    About this property

    • The Old School House is a stunning mid-19th Century Grade II listed village house believed to have originally been built as part of the Sherborne Estate. Built of Cotswold stone with traditional stone tiles, it has a particularly attractive front façade with rusticated quoins and stone mullion windows. The accommodation is primarily arranged over three floors and extends to just over 2,800 sq ft in total. Throughout the house there is a lovely elegant feel with high ceilings and ample natural light due to sash windows and south facing orientation.

      The current owner has spent considerable time to preserve as many of the period features as possible which include original fireplaces, shutters, Elm floorboards, a flagstone floor and a particularly fine staircase with a delicate handrail.

      In addition to the main house there is a fantastic separate one bedroom cottage to the rear. This is linked via a study from the main house and offers significant potential. The cottage has its own access and has in the past been used as an artist studio. There is also a charming courtyard garden at the rear and a large mature garden to the front.
