Stamp of approval

The Old Post Office in Winterslow will certainly get the stamp of approval by purchasers looking to secure a fabulous character home in a wonderful village location and where the beautifully landscaped garden is a bonus. This pretty village lies fairly equal distance between Salisbury and Stockbridge with the mainline station at Grateley just over eight miles away.

Believed to date back to the early 19th century this substantial detached house has evolved over the years, most recently benefitting from an attractive orangery which is open plan to the kitchen and provides a delightful dining area with French doors to the garden. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of cream Shaker style units, oak work surfaces, an Aga set in a brick recess with beam above, further modern range style double oven, and an adjacent utility area with further storage and space for appliances. These areas benefit from underfloor heating.

The sitting room has a brick open fireplace with a wood burning stove with a further family area with a bay window. The formal dining room has exposed ceiling timbers and French doors to the garden. There is also a study which has been well fitted with office furniture, perfect for those working from home. There is also a ground floor shower room.

Upstairs there are four good size bedrooms, two on one side of the house with the superb family bathroom between which has twin basins and a wide sweep of cupboards beneath. The split level landing leads off on the other side to the master bedroom, complete with its own shower room, and the fourth double bedroom.

The mature, well stocked landscaped gardens enjoy a good degree of privacy and there is also a gated driveway, a barn style double garage and separate timber building.
