Back To School. Ever thought of living in a former School that oozes traditional features and bags of charm? Then this is the house for you. Set on a beautiful site of approximately 3/4 acre on the edge of the village, this stunning and unique property is the original school in Carrowdore dating back to the early 1900's, and was later converted in to a residential dwelling whilst still retaining many of the features from its former self. Immediately upon entering the main living area you can fully appreciate what this home has to offer, as you are met with a breathtaking space with large vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams, large stone fireplace with stove and a large glazed bookcase which originates from Armagh Cathedral. The home further offers a large kitchen/breakfast room with utility room off, a good sized entrance hall with access to an integral double garage and also a cloakroom WC. Continuing up to the first floor you reach a superb gallery landing overlooking the main living area below. On the first floor there are three spacious bedrooms, with a vanity wash hand basin in the master bedroom, and a luxury four piece white family bathroom suite with panelled bath and large walk-in shower enclosure. Outside there are extensive gardens with mature trees and shrubs, vegetable garden, edged lawns and a large timber workshop or store. The site may lend itself to provide for a further dwelling, subject to approval. A truly exceptional opportunity to acquire a piece of history, so internal viewing is highly recommended.
