Property Description

Full description

This two bedroom property dates back to the 1700's and is situated on The Street in the very heart of the village. It was originally the post office serving the village and a picture of it features in the book "Old Basing" by Anne Pitcher as such in 1887. We believe it was the post office up until 1932.
Since then the property was converted into two flats and it is in this format that we offer this two bedroom ground floor flat.

The property underwent major improvements 8 years ago which included rewiring and double glazing which are both still within a guarantee period. The property has cavity wall insulation and electric night storage heating.
Concealed in the wall between lounge and bedroom one is the original bread oven and fireplace, this could still be exposed.
