Full description

Listed Grade II, The Old Post Cottage, as the name implies, was the village post office until 1954. The property has since been sympathetically restored, extended and
refurbished to provide a good level of flexible accommodation, including a self contained annexe.

The main part of the house is traditional ironstone under a thatch roof, the extensions are a well matched mixture of brick, elm boarding and pantile and blend seamlessly.

As can be seen from the floorplans the accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises, on the Ground Floor: Reception Hall with quarry tiled floor, (this was the main area of the former post office).

There is a rear door and door to the Dining Room, which also has a quarry tiled floor and a large Inglenook fireplace with Belle stove. There is a cupboard used as a wood store. The Drawing Room has exposed timbers, a triple aspect and central fireplace with a wooden surround. Off the Hall is the Kitchen Breakfast Room which is fitted with a range of floor and wall units. There is an Inglenook with a Rayburn and a glazed wall overlooks a central courtyard. Off the kitchen is a Utility Room with large storage cupboard and a Butlers sink. A Family Room leads off the kitchen and also looks into the central courtyard. It leads to the third Double Bedroom which has a mezzanine level and its own en suite Shower Room.

Stairs from the Dining Room lead to the First Floor with a large Landing/Study/Potential 4th Bedroom area. There is the Principal Double Bedroom, a further Double Bedroom and the Family Bathroom, the large landing area has historically had planning consent to create a fourth bedroom.

The architect designed annexe is situated immediately north of the house a short distance across a private paved area. Built of brick under a pantile roof it too is partly clad in elm board.

As can be seen from the floorplans it comprises a Kitchen with a range of fitted units, sink and drainer and space for an oven and fridge freezer. There is a good sized Sitting Room, a Bathroom and a Double Bedroom. The annexe has been specifically
designed to accommodate a disabled person.

There is a gravelled drive and parking area alongside the house and gardens to the front and rear. The property has an orchard and is bounded by mature trees which have been managed to allow views to Burley House.

In all gardens extend to approximately 0.5 acre (0.20 Ha).
