Full Details

DESCRIPTION Welcome to the Old Post Office, a charming and characterful Grade II Listed stone build cottage with a recently rethatched roof and a Collyweston slate porch. Extended to incorporate the Victorian brick-built range of outbuildings in 2004, the cottage has been well maintained and includes improvements to the layout of the first and ground floor which make living in the cottage very flexible. There is gas central heating throughout.

Upon entering the property there is an open lobby to the sitting room, which has a bay window to the front aspect. From the sitting room there are stairs to the first floor and also two steps leading up to the dining room, where there is a stone fireplace with gas fired coal effect stove. Next comes the spacious breakfast kitchen, which has fully fitted shaker style units with integrated Rangemaster hob, oven, dishwasher, and room for a large table. Leading off from this room are the sunroom, snug and family bathroom. The family bathroom includes a roll top bath, hand-basin, toilet, and large linen-cupboard. Carrying on through the house you enter the cleverly extended outbuildings, first into the snug, which is a great place to relax in front of the wood burning stove, and then through to the master bedroom and en-suite shower room, with clothes pulley.
Up the stairs from the sitting room there are two double bedrooms both with sloping eaves, one fitted with a capacious airing cupboard. A shower room, including toilet and basin, is located between the bedrooms.

Entering the garden from the south-west facing sunroom to a patio area, follow the gravel path alongside the rockery which also incorporates a model train track and up on to a deck and fully insulated home office / hobby room.
