Warm surfaces reflect the passing of time and the tread of many feet in this traditional home full of memories, lofty ceilings and period trappings. ‘The School House’ boasts original fireplaces, wooden floors, shuttered sash windows and a country kitchen that combines old fashioned charm with modern appliances. This valued Victorian also benefits from a corner site opposite a church in a quiet side road where ‘everything’ is around the corner – trendy coffee shops, restaurants, wine merchant, pharmacy, supermarkets, “olde worlde” bric a brac shop and a brand new Woolworths food store.
