This former village school and headmasters cottage was built in 1866 and later extended to the side to create an additional classroom. The property retains a wealth of character and interesting features and has been recently redesigned and refurbished by the current owner, including the creation of two new double bedrooms and ensuite and has been sub-divided providing versatile accommodation set over two floors which would suit a large family or those looking for a comfortable home with, bed and breakfast or income potential.

The principal classroom now serves as the spacious dual aspect kitchen/dining/living room of the main schoolhouse which has original wooden parquet flooring, a feature oil fired range and feature open fireplace with a cast iron multi fuel burning stove set on a raised hearth. A bespoke kitchen is fitted with a range of base cabinets with recently fitted double glazed windows to front and French doors to rear opening to the garden and enjoying the fabulous views over the bordering farmland. The secondary classroom is now the master bedroom with ensuite, and there is a further double bedroom, family shower room and utility room on the ground floor. Two further double bedrooms on the first floor, both with ensuite facilities and one with a Juliette balcony with French doors enjoying the views.

The headmasters cottage is currently a successful holiday let and is approached via the original main entrance. This side has a delightful sitting room with wood burning stove set on a slate hearth and a fully fitted kitchen/dining room with built-in appliances and fabulous flagstone slate flooring and enjoys the lovely aspect over the garden to the rear and countryside beyond. There is a useful rear porch which completes the cottage ground floor. On the first floor are two generous double bedrooms and a shower room. The cottage is joined to the main schoolhouse by an interconnecting door allowing use as one large dwelling.

Outside there is driveway parking on both sides of the property allowing independent parking for both the main house and cottage with low maintenance gardens to the front. The gardens continue to both sides of the property and to the rear are level attractive gardens enclosed by natural stone walling backing on fields and enjoying the views. The garden is currently split by a wooden fence providing independent gardens to both sides but could easily be removed if not required. There is an expanse of lawn on both sides and various raised boxes used for the growing of fruit and vegetables, a greenhouse and a good-sized wooden garden storage shed.
