A delightful Grade II listed cottage with stunning views.
Old School House was originally constructed in the 1840's and has since been beautifully renovated by the current owners, winning the Chilterns Building Design Award. Retaining the original character and style, the building enjoys high ceilings, exposed beams and large gothic windows, as well as enjoying the benefits of a sympathetic extension.
The house is entered via an open plan kitchen/dining room, with exposed wooden floorboards and shaker style cabinets. The room is bright and airy with light flooding in from the sky light above. Leading from this room is a large, dual aspect sitting room that enjoys the School Houses' original character features, with high ceilings, an open fireplace and large windows. Off this room is the original, handsome, stone porch, allowing access onto the lane. There is a reception room that could also act as a bedroom, it is light and open, enjoying a fireplace and a door to the garden with views of the valley below.
There are two large, well-proportioned bedrooms, both double aspect with high ceilings and large gothic windows that overlook different aspects of the garden. The principal bedroom enjoys an en suite shower room. There is a separate family bathroom and a laundry cupboard with washer and dryer . There is also a spacious attic that can be accessed via wooden steps, which with the appropriate consents has potential to become a bedroom.
The Old School House is approached via a quiet lane, with a carport and parking for several cars in the driveway. The beautifully manicured garden surrounds the house and has breathtaking views of the valley below. There is a lovely patio area at the back of the garden perfect for alfresco dining.
