This red sandstone former schoolhouse certainly needs a lot of work but the rewards could be sensational.

Honiball occupies an elevated location in the centre of the popular village of Combe Florey near Taunton in Somerset.

It is for sale with a guide price of £200,000 and is marketed by Stags, Taunton at OnTheMarket.

The property is situated on a fork in the road and dates back to the 19th Century.

Like many former school buildings, it has a projecting gable schoolroom with gothic mullion windows.

The property was converted to residential use in 1961 but retains much of its original character. It is now offered for sale with the potential to be renovated to a high-quality dwelling.

The accommodation comprises an entrance hallway leading to the dining room and further into the dual aspect sitting room, which has an open fireplace.

The bathroom has a bath, low level WC and hand basin. There is a small kitchen and two bedrooms, the first one of which benefits from a large mullion window overlooking the village.
