The high ceilings suggest immediately that this was never a farm, and indeed it was a school built in the 19th century for an epoch when the rural population was much larger than now. The tiny village is on a ridge overlooking the meadows and woods below, and this house was transformed in the 1990s into a modern home with plenty of light and comfort. The schoolroom of yesteryear is now a huge living room, with now fewer than six high windows admitting light, with a wood-burning stove which heas the whole house. Beyond it, a cloakroom, and a bedroom with private bathroom. On the upper floor, three more bedrooms and a bathroom/WC. The old school yard is now a pleasant courtyard and beyond it is the South-facing garden, planted with trees and enjoying good privacy.
