Description

The Old Post Office (formerly London House) is a Grade II listed timber framed house which is believed to date back to the mid 17th century.

The house has many original features including exceptionally wide elm floorboards to some of the rooms.

In recent times the property functioned as the village shop and post office. Planning and listed building consent was granted in June of 2018 for change of use to the shop element into residential accommodation and conversion of part of the large outbuilding to the rear into a self contained annexe. The approved plans shown in the consented drawings turn the property into an attractive home which features three first floor double bedrooms and two bathrooms and the former shop on the ground floor becomes a large kitchen/breakfast room and a sitting room.

There is also a study, entrance hallway, utility and ground floor shower room and beneath the sitting room and study is an original cellar.

Outside there is a paved courtyard with gated access which leads up to a large weather-boarded outbuilding providing two garages and a large further space divided into two which has consent to be converted to a 1 bedroom annexe.

To the rear of this building is a garden with a large productive apple tree and fenced and hedged boundaries.

Additional Information
The bow windows within the former shop front are to be removed and replaced with a large sash/casement window at the expense of the Thurlow Estate. Drawings are in the process of being approved and the works will be carried out prior to completion of the sale.
