AN EXCITING AND RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A FREEHOLD FORMER VILLAGE SCHOOL WITH TREMENDOUS POTENTIAL

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION
LOCATION
Set in the South Downs National Park, within the Ouse valley, the charming village of Rodmell has many historical connections with the �Bloomsbury Group�. The school is tucked away at the far end of a wide footpath adjacent to the Parish Church and with access to the glorious open countryside of the South Downs. The county Town of Lewes is about 4 miles to the north providing an excellent range of shops, restaurants and many other facilities, together with main line railway station (London Victoria about 1 hour 10 minutes). The A27 provides fast vehicular access to the city of Brighton and Hove, with Gatwick Airport being around 40 minutes by car. A location plan and street view can be viewed online through Google Maps by typing in the postcode: BN7 3HF.

Dating from 1856, as recorded on a plaque, the interesting original building has elevations of flint and brick with red brick dressings and quoins with a pitched and tile clad roof together with a more modern addition. The accommodation is all on one level, currently providing 3 Classrooms, Hall, Library, Office and Staffroom, Cloakrooms and Storage. Outside are small courtyard areas and a forecourt.
