DescriptionThis former Victorian school has been beautifully converted to form 3 stylish homes. School House offers contemporary living within an attractive 1890s building, which retains many original features.

This incredibly stylish development offers the new owners an excellent opportunity to live in a traditional building in fabulous location, and yet enjoy all the convenience of modern living with luxury fittings and fixtures.

Doors open up to the courtyard garden, which offers privacy despite being so close to the centre of this vibrant and historic town. The downstairs accommodation also features a large living room with a fireplace as a focal point and a cloakroom with space for washing machine.
First Floor AccommodationCarpeted stairs with an attractive glass balustrade lead to the upstairs landing, where the rooms incorporate original features such as exposed beams, knee braces and padstones.

Extra storage can be found in the boarded loft space, easily accessed from the landing.

A gate opens onto a large, private courtyard garden laid with blue slate paving complemented with attractive white chippings and the original school blackboard can be seen on the courtyard side of the panelling. Outdoor lighting and brick wall boundaries complement the architecture of this superbly converted former school building.
