An internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this charming, two double bedroom cottage which was the former headmaster’s house adjoining the old village school situated in the centre of the popular, conservation village of Kirklington.

Teacher’s Cottage was originally built in the Victorian era and was converted in the late 1970’s at which time it was sympathetically extended to the rear to maximise the ground floor living space. The current accommodation comprises: Side Entrance Hall, Lounge, Dining Room/Sitting Room, fitted Kitchen, two double Bedrooms and large Bathroom 9’3” x 7’3”. NB: When the single storey extension was built to the rear foundations were made strong enough to take a second storey (subject to the necessary planning consent).

Modern day improvements include the installation to the rear elevation of uPVC sealed unit double glazed windows, updated oil central heating system in 2017 with external boiler, double French windows from the Sitting Room to the garden and re-fitted Kitchen in 2018. Period features include pine panelled internal doors, original wooden sash windows to the front, pine floorboards, Victorian style fireplace with cast iron, arched insert in the Lounge and some exposed roof trusses on the first floor.
Further advantages include pretty enclosed, south westerly facing rear garden, the owners park on the front immediately in front of the cottage and road side parking is also available.
