"Plenty of scope for the imagination"
Situated in the pretty and popular village of South Milton the former School House and School together with land to the side extending to nearly one fifth of an acre, offers an exciting project with the opportunity, subject to planning permission, to develop into several dwellings.
The School House is currently configured as three bedroom accommodation whilst the former School classroom, kitchen and playground are awaiting an architect’s pen. Planning permission was renewed on 22nd December 2003 for change of use of the School dwelling and as a start was made with the parking area, remains current. On the stream bordered level garden to the side, now in part providing parking, planning permission was renewed on 30th November 2004 for residential development but has since lapsed.
Both the School House and School are of traditional stone construction with later modern additions under slate roofs, exhibiting a number of interesting features. Whilst the School House has been used as a family home, the School room is essentially a blank canvas to inspire the designer’s imagination. Stone walls support open roof trusses and wooden floorboards, large wood burning stove and tall windows to the front provide a wealth of original features.
The School storeroom with vaulted ceiling, tall windows, wooden floorboards, fireplace, dado panelling and shelving provides another inspiring space to reimagine. Other remnants of school life remain in the form of the school playground and some local viewers may remember running about here or jumping over the stream between the house and the land at the side.
This excellent opportunity is on the market with a Guide Price of £750,000 and a viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the potential offered.
