Take a look at this gem in Clent!
The Old School House is located in Walton Pool Lane, adjacent to the historic Clent Church. Situated at a prime spot in the centre of Clent village, the property has recently undergone extensive refurbishment and has been finished to the highest of standards. This beautiful two-bedroom detached home also has a surprise third floor loft room and is nestled at the foot of the famed Walton Hill and Clent Hills, loved by locals and keen walkers.
The home is steeped with history, and is also a key historic building within the village. Built in 1868 by Durant family of Clent Hall, it was used as the home of the Headmaster and Headmistress of the adjacent former school. The property was owned by Clent Church up until 2015 when the current owners bought the property and lovingly refurbished it.
Upon entering the property, the painstaking attention to detail and the maintenance of its historic legacy is evident. The wonderful 18th century entrance door with a stained glass insert leads onto a stunning kitchen/ diner. It is clear that expense has not been spared as you walk across the French style ceramic tiled flooring into the room. With exposed brick walls and wooden beams, the kitchen is filled with character and is the perfect space for entertaining. In order to maintain the history of the property, whilst modernising to suit the owner’s needs, all windows have been adapted to receive double glazed units, but with the addition of stained-glass windows and in some rooms, the original internal pine shutters.
Each room has its own breath-taking character, the lounge featuring a gorgeous spiral staircase up to the first floor and an 18th century cast iron fireplace with granite hearth. The bedrooms are equally as unique, both with feature fireplace insets, and double-glazed windows with stained glass inserts. The master also benefits from an en-suite whilst the second bedroom can make use of the stunning family bathroom, fitted with a chic clawfoot bath.
The garden has also been transformed into the ideal entertaining and leisure space. Perfect for the Mediterranean summer nights, there is a pizza oven located in the garden which is certain to wow guests. Also, located in the garden there is a large summerhouse, fitted with a power supply and heaters, its is the perfect place to unwind in any weather. The space also has the potential to make the ideal workspace for those who work from home.
The Old School House truly is one of a kind, the care and painstaking restoration undertaken by the current owners makes this one of the most unique and breath-taking properties in the Midlands.
