The Old School House is Grade II listed and along with the splendid church which stands nearby, was built in the 1860's of red sandstone from Clennon Quarry. It has been converted from the former village school, which relocated a few years ago, and the owners have kept a mural of the school created by the schoolchildren and which still hangs on a wall outside. The property has been well maintained by the current owners and retains a wealth of charm and character. The inviting accommodation has two reception rooms which run together, a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room, and five bedrooms, two of which have ensuite bathrooms. The current inernal arrangement provides a good degree of flexibility, suitable for a growing family, those requiring additional space - perhaps working from home or the rear section could be used as a separate annexe for the extended family or relative. Outside, the well tended gardens are a delight and divided into compartments so that there is a place to be at any time of the day. There are three lawned areas and three terraces, one of which is retained from the old school playground. Completing the external space is a double garage, plenty of parking and turning space.

The Old School House combines a character home with modern amenities and an internal viewing is essential to fully appreciate the accommodation on offer.
