This charming detached period house has been sympathetically renovated and improved by the current owners who have created a truly wonderful home. The property is nestled in the heart of the village with a pretty fore garden, private parking and gated access to the front. The atmospheric sitting room features exposed wooden floor, wall and ceiling timbers, a large inglenook fireplace housing a Clearview wood burning stove and a beautiful oak staircase rising to the first floor. An archway opens to an L shaped kitchen/dining room which benefits from dual aspect windows affording plenty of natural light and views over the gardens. The kitchen area has a tiled floor, a range of painted wooden units, a Rayburn Range Master (with two boilers controlling the heating and cooking separately), integral dishwasher, space for an American style fridge/ freezer and access to the rear garden. The dining area has exposed wooden flooring and window overlooking the front, creating a wonderful informal entertaining space. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a useful utility room accessed from the covered porch with door off to a cloakroom. (Planning permission exists to link this to the house).
Stairs rise to a light and spacious galleried landing with picture windows, exposed wall timbers and high ceiling. There are three charming bedrooms and a sleek modern bathroom with white suite, built-in storage, under floor heating and shower over the bath. Old School House is immaculately presented and subtly decorated throughout.
