Charming Grade II listed cottage in a sought after village.
The Old Post Office is a charming Grade II listed cottage, which as its name suggests, was formerly the village Post Office. The most appealing elevations are of alternating panels of red brick and knapped flint and stone, with stone quoins to the front, under a slate roof. The elevations are enhanced by pretty small-paned cast iron casement to most windows. This much loved home has been well maintained but would now benefit from some modernisation and redecoration. Many rooms feature double aspects, making the cottage bright, and there is oil fired central heating.
A panelled front door opens into an entrance porch, and a glazed door then leads into the reception/ dining hall with double aspect windows, brick chimney breast and fireplace, wood wall panelling and an understairs cloaks storage cupboard. The sitting room also features double aspects, a painted wood fire surround with stone inset, hearth and open grate. The timber sun room is approached from the dining hall, and has doors to the terrace. The kitchen has windows to front and rear and is fitted with a range of cupboards and drawers, sink unit, double oven and hob, there is also a large utility/ boot room with a further sink, oil fired boiler, range of storage cupboards, stable door to the rear garden and door to a cloakroom. On the first floor are two bedrooms, the master having an en suite shower room with shower, wash basin and WC and two built in cupboards, the second bedroom has a built in wardrobe and the family bathroom also houses the airing cupboard.
A shingle driveway with extensive parking and turning area leads to the timber garage with power and light. The gardens are a delightful feature extending in all to about 0.63 acres and being well stocked with a variety of shrubs, trees and herbaceous plants. At the front a central path between two lawns leads to the front door. The expansive rear garden faces west and has a paved terrace with pergola over, and featuring the original cottage's well, a large lawn with a belt of trees and shrubs at the rear, and a kitchen garden area sheltered by a beech hedge. Within the garden are several useful timber garden stores and a greenhouse.
