The Old School, South Pool, Devon

Conversion of Victorian Schoolhouse with a new Two Storey Wing

The Old School is situated at the entrance to South Pool village in the heart of The South Hams AONB. The new dwelling has been built around the shell of the former Victorian village schoolhouse.

A bold two storey new wing has been created to improve living and dining accommodation. Designed in a traditional style to be sympathetic to the surrounding conservation area buildings, the whole property is now a comfortable and energy efficient home. New slate and zinc roofs perch atop the cream whitewashed walls.

The private walled garden has been connected to the house through new french doors, patios and landscaped terraces.

Loved by the local Parish Council and villagers for its restraint and use of high-quality materials The Old School is a fine example of modern contextual design in the South Hams.
