Former school, 4/5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, built on a 0.6 acre plot.

Externally the building is in the architectural fashion of its' time - internally every aspect is geared to modern open plan and technology.

There is a huge granite and Indian stone patio to the rear, with both ground and raised planters, with the remainder of the land laid to lawn. The entire perimeter is fully secure with stock fencing, much of this shielding a mature hedgerow that is abundant with wildlife.

Modern outside lighting magically illuminates the front of the house at night and PIR triggered security lighting protects both ends of the property. Additionally, a pair of Bose outdoor speakers are fitted to the rear for entertaining on those balmy summer nights.

ANNEXE 39' 11" x 19' 11" (12.192m x 6.096m) This detached annexe building has been built to a full housing specification and it would not take much (only PP) to convert it to a 2 bedroom dwelling if so desired.
Currently, the ground floor is made up of 2 distinct areas: A small fitted kitchen area with sink, a fully tiled shower room with wash hand basin and WC. The building has its own combi boiler and central heating system (radiators).
There is a staircase leading to the first floor which is one huge space running the length of the building. The current vendor was going to use this room as an office but it could equally be utilised as a home gym, games room, or split into 2 rooms. Fitted with Velux windows and a huge picture window to take advantage of the rear vista from the upstairs space.
The other half of this building is a double garage with up and over electric doors and has power and lighting.
This building could be used for storage, house a relative, or provide a workspace at home to negate the need to travel to work.
SUMMARY Rarely does a property combining great historic restored features with all mod cons and great outside space that could also accommodate a multi-generational family come to the market in this area.
This house has everything you could wish for - and more. It has been finished to an impeccable standard with the current owners sparing no expense to make this a truly wonderful home that they will be sad to leave. A viewing is essential to appreciate everything that this property has to offer.
