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.
