A stunning two bedroom period apartment situated in a handsome former school house. Period features throughout with vaulted timber ceilings and providing far reaching countryside views. Idyllic village location and sold with no onward chain.


Description

The Old School House was built in 1830 and was the principal school for Combe Down's children and those from the surrounding villages. The early Victorian building was converted to two apartments and house back in the 1990's. It sits in an elevated location on the corner of Church Road and Belmont Road and is afforded beautiful far reaching views of the Midford valley and beyond. It is a very elegant building with tall Gothic style windows to its facade and is Grade II listed as a building with architectural importance. You enter the apartment to the side aspect of the building. The entrance hallway provides access to stairs to the upper floor, a storage cupboard, space for a washing machine and a further door leads to another storage area. Two flights of stairs lead you up to the upper floor landing. The landing provides access to the bedrooms, bathroom, sitting room, storage cupboard and kitchen diner. The kitchen diner is a delight with exposed timber vaulted ceiling and those tall dual aspect Gothic windows letting light flood in with a south and westerly aspect. The views from here stretch across the Midford valley and the rolling countryside beyond. The kitchen has a range of bespoke painted wooden base and wall units with solid oak worktops and inset Belfast sink. Integral appliances include dishwasher and Smeg oven with hob. There is further space for a large American style fridge freezer. At the end of the hallway you enter into the spacious sitting room which is the real feature room to this property. The tall Gothic style windows make this a light and airy room and afford those far reaching views again. The exposed timber vaulted ceiling gives a real sense of space and to the rear of the room you find a wooden ladder leads up to the mezzanine which could double up as a study space or snug. There are two bedrooms off of the hallway with bedroom one being a spacious double with built-in wardrobes and again providing views. Bedroom two is a single in size. The bathroom is very nicely presented with large wall and floor tiles, bath, shower, washbasin, WC and heated towel rail. Externally to the side aspect of the building is a stone chipped garden seating area and to the front aspect a dedicated off-street parking space. In our opinion a unique opportunity as this is one of, if not the, nicest period apartments in the village. It would be ideal for a professional couple, downsizers, buy-to-let investors or used as a pied-a-terre.
