The front of the property, (which was the former playground for the school) is a large area laid to gravel for ease of maintenance. This area has been attractively landscaped with raised wooden beds and borders containing a variety of shrubs and flowers. An iron gate with pillars gives access to the road and the garden is enclosed with stone walling and timber fencing. Gates to either side of the property lead via gravelled pathways to the rear which is again gravelled and has an attractive patio area and raised shrub beds. Gate to the rear of the property leads to a further area of gravel which is accessed off Northbrook Drive and provides parking for three/four cars.

This beautifully presented, Grade II listed former primary school has been sympathetically renovated over almost two years by the current owner who have retained many of the original features whilst creating a spacious, family home with a modern feel.
The beautiful lounge/dining room which is in the original part of the property is open plan with two feature fireplaces, one with a log burner. The open plan kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of units including an island, Belfast style sink and Rangemaster oven. Also to the ground floor is a cloakroom, utility room and study.
Bedroom accommodation to the ground floor comprises two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room and the other with an ensuite bathroom with separate shower. This room also has it’s own access to the outside.

Originally a single storey building, a mezzanine level has been added with an attractive staircase from the lounge to two first floor, en suite bedrooms both with walk in dressing rooms. The property is enhanced by LPG central heating and double glazing.
The grounds surround the property on all sides providing low maintenance outside space, with attractive, well-stocked raised beds and borders. There is off street parking (accessed to the rear of the property off Northbrook Drive) for three/four cars. An early inspection to viewing is the only way to fully appreciate this characterful home.
