Tenure: Freehold

Located in the pretty Hamlet of Fossebridge, Old Post Office commands a prominent position overlooking beautiful gardens and grounds adjoining the River Coln, in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The property is believed to date back to the 17th Century and offers flexible living space with a wealth of character including flagstone floors, beamed ceilings and feature fireplaces. The accommodation is situated over three floors with a self-contained annexe adjoining the property.

The front door opens into an impressive drawing room, with an elegant staircase leading up to the first floor. This room is very much the heart of the house with a Clearview multi-fuel log burner in inglenook fireplace to one end and window seating overlooking the garden. The dining room has space for a large dining table and an open doorway plus serving area in to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of floor and wall units.

At the far end of the house, off the drawing room, is an additional sitting room with a pretty black multi-fuel fire with marble surround, which could have a number of alternative uses. Beyond the dining room is a large porch/hallway leading to both the study, which has its own separate access on to the front of the property, to a shower room and in to a cosy snug complete with a fire surround currently housing a freestanding gas burner. There are three bedrooms with bedroom one having a Victorian fireplace with painted wooden surround and a bathroom on the first floor with two further connecting attic rooms on the second floor.

Old Post Office is located in the pretty Hamlet of Fossebridge, between the Gloucestershire towns of Cirencester and Northleach. The Hamlet is located along the Fosse Way (A429), the old Roman Road, in a steep wooded valley surrounded by the Cotswold countryside.

Northleach (about 3 miles) has a good range of shops and services, with a wider choice at Cirencester (about 6 miles)

The main regional centres are Oxford, Swindon, Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham, all of which are within daily commuting distance.

Frequent direct rail services to London Paddington from Kemble station (12 miles), and Swindon station (20 miles) scheduled to take from Swindon approximately 55 minutes.

Ample local sporting opportunities including a number of golf courses, polo at Cirencester Park and National Hunt racing at Cheltenham.

Delightful walks are to be discovered from the property up to Stowell Park, Yanworth and Chedworth Roman Villa.

A good choice of private and state schools in the area. The former include Hatherop Castle, St Hugh's, Pinewood, Rendcomb, Beaudesert Park and the Cheltenham Colleges. The latter include the well-regarded Cotswold School in Bourton-on-the-Water and both Deer Park and Kingshill schools located in Cirencester.

There are gated entrances to both the front and side of the property. There is a gravel driveway to the side of the property with ample off street parking. Access to the first floor of the annexe is located from the parking area. To the rear of the property is a paved courtyard with a small outbuilding. A pretty walkway leads through the landscaped garden to the front entrance.

To the south of the house are the attractive landscaped gardens which border the mill stream. There are a variety of paved terraces, extensive lawns and a summer house. The gardens are interspersed with a number of mature shrubs and herbaceous boarders.
