An exciting conversion comprising seven properties. The former nursery school hall and headmaster's house to three unique three bedroom houses and the addition of four new semi-detached, three bedroom houses in the school grounds.

Within this unique and private setting at the heart of the village, the Newsome is a stunning conversion of a former stone built headmasters house to a high specification three storey, three bedroom property, under a natural slate roof.

The property retains original features such as the impressive stone windows, including a bay window on the ground floor, along with interesting build lines and shapes to the second floor, not on offer in your standard new build.

The ground floor accesses through a covered entrance porch to the hall and through to an open plan living/dining/kitchen. Contemporary fittings for the bespoke, high-end kitchen combine to deliver efficient modern living with the authentic Victorian charm. The same hall leads to an extra flexible reception room which could be used as a dining room, home office or family room.

The first floor offers a master bedroom suite with ensuite shower room and ample space for storage, a further double bedroom and family bathroom.

The staircase rises to the second floor and to the left has a quirky and interesting third bedroom and fourth bedroom/study, providing solutions for multi-generational living.

Further features include, double glazing, quartz worktops, integrated appliances, gas central heating, heated chrome towel rails, fully tiled showers and splashbacks.

To the front is a compact garden patio area ideal for those whose lifestyle dictates that low maintenance is preferred.

There is safe, off-road, allocated car parking for two cars on site and it's just a short walk to the village's many amenities.

To reflect the local history of the site, each of the homes have been named after previous Head Teachers of the original school.
