About this property

  • St. Margarets Old School is a delightful family home occupying a central position in the popular hamlet of Underriver. The property dates from 1897 and combines period features with modern embellishments to provide versatile accommodation arranged over two floors, set in delightful gardens. Salient points include a stylish kitchen and bathroom suites, casement windows, vaulted ceilings, skylights, some exposed floor and wall timbers and a spiral staircase. Also of note are the established front and rear gardens.

    The double aspect drawing room has a feature fireplace and doors opening to the rear terrace, creating an ideal space for both family living and formal entertaining. A spiral staircase leads to the galleried study.

    The reception hall features a wood burning stove and doors to the drawing room.

    The stylish kitchen/breakfast room is equipped with a range of wall and base units, space for appliances and a range style cooker. There is an island in the middle, also with granite work surfaces and storage cupboards under, and a stable door to outside. A utility room with storage space and a sink adjoins.

    A double aspect sitting room and a well-appointed family bathroom complete the ground floor.

    The first floor comprises four bedrooms, two with built-in cupboards and one with built-in wardrobes, and a well-appointed family bathroom with separate shower and corner bath.

    To the front is a large driveway providing ample off road parking bordered by lawn. A pedestrian gate leads to the rear garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with a paved terrace area and is enclosed by stocked flowerbeds with some deciduous trees. A mixture of hedging and close boarded fencing to the perimeter provides privacy.

I love this position and the character St. Margarets has – what a cracking house in a superb village on the outskirts of the town, surrounded by beautiful countryside.
