POST OFFICE AND VILLAGE STORE in Deeside for Sale. Set in the historic village of Hawarden stands this picture postcard Post Office and village store. Built in 1907, Hawarden Post Office is the community hub of the village where the former British Prime Minister William Gladstone and his family called home. The Post Office stands proudly at the main crossroads in the heart of the village opposite the famous Hawarden Castle gates and parkland. The village has two castles and the world famous Gladstone Library that attracts thousands of visitors every year, both a short walk away from the Post Office. Located just seven miles west of Chester City, just inside the Welsh border the Post Office has a very strong community hub and following. Hawarden village was voted in the Sunday Times top ten places to live and boasts two pubs, farmshop and several independent businesses as well as a high school and primary school, once again both just a short walk away from the Post Office. The village has potential growth with a very buoyant housing market with planning approved for an extra 300 homes to be built. Only a few miles away is Airbus the largest civil aerospace company in the country employing over 5,000 well paid people - Hawarden is a gateway to many people who work here. Operated on reasonable opening hours and predominantly staff run, there is huge potential for more hands on owner / operator to get more control on wage costs adding to the bottom line profit.
