About this property

  • The Old Schoolhouse is an exceptional Georgian house built circa 1750 and fully restored approximately 10 years ago by our architect clients. The property has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment and retains a wealth of traditional and contemporary features.
    The property was reroofed 8 years ago and new sash and case windows were added with the exception of two windows. New high speed fibre internet has been installed.
    The accommodation on the ground floor begins with an entrance hallway with stone stair case leading to the upper level; this then opens into a reception hallway with a flagstone floor and cloakroom / WC off. There is a beautiful drawing room (formerly the school classroom) with a fine working fireplace, pretty astragal windows and a useful store room to the rear. The well proportioned fitted dining sized kitchen has a wooden floor and cream wood burning Esse and to the west of the ground floor is a sitting room, again with a working fireplace. The annexe to the west of the property comprises a bedroom with a French door to the rear opening onto the garden and the River plus a bathroom with three piece suite. The upper floor accommodation of the Old Schoolhouse comprises two additional well proportioned double bedrooms, inner hallway with traditional box bed and a bathroom with three piece suite.

    The surrounding gardens are a credit to the owners and are mainly lawned with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs with the rear garden bordering the picturesque Shinnel Water.
