Welcome to the Old School Rooms, a property that is full of charm and character and one that has a wonderful feeling of tranquillity upon entering the home. Originally built in 1846, the property was once home to the village school where the vicar would take daily classes, yet fast forward to today and the current owner offers a three-bedroom property that sits within mature gardens approaching 1/3 acre.
The village of Down Hatherley is betwixt of the Regency Spa town of Cheltenham and the City of Gloucester so any would be purchaser will not be found wanting of amenities with Cheltenham enjoying the Promenade and the district of Montpellier whereas Gloucester enjoys the world famous Gloucester Docks and adjoining Gloucester Quays.
Returning to the property, the Old School Rooms benefits from two well-appointed receptions rooms, the living room and dining room. Both rooms are a wonderful size, are well lit due to the level of windows found within the rooms and both enjoy Herringbone parquet flooring. Furthermore both rooms enjoy open fireplaces with the living room having an enclosed log burning fire whilst the dining room is the more traditional open fireplace.
Moving through the ground floor, there is a modern and contemporary hall, a separate study and a modern three piece family bathroom, which is tiled throughout.
Completing the ground floor is the recently fitted kitchen/breakfast room which enjoys a wealth of modern units, integral appliances, a freestanding range cooker and tiled floor. A door to the head of the room leads to the utility area which in turn gives access to the rear garden
Moving upstairs, the three bedrooms are all a good size with the property enjoying two large double bedrooms and a final single bedroom with the master bedroom enjoying two, fitted wardrobes. Whist the double bedroom at the front enjoys views over open countryside, the master bedroom enjoys views over the rear garden whilst the middle room enjoys the view of the neighbouring village church.
Completing the upstairs and the properties accommodation is the cloakroom.
Outside, there are gardens to both front and rear with the garden at the rear being mature, full of plants, trees and shrubs and being exceptionally private. A gravelled driveway allows parking for several vehicles whilst there are a number of outbuildings which include an oversized double garage, a brick-built outbuilding, both with light and power and a further timber building.
In summary, the Old School Rooms is a property that is warm, welcoming, full of character and charm and whilst we can do our very best to describe this, it is only evident by a physical viewing, which is highly recommended.
