Top of the register is a brilliant opportunity to buy near the beautiful and historic Hastings Old Town. Well situated for easy access to both the seaside and London, this three-bedroom house in a former Victorian school is a great find. Very well presented, it has three lovely double bedrooms and a charm that emanates throughout, with original features and vaulted ceilings.
Full marks for this next property, which was once Glasgow’s Park School. Its distinctive style makes for a unique flat and with two good-sized bedrooms and a location right near the city centre, it is a perfect property for first time buyers or couples.
Correct and present is our third property, which once formed part of St Nicholas House, boarding accommodation for St Leonard’s School. Converted in 2012, the whole flat has been designed in a contemporary fashion incorporating many great features, including oak flooring and a fully fitted kitchen. Located in the centre of the beautiful city of St Andrews, the coast is just a short walk away.
Set in a picturesque yet convenient location, our next property definitely gets an A grade. This three-bedroom house has both attractive gardens and amazing views overlooking Carmarthenshire and beyond. The Old School, in Capel Isaac, is well presented and makes use of all the space to provide a comfortable family home.
Late to class but not to be missed is a one-bedroom flat to rent, in the sought after area of north London’s Islington. Many old schools in London have now been divided up and converted into flats and this one is both well presented and well connected. The flat benefits from easy access to the whole of London via various overground lines but is also situated just a short 12-minute journey to King’s Cross.
