Notes and Comments:

Situation and Description
The small village of Letton straddles the A438 and comprises individual properties centred around a village church and public house. The larger villages of Eardisley and Staunton on Wye provide primary schools, a tennis club, community centres, a village store, and the very popular Oakchurch Farm Shop. The charming market town of Hay on Wye is also within easy reach along with the cathedral city of Hereford. The beautiful river Wye is also close by and there are a number of excellent walks.

This attractive Grade II Listed cottage is full of character and charm and, as the name suggests, was once the village post office. Extended in recent years and much improved by the current owner, it offers very adaptable and comfortable living accommodation with a light and well-planned kitchen/ breakfast room, two good reception rooms and a lovely master bedroom with plenty of storage space.

The former large, detached garage has been converted into a clinic and offers two ground floor rooms, a waiting area and WC, with an external staircase to a first floor. The accommodation has the potential for a variety of other uses including annex or holiday accommodation, subject to approval. The gardens are well stocked and lead to an indoor swimming pool which is a great asset to the property.

On arrival a drive from the main road leads to a good-sized parking and turning area, with a front door to a welcoming entrance hall with vaulted ceiling. From here access can be gained to a comfortable dining or living room with a dual aspect and exposed timbering. The sitting room is a good size and again has plenty of character with a stone inglenook fireplace with fitted wood burner. The kitchen/breakfast room is a lovely space and is full of light with windows on two sides and large doors opening out to the gardens. There are an excellent range of fitted units, incorporating a number of fitted appliances, and supported by a useful utility room that provides additional practical space.

From the reception hall steps lead up to a half landing where a well fitted shower room supports two double bedrooms, both with vaulted ceilings, exposed timbers and one with fitted wardrobes and dressing table.
A separate staircase leads up to a lovely master bedroom which also has a vaulted ceiling and includes an extensive range of fitted wardrobes and cupboards, a dual aspect with views over the gardens and beyond, and door to an en suite shower room with all the usual fittings.

A short distance from the house is a former garage which has been converted to create a clinic for the current owner and previously was a hairdressing salon. With two good sized ground floor rooms both with wash hand basins as well as a small reception hall, or waiting room with WC, the ground floor space offers the potential for a variety of uses, from further family accommodation to a home office. An external staircase at one end leads up to a first-floor studio and enjoys views over farmland at one end.

The gardens are well stocked with a variety of plants and shrubs and are laid mostly to lawn with seating areas including raised decking with lovely open views. A garden room doubles as a gym and measures 11’2 x 9’ and has double glazed doors and windows overlooking the gardens and power and lighting. From the house a brick pillared pergola with climbing wisteria, clematis, virgina creeper, honeysuckle and jasmine leads to a detached indoor swimming pool which is a real surprise, and a fantastic feature. With sliding doors to the front, the pool area measures 24’ x 12’ and has its own heating system as well as a changing room and pump room. To the rear of the swimming pool there are further useful garden stores and behind the house is an area ideal as a small kitchen garden with a greenhouse.
