If you are looking for a new home close to the Hadleigh area, then look no further than our Property Of The Week features, which showcase the most interesting homes for sale on our Hadleigh Nub News property pages, now being sponsored by estate agents Chapman Sickels.

This week's outstanding home on offer is this charming and well-presented cottage with parking and private gardens giving far-reaching rural views, on the market with Chapman Stickels for offers in excess of £350,000, down from the previous price of £369k.

Located in the centre of Hitcham, The Old Post Office is a charming and unique period cottage, according to its Grade II listing dates from the 17th Century.

The original part is straw thatched, with a later addition to the east, which is probably early Victorian.

The accommodation has much appeal, with the kitchen / breakfast room, sitting room and dining room all being open plan.

Numerous period features are evident which includes exposed wall and ceiling timbers on both floors, and a functioning open fire to the sitting room. Unlike some other cottages of its ilk, the accommodation is both spacious and bright – particularly on the ground floor where there are numerous casement windows.

The first floor provides a 'useable' open landing area such as a dressing room.

The remaining first floor accommodation provides two, well-proportioned bedrooms with an ensuite shower room to the main bedroom.

Outside, the property offers an enclosed and private courtyard garden to the south.

To the north is the driveway providing space for two cars, which in turn leads onto an area of lawn with patio area to the southwest giving wonderful, far-reaching views over undulating countryside.
