About this property

  • Thought to date in part to the 19th century and constructed of brick and flint elevations, The Old School House is a charming family home, presented in very good order.

    An oak-framed porch leads from the parking area into the boot room, with butler's sink and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a downstairs' loo and a door through to the kitchen, recently extended by the current owners, which is now the heart of the house. A fantastic open plan space with vaulted ceiling and oak floorboards, there is a large central island with breakfast bar, an Aga, fitted base units and doors out to the east-facing terrace. There is also a larder just off. The kitchen leads on to the dining room, which currently doubles up as a play area for the children, and then through to the sitting room, with exposed brick chimney and log-burner. The original front door opens in from the front garden.

    Upstairs, there are three bedrooms which share a family bathroom, with bath, sink, WC and walk-in shower.

    A gravel drive provides plenty of parking. The owners have recently landscaped the garden to create a deep stone-flagged terrace which provides a spacious area for play, sitting and outdoor dining. The level lawn is interspersed with fruit trees and there is also a secure garden to the front of the house, with gated access to the lane.

    To one side is a small area of kitchen garden with raised beds. Within the grounds is a Shepherds Hut (available by separate negotiation), fitted for home working and/or an extra guest bedroom. A former timber-framed garage on the driveway has been converted into an outbuilding with workshop and stores.

This is such a great cottage, beautifully done, with a far bigger garden and grounds than you would expect.
