*** GUIDE PRICE £425,000 - £450,000 *** TOP MARKS FOR THIS FORMER SCHOOL HOUSE *** Watsons are delighted to present for sale this deceptively spacious detached property which was the school master's residence (formerly Greasley Beauvale Infant School). Built in 1875, it boasts all the features you would expect, including high ceilings retaining original cornice and period style fireplaces, but the current owner has tastefully refurbished to make a very functional home for the modern family. In brief, the accommodation comprises: entrance hall, lounge, dining room, kitchen, utility room, shower room and a garden room. Upstairs, the landing leads to the four DOUBLE bedrooms and family bathroom. Outside, the building alongside is no longer a school, whilst the other side overlooks superb open countryside so there is a high level of privacy to the rear. A driveway provides off street parking and there is excellent additional on-street parking provision to the front. As part of the restoration of this historic abode, sympathetic enhancements made by the current owner include: external rendering, refitted central heating, rewiring, replastering as well as refitted kitchen & bathroom. It should be noted that part the former school itself is Grade II listed which will preserve it's cosmetic integrity, however the property for sale is NOT listed. Viewing is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to truly appreciate this rare opportunity and are strictly by appointment only.
