A beautifully presented Grade II listed 4 bedroom thatched cottage dating back from the mid 19th Century but reputed to be much older. The cottage has a brick plinth, mainly rendered elevations relieved by stone dressings, under at thatched ridged roof. In recent times the Old Post Office has undergone a programme of complete refurbishment and rrestoration and now offers a comfortable and versatile accommodation.
The Old Post Office was last used as a village post office in the 1960's and since then has been carefully restored as a family home, keeping much of its original character and charm. The property carries a Grade II listing and it is of special architectural and historical interest.
Particular features include the fine drawing room with an inglenook fireplace, a delightful split level reception hallway, a large Amdega conservatory and a very well presented Smallbone kitchen. The four bedrooms have two bathrooms en-suite and two en-suite shower rooms.
The Old Post Office is set on a site that extends to approximately 3/4 of an acre. The gardens are an outstanding feature, enjoying a southerly aspect. The beautifully landscaped gardens are a typical traditional cottage garden style with abundance of well stocked flower and shrub borders. There is a large expanse of well maintained lawn leading to a central terrace with a pergola. Wealth of specimen trees and shrubs leading to a tranquil pond surrounded by wildlife meadow.
There is a secure driveway with electric double entrance gates that leads to a courtyard where there is space to park several vehicles.
Mains water and electricity. Private drainage.
The house has the benefit of a pressurised oil fired central heating system. The thatch roof was fully replaced in 2014.
