Hot Property

This delightful character building with a fascinating history, located in the sought after Staffordshire village of Tutbury will capture the hearts of all viewers. As the name suggests, the property was built as a Sunday School for Girls in 1884 by the Congregational Church minister's wife. Although the building does lie within Tutbury Conservation area, it is NOT LISTED in any way.

Since being bought from the Congregation Church in 2006, the current owner has utilised his skills and vision as an achitect to convert the Old Sunday School into a beautiful four bedroom home. Tastefully done, this home retains the character of the building, such as the main hall stage becoming a feature dining area; whilst having modern elements, such as the wonderful fitted kitchen and a sensational double ensuite.

Viewers will note that this home comes without off street parking, however the current owners had little problem parking their two cars with (mostly) unrestricted parking on Monk Street and some unofficial allowances by local establishments. There is a good local school with quarter of a mile in the form of Richard Wakefield Primary with a school bus service to De Ferrers Academy, Stretton.

Vendor's Comments
The original building was the idea of the Congregational Church ministers' wife, who recognised a need for the children who came from the surrounding areas to work in the local mills. Originally the Sunday School was for girls only, as they were getting "into trouble" on their only day off ( Sunday). So the church hall, with 7 school rooms on the first floor was built. The current building dates to 1884, and was funded by several sponsers, whose initials are set into bricks on the Monk St elevation. The main building has extra thick wall construction with original (and some newly replaced) stone window cills.

The building is NOT "listed" in any way, but is within the Tutbury Conservation area.

Beside the original front door was a hand water pump, used to fill watering cans for those tending their loved-­?ones graves in the churchyard (there are no further burials allowed). Below the house is a large rainwater collection sump. The existing replica is operated by an elec' pump (phew!). Surplus rainwater overflows into street drains, ….…clever Victorians!!

The garden is laid to shrubs, but could be all (or part) lawned, if preferred. Note the 3 old headstones resting against building. These are not over burial plots, and the garden plot has never had burials in it. These headstones can be removed if preferred. The decking (and fencing) was installed in 2013, and the deck has been "oil" treated each year. Access through rear gate (at decking) leads to bin store area (on left) and a further single gate access to rear access/yard (& gas meter). Right of way is included for the churchyard path to rear the gate to Church Street, where there is additional unrestricted parking. (bolt code 2512). Note; the churchyard is a favourite spot for a male peacock (Peter) who will visit occasionally, but only if you put out sunflower seeds or mealworms for him.
