This attractive late 17th Century three bedroomed stone cottage with thatched roof was formerly the Old Post Office situated on Post Office Lane, Lyndon. It has been renovated to a high standard whilst retaining many of its period features. Viewing is a must as the stonework and oak beams are delightful.

Outside there is a gated gravel driveway and ample parking. Two brick sheds and a stone utility outbuilding offer useful storage. A shelter for firewood has also been erected. The easily manageable garden is completely enclosed.

    The accommodation comprises on the ground floor, a lovely entrance hall with large inset feature fireplace and flagstone floor, a kitchen with fitted Oak units, Aga and quarry tile floor, and a comfortable carpeted sitting room with open fireplace. A staircase leads to the first floor consisting of three bedrooms; one of a good sized with en-suite, another large room at the far end, and a smaller bedroom and the family sized bathroom in-between.

    Outside a gated gravel drive opens-out into an area for parking vehicles. A gravel pathway leads from the rear door to an outhouse built in matching stone, set out for utility or storage use. There’s a brick shed alongside the driveway, divided into two separate areas offering useful storage. The manageable garden is completely enclosed by a stone wall at the rear and fencing on either side and has two terrific mature Silver Birch trees, planted borders and raised beds.

    The entrance hall would be equally suited for use as a dining room or living space. The kitchen features plumbing for a washing machine or dishwasher – if the latter is fitted then the outside utility building has plumbing for a washing machine and ample space for a tumble drier plus additional storage. Bedroom three would also make a good office space.
