Full description

Located within the quaint village of Wearhead, this unique property would make a fantastic purchase. Whether you are looking for a family home, a holiday rental or a commercial property (subject to planning),  this could be the perfect choice for you. Previously the village post office, this property has retained many of its authentic and original features, and the current owners have maintained the property to the highest of standards. Offering further potential, the top floor could be converted (subject to planning) in to an extensive master bedroom with a bathroom, as there is already a fixed staircase in place. 

With all the benefits of a peaceful village life, but still within easy access of major commuting routes, local amenities, main transport links, and you can even have your weekly food shop delivered should you not wish to venture out! The property offers stunning views, and the many windows within the property allow plenty of natural light to flow through, making the property feel extremely spacious and warm. Unlike many similar properties, 'The Old Post Office' benefits from its own private garden. This extensive space is home to a tree house, vegetable patch grass, and also there is access to the river. Should you wish to bring a horse or small animals on to the land there is a private road in order to gain access. 

The ground floor space is impressive, and it is extremely heart warming that the layout of the original post office is still in place. The open plan ground floor combines the kitchen, dining room and living room in one. The entrance vestibule is a fantastic original feature, and means you aren't entering the house immediately into your living space. The ground floor also benefits from a separate utility area with a wc. To the first floor there are four bedrooms, bedroom one being the most impressive, with extensive space, there is also a family bathroom. On the landing there is also a fixed staircase leading up to the loft space, which gives buyers the foundations to develop the top floor to suit their needs. 

Early viewing is recommended to appreciate the location, space and potential.
