are double glazed windows to front and rear elevations and ample space for a breakfast table. From here a door leads through to the original School Master's House, where there is a separate Dining Room with quarry tiled flooring and windows again overlooking the gardens, with a Side Hallway with a door leading out to an Enclosed Porch, which in turn leads to the driveway to the rear, with a further door leading off to a Cloakroom/Utility. From the Dining Room, a Rear Hallway has a door out onto the gardens and a further door leading to the Sitting Room which has a feature open fireplace with raised hearth and ornamental wooden surround and double glazed windows to two elevations, with built-in cupboards and shelving to either side of the chimney breast. Also leading off the main Living Room is a Ground Floor Bathroom with a modern suite to include bath, separate good sized shower cubicle with mains shower, low flush w.c. and hand wash basin inset to vanity unit.

The First Floor Accommodation is accessed via two separate staircases. The main staircase leading up from the Living Room to an impressive Galleried Landing with built-in cupboards/wardrobes and leading off to the Main Bedroom area with character features to include original trusses, circular porthole type window and Velux roof light and En-Suite Bathroom. Off the Galleried Landing, a further door leads to a Second Double Bedroom with feature original trusses, Velux roof light and a range of fitted cupboards and wardrobes.

A second staircase from the original School Master's House leads up to a Small Landing with door off to Bedroom three, which has double glazed windows to two elevations, fitted original fireplace (currently not in use) and built-in cupboard/wardrobe, with a door leading to the En-Suite Bathroom. Also off the Landing is a Fourth Bedroom, again a good sized room with dual aspect and built-in wardrobe/cupboard.
