The Old Post Office is a detached building consisting of a cosy one bed annexe flat and a luxery four bedroom house. Occasionally, off-season when the annexe is rented, the house is available for four people using two bedrooms for a bargain price. Located in the peaceful village of Marloes, within minutes of Marloes Sands and Musslewick, just two of the stunning beaches on the magnificent Pembrokeshire coast.
The house is surrounded to the rear and side by beautiful mature and secluded gardens. The downstairs is a large open plan area. A huge kitchen leads into a sun room with part glass roof and large sliding door opening onto patio area. This room has a sofa, two leather chairs and a couple of leather Turkish style bean bags. Down a step through a wide opening is the inner ‘snug’, with wood burning stove, two comfy sofas, shelving area housing TV, video and music system. A double sided thick velvet curtain can be drawn across to separate the two rooms to give that extra cosy feel to the snug, or when open, it is just one great space.
In the kitchen is a solid oak table, which when fitted with extra leaves, comfortably seats fourteen. It has a beautiful waxed terracotta tiled floor and is fitted with a Raeburn oven (great for roasts), electric oven, gas hob with wok attachment, fridge freezer and dishwasher.
Off the kitchen is a utility / shower room. A walk in shower – ideal for use after the beach, and large enough for little ones to share. The utility room is equipped with washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, Belfast sink, wooden draining board and pulley clothes horse suspended from ceiling (good for drying out walking and beach gear).
The large hall area has extensive hanging space for coats, an upright piano and small library. There is also a downstairs toilet.
The upstairs is L shaped and houses four bedrooms: you will be able to chose one of the two larger bedrooms one with super-king, the other with king bed. All rooms have shutters or Venetian blinds in addition to black-out blinds.
In the main bathroom, the bath has telephone style taps and shower unit, sink and toilet. In addition there is a separate shower room accessible from the landing via western style stripped pine swing doors. Off the landing is a large airing cupboard, ideal for airing any damp clothing and towels.
The solar panels are really effective and provide the bulk of hot water throughout most of the year, central heating can be turned on when the weather is not obliging.
A number of roof lights allow sunshine to stream into the upstairs area, down the stairs and, via a glass ceiling, into the downstairs hall, making this a bright and airy home. The Old Post Office is an interesting mix of contemporary and traditional cottage style and has been renovated to bring together the best of both and to provide a lovely home as opposed to a holiday let.
Attached to the house is a one bedroomed annexe flat with separate entrance and patio area. This is available for rent throughout the year. Large parties or families spanning the generations, may be interested in renting the house and annexe together.
