Guide Price £440,000

The Old Post Office is an attractive double fronted, stone built, period property in the centre of Thornton Rust. The property has been beautifully maintained and retains many original character features including panelling and fireplaces whilst also offering spacious and flexible living accommodation.

The property is entered via a welcoming entrance lobby which leads to the hall via an attractive glazed door. The lobby also leads to the kitchen which has quality fitted oak wall and base units complemented by composite marble worktops. There are integrated appliances including double oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher and fridge freezer as well as space for a dining table in the centre. A door leads through into the useful utility room which has further units, plumbing for a washing machine and original stone shelving.

Also on the ground floor is a living room with an impressive open fire set within cast iron surround and a snug, which could be used as a dining room, with an imposing inglenook fireplace with log burning stove that makes a brilliant space for entertaining.

To the rear of the property is a garden room with double doors that lead out on to the patio and to the sitting room which forms part of the former cart house. This room has an inglenook fireplace and log burning stove together with stairs leading up to the former hay loft and double bedroom. This could allow the flexibility for ancillary guest accommodation as there is also a shower room meaning it could be self-contained.

To the first floor are three further double bedrooms and a generous family bathroom with freestanding bath and shower cubicle.

Externally the property is complemented by pretty front gardens enclosed by cast iron railings, and a private rear garden with patio, lawn and a range of flower borders which make it a lovely space for an enthusiastic gardener and enjoying the fantastic views.

The Old Post Office would make a brilliant family home, second home or holiday let in a popular part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
