Full description

As its name suggests, The Old Post Office is a former post office situated in a delightful rural location with open countryside views and large gardens.

Dating back to 1852 and constructed by the Wear Valley Railway Company, the property originally served the small hamlet of Waskerley and it's residents until it became privately owned in the 1950's. Waskerley now consists of The Old Post Office, the adjoining property and the nearby farm.

The current owners extended the property in 1999 in order to provide a spacious family home yet still retain the original charm and character of the original house. The accommodation briefly comprises, on the ground floor: Entrance porch leading to the dining room which has a multi fuel stove, lounge with traditional cast fireplace, sitting room which leads to the conservatory. There is also a farmhouse style kitchen with useful utility room and a bathroom fitted with a white suite. To the first floor there are 3 bedrooms, a w.c. and a large landing which is suitable as an occassional bedroom.
Externally the property is accessed by a gated driveway and there are large gardens of approximately one-and-a-half acres with two stables, two patio areas, mature trees and fantastic views.

The property is situated adjacent to the popular Waskerley Way between Consett & Stanhope. It is also a few minutes drive from the A68 which offers access to the north and south.

Agents notes: The property has solid fuel central heating and double glazing. Electricity is supplied by a "Lister Petter" diesel generator backed up by a smaller generator, there is a septic tank for drainage and water is supplied from a natural spring.
