Take a peek inside this 1800s schoolhouse that has been converted into a unique family home worth £675,000.

The Old School House, on School Hill in Seale was the centre of education for the village back in the 19th century, and in recent years has been transformed into a three bedroom house spanning more than 1,500 square feet.

The exterior of the building still looks much as it would have when it was first in use, with latticed windows and tall pointed roofing.

Inside, however, a Georgian era student might not recognise their former schoolroom, as it is now fully reformed into a modern home, albeit retaining plenty of period features.

On the ground floor, there is a large living room with an open fireplace, a kitchen with a vaulted ceiling, a study and an office.

Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and a recently refitted family bathroom.

Throughout the former schoolhouse are exposed beams and stonework, and other features of the property include a garage and a storage outbuilding, as well as private gardens.

The Old School House was taken to market by Bourne Estate Agents, and has been sold subject to contract for a price of £675,000.

Adrian Cannon of Bourne Estate Agents commented: “This is a very charming three bedroom converted school house in the heart of the village, originally dating back to the mid 1800s, that has been sympathetically updated to an exceptional standard, retaining a wealth of period features, set within the picturesque village of Seale.”
