The Old Abbey School is a substantial, detached early Victorian townhouse dating from approximately 1850. It began life as the stables for the Episcopalian Rectory next door, before being converted into a small private school and then into a private house. Extending to just over 2,230 square feet the house is constructed of dressed stone under a slate roof with an attractive bay window on the front elevation. Leading off the central hallway are three main reception rooms. Also on the ground floor there is a family lounge, dining kitchen/breakfast room, large utility area and family bathroom.
The remainder of the accommodation is also well proportioned with separate staircases giving access to three double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and a further family bathroom.
The Old Abbey School has several garden / patio aspects. At the entrance are double wrought iron gates set into classic stone pillars providing access to a large gravel driveway, giving plenty of off road parking. A paved path leads to the front door. Set into the garden wall is a deceptively spacious single garage extended with a recently constructed workshop, both of which have power, water and light. Stone walls and a garden fence surround the house with several sheltered terrace patio/lawn areas from which the garden can be enjoyed at different times of the day.
