A 150-year-old former school that's been converted into a luxurious modern family home has gone up for sale. The building in the village of Gwaenysgor, Flintshire was built in 1874.

While some original features have been retained, like the old school bell that stands above the front entrance, the building has been the subject of a "no expense spared" renovation and is now one of the most luxurious contemporary homes in the area. The three bedroom property now boasts a sleek open plan layout and is finished to a very high standard.

Stone steps lead down through the front garden to the entrance, with a larger garden to the back which offers stunning views of the rolling fields. The old school house on Ffordd Teilia is on the market for £640,000.
