Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated within a picturesque Yorkshire Dales village, The Old Post Office is an immensely characterful property bursting with original period features at every turn. Dating back to 1630, the property has been sympathetically renovated by the current owners; they have relished restoring and unearthing the slate uprights in the walls, fireplaces, oak beams and lintels, exposed stone work, stone mullion windows, wood panelling and doors, oak staircase and picture rails.
The accommodation is deceptively spacious with three double bedrooms and a stylish bathroom to the first floor. There is also an open plan space which could be closed off to provide a child's bedroom, small study or store room. There is a good sized sitting room, dining room, breakfast room, fitted kitchen and cloakroom to the ground floor. There's no garden at the back but the pretty walled fore garden provides a perfect low upkeep space for pots and to sit out and enjoy watching village life go by!

Mains electricity, drainage and metered water. Two multi-fuel stoves and electric heating from storage heaters. Fibre-optic broadband connected. Carpets, some light fittings and some white goods are included in the sale. Garden table and chairs are available separately.

This popular village is well-served with a school, church, post office/village store, The Gamecock Inn and the Traddock Country House Hotel, village hall and tennis/sports facilities. The village is a short drive from Settle, which offers a wider selection of facilities. For those that love the great outdoors, Austwick is well placed with lots of good walks/runs/cycle routes from the door.

The property has good access onto the A65 and therefore makes it convenient for commuting. From the A65, take the first turning into Austwick and continue into the village. At the fork in the road bear left and after passing the village shop and village hall on your right, The Old Post Office is the first property on the right with on street parking to the front.
