The Agent's Perspective
"This property was originally a schoolhouse and is believed to have been built c.1828 - even before Glencraig Church nearby. The school had two classrooms - one large room for the older children and a smaller one for the infants.The schoolmaster lived with his family in the adjoining cottage. In the 1960's, the school was relocated further down Seahill Road and became Glencraig Primary School. The building was then used as a church hall until it was renovated in 1986. The present owners love the comfort and space the house offers which they have enjoyed with their children and friends. The large, bright kitchen, the privacy of the garden (and its colour all year round) and walks to the beach at Rockport being particularly appealing features "
