Description

Located in a truly delightful semi rural setting in Wanborough this unique period home, with origins back to the mid 1800s, was the local school house. Subsequently the property was extended in the 1920s to form a residential property with later extensions in the 80s and again by our clients in the 90s to create the family home in evidence today.

The property has attractive part tiled and rendered elevations under a pitched roof and is far larger than initially apparent, offering spacious and well planned accommodation over two floors retaining much of the character of the original main building. The main entrance is to the side and is part of the 1920s extension and has a beautiful door opening into a vestibule with a cloakroom with quarry tiled floor beyond, which is an impressive main entrance hall with timber beams and a galleried landing creating a real 'wow' factor.

The impressive 27 ft living room has a fireplace and enjoys views over the gardens and fields beyond whilst the dining room is equally spacious creating a great social, family and entertaining hub as it leads directly into the fitted kitchen/breakfast room with space for day to day dining. The remainder of the ground floor comprises a boiler room and utility room.

The first floor offers five bedrooms, all enjoying delightful views and the guest suite benefits from an en-suite shower room in addition to the family bathroom. In addition to the principal accommodation the property also has a detached double garage with a 24ft studio room above it with independent access making it ideal for a variety of different uses. There is also a detached timber clad wood store and a pretty summer house occupying an elevated setting on the front terrace to make the most of the views. The property benefits from propane gas and has oil fired central heating and there is a septic tank.
