Postbox Cottage is a substantially improved four bedroom detached home enjoying a picture perfect location within the sought after Herefordshire village of Longtown. As the name suggests, the property was, up until twenty years or so ago, formerly the village Post Office and has recently undergone a fundamental overhaul by the current owners including renewal of the wiring and plumbing. At over 2600 square feet, Postbox Cottage offers exceptionally generous accommodation with the ground floor comprising a welcoming entrance hall leading to the lounge which enjoys views out to the garden, 16’ dining room, as well as an office area and rear entrance with potential to create a downstairs cloakroom. It should be noted that these rooms would benefit from redecoration to complete the project undertaken by the owners. In contrast the impressive kitchen/breakfast room has been fully refurbished with a modern integrated kitchen offset by a feature period stove, and there is also a large pantry with extensive storage and a separate utility room. One particularly exciting element of the ground floor accommodation is the 37’ workshop that runs across the front of the property. Formerly the shop front from its previous incarnation, this provides a wonderful opportunity for those purchasers looking for an impressive studio/work space, or seeking to run a business from home. Upstairs the property is similarly generous in its scope as it comprises three large double bedrooms (one with full four piece en-suite bathroom), a smaller fourth double bedroom and a stylish four piece family bathroom. Postbox Cottage enjoys a garden of approximately a third of an acre which further benefits from superb views across the rolling Herefordshire countryside. To the rear of the house, there is a charming formal garden with meticulously planted borders, raised beds including herbs and soft fruits and a greenhouse. To the side there is a driveway providing parking for five cars beyond which there is a large area of garden interspersed with a wealth of mature shrubs and trees including two apple trees and a medlar fruit tree. This section is partially laid to lawn, with a large section awaiting seeding. There is also the added benefit of a stone built garden store/workshop. In summary, Postbox Cottage is an unique home offering a rare combination of generous accommodation, delightful gardens and flexible ancillary space all set within a superb and sought after village location.
