History and renovation work

The property used to be a retirement home and when the current owners purchased it, there was a traditional building to the front and a 1970s extension to the rear.
After considering different options, the owners decided to split the plot into two, creating two separate detached houses – one at 4 School Road and the other at 20 Bank Road.

While the properties presented excellent potential, the current owners admitted that a lot of upgrading and renovation work was required in order to bring them up to the high standards they are now.

The traditional property at 4 School Road was completely reconfigured – the lift was removed, and a lovely oak staircase put in and it was transformed into an immaculate family home with a great open-plan kitchen, dining and family area.


There is great emphasis on free flowing light and space in the property, and it has been specifically designed to allow this. The home features chic décor and high-quality modern finishes throughout, along with traditional features such as original shutters and oak flooring.

Offering an excellent spot to socialise as a family, the open-plan kitchen/dining area is a particular highlight of the property. The kitchen is fitted with an excellent selection of pale green fitted units, stone worktops and a large island. The room also boasts direct access to the private garden and the utility room, which features a Belfast sink and wooden worktops.

There is also a lovely sitting room on the first floor, with double aspect windows and a useful Edinburgh press. The ground floor accommodation also comprises an entrance vestibule, a spacious hallway and a WC.

4 School Road living room

On the first floor, there are four well-proportioned double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite. There is also a family bathroom on this level. The very attractive master bedroom is located on the top floor, alongside a stunning bathroom, complete with a freestanding bath and walk-in shower.


To the front of the property, the garden is laid with sandstone and there are planted borders and a traditional stone wall. The private rear garden is fully enclosed with a large lawn, mature planted borders, and a sun-trap patio area. The property also benefits from a driveway and garage.
