If you spent your schooldays longing to find out what it would be like to run the place, then look no further than this Charlton home.

The former Church of England school for the village, just off of Hatherden Road, is located centrally behind the village store and next to The Royal Oak, and provides the opportunity to have the perfect family home in a prime location.

The property is Victorian, being built in 1876 and teaching generations of pupils for 86 years until it was closed. After lying empty for around a decade, it then became a private home, which is how it has remained ever since.

It has been extended over this time, and now possesses four bedrooms across its two floors, with one currently used as a study. There is large dining area, kitchen and breakfast room, as well as a utility room, wet room and bathroom.

The property is described as being in very good decorative order, boasting features including a log burning stove, stained glass window and a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. The current owners have also carried out “a number of major improvements” during their almost 14 year tenure as custodians of the house.

Outside, there is a detached double garage, as well as a large, secluded garden area and patio, with space to grow your own fruit and vegetables.

The Old School is currently on the market for offers in excess of £500,000 through Brockenhurst Estate Agents, with interested parties able to look at its listing here: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/109788371#/
