FLOORPLAN AVAILABLE: This stunning three bed detached school renovation is of the highest quality. With lots of character and charm, it blends history with a contemporary, modern living

Whittington is a village which lies approximately 3 miles south east of Lichfield and is one of the most sought-after places to live. Two canals pass through the parish and each bridge is listed plus there are many other buildings which are listed within this historic village.

One of the most historic buildings in the village is The Old School. In 1741, Sarah Neal started a school for poor children. When Reverend Levett died in 1802 (leaving a legacy), a handsome gothic building for a girls’ and infants’ school was built in 1864. Children continued to be educated here until 1968 when a new school was built in Common Lane.

The Gothic style school and its site, has been sympathetically restored, enhanced and developed by the Landlord. The restoration has combined the character of the original school with a modern and contemporary style for both the renovation and the new builds. The fittings include stunning Shaker style kitchens with Silestone worktops with integrated Belling Range and hood which has an induction hob! Also included will be a Samsung French style fridge/freezer and Bosch integrated dishwasher and washer/dryer. Throughout the property there is superb quality Karndean flooring, Hi Tech Worcester Bosch gas heating systems with Bluetooth thermostats and HIVE controlled under floor heating. Villeroy and Boch bathrooms with Porcelanosa tiles plus fully integrated SKY throughout each property. In most rooms, there are power sockets with USB chargers plus each property will have its own personal electric car charger.

This stunning property has the benefit of two allocated parking spaces in the secure gated courtyard which also has plenty of visitor spaces too.

The namesake of the development has been lovingly restored and enhanced. Most windows are set in a stone surround and have been restored in keeping with the age of the property. Together with up-lit stone sconces, beams and a feature circular staircase, the property is a wonderful mix of old world character and the contemporary.

Entrance to the property is through the double security gates at the entrance to the development. To the rear of the property is two parking spaces with car charger and access into the garden.

The large original arched door leads you into the spacious exposed brick hallway with an old fire bell to one side. With a high ceiling and velux windows, this entrance hall leads to a ground floor double bedroom, a master bedroom with ensuite shower room plus a superb main bathroom which has a bath, separate double shower cubicle and feature to the basin area.

An opening leads to the main living accommodation which is absolutely stunning. An impressive cathedral height ceiling with beams, wood panelling, huge windows to each side – this room really does have the WOW factor. There is plenty of room for sofas and a dining table for at least 12 people plus the exquisite kitchen has integrated appliances as well as a huge breakfast bar – ideal for socialising. The Landlord also managed to restore one of the original chalk boards used in the Old School and it now sits as a feature to the wall.

Also adding to the charm of the living accommodation is the renovated circular staircase to the mezzanine double bedroom above (with beams and huge window) plus a preserved archway which was originally a doorway.

The rear garden has a lawn and stone patio and to enhance The Old School’s uniqueness, a hopscotch path leads to the rear door and lobby. The garden stretches around to the side and front of the property where the original foundation stone can be found – laid in 1864.

There is truly nothing as exquisite available on the longterm rental market and the exclusivity of living in such a historic building and development is ideal for a tenant looking for something very unique and impressive.

With the historic town of Lichfield just a few minutes away, Trent Valley train station within a short drive and the A38 on your doorstep, these properties are ideal for the professional looking for an idyllic but convenient location with top quality accommodation.

Whittington has a wide variety of community groups and activities, several shops, two village pubs (including The Dog across the road from the development and The Bell) and a popular Local Food & Craft Market. As well as the traditional Church Fete, the Parish Council organize, an annual Countryside Fair with proceeds supporting village community groups and projects. The Staffordshire Regiment Museum is also close by at the historic Whittington Barracks along with the Whittington Heath golf course described as "the best Harry Colt designed course in Staffordshire". The properties are also within the King Edward V1 school catchment for senior school and 6th form.

(Please note that The Old School is an historic property and therefore the floorplan cannot be relied upon for its accuracy – it is a visual aid only)
