Charming Grade II Listed period cottage in the heart of the village

Believed to date from C17 with later additions and having been the subject of sympathetic transformations across the years, The Old Post House strikes a stylishly crafted balance between the past and the present with retained period features including a C19 shop window.

Inside, to the front aspect, there is a comfortable sitting room with wood-burning stove and an adjoining dining area providing a setting for both family meals and hosting guests. This room flows through to the light-filled kitchen/breakfast room which benefits from double glazed doors to the garden as well as natural light from a series of windows on the stairway. Fitted with modern wall and base level units, the kitchen has space for domestic appliances, with additional storage and a home for further apparatus in the well- appointed cellar/utility which is reached via a staircase in the hallway. Also on the ground floor, what was originally a small dining room is currently used as a study/studio.

On the first floor, a bright spacious landing leads to the four bedrooms, with the principal having a vaulted ceiling showcasing exposed rafters and an en-suite shower room. One of the bedrooms is used as a dressing room and has two walls of hanging and storage. A family bathroom with a freestanding bath and separate spacious shower completes the upper floor.

To the front of the property there is space near the entrance door for a garden bench to enjoy the westerly aspect and a side gate provides access to the garden, where the black weatherboarded elevations of the modern rear addition are revealed. A brick paved patio adjoins the house offering opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation, with terraced flower beds and steps leading to an area laid to lawn. The garden is part brick walled and there are planted borders to the boundaries with a selection of shrubs and perennial plants.
