A charming three bedroomed cottage filled with an abundance of character, set within the sought after village of Barningham. Available with off road parking and extensive gardens to the rear, the property would ideally suit a variety of purchasers.
The Property Post Cottage is a charming and deceptively spacious character cottage set within the desirable village of Barningham. The property is formerly the Post Office for the village.
The main entrance leads into the reception vestibule which in turn leads into the living room. Featuring flagged stone flooring and a multi-fuel stove set within an impressive inglenook, the room is flooded with natural light courtesy of the large former shop window front.
A step up leads into the kitchen which is fitted with a range of base and wall mounted storage units which are topped with granite worktops and incorporate a porcelain Belfast sink. There is ample space for a freestanding Range cooker and integrated dishwasher, while there is an inglenook housing a wood fired stove and pizza oven. The kitchen is fitted with Karndean flooring.
An arched opening reclaimed from a Church leads into a useful pantry area with shelving and under counter space for a freestanding fridge and freezer. Steps then lead up to the rear hallway with access to the gardens and utility room with space, power and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Returning to the kitchen, a door leads to the inner hallway with stairs rising to the first floor landing. The ground floor WC and walk-in larder can be accessed from here.
The master bedroom is a well proportioned double with a Cathedral beam and fitted wardrobes. Flooded with natural light, there is partially exposed stonework to the walls.
The second bedroom is a further double bedroom facing the front, featuring a fitted wardrobe, while the third bedroom, also a double, facing the rear of the property.
The family bathroom completes the accommodation and is recently fitted with a modern white suite comprising a low level WC, a wash hand basin set upon a pedestal and a panel enclosed bath with mains fed shower, with Fired Earth tiling throughout.
To the front of the property, there is a gravelled driveway with parking for two vehicles, as well as a delightful cottage garden planted with a variety of flowering borders. To the rear, there is an enclosed patio area with a useful outbuilding which leads to the gardens which are predominantly laid to lawn and are stocked with a variety of plants, shrubs, flowers and a vegetable garden. There is also a timber summerhouse, which is full insulated and benefits from electricity. This space would be well suited as a home office.
Services The property benefits from mains water, electricity and drainage. The central heating system is powered by an air source heat pump.
Note 1. The Yews has a right of access over a part of the garden for refuse collection. Post Cottage benefits from a right of access over Britannia Cottage for the same.
2. The air source heat pump qualifies for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme, receiving quarterly payments. The payments will be transferrable to new owners. Currently payments are approximately £375 per quarter, subject to the terms of the grant being met. End date of the grant is to be confirmed.
