**Closing Date - Wednesday 25 November at 12noon** A beautifully refurbished village school house
Moneydie School House is believed to date from the late 18th century with additions in the late 19th century and also in the 1960s when it was used as a school. Over the years the rooms at Moneydie School House have been used in a number of different ways and the accommodation remains enormously versatile and full of character. The current owners have transformed the former school hall into a fabulous open plan kitchen/living room with a central island and a sitting area centred around a wood burning stove. With a high ceiling, deep cornicing and pretty astragal windows the room has a lovely mix of traditional and contemporary style that runs throughout the house. The kitchen is a sociable room with lots of space for dining as well as for comfortable seating. A thoughtfully designed and practical boot room has built in storage, a Belfast sink, flagstone flooring and several rows of coat hooks. From the boot room there is also access to a WC and large storage cupboard. One further reception room is currently a playroom but would also work well as an office or a formal dining room.
The principal bedroom suite with dressing room and shower room as well as a double bedroom and family bathroom are also on the ground floor. On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms and a WC on the half landing. The house is decorated beautifully from top to bottom using colours that highlight attractive original features.
At basement level and both with separate access is the boiler room and a studio which is currently used as an office but would lend itself to being a gym or a games room depending on a buyer's requirements. Subject to obtaining the relevant planning consents this room could also be converted into a self contained annexe with its own access and parking.
The entrance to Moneydie School House is via wrought iron gates and a driveway which leads to a gravel parking area at the rear of the house. Pretty stone walls edge various sections of the garden and there is a sheltered terrace which is ideal for sitting out in the summer. An expanse of lawn stretches out to the rear and colourful herbaceous borders have been planted around the front of the house.
Note: Planning permission (now lapsed) has previously been granted for the construction of a three bedroom cottage in the garden as well as a car port attached to the main house.
