About this property

  • A detached 1930s dwelling, positioned on the edge of the village with a mature garden, with southerly aspect and rural views, The School House has been extensively renovated, reconfigured and extended during the current owner's tenure.

    Believed to have been the headmaster's residence for the village's school until its closure some 25 years ago, the house and gardens offer a high degree of privacy with generous parking and garaging, and a layout that combines a contemporary finish with favoured 1930s features. The extended accommodation was designed to connect well with, and enjoy the views over, the gardens.

    The house is entered into a bright, dual-aspect entrance porch and boot room, from which an inner hall leads past concertina glazed doors to the wood floored dining room and a utility room, to the kitchen.

    The large and spacious family kitchen is a statement room with impact. Glazed to three sides (largely fully glazed) and with travertine tiled floors, it offers fabulous views over garden to which there is also access, and incorporates a wonderful fitted suite with integrated appliances. It is also open to the dining room, ensuring a convivial flow for family life and for entertaining inside or outside.

    A door from the dining room also accesses the principal sitting room, which has a study beyond it. Like the dining room, the symmetrical sitting room also has a wooden floor, with a wood burning stove within its fireplace and external glazed French doors to the garden's terrace.

    An inner stairwell hall access an en suite ground floor double bedroom, whilst at first floor level the landing accesses a further four bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal double bedroom suite has a dressing room and a full suite en suite bathroom, with separate shower cubicle, with a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden.

    An in and out driveway has two gated entrances, offering parking for several vehicles and access to the double garage. The formal garden lies to the rear of the house, form which there are views over the adjoining pasture, which wrap around the south and east facing boundaries. A wide terrace adjoins the house itself, connecting well to the kitchen and sitting room, with lawn sweeping to the eastern boundary, with flowering borders, mature apple trees and an evening terrace in the south east corner of the plot. The property extends to about 0.25 of an acre in total.

I owned a 1930s house for many years and love their feel and features, and this lovely house has splendid views over its gardens, coupled with standout principal rooms and an amazing layout for entertaining and for connecting to the garden. It's a great modernised edge of village family home.
