The Old Post Office in Chitterne is an exceptional village home. Offering good accommodation, the house is extremely well proportioned with excellent living and entertaining space, balanced by four bedrooms.

The large reception space includes a pleasant Sitting Room, warmed by a wood burning stove, leading into a superb vaulted Dining Room. Originally the shop, there are exposed beams and first floor windows, also skylights, which flood the room with natural light and a stable door opens to the garden. A large Inglenook fireplace with impressive beam forms a great focal point with inset lighting, and wood burner in place (ready for connection).

To the side of the house the driveway provides private parking and leads to the detached double garage, with eaves storage and power and light connected. There is further private parking on a lay-by opposite with space for three cars.

Paved seating areas provide the perfect spot to relax or dine alfresco. There is a timber storage shed and woodstore and gate to the driveway.
