School House is a charming property which presents a beautiful understated period façade, from the impressive chimney and intricate roof tiles to the half-timbered porch above the front door. Internally there is superb scope for renovation and extension, and if done in a manner sensitive to the age of the property, one will have a truly beautiful home, teeming with the character only this type of property can offer. Outside to front the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with walled/hedged boundaries creating privacy, and to the rear established orchard trees add to the private, rural feel. To the rear there are also a range of outbuildings, which will be replaced by the contemporary extension.
Full Planning Permission (16/03033/FUL) has been granted to convert and extend School House into an approximately 1,894 sq.ft. unique blend of historic and contemporary living in a delightful rural setting.
