Property Details

Absolutely charming detached cottage oozing with character and wonderfully quirky features. The property benefits from 3 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, double workshop, driveway parking and a substantial garden with original Victorian pond.

The Old Post Office underwent the first phase of renovation in 2022/2023 including a new roof and boiler and now offers a new buyer the opportunity to put their own stamp on it with further cosmetic upgrades. Already benefitting from double glazing and oil central heating, the accommodation comprises, on the ground floor – entrance hall, kitchen, breakfast room, utility, dining room and sitting room with wood burner. The first floor is split level and provides 2 generous double bedrooms, a single bedroom/study and bathroom which was refurbished in 2018. There is also a large loft space with 2 access points. Externally the property has a tarmac driveway to the side providing off road parking for 2 cars and in turn leading to the double workshop which has light and power. The gardens lie to the rear of the property and have previously been landscaped to provide terraces, 3 ponds (one being an original Victorian feature), an abundance of mature shrubs and trees and a barn which is now in need of renovation but provides a good footprint for future development of a similar type. The whole plot extends to just under 1/4 acre.

The property is situated in the heart of the rural village of Washford. The village itself offers a shop/post office, well regarded pub, hairdressers, agricultural merchants, first school and the ancient monument of Cleeve Abbey as well as Torre Cider farm and animal park. The busy village of Williton is 2 miles away and offers a larger range of shops and cafes and the Coastal town of Minehead is 7 miles, offering a number of schools, supermarkets, shops and restaurants. Washford is on the bus route from Minehead to Taunton, where you can find fast rail services to London, Exeter and Bristol.

    Happy Customers...

    • “I highly recommend Red Deer Country Estate Agents. I found them to be very professional yet approachable. I would like to thank Zoe in particular for her help and her patience in what turned out to be a longer than expected purchase of my lovely cottage.”

       Diane Bertolatti

    • “Red Deer Country has been excellent; especially Zoe who produced a lovely brochure of the property gave helpful advice and went over and above what was expected to help secure the sale. I would highly recommend this estate agent for their professional, efficient yet friendly approach – the whole team was always helpful. Red Deer are also very competitively priced.”

       Julia Johnstone

    • “When we decided to let our flat, Red Deer were not only knowledgeable but also extremly helpful and flexible. It was their flexibility and willingness to help us in the way we wanted to be helped, that made the whole experience effective and relaxing. With the formalities all dealt with professionally, it gave us and the tenant a firm foundation to build a trusting relationship.”

       Duncan McCanlis

    • “We were very impressed by Red Deer Estate Agents in Williton. Zoe, a Managing Director, made us feel that she was on top of the situation at every turn. Other staff were also really helpful. I can thoroughly recommend this agent who dealt with both our sale and purchase in a very professional manner.”

       Robin Nuttall

    • “Ups and Downs initially, probably the best locally compared to Willkie, GTH, F&S, Webbers. Zoe went above and beyond to help issues with the purchase benefiting both vendor/myself to successfully complete where there were issues with certificates and indemnity insurances wouldn’t work due to renovation. Great experience.”

       Chris S

    • “I engaged with Red Deer to sell my property in April of this year, they were fantastic in advising me how to prepare the property for sale, arranging viewings and setting the price. We completed by the 30th June, Ray and Zoe were on hand throughout to assist and also communicate with the buyer, I was very happy with the service I received and would recommend their service to anyone looking to sell their property.”

       Adrian Fawden

    • “This company has without doubt saved my sanity. Our property was placed on the market at a very reasonable price for a quick sale with another agents March 2020. Red Deer came along in September asked if they could help and sold it by today, but did get 2 other buyers between then and now, who messed them about somewhat and today we completed 3rd time lucky. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were all very efficient, especially Zoe, who had most of the dealings with us, but also the other staff who leaped into the breach whilst Zoe was on holiday this week. Great company, can’t think of anything “bad” to say at all.”

       Patricia Ward

    • “Excellent customer service, go out of their way to show around prospective buyers.”

       Helen Rollason

    • “Very very impressed with this company. After trying to sell our property with another agent for 7 months decided to try Red Deer without any expectations. They were excellent. Came out. Gave us a detailed assessment of our property made some suggestions and then sold it within 3 weeks.”
