FULL ADDRESS Old School House, Long Lane, Spurstow, Cheshire CW6 9RF

**See Ian's Drone Video Tour** If you're looking for an original and beautiful Cheshire property, beautiful landscaped gardens, land and outbuildings and plentiful quirky and original features then you need look no further than The Old School House in Spurstow near Tarporley. A converted former school awash with history and offering over 3,000 sq ft of accommodation including an open-plan drawing room and dining area with original parquet flooring which was formerly the School Hall. The octagonal school clock tower has been retained while there are Gothic highlights everywhere, including the windows, carved wooden fascia boards and blue brick patterns.

The property was built in 1872 by Nantwich-based architect Thomas Bower and has been totally painstakingly modernised and renovated since our sellers purchased it in 2018. Old School House offers 4 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, separately accessed from 2 different halves of the property. The Master Bedroom also benefits from a dressing area. The open plan Kitchen Diner has been thoroughly modernised and has a large central island - perfect for entertaining with splendid views of the garden. On the ground floor there is also a cosy Snug and Study.

Above the Hall area the current owners have created a bespoke cinema space with original cinema chairs that have been restored and attached to the walls and a screen which comes down within the beams of the beautiful ornate ceiling. The owners enjoy hosting regular film nights here with friends and family.

The property is surrounded by mature formal gardens with several different enclosures including a herb garden, along with mature trees which provide privacy from the country lane. To the rear of the property is a large original walled courtyard with Indian sandstone paving and various seating areas. To the front there is a large gated driveway area and the owners have created a second driveway area with separate access to the rear of the property providing further off road parking.

To the rear of the formal gardens (and available to purchase by separate negotiation) is the stunning woodland reserve with lake, bridge, island and 'Lullington Lodge' at the far end complete with accommodation and hot tub - perfect for entertaining on warm summer evenings and al fresco events and parties. One option that the current owners had explored is the possibility of changing the use of the land to run a boutique glamping business and instructed a specialist company to undertake a site survey and give their recommendations. Beyond here is a small paddock area. The gardens and grounds are complete with outside lighting throughout. 'Lullington Lodge' and the timber shed just off the main lawn which is currently used as a gym are available to purchase via separate negotiation.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Tenure - Freehold
Property is oil fired and has a large industrial septic tank with drain away to main sewer.
