Old Dunbury was converted approximately three years ago from a former school room which dated back to the 19th Century and now offers light and spacious accommodation. The property has rendered elevations under a slate roof and the quality of the conversion is evident from when you open the front door, including central heating and aluminium windows and doors.

On the ground floor a front door opens into a spacious hallway with oak staircase to the first floor, cloakroom fitted with a modern WC and wash hand basin and a study with built-in desk and ample shelving. From the hall a door opens into the main reception room which is an open plan sitting/dining/kitchen with two sets of French doors opening to the rear garden, central fireplace housing a wood burning stove and useful built in storage/shelving. The kitchen has been refitted in the last few years with contemporary grey high gloss units with work surfaces over, stainless steel sink and drainer unit and space for further appliances. There is a separate utility room with further units, door to the driveway and space for a washing machine and dishwasher. The property has oak flooring with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.

On the first floor the accommodation has been adapted by the current owners and now includes a spacious landing with large airing cupboard, a really good size master bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and separate en-suite shower room which has been fitted within the last few years with a double shower cubicle, wash hand basin and WC. There are two further double bedrooms, along with a modern family bathroom including bath with shower attachment, WC and wash hand basin.


Adjacent to the property a wrought iron gate opens onto the driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles. To the rear is a good size garden which is fully enclosed with a paved terrace and the remainder of the garden laid to lawn. There is a really useful outbuilding which has been converted with power, light and heating and could easily be used as a gym, hobby room or home office.
