The Old School House, listed Grade II, is a pleasant conversion of a highly attractive period red brick school house. It has been cleverly and sympathetically renovated to provide three bedrooms and an open-plan living space, while retaining much of the building's charm and character. With lovely travetine flooring throughout the ground floor, with underfloor central heating and solid slate flooring in the bathroom, it is clear no expense has been spared. The kitchen is perfection with a Rangemaster cooker, wine fridge, integrated appliances and plenty of cupboards with granite worktops. The open-plan ground floor living accommodation benefits from the vaulted ceiling of the Old Schoolhouse, creating a pleasant and spacious setting. The original arched windows provide plenty of natural light and give the house an individual quality. Wood panelling and exposed brickwork have been retained, while other features have been neatly redesigned. The sitting area and dining room offer plenty of space in which to relax.

There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, plus a luxurious shower room, while upstairs there is a delightful mezzanine master suite, with an en suite bathroom and separate cloakroom.

The property is located in the village of Throop which is a green belt conservation area. The river Stour is close by and there are footpaths around the attractive countryside. Throop fishery is nearby and is renowned for the best barbel and chub fishing in the country. With Bournemouth just three miles away, beautiful beaches and rolling Dorset countryside on its doorstep, this property offers the best of both town and country. Castlepoint shopping centre is also within easy reach, and boasts plenty of high street retailers and two supermarkets. There are a number of excellent schools in the local area and Throop is well connected by road, with the A338 leading right into Bournemouth town centre. The mainline

station offers direct rail services to London Waterloo in just under two hours.

Access to the property is to the side of the Old Chapel, and features a walled rear garden which is mostly laid to lawn, with a gravelled terrace, great for BBQs and a good sun trap. There is on-street parking available along Muscliffe Lane to the front of the property.
