About this property

The Old School is a unique and characterful, four-bedroom home, situated in an enviable raised position of the village with views of the church in the popular village of Ashwell.

Enter the property into a porch with windows to the front and rear and a door into a central hallway. The central hallway gives way to the ground floor accommodation comprising a galley kitchen, three reception rooms, an office, downstairs cloakroom, and a ground-floor bedroom.

The kitchen sits to the front of the property with four windows along one elevation allowing ample light. There are a good range of floor-standing units with space for a Range style cooker and a small breakfast table. To the end of the kitchen a door opens into a utility room with further storage, space and plumbing for a tall fridge freezer and a glazed door out to the side of the property.

The two main reception rooms sit to the middle of the property, the dining room accessed from the kitchen and has a feature fireplace with an open fire. The large and light living room has a wonderful, vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, wooden flooring, a stone-built fireplace with log burner inset and a glazed door opening out to a side courtyard area. To the rear of the dining room is a further reception room, historically used as an office but could be utilised in a variety of ways. There are two walls of exposed ironstone and a set of French doors opening out to the patio and garden. The ground floor is completed by a further study space and a ground-floor bedroom with built-in wardrobes.

To the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedrooms one and two sit to the rear of the property overlooking the garden. Bedroom three is smaller double room and sits to the front of the property.

All three bedrooms are served by the family bathroom comprising a panelled bath, separate large shower cubicle, wash hand basin, low flush lavatory and useful storage cupboard.

The Old School retains much of its character with most rooms having full height windows flooding the property with natural light. It would benefit from modernisation and upgrading throughout and is certainly a property that must be viewed to be appreciated.

The property is approached via a gravelled driveway with parking and access to the single garage. The garden wraps around all sides of the property with a hard landscaped courtyard area to the South and a lawn to North between the property and the churchyard.

Ashwell is a small village situated in the rolling countryside, whilst only being a short drive away from the historic market town of Oakham and its amenities, Ashwell itself has an active village hall, a garage, the Well Know Garden Centre with a range of shops, an annual village fete and well-attended 14th century church. The area is renowned for its excellent schooling offering Beacons of Exceptional Practice. The East Coast main line provides intercity rail services from Peterborough to London and the North East. The location is perfect for both commuters and those looking for more peaceful living.

Head out of Oakham on Ashwell Road taking the 2nd exit at both roundabouts towards Ashwell. Continue on this road into the village of Ashwell taking your first right onto Water Lane. Continue to the end of Water Lane, take a left onto Cottesmore Road and another left onto Church Close. The Old School can be found on your right-hand side.

The property is offered to the market with all mains services and gas-fired central heating.
