- Development Brief available
- Suitable for conversion subject to Planning Consent
- Versatile accommodation
A former school on a rectangular site set within the picturesque village of Netherton close to the National Park and the foothills of the Cheviots. Suitable for alternative use subject to Planning Permission.
The property was originally built in locally quarried stone under a pitched slate roof and has in more recent times been extended, also in stone under pitched slate roofs, with PVC double glazed windows. The school building is well laid out and appears in good condition and benefits from oil fired central heating. The building is not Listed. Main door leading into the school reception and adjacent school offices which lead into the main school room with built in fittings. Off this is an assembly room/gymnasium which leads to a third open plan schoolroom. In addition there are 4 WCs off the first and third school hall and a WC for the disabled. There is a single storey annex within which is the school kitchen with limited commercial stainless steel fittings and adjacent to this is a WC facility for the kitchen staff. Off the rear school hall is a staff kitchen with stainless steel sink. Externally to the rear are a range of stone outbuildings believed to be original school WC facilities before the extension was completed. There is a stone wall to the perimeter of the school and some flagged patio areas with an area of hardstand to the front for car parking. There is currently a proposal in place to lease a strip of land to the Parish Council to the north east of the site for access to the school play facilities which have been retained for community use and leased to the Parish Council. The agreement will include a requirement for the Parish Council to erect a new stone boundary wall.
