History

If the walls could talk the story they would tell is that the people of the area voluntarily built a two-class room school for the local children and in those days the boys and girls were kept separated hence the two side entrances one for the boy's side of the school and one for the girls. It was only used as a school for about 30 years from circa 1932 before a larger school was built in the area. When the present owners completed their renovations around twelve years ago they invited the local people some of which are previous students of the school to view the house and were received with great excitement and well wishes.

Exterior

Access is gained via a double gated entrance with hardcore driveway, beautifully maintained gardens with trees and shrubberies. The original school outbuilding is to the rear of the property.
