Property Overview

Historical living

The Old Schoolhouse is a deceptively spacious and well presented detached single storey property with well appointed and versatile accommodation located within the semi-rural village of Crocketford, also known as the Nine Mile Bar.

The Schoolhouse dates back to 1912 and was converted to form a residential dwelling approximately 40 years ago. It has an internal floor area of 162m2.

The house occupies a good sized rectangular shaped plot, and consists of the original former playground areas which are now utilised for on site parking for several cars. In addition to this there is a detached double garage with power and light and metal sliding entrance doors, which offers a variety of uses. 

The garden grounds surround the property to the front, side and rear and are bounded principally by low stone walls except for timber fencing to the right hand side. It has been designed in a low maintenance style, providing a good degree of privacy and all year round colour. The views to the rear over the adjoining farmland are quite spectacular.  

On entering you are welcomed into the spacious Entrance Hallway, which gives access to all rooms. The first door on the left leads you into the Family Kitchen which incorporates a family dining table and a good range of base and eye-level units and triple aspects windows. The impressive Living Room is quite breath taking with the original wooden entrance door and its high ceilings, triple windows to side and a full height glazed door giving access to patio area and rear. This room has been designed in such a way that it incorporates a warm snug feeling for those cold winter nights and an area for reading. In addition, the private Study/Office Area is accessed via the Living Room.

The Dining Room is generous in size, which allows ample space for a large dining table and chairs. A built-in display area with storage cupboard below is an additional extra with double height windows allowing the natural light to flood in. 

All bedrooms within the Schoolhouse are of a double size and all incorporate double height windows and high ceilings, fitted carpets and window dressings. With the exception of Bedroom 1, Bedroom 2 and the Master Bedroom also benefit from hanging space and storage. The Family Bathroom consists of a three piece white suite, fully tiled and with electric shower over bath. A bonus is the very modern W.C. Apartment which is a benefit to modern day living.
