HEAD BACK to school with this stunning two-bed house located in a former Victorian school, which could be yours for £1.175m.
Incredible images show the exterior of the former Victorian school, the modern kitchen inside and the spacious living area with a high-vault ceiling.
Other striking shots show the cosy bedroom with a four-poster bed, sleek bathroom and study area overlooking the living room.
The two-bed school conversion is located in The Lycee, London and is currently listed by Unique Property Company for £1.175m.
“The Lycee, a truly iconic building in the heart of London’s, Kennington and home to a highly desirable collection of residences converted from a Victorian school,” states the listing.
“This particular space of nearly 1400 Sq Ft is a unique addition to the entire scheme, one that sits at the centre of the former art block. Essentially, it’s a freehold town house, but one that enjoys the feel of an open plan apartment, on account of its dramatic open plan, first floor living space.
“Accessed via a spiral staircase, with voluminous vaulted ceilings which in turn house a mezzanine office space/living space. On the lower level are two generous bedrooms and two bathrooms.
“The sympathetic conversion carried out just over twenty years ago, when the current owner took occupancy has retained as much of the character as possible, from that all important ceiling height, exposed brick, timber beams and floors. This period charm however, is also subtly enhanced by some thoroughly modern touches, from the clever LED Lutron lighting system to incredibly real gas/wood fire and electric blinds.
“And, it’s also one of the lucky properties within the complex to boast its own private rear courtyard, plus there’s also the advantage of two, secure off street parking spaces.
“The local area has a distinct urban village feel. Around every corner you’ll not be left short of coffee shops, bars and restaurants to visit, plus you’re on the door step of both Kennington and Oval tube stations, (both Northern Line) and the green spaces of Kennington Park. Vauxhall and Lambeth are both within walking distance and no property in this area could go without a nod to ‘The Oval’, Londons home of Cricket, which is just behind.”
