Built in the 1860s, the wisteria-clad former school has been lovingly renovated to retain all of its charm and character yet presents a modern light and airy feel throughout with versatile living space. The detached Garage offers not only the enticement of an immediate Workshop with 2 studio rooms above providing ample space for Home Office or hobbies but also holds possibilities to convert and adjoin the house; subject to all relevant planning permissions.
Enjoying an idyllic location encircled with manageable gardens opening out to sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, School House is reached down a long private road passing Brinsop Church. The neighbouring lake is home to swans and a stone marker commemorating the spot where it is believed St. George slew the dragon. For leisure, there are ample dog walking routes including into Credenhill woods and The Herefordshire Golf Club is a mere 2 miles away. The many amenities of Credenhill with its Ofsted “Good” primary school, large general store, post office, excellent Chinese restaurant, community centre and sports facilities lie only 1.5 miles away. Tillington at 3 miles distance also offers a shop and popular gastro pub, while the city of Hereford is 6.5 miles.
Entrance Hall – utilising one of the original entrances for pupils, the Entrance Hall delights with a gothic arch lead window, period-style red and black decorative floor tiles and offers good storage space for coats and boots.
Sitting Room – an inviting room with engineered oak flooring is flooded with natural light from the bi-fold doors leading out into the gardens and framing enchanting views across open countryside to the wooded hillside beyond. The room is made cosy with a red brick fireplace with tile hearth home to a cream wood burner, with painted mantel above. To one side of the fireplace are 2 high open display shelves, while to the other a gothic arch window with stained glass detailing and a deep sill frames views to the rear courtyard.
Sun Room – the lovely oak-framed rear extension with quartet of Velux windows, exposed roof beams and wall of glazing basks in sweeping views across garden and fields beyond. It offers a highly flexible living space ideal as a more informal retreat, Family and Play room, or equally serviceable as a Home Office or Reading room if the views do not prove too distracting. A half-glazed external door opens into the Courtyard and onto the Deck, a private spot ideal for outdoor dining.
Dining Room – set to the front of the house with French Doors opening into the garden, the Dining Room like the Sun Room offers another versatile room with doors connecting it directly to both Kitchen and Sitting Room.
Kitchen – fully-fitted the bright Kitchen with smart black granite countertops and white painted wood flooring offers an array of storage. Neatly positioned under the rise of the staircase with built-in under-stairs cupboard to the side is a dedicated breakfast preparation nook, with space for a fridge/freezer to the far end. The stainless steel, underslung sink and a half with integral drainer is set below triple window with views over the side garden. Between glass-fronted, recessed lit wall units sits space for a large range cooker with stainless steel splash back and hood above, framed by decorative surround and with pull-out bottle racks to either side. Opposite lies a breakfast bar with low storage shelf, ideal for informal dining.
Utility/Boot Room – the fitted, solid wood countertop has an underslung, slim-line ceramic sink with storage unit beneath and space below for both dishwasher and washing machine. A single glazed arched lead window, 2 skylights contained in the pitched roof and a half-glazed External Door opening into the side garden, naturally illuminates this practical space.
Downstairs Shower Room – the spacious room provides a large walk-in shower enclosure, WC, period-style pedestal basin, chrome heated towel rail and is completed with solid oak flooring.
Bedroom One – the spacious double Bedroom has white painted flooring and a high-pitched roof with beams. A gable mirror reflects the flood of natural light and pillar detailing above the large window sill which is deep enough for seating. This soothing room enjoys delightful views across the garden to the wooded hillside beyond. To the corner is a built-in, double wardrobe with orate ironwork and open quatrefoil detailing.
Bedroom Two – two steps lead down onto the rich-hued wooden flooring of the second double Bedroom, a room of delightful detailing with period black fire surround and tongue and groove panelling. Above the window with lovely views over the front garden, roof beams draw the eye to a high shelf framed by decorative turned pillars. Above the door a fanlight window highlights the landing skylight.
Bedroom Three – the carpeted double Bedroom with window framing views over the side garden and hillside beyond also enjoys a touch of character with the exposed beams of the roof’s pitch giving a more modern touch with stained timber.
Family Bathroom – recently refurbished with a modern Laura Ashley suite, the Bathroom offers a full bath with sleek low profile side wall taps and controls for the wall-mounted rain-head shower with folding glass screen. The room features a basin with integral deep drawer storage beneath and is completed by a WC and chrome heated towel rail. The period character of the exposed beams is masterfully combined with the modern appeal of black granite floor tiles and underfloor heating.
Landing Cupboard – the bright landing is lit by a bespoke double-sided skylight while the large built-in double cupboard provides storage and is home to the new water tank, water softener and UV lamp.
Detached Garage – the single garage with gothic arched side windows, lighting and power affords copious storage and ample driveway parking, with the potential to create a full Workshop. The 2 studio rooms above are accessed by an external timber staircase and provide the possibility for a Home Office, recreation room, crafts or hobbies.
Accessed by a long driveway leading to the Detached Garage, the house is encircled by mature gardens with open front lawns interspersed with young trees and planted beds, and a timber Gazebo. Beyond the arched gate lies the rear Courtyard bounded by flowering climbers and extending onto a large deck, an ideal spot for outdoor dining. The side gardens house the practical considerations of oil tank, Log Store and outside tap.
