"A central atrium with double-height vaulted ceilings provides a voluminous heart to this cherished family home"

Brilliantly situated and overlooking the Village Green is this expansive four-bedroom house with a small private courtyard garden. Previously the village school, the property has been wonderfully restored and refurbished. It has internal accommodation of circa 2,000 sq ft based around a central atrium with double-height vaulted ceilings.

Forming part of the Old School House, the building was constructed in 1878, the school went through extension in the early 1900's and was converted for residential use in 2013. The house has been sympathetically renovated using thoughtfully chosen materials, creating quality and characterful accommodation.

This house has a pleasant sense of volume throughout, with wonderfully high ceilings and open views over the village green. Accommodation is arranged generously across two storeys; the accommodation is connected via a central atrium which is flooded with natural light from a series of skylights above.

The house is set to the rear of The Green, the School house is found behind a row of mature trees. There is residents parking on-street, and two designated parking spaces for no.2 in a small private parking area just past the school. The house has a lovely front garden located behind a walled boundary with wrought iron railings and hand-gate, and entry is on the ground floor leading into an small entrance porch.

There is a large living room to the left of the entrance hall, which is flooded with light through beautiful south facing windows. A modern fireplace provides a warm and welcoming focal point to the room. The hallway opens up into a large central atrium with vaulted ceilings which has plentiful inbuilt storage, and a ground floor WC. Beyond this is the large kitchen and dining room. An elegant row of cabinets sits under terrazzo styled laminate worktops. A rear lobby provides access to the rear courtyard garden.

There are four bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. The largest, positioned at the front of the house has a lovely picture window, a dressing room and ensuite shower room with his & her basins. The middle bedroom is more modest in size, it is lit from above from a large sky light. The remaining two bedrooms are located at the rear of the property, adjacent to them and accessed from the landing is the fully tiled family bathroom featuring a corner tub, and vanity set wash basin.

Ormesby St. Margaret is a lovely village centred around two large village greens and a medieval church. The village is well serviced with schools, a pharmacy, several shops, garden centre with café, a traditional pub, and Indian restaurant.

Within a short drive you will find Ormesby Broad and Ormesby Little Broad, both part of the Trinity Broads. The newly refurbished Boathouse is an enchanting waterfront restaurant in Ormesby St. Michael, with outside seating and children's play area and beautiful views over Ormesby Little Broad.
