Ian and Natalie Cecil were first attracted to the location of the old nursery-in fact, it was in such a bad state of repair.
Ian, a 45-year-old consultant, said it was a former child nursery that was closed about six months before we saw it.
The main building is a Victorian billiard hall used as a classroom.

Ian said: "The brick fireplace is built with wooden boards, and unusual lantern windows are covered and installed with wired safety glass.
This is a beautiful feature.
They added six bedrooms, four bathrooms and a movie theater on the ground floor.
Tempered glass floors allow light to enter the basement from upstairs.
Most of the house is open.
Plan, focus on the spacious and charming kitchen and restaurant open to the garden through bifold doors.
It was embarrassing for the vehicles to enter and exit, so they added a link --

It turns out that the house is a hot spot for TV and photography.
