Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Post Office holds a prominent position within this well served village and all the amenities it has to offer, to include the main line train station which is a short walk away.

An impressive solid Oak entrance door takes you into the hall. Stairs rise to first floor and concealed stairs to the basement.

The sitting room was originally two rooms and has being opened up to create one very large room. The large Inglenook feature fireplace with cast iron stove insert and brick hearth, is a key feature of the room, together with exposed timbers, solid Oak floor and windows to the front and rear. The original Post Office counter is still in situ and is a free standing item which will remain in the property. The formal dining room is also a charming room with a large Inglenook fireplace and a brick floor and open studwork. A step down leads to the kitchen/breakfast area.

The kitchen is fitted with a range of base cupboards, some of the work surfaces and the breakfast bar are made of solid wood. There is a gas fired Aga for cooking only and space for a full size dishwasher. The separate utility area has space for a stacked washing machine and tumble dryer and a fridge freezer. There are double doors opening to the rear garden. Off the utility area is a recently re-fitted shower room with electric underfloor heating. To the front of the property, there is a cosy family room with large Inglenook fireplace and this room has been used in the past as a fourth bedroom.

On the first floor, there are three very large double bedrooms, each with their own individual character. Two of the bedrooms have the added benefit of built in storage cupboards and there is scope to create an en suite to the master bedroom. There is also a family bathroom with electric underfloor heating. From the landing, there is a wooden staircase leading to a good size loft room. Planning permission is still valid to turn this into a habitable room, where a window can be inserted, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

Outside, to the side of the property, there are double wooden gates and a drive with parking for up to four cars. The recently constructed detached garage has power and light. The separate workshop area has a timber staircase leading to the loft room, which is currently being used as a storeroom. This room could easily be turned in to a home office.

The large garden is delightful and is divided into three areas with a large Magnolia tree and well stocked borders. There is a good size decking area immediately to the rear. The first area of lawn has a brick retained wall and steps lead down to the main section of garden with mature trees which give colour and interest all year round. A further seating area and a shed can be found at the end of the garden and an attractive brick and flint wall to one side.
