The School House is a delightful Grade II listed home, built as the village school in 1856. It has been renovated to the highest standard, and combines charm and character with the ultimate comforts and sophistication required for modern day living.

All the rooms benefit from natural light and feel spacious and well maintained. Seller Interview – Richard, the present owner, was immediately delighted with the house and its location in pleasant and community minded, Alkmonton hamlet. Peacefully set in the rolling Derbyshire Dales it is a tranquil retreat from the busy modern world. However it is only five miles from the historic market town of Ashbourne where you will find comprehensive shopping, and a good choice of restaurants and leisure facilities. It is also famed for the Shrovetide football match, where the entire town divides into two teams. For a larger town experience, vibrant Derby is approximately half an hour away: whilst the Tissington Trail and Chatsworth House are only two of the many attractions in the area. You can enjoy the best of town and country from Alkmonton. The School House is situated in the centre of the village next to the church, and is a gentle and attractive reminder of the past. The facade has a huge appeal with its old clock and bell tower, and the soft red brick suggests a warm and inviting atmosphere. Richard says it has been a joy to live in the house. He has loved the original features, especially the main living room, once the large school room. The wow factor is the ceiling which rises up to the exposed beams and truss, and where you can climb to a mezzanine, that houses the old clock. It is both an exciting and ultra comfortable room where you can relax before the log burner and savour your surroundings. A more intimate room is the snug, once the schoolmasters office, and with its Victorian fireplace is perfect for settling down for an evening of TV. The orangery provides another area for relaxation, where French doors to the garden and the cupola ceiling flood the room with natural light. Richard has enjoyed the easy circular flow of rooms, as they have made the house perfect for entertaining. The dining room is ideal for celebratory meals, but guests generally gather in the modern and well equipped kitchen for informal kitchen suppers, or sit outside and enjoy the patio as an alfresco dining room. He describes the pleasure of opening all the doors to the garden to create a great summer, inside outside feel. The large garden is a continuation of the pleasure to be found in the property. It is a superb and joyful mix of lawns, flower beds and old apple trees, and has also been perfect for keeping chickens. It is contentment to sit in the agreeable atmosphere of the sun washed patio, where you might be tempted to cast your mind back to when it was full of playing children. Richard will miss the generous and adaptable space of the house and the enchanting combination of its history with modern amenities. He takes away many very happy memories. Outside – Externally, the home enjoys an enviable plot with garden to all four sides. On entering the front gate the gardens are well tendered with a variety of mature mixed plants and shrubs. To the side, we find a secret garden with manicured hedges overlooking the church which resides to the side of the School House. To the other side of the property you find a delightful sun terrace accessed from the orangery. The main garden area is located to the rear of the property. This consists of a sizeable lawn with well stocked beds and secure remotely operated gates providing access to the ample driveway and double detached garage. Location – Alkmonton is a highly desirable Derbyshire village with The School House and Church being endowed T.W Evans. The location offers great commuting with ease of access onto the M1 via junction 24 some 15 minutes away, A38 and A50. This quaint village is surrounded by countryside and is close to the Market town of Ashbourne which has a full range of amenities including a local church and community centre and with schooling, social and sports clubs and various public houses and restaurants.
