House with a fully functioning post office for $405,000
Consider this offer signed, sealed and delivered.
A 2,000-square-foot home in Paeonian Springs, Virginia, has an advantage that many modern Americans would covet: the simple ability to never, ever miss a shipment.
That’s because the house has a fully functioning post office.
Priced at $405,000, the three-bedroom, one-bathroom Cape Cod-style property comes with an “income-producing” twist, the listing says.
“The side of the house is leased to the USPS, which is currently on lease, and has been for decades,” the property notes, adding that any potential buyers looking to break the decades-long lease with the Post Office have that option also.
Standing on a “quiet established street,” the home first listed for sale in January for $465,000. Five months later, it received a $60,000 price cut and has since been contracted.
Built in 1930, this is the first time in nearly 30 years that the property has come on the market.

It didn’t take long for the house to go viral on Facebook, with many excited about the idea of living there – not just because it had a post office nearby.
“So sweet and simple… I sat on the porch and waved to everyone,” said a user named Melanie Lemen Swope.
“A good way to meet your neighbors,” added a user named Patti Pierce Burns.
Susan Stevenson commented, “I love this and would love to live next to or with a post office.”
“This is what we needed. Neither of us would ever have been late to work this way,” Alicia Spivey joked.
