We are pleased to offer to the market this unique opportunity to purchase the freehold and business of a post office with family home attached, conveniently located at the end of West Road, Stanley, Durham. The post office is still open and running as usual, and is located at the front of the property on the ground floor. Full fixtures and fittings are to be included in the sale of the business, and accounts can be made available upon serious enquiry. To the rear of the property is a three storey house, which should be viewed to be appreciated; the house has three bedrooms currently, but also has easy potential for the attic space to be converted into a fourth bedroom. There is also massive potential to extend the shop backwards, as the property extends very far back on the street. The property also benefits from having a new roof fitted in 2018.
