Church Street, Shipton under Wychwood
£565,000 Sold Subject to Contract
A fantastic opportunity to take on this period house with oodles of period features and the potential to create a fabulous home.
Dating back circa 300 years, this large 5 bed house, which was once the local post office, has a driveway, garage and South facing garden.
The rooms are well proportioned, spacious and light and the property benefits from gas central heating.
There are lots of character features such as parquet flooring, period fireplaces, stone floors and bay windows and the property is listed in the 1978 Guinness Book of Records as the oldest village post office.
The front room on the first floor is being used as a reception room but could easily be used as a bedroom. Equally, a reception room on the ground floor, with bathroom adjoining, could be used as a bedroom.
The front of the house has wonderful views over the village green and beyond to the church.
The property is situated in the heart of the village which has a Post Office/convenience store, a primary school, 3 local public houses, a doctors surgery, a park and a village hall.
