A beautifully situated Grade II Listed Farmhouse, together with two holiday lets, range of modern and traditional outbuildings with alternative use potential (STP), woodland and pasture land, in all about 23.45 acres.

Coursley Farm is a fine example of a 15th century cross passage hall house which is well worthy of it's Grade II Listed status, with fine inglenook fireplaces, flagstone flooring and pretty leaded windows. The current owners have tastefully renovated the property which has highly flexible reception space and two delightful sitting rooms with open fireplaces. A linked walkway gives access to a stunning kitchen/dining room with vaulted ceilings and recently fitted kitchen with a number of integral appliances and underfloor heating. A snug/bedroom four can also be found in the main house, together with downstairs bathroom, cloakroom and utility room concluding the ground floor accommodation.

Stairs from either reception room rise up to the first floor where there are three bedrooms, with the master enjoying an en-suite wet room and a family bathroom.

The property is situated at the end of a no through road and is approached over a private gravel driveway which leads to a car parking and turning area in front of the house. The drive continues to the farm buildings and holiday cottages and also gives access to the farmland. The gardens associated with the house adjoin on three sides and are mainly lawned with well established hedgerows and herbaceous borders. A sun terrace adjoins the linked walkway, enjoying a Southerly outlook, ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. Below the house is a small stream with the potential to create a water feature if you so wished.

Situated to the West of the Farmhouse are two highly specked and popular holiday lets which have been converted from a former coach house, both in excellent order and each providing two bedroom living accommodation.
