**VIEW ONLINE NOW IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME OR IN PERSON, BY APPOINTMENT** A property steeped in history, enjoying characterful features, large grounds and delightful views in a rural setting, this former school certainly has many attributes on offer.

A property which is certainly steeped in history. The Old School is, as its name suggests, being formerly the ‘Board School’ dating from 1884 and converted to residential accommodation during, we understand, the 1970s.

Located within the pretty rural village of Thwing, the property stands in a commanding elevated position with generous off-street parking with outstanding views over adjacent countryside surroundings. The views can be enjoyed from not only the garden but also from most rooms within the house itself.

This really is a rare opportunity to purchase a distinctive home with a wealth of character accommodation, the focal points are numerous but could include the main lounge, a huge space featuring bi-fold doors onto the rear garden as well as stunning fireplace with inset log burning stove. There are beamed ceilings and timber work features in most rooms along with exposed wooden floorboards to many of the ground floor rooms.

The dining room is again, very grand and features space for a large dining table along with beamed ceilings and exposed wooden floors.

The kitchen includes an extensive range of traditionally styled kitchen units along with Range style cooker, space to accommodate a breakfast table and views from multiple windows

There are three main bedrooms to the property, all of which are en-suite along with a stunning galleried landing which is a reception room in itself. All bathrooms including a ground floor shower room are beautifully appointed and feature traditional suites including free-standing baths with claw feet and free-standing washstands. .

Externally, the south facing walled gardens are unlikely to disappoint. Flanked by views over open countryside, the gardens are predominantly lawned interspersed with mature planting and includes a paved patio immediately to the rear of the house plus summerhouse area and ornamental pond.

There is vehicle access and parking for multiple vehicles together with single garage.

Eco-credentials include a biomass heating system.

In summary, with accommodation of around 2000 ft², character features, large gardens and open views, this really is a package of property which is seldom available and certainly a far cry from its modern counterparts.
