The Old Post Office, as one would expect, is a Grade II Listed thatched cottage, the front of which was used for many years as the village post office. It has since been incorporated back into the living quarters and now the whole property offers a spacious and characterful home over 3 floors. The room sizes, particularly on the ground floor, are generous and would suit those wishing for space to perhaps work from home. The property has mains gas central heating and is part cob construction and part blockwork with a part thatched (replaced November 2020 - January 2021) and part tiled roof.
There are two main reception rooms to the ground floor with 3 entrances in and out. The kitchen/breakfast room opens into a rear workshop or store (currently used as a motorbike garage) which in turn opens onto the lower garden path. It is worth noting that this area could be utilised for a number of purposes. On the first floor are two bedrooms and the family bathroom. A third room is used as a study as from here, there are further stairs to the master bedroom.
Outside, to the side is off-road parking and an area of lawn setting it back from the adjacent cul-de-sac road. Through a gate, the pathway leads to steps with two ponds (with new pump!) and then the garden levels out to a patio. The remainder is lawned. In total the garden extends to approx 16m x 8m and has timber fencing and a garden shed.
1)There is a right of way for the neighbour to walk along the rear path to access their garden gate.
2)The property is subject to a small flying freehold of which buyers should be aware – ask the agents if unsure.
3)Planning was granted for the change of use so it is residential now.

DIRECTIONS : From Crediton and entering Newton St Cyres on the A377, as you proceed down the hill, bear slightly left of the bus shelter and The Old Post Office will be on the left adjacent to Godolphin Close.
NEWTON ST CYRES, between Exeter and Crediton is widely regarded as one of Devon's finest villages, with a gentle stream running through the middle under its ancient stone bridge, alongside the wonderful 15th Century church built in honour of the martyr St Cyres, there are few places which match this tranquil setting. The brand new primary school is a fantastic addition & no village is complete without a pub and Newton St Cyres does not disappoint with the atmospheric Beer Engine, a popular watering hole on the Rail Ale Trail, a tour of pubs near stations along the Tarka Line railway between Exeter and Barnstaple. The recently opened Belluno Italian Restaurant is also one to visit and cheese lovers can indulge themselves at Quickes Farm shop, based half a mile west along the A377, the main road to North Devon. There is a handy twice weekly post office service at the Village Hall. These outstanding features are supplemented by that iconic symbol of the English village, the cricket pitch. The crack of leather on willow fills the air when the village team play in the summer months. Footballers don’t miss out either - there are two well-maintained pitches, home to Newton St Cyres FC.
