Beautiful Grade II Listed cottage, with annex, close to excellent schools.
Conveniently situated close to a number of first-class schools and many miles of delightful open countryside, The Old School House is a charming, attached period cottage set in lovely gardens. Listed Grade II, the house retains all the character features associated with the period but has been gently restored by the current owners to provide plenty of modern-day comforts. They have also added a superb, self-contained one bedroom annex in the garden and a detached home office.
Dating we believe to the latter half of the 16th Century, the property was once three workers cottages which were reputed to have been left to the church on the proviso that one was used a school, hence the name. Local legend says that at one point the house was one of the residences of the Bishop of Winchester, and it was picturesque enough to be the subject of a postcard and a painting by the artist Helen Allingham in the 1890’s.
