A superb Grade II listed former School House. Video tour available.
The property is a Grade II listed former school house which has been creatively refurbished to a high standard to provide a fabulous five bedroom family home of immense character and charm.
The extensive accommodation is arranged over two floors, imaginatively redesigned to retain the feeling of a school house yet provide the style of accommodation suitable for a family. The architect has created a mezzanine floor with large void areas with vaulted ceilings to provide a feeling of tremendous space
The sitting room is the principal reception room with bi-fold doors leading out on to the central courtyard and a vaulted ceiling ensures that the room is spectacular, particularly with the cantilevered mezzanine gallery which overlooks it. The kitchen/dining room is beautifully fitted by Dream Design, again with a mezzanine level over and vaulted ceiling it is a spectacular room with a door that leads into the wine cellar. There is a separate family room with vaulted ceiling, a ground floor cloakroom, shower and a utility room.

The property is approached via a gated gravel driveway leading to a parking and turning area adjacent to the various outbuildings.
The gardens and grounds are largely laid to lawn with a wealth of flowering shrubs and plants and the backdrop of the Forest on its boundary. Pathways provide good access around the house and there is a superb central courtyard terrace accessed from the kitchen/dining room and living room which provides the perfect entertaining area with the backdrop of an attractive water feature. The gardens also benefit from a well-tended vegetable garden with greenhouse.
