Now a stunning contemporary residence, the plot began life as a Catholic School circa 1895 before being converted and altered in 1992 to the home you see today.

Welcoming and impressive, pull onto the cobbled driveway to discover plenty of space for four cars before following the cobbles down to the gated archway where lights guide you into the courtyard.

From the main door, enter into a light and bright porch, wrapped on two sides with large windows that let the light flood onto the crisp white tiles of the floor.

The door to the left leads into a spacious hallway, an open staircase ascends to the first floor, and doors lead into the living areas of the home. A convenient downstairs bedroom makes for a fantastic guest room with access into a contemporary en-suite comprising walk-in shower, vanity with wash hand basin and WC.

Adjacent discover a most comfortable lounge, a calm and cosy space to escape the hustle and bustle where dual aspect bay windows capture lovely views over the gardens. Sink into the sofas around the gas fire for family movie nights.

Doff and don shoes and coats in the vestibule with door taking you out to the back garden as well as having a separate downstairs WC where guests can refresh and a handy cupboard for more hanging and storage.
The true heart of the home lies behind the next door where you will find an open-plan living space; sitting room, kitchen and dining room in one, spacious yet homely and inviting. Family and guests can come together lounging on the sofas around the feature fireplace, chatting to the cook busy preparing a sumptuous feast in the kitchen just beyond the integral island.

The contemporary cream country style cabinets hold an abundance of storage whilst the butcher block work surfaces ensure plenty of space for baking, cooking and chopping. Washing up will be a blissful task with far off views of the hills.
A central dining table providing ample seating for eight, is encased in windows, creating a tranquil entertaining area surrounded by the extensive garden. Note the patio door taking you out onto the paved terrace for effortless to and froing from indoors to out.
Just off the kitchen is a versatile collection of rooms that could become a granny annexe if required. Currently used as a large utility room, its impressive size makes it ideal for a kitchen and could house a small dining table. Access to the back garden allows for separate entry and also ensures ease of hanging out the washing. A door takes you into what is currently an office but could become a bedroom and behind the second door discover a cosy sitting room.
Following the natural loop of the home find yourself back at the main door, continue into the hallway and ascend the bright staircase to the sleeping quarters of the home. Admire the picturesque stained glass windows as you make your way upstairs.
Walk to the left, up a step and into the indulgent master suite. A space of two halves; to the right a calm space to rest your head with majestic views overlooking the garden, fitted furniture and a walk-in dressing space drenched in natural light from the skylights. To the left is an enormous en-suite bathroom comprising separate bathtub, walk-in shower, vanity unit, heated towel rail and WC. Sink into the tub and let your worries wash away in the creams and neutral hues of the light bathroom.
Return to the landing to discover two good sized double bedrooms, one slightly smaller than the other but both promising a peaceful night's slumber and providing ample space for a double bed and freestanding furniture.
A large walk-in shower room, decorated in crisp white and black is a real show stopper, shared by the remaining three bedrooms, conveniently stands in the middle of the landing.
To the end of the landing discover the final bedroom. Bright and airy, with vaulted ceilings and rich exposed beams, make your way into the room, beside a row of fitted wardrobes, and be wowed by the incredible arched window that takes centre stage, giving views over the playing fields and beyond to the countryside and Warton Crag. Imagine waking up here every morning to that view.
This final room would be a teenager's paradise, as a flight of stairs ascend into the eaves, to a space ideal for a desk and gaming zone. Discover a door that hides a handy attic space, great for storage or ready for converting into more living space.
Garden and Grounds
The Old School House promises a serene rural space to come home to, that is easily maintained as well as pretty and functional. Note the large detached garage that has plenty of room to house two cars as well as gardening and sporting equipment. To the rear of the garage is a separate workshop and a door that goes onto the courtyard with easy access into the house.
The driveway offers plenty of parking on the cobbles for owners and guests with easy access to the garden through the wrought iron gate, found in the wall to the left.
Step through to find peace and tranquillity in this private and spacious garden. Securely contained within a walled boundary to one side, and high hedges and evergreens to the others, ensuring the space is not overlooked in the slightest. This splendid space is a haven for the birds and wildlife that make the pond and trees home, as well as being the perfect entertaining spot.
A large paved terrace and patio lies to the rear of the home, adorned with potted plants and window boxes, and the perfect extension to the living area as well as majestic views to the rest of the garden. Let the children run wild, build dens, play tig or rounders on the extensive lawn whilst the grown-ups mingle, cooking up a storm on the BBQ.
Spend late nights stargazing and toasting marshmallows around the fire pit.
The large Hartley Botanic Greenhouse and cold frames, with power and light, provide an excellent space for potting.
Borders are planted with evergreens, mature shrubs, perennials creating a real countryside feel adding depth to the open spaces.
The Old School House is private and tranquil yet a truly convenient home for modern family life. This one is not to be missed!
