A great opportunity to acquire a converted period school located in the heart of this picturesque village and enjoying splendid country views. Once the village school the property dates back to 1896, is set over two floors and has a wealth of period features and much flexible accommodation. Of particular note are the two light and airy reception rooms which are the real hub of the house; once the school hall and adjacent nursery, the rooms have an abundance of charm and character having stunning vaulted ceilings with curved beams, large windows and French doors opening on to the rear garden. A country style kitchen has a good range of cupboards, a butler sink, space for appliances and a useful pantry and access on to the terrace. Additionally on this floor there are two bedrooms (currently arranged as reception rooms) both with focal feature fireplaces and attractive garden aspects, two family bathrooms and a generous utility room.
Off the bright first floor landing are two further bedrooms and a large shower room with a wash basin, WC and large shower.
In all, this is a wonderful period property with great potential located in a delightful setting and offering versatile living space.
