A delightful conversion of a former Victorian School constructed of red brick elevations with arched windows and decorative stone brick features. The Old Schoolhouse was built in 1857 and used as the village school until 1901. The Schoolmistress then lived there until 1971 when it was sold by the diocese. The property retains many original features and has been sympathetically extended to provide generous accommodation. The charming porch is currently being used as a library, leading from this is the drawing room with attractive oak flooring and a bath stone fireplace. The fully fitted kitchen was extended in 2001 to provide a dining area with double doors leading onto the garden. There is a further reception room and a downstairs cloakroom, a utility room off the kitchen and boot room.

The Red Pine wood staircase with brass stair rods rises to the first floor where there is a delightful principle bedroom with fitted wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. There are 3 further bedrooms with views of the surrounding countryside and a large family bathroom and generous landing.

The Old Schoolhouse is approached via a driveway with plenty of parking. The delightful rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with borders planted with a mixture of spring and summer bulbs, mature shrubs and trees is private and enclosed and features a lovely raised sun terrace area ideal for entertaining and has stunning views towards the Ridgeway.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
