About this property

A grade II listed town centre property full of character and charm, presented to a high standard throughout with 4 bedrooms, beautiful garden room and established rear garden.

Blue Coat School House is a wonderfully presented Grade II listed period property situated in a convenient town centre location.

The building is believed to have been built in circa 1650 and from 1732 was used as a charity school with the boys originally provided with grey surge suits and the girls with green serge gowns, this was later changed to blue for both sexes, hence the name 'Bluecoat School House'.

The property is arranged over three floors providing flexible accommodation. Upon entering the property on the ground floor there is a spacious entrance hall/sitting room with feature open fireplace with lintel above. The sitting room opens into the kitchen which has the original front door and space for a family dining table and chairs. A door leads into a lobby with access to a wine store and stairs leading to a first-floor garden room. This stunning room is flooded with natural light, a truly tranquil place to sit and enjoy the peaceful garden and pond below. Stairs rise from the sitting room to give access to the master bedroom and bedroom 3; the master enjoys an en-suite bathroom which has a feature stone fireplace with lintel above. On the second floor are two additional double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Externally the property enjoys an established rear garden with fishpond, sitting terraces and various, trees, plants and shrubs in situ.
