Kingscroft Mews, Bedhampton, Havant

All that rushing about, getting the kids off to school, and clearing up after them can be pretty exhausting.But Drayton estate agent Colin Shairp is inviting people on to a rather special school run, one that’s likely to bring a very welcome end of term result for one lucky family.For when school breaks for summer, this family could be planning on spending not only the six week break at school but all the term time and holidays that follow as well.

The school in question, on the corner of Bedhampton Road and Kingscroft Lane, is also a superb example of building recycling – this clever conversion project has brought about four homes at the Victorian Old Bedhampton School, one of them now waiting for you!‘While this is perfect for families wanting a three bedroom home full of architectural interest but it would also be a great solution for those who are downsizing but don’t want to go to small.‘As conversion projects go, it’s a good lesson in how to get things right for a wide selection of potential purchasers,’ says Colin, of Town and Country Southern.‘There are many retained features including high ceilings, cathedral style windows, some exposed beams, and lantern skylights while modern facilities, including wood framed double glazing and gas fired central heating as well as a well-equipped and superbly spacious kitchen/dining room and excellent bathrooms complete the picture.‘A square opening in the sitting room leads to the dining room while the third bedroom is also on the ground floor, adjacent to the bathroom.

‘The first floor is divided into two wings, each with its own staircase.‘Accessible from the sitting room is a landing with balustrade leading to the master bedroom, which has its own en-suite shower room.‘The second bedroom is accessed via stairs from the hall, providing easy access to the main bathroom.‘The property has its own garden as well as gated parking for two cars and is also close to good local facilities.‘Great news, too, is that there’s no onward chain so the purchase process should be straightforward.’
