A traditional Grade II Listed Cotswold cottage.
The Old Post Office is a traditional semi-detached Cotswold cottage. The property is jointly listed as Grade II with the adjoining Home Farm Cottage. Dating back to 1703, which is carved into the ground floor window, the Old Post Office is a lovely example of Cotswold architecture with mullion windows, chamfered beams, inglenook fireplace and elm winder staircase.
The cottage benefits from a larger than expected landscaped garden of over half an acre divided into different areas and terraces. Within the garden is a detached home office, a car port and two sheds.
The current owners refurbished the property in 2009 including underfloor heating on the ground floor. There is scope to extend the cottage subject to the usual consents. The Old Post Office has a track record as a successful holiday let and as such will be of interest to investors, as well as those seeking a full time home or weekend retreat in an idyllic village.
Chastleton is in the county of Oxfordshire, but has a Gloucestershire postal address.
The adjoining cottage has a right of way to the front footpath to access the front entrance door.
There is also the historic right to draw water from the well at the rear of The Old Post Office which was established prior to mains water being connected to both properties.
Water rates are split 50/50 with adjoining cottage.
