The Old Post Office is believed to date from around 1800 and has handsome painted brick and rendered elevations beneath a clay tiled roof. The house has a later extension at the rear and modern double glazed windows.

A panelled front door leads into the sitting room, a lovely room with an ingle-nook fireplace fitted with a multi-fuel stove; the room has exposed timbers, the staircase to first floor and oak flooring running through to the opening to the dining area of the well-fitted kitchen. The kitchen has painted cabinets with beech work surfaces, a Rangemaster range cooker, fitted dishwasher, many windows overlooking the rear garden, and also a stable door and French windows to the drive. The family room is a cosy double aspect room with an open fireplace.

Stairs lead to a half-landing, off which is a study with window to rear, and a family bathroom with roll-top bath and shower in cubicle. From the main landing are the master bedroom with window to front and en-suite shower room and bedroom 2 with window to front and door to en-suite shower room. The second floor gives access to bedrooms 3 and 4 with large dormer windows giving excellent views to the south over farmland and orchards.

* The Old Post Office is situated in the attractive rural village of Stourmouth. The nearby village of Preston (1 mile) has a range of local facilities including shops, pub and primary school. The large village of Wingham (3 miles) has an excellent range of local shops, inns and restaurants.

* The cathedral City of Canterbury with its exceptional shopping centre and cultural facilities also has an excellent range of both state and independent schools.

* The high speed rail service runs from Canterbury to St Pancras in less than 60 minutes; there are also commuter and stopping services to London Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street.

To the front of the house is a small area of gravelled garden bordered by laurel hedging with access to the front door. A gravelled drive is on the west side with a 5-bar gate leading to parking and turning areas at the rear of the house. Adjacent is an excellent coach-house of brick construction under a slate roof with an up-and-over door to a single garage and pedestrian door to a hallway with steps up to a games room with a vaulted ceiling.

The gardens stretch out behind the house and are of a good size being mainly laid to lawn and bordered with mature hedging and fencing. There is a modern heated, liner pool, approximately chest height and measuring approximately 20\' x 10\' with stone-paved surround and adjacent is a modern pine chalet (approx 15\' x 10\') with power and light and sauna. Next door is an aluminium framed greenhouse (approx 15\' x 8\').
