A truly delightful family home in parts dating back to 1828 from information taken from old deed manuscripts. The property can be found in an enviable, central, position in the popular Whittington Conservation Area, slap bang between the villages two fine pubs and only yards away from local shops. Having been a happy family home for nearly 18 years, it is time for a 'new chapter' and the current owners are looking for a new family to make memories of their own in this wonderful property. The modern and flexible layout provides 1,910 sq.ft of beautifully presented accommodation catering to the modern day needs of a growing family. Comprising: entrance hallway, office, formal dining room, sitting room with log burner, open plan kitchen and dining room, cloakroom, utility and an attractive living room with bi-fold door access to the garden. The first floor is equally impressive accessed via two separate staircases with the front of the house boasting three bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes and en suites, whilst the rear of the property provides a separate bedroom suite with shower room perfect for 'annex' accommodation. Externally there is a beautifully presented garden with patio seating areas, shaped lawn, flourishing borders, brick outbuildings, extensive private gated driveway and large storage shed. The property also lies within the King Edwards catchment area.
Viewing is essential to appreciate the enviable position of this property and the abundant charm and warmth you feel once inside.
An impressive ground floor space extending to nearly 1,145 square feet of flexible family accommodation catering to the, ever changing, modern day needs of a growing family. Simply put, the array of reception rooms can be used in any way you see fit, whether it is formal drawing and dining rooms, home office or treatment rooms or play and gaming rooms. Or a mixture of 'all of the above'. The 'showpiece' room of the ground floor is undoubtedly the open plan kitchen diner which then opens in to a recently added garden room with stairs to a separate bedroom and bathroom. It is how these rooms interact which gives great flexibility to the ground floor and the current owners manage to keep a more formal sitting room and dining room at the front of the property, a useful home office, bright entrance hallway and guest cloakroom and utility.
The first floor is equally impressive and brilliantly lends itself to 'annex' accommodation. The front of the house offers an impressive layout of three bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes and three en suites. It is probably no surprise that this configuration was the product of raising two teenage daughters in this house. The second 'upstairs' is accessed via a separate oak staircase rising from the garden room and also offers a spacious double room, built in wardrobes and a modern en suite bathroom.
The Old Post Office is situated at the heart of Whittington's conservation area and the external features of this property offer similar flexibility to the interior. There is a delightfully presented garden adjacent to the house with a number of patio seating areas with outdoor fireplace and brick chimney, neat lawn, well stocked flourishing borders and manicured hedged boundaries. There are brick and tile stores, a vast amount of private parking with electronically operated gates and one of the largest storage sheds we have seen. All covered by CCTV.
