Welcome to School House
An attractive partially glazed door provides access into the south east facing entrance porch with walk off matting and characterful exposed stone walls. The porch is open to the hallway which leads to both the living room and open plan kitchen/ living/ dining room which is a spacious and versatile room.
The living/ dining portion has a south-east facing window with picturesque countryside outlook creating a delightful place to sit with a morning coffee and enjoy the views. The space under the stairs provides a versatile area which is currently being used as a home office, perfect for working from home. A recess in the chimney breast provides a neat TV nook while Karndean flooring flows seamlessly through both the living space and kitchen.
The kitchen itself is spacious with oak worktops, oil fired double AGA, under counter storage, shelving, Belfast style sink, island with four person breakfast bar and integrated dishwasher. There is also a window out to the north-west drawing in natural light.
To the rear of the kitchen there is a utility which has further oak work top space, generous storage and a walk-in pantry. There is an external rear door as well as a door leading to the bathroom.
This attractive and good sized bathroom has a lovely roll top, footed bath, large walk in shower, toilet with bidet attachment and sink with vanity cabinet above.
From the hall the living room sits on the front aspect of the home with delightful south-east facing window drawing in the beautiful countryside views enjoyed from the property. A fireplace with flagged hearth and wood burner create an attractive focal point, making this a lovely homely room. There is Karndean flooring throughout and a charming nook to the side of the fireplace.
A door leads into the sunroom with exposed stone walls and large windows to both the south-west and south-east ensuring it is not only beautifully bright, but also enjoys a lovely rural outlook. It is currently being used as a wonderfully calm office with a view but of course makes a fantastic place to sit and enjoy the views with a book.
From the main hall, stairs lead to the first floor with split landing where a window at the top provides generous amounts of natural light.
The first bedroom, which lies to the north west corner of the home, is a lovely sized room and benefits from a south-east facing window which draws in exceptional amounts of natural light as well as stunning views over the countryside beyond. An exposed chimney creates a lovely feature, filling this room with character and charm. There is also a great dressing area with south-east facing window, filled with fitted wardrobes; this used to be a third bedroom and could be changed back should any purchaser wish.
The second bedroom has a partially vaulted ceiling, again, making this room feel especially charming. Another south-east facing window offers rolling rural views and plenty of natural light.
School House sits within a surrounding mature plot of circa 1/4 acre with exceptional views which can be enjoyed from various area of the gardens, including a hot tub positioned to make the most of this outlook.
There is a generous lawned area to the south-west which will no doubt enjoy plenty of sun throughout the day, making this a great place to grow flowers or just sit and enjoy the views in the sun.
There are various kitchen garden areas with three small poly tunnels and a green house, perfect for growing various fruits, vegetables and herbs.
A flagged patio creates a great space for entertaining or a peaceful seating area.
A double garage with power, lighting and side door offers plenty of parking and storage space with easy access to the gardens. The driveway in front of the garage also offers additional parking space and access to the front of the garage via an up and over style door.
