The Old School House stands facing the medieval Parish Church of St. Peter & St. Paul and was home for more than a century to the teachers who taught the young children of the village.
Grade II Listed and built chiefly of Hornton stone, its origins are perhaps as early as the 17th century. However, more recent official records describe The Old School House and its neighbours as dating from the early to mid 18th century (The Old School House also having a 19th century brick and stone wing to the rear).
Home to the current owners for eighteen years. During that time, the property has been subject to a course of sympathetic refurbishment unearthing a host of period features and materials as well as enhancing those already visible.
Period features include leaded light windows with original wooden mullions and much original glass. Four of the windows have original window seats.
Antique French terracotta tiles are laid throughout the ground floor with the sitting room and dining room accessible from the main entrance hall. The dining room is a wonderful mix of exposed stone and brick with a solid elm bespoke bookcase nestled beside the open fireplace.
The dual aspect sitting room has an altogether different feel with exposed beams, and a large inglenook fireplace with Hornton stone hearth. A door from the sitting room provides access to a beautiful elm staircase which ascends to the first floor.
To the rear of the property, the kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with bespoke oak cupboards finished with River White granite work surfaces and a deep blue gas fired Rayburn cooker provides the focal point to the room.
Wide elm floorboards are a feature of the first floor accommodation and are present in all of the bedrooms. As well as high vaulted ceilings, there are flashes of timber, stone and brickwork throughout.
Windows in the two larger bedrooms, landing, dining room and sitting room are fitted with interior bespoke oak shutters.
The family bathroom is located to the rear of the property and is fitted with a white bathroom suite, offset by handmade green French wall tiles. A three pane leaded light window provides a view across the rear garden.
Externally, there is an enclosed rear garden with paved path and seating area, raised flower beds and a section of lawn. A former pony shed has been re-roofed and provides additional storage space. There is also gated pedestrian access to the rear leading to the A361.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
