It’s all high ceilings and white wooden floors inside this Victorian school turned apartment in the UK’s Colchester – which overlooks the ruins of St Botolph’s Priory.
The three-bedroom converted school retains the pitched ceilings and wooden trusses of its former life, with the loft’s layout comprising an open-plan kitchen, living and dining room.
It’s listed with The Modern House for £400,000 and the monochrome interiors are a blank canvas for a new owner to leave their mark.
Stand-out elements inside the UK property include the original arched windows which bring light into the apartment, while door open onto a terrace with views of the historic priory ruins below – the real star of the show.
