Property Summary

Brought to the market for the first time in over forty years this charming Grade II listed five bedroom character cottage with additional two bedroom annexe, located within the heart of the village, close to all of the local amenities, and countryside walks.

THE PROPERTY
Brought to the market for the first time in over forty years, believed to date back to Circa 1700s The Old Post Office has served a number of different uses over the years, including a coaching Inn called The Crown, which served as an Inn for people travelling by horse from London to Exeter. In Circa 1900s the property then became the village shop, and later the post office. So it has played a major role in the villages history.

This charming Grade II listed character cottage, now a well-loved private home, with a two bedroom annexe, is located within the heart of the village, close to all of the local amenities, and countryside walks.

The spacious and versatile, beautifully presented accommodation expands over 3500 square foot and includes a large kitchen dining room, with double doors that fully open into the drawing room with wood burning stove, creating a fantastic open entertaining space. In addition is a quaint snug area, with double doors out to the garden, a sitting room with additional fireplace and a downstairs WC. Upstairs there are five bedrooms, three with built in storage. These are served by an ensuite bathroom, plus an additional family bathroom with separate bath and shower. There is also an expansive loft space which could provide further potential (STPP).

In addition to the main house is a self-contained annexe which could serve a number of different uses, and includes a kitchen, separate utility, spacious sitting room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The property also benefits from a large cellar room perfect for storage, an attractive low maintenance garden, off road parking for several vehicles and a number of different sheds and shelters.

OUTSIDE
The property can be accessed by foot from the Hindon High Street, or alternatively via a private driveway with shared vehicular access leading you around to double wooden gates, in which you enter a private parking area, providing off road parking for several vehicles.

The private rear garden can be accessed from both the kitchen diner and the snug, as well as the annexe. The garden has been designed with ease of maintenance in mind, with a large patio area perfect for outdoor entertaining and alfresco dining. The garden is then bordered with an array of colourful planting giving it a really nice cottage feel throughout.

In addition is a large area of shelter perfect for storing logs and garden tools. The garden is enclosed to all sides giving it a very secure feel.
