Apartment 2, Croftdown Court is an exceptionally well appointed apartment situated at ground floor level allowing for easy access from the parking area. The apartment is located in what was The Old School House from Croftdown School which was created in 1940, originally to house eighteen pupils evacuated from Woldingham, but as numbers swelled it became a successful school until 1991 when numbers started to decline and it was taken over by Malvern Girls College and became their junior department. In 2000 the school eventually closed and in 2001 planning permission was applied for to convert the site into the fabulous apartments available today. The Old School House is a beautiful building enjoying stone mullioned windows and strong period characteristics. The site is approached via a sweeping communal driveway that leads to a mix of residential homes including houses and apartments in different and separate blocks all of which enjoy the exceptionally well manicured communal gardens. The Old School House is located directly adjacent to the plentiful visitors parking area. A paved pedestrian path leads to the hardwood communal front door which opens to a vestibule with tiled floor. A further communal door controlled by a telephone entry system opens to a communal reception hall where stairs rise to all floors.
