Old School House is a handsome period house with outbuildings, mature gardens and a wild flower meadow on the edge of Alderbury.

The property dates from the 15th century and until 1992, it housed the village school.

Now a well-presented family house with generously proportioned rooms and a flexible layout, Old School House is in a peaceful and private location.

With a large, homely kitchen/breakfast room centrally within the property, a range of reception rooms are of varying sizes. The layout is v versatile and the house naturally divides into two halves, each with its own staircase.

The old school room has a vaulted ceiling, and a staircase hall with galleried landing.

The gardens were designed and created during the current owners’ tenure and are a key feature of the house. The south-facing terrace overlooks the formal garden with box hedging and topiary, and a large productive kitchen garden. Beyond the parking area at the rear of the house are steps up to the wild flower meadow and old school playground. There is also a double garage and two former school lavatory blocks.

Fred Cook, of Savills Salisbury, said: “This is one of the best converted school houses I have seen. The property has a rare blend of period character and practical configuration for flexible family living.”

Old School House is being marketed by Savills with a guide price of £1,500,000.
