Believed to date from the mid-to-late 18th century, with later additions, The Old Post Office is an exceptionally picturesque family home. The current owners have extensively refurbished the property which is now beautifully presented throughout with contemporary styling which complements the property’s origins. A wellproportioned sitting room has an exposed cross beam and joists and a fireplace with timber lintel which is currently a decorative alcove. On the opposite side of the hall, the drawing room has a wood-burning stove and a door leading through to a snug, where skylights allow natural light to flood into this flexible-use room and a glazed door provides access to the rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room adjoins the drawing room and is fitted with attractive units, topped with a wood worksurface, with a blue AGA taking centre-stage. A stable door opens onto the front garden and there is ample space for a dining table beside the kitchen window. The ground floor accommodation also provides a study and contemporary shower room.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one currently in use as a dressing room, and a stylish bathroom which features a free-standing roll top bath. Each of the rooms on the first floor benefit from lovely countryside views.

Outside

The Old Post Office has plenty of kerb appeal. A white, rendered wall forms the front boundary, with a wooden gate giving access to the pathway which leads to the thatched porch. The front garden has attractively planted borders, with an area of lawn which offers a setting for outdoor dining adjacent to the entrance to the kitchen, taking advantage of the sunny, southerly aspect. To the rear of the property, the garden has a paved terrace and a lawn bordered by planting, and the views beyond take in the undulating landscape. There is access to the large store room from both front and rear gardens, which provides space for garden machinery and equipment, with potential options for additional uses.

Situation

The pretty village of Whitestone is small, but vibrant, with many clubs and societies meeting at the Parish Hall and walking, riding and cycling opportunities in the immediate vicinity. The larger village of Tedburn St Mary is nearby with amenities including a well-regarded primary school, village store and post office, two public houses and both cricket and football clubs. Crediton is also within easy reach with a more comprehensive range of facilities, including supermarkets and a leisure complex, whilst the Cathedral City of Exeter, with all its cultural and recreational opportunities is just 3 miles distant. Communication links are excellent with access to the A30 providing links to the M5 and A38, and the mainline station in Exeter offering commuters services into London, the Midlands, the north of England and Scotland. There are well regarded state and independent school in the area including Exeter Cathedral School, Exeter College (Ofsted 'Outstanding') The Maynard and Exeter School.
