    About this property

    • Postleigh is the former village Post Office, situated at the heart of the village close to many of the amenities. The Georgian property offers a wealth of character but remains unlisted, meaning it has been extensively improved inside and out while retaining many of its original features incorporated into the modern design. These include the original shop front, timber beams, brick walls and sash windows. It's an imposing house, with excellent kerb appeal which provides a great first impression, which is continued within. Externally there is off-street parking, an enclosed garden and storage.

      Arranged over three floors, Postleigh's extensive accommodation extends to more than 4400 sq ft and is fantastically well proportioned, with great versatility for entertaining friends at home, big family celebrations and the demands of daily family life. The main living space is mostly open plan, with a snug, dining room and family room all "zoned" but interconnecting. There is also a separate living room and snug, plus a garden room to the rear opening to the garden. The kitchen is a good size and features a large central island, with an adjoining utility room. There are two staircases up to the first floor, where there are three double bedrooms, two family bathrooms and a large suite, with walk-in wardrobe and en suite bath/shower room. The top floor is dedicated to a vast principal suite which has a vaulted ceiling, dressing room and a huge en suite.

      The house is set directly on the High Street in a corner position, with the off-street parking located to the rear on a gated gravel driveway where there is space for several cars. The partly-walled garden adjoins the parking area and is lawned, with mature trees and hedging providing privacy around the boundary. The south-westerly aspect is ideal for soaking up the sun from the expansive paved terrace. There is storage within three stone-built storage rooms.
