This very pleasant four- bedroomed traditional stone-built cottage is situated in a wonderful rural location overlooking open countryside, with a distant sea view to the east and mountains to the west. The property has various renovated outbuildings, and attached to the bungalow is the old post office. The former post office has been renovated and retains many of its originally features including the post office counters and storage desks. The post office has direct access into the main house, which means it could be used as a small shop or business. In good decorative order the accommodation consists of kitchen/diner, lounge, family room, bathroom, study, games room/workshop, sunroom, store room, studio and four bedrooms. The property benefits from solid fuel heating and is double glazing throughout, many of the rooms having Velux windows, giving the property lots of natural light. The mature garden is fully enclosed and is well established with trees and shrubs, there is a pond and garden shed. The property has an additional 1.9 acres approximately of land that is surrounded by natural peat-lands, farmland and is abundant with wildlife including deer, which are often seen right up to the boundary, along with pheasants, raptors and many other birds. There is a spacious gravelled driveway to the side providing off street parking for several cars. This property would make a great home with an option to run a business venture from.
