The origins of Sanquhar Post Office date back to 1712. It is Grade II Listed and is recognised by the Universal Postal Union (the governing body for Postal Administrations around the globe) and the Guinness Book of Records, as the Oldest Post Office in the World. Today it offers many more services than just Post and Mail and is operated by our vendors who are only the 15th Postmasters in over 300 years!
Post Office income is around £2,000 a month in total. Added to this is a healthy retail income.
A characterful cottage style provides owners accommodation accessed separately from the business. Accommodation comprises: hallway, fully fitted kitchen, bathroom with modern suite, large sitting/dining room, lounge with feature fireplace, two double bedrooms, a boxroom/bedroom 3 and shower room. The home benefits from central heating.
There is a courtyard and a range of outbuildings—all recently refurbished (these were originally the home of the Mail Coaches Horses). These could be converted to either a Coffee Shop with outside tables or even to small holiday lets (subject to planning permission) as there is separate access to the rear. There is a lovely well maintained garden laid mainly to lawn enclosed by a stone wall and to the end of this is the large two storey Sorting Office. This is a stone building that was originally the Old Forge and is now configured over 2 levels with ground floor garage area and first floor sorting office. Both floors have recently been refurbished. It would also lend itself to be converted to a holiday let or similar (subject to planning permission).
