Set in the heart of Wereham, Norfolk sits this charming and truly remarkable property that is both old school and characterful. This unique find is a rare gem that combines vintage charm with comfortable living, making it the perfect blend of old and new.

Welcome to The Old School. Dating back to 1876, this property offers a nurturing appeal and remains a focal point of the village having been the local school for many years. As you step foot inside, the abundance of space, elegant interior, and functionality become very apparent.

There are three sizeable reception rooms, including the kitchen-diner, accompanied by a well-appointed shower room, cloakroom, under stair walk-in storage room, and a substantial utility room. As you explore, the array of original features and thoughtful additions merge seamlessly, offering a characterful canvas to make your own.

The first floor currently offers three double bedrooms, one with ensuite, and a family bathroom off-landing. Bedroom one and two boast floor to ceiling windows for plenty of natural daylight and fabulous views. Bedroom two had at one stage been two separate bedrooms, offering versatility for a fourth bedroom if desired.

Now for the great outdoors. The garden is beautifully enclosed with an original wall on one side and mature hedge on the other. At the end of the lawned garden there is a characterful store as part of the original build, with an adjacent workshop / garage / studio / office leading out onto an enclosed patio to the other side. This framework lends itself to many uses including an annexe.

Wereham is a friendly village positioned only a 12-minute drive east of the reputable market town of Downham Market where most daily amenities and eateries are catered for. In addition, Waitrose in Swaffham is only a 20-minute drive. Village life here is tranquil with access to acres of rural walks within moments of the doorstep.

Currently managed as a successful holiday let, this property is offered with no onward chain. To book a viewing simply call us 24/7.
