If you are looking for a piece of 18th Century period charm, look no further than this property set in the village of Flax Bourton.
As the name suggests, this beautiful Old Post Office is abundant in glimpses of the past, with feature exposed beams, the original safe, wood burner stove and stunning beam over, Belfast sink and walk-in pantry.
Tucked away in this ever-popular village, this property offers a lot more than initially meets the eye, with a spacious feel as soon as you step into the entrance hall. From here is a sitting room with loads of space to relax and be cosy with a roaring fire and additional space for storage and dining. The kitchen/breakfast room is vast is in size and layered with a country -esque theme, with very attractive base, drawer and wall units, contrasting work surfaces over, Belfast sink, dishwasher, space for fridge/freezer and table and chairs, with a walk-in pantry area for further storage, and tiled floors. Beyond this is a utility room with plumbing for washing machine and tumble drier and a further boot room and cloakroom. From the hallway you have the benefit for a dining room with feature fireplace and it continues with a room that is currently being used as a dog grooming room. This of course can be adjusted for us humans to benefit from as well.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms all with useful storage areas and a family bathroom having a bath, with shower over, and an airing cupboard. The accommodation doesn't end there, up another floor is a superb attic room, which is over 22-foot-long and benefits from three windows and heating, so is useful for number of purposes; including getting some time to work in peace and quiet from home.
The outside is a delight with a very private, enclosed rear garden with lovely views of the church. Laid in part to lawn and also with a courtyard style area to enjoy the sun, there is also a useful coal shed. At the front, behind a very pretty gate, there is a parking space over an existing deep curb for a vehicle.
