Chance to create a dream home.

This detached Grade II listed farmhouse in need of substantial repair and refurbishment but the end result could be a beautiful country property surrounded by four and half acres of land.

Horsley House Farm is in Norton Curlieu Lane near Warwick.

Thought to date from around 1650, it is built of brick and half-timbered elevations, part rendered beneath a pitched tiled roof.

Currently the property is divided into two houses but these could be combined to form one spacious residence together with an extensive range of agricultural buildings that offer development potential (subject to the necessary planning consents).

It occupies an elevated rural location, approximately two miles west of Warwick town centre, with far-reaching views over the Warwickshire countryside.

Property one has an entrance hall with cloakroom off, a living room with bay window and open ?replace, and a kitchen/breakfast with exposed beam and quarry tiled ?oor.

On the ?rst ?oor there are two bedrooms and stairs to an attic bedroom with exposed purlin and far-reaching views.

The second property has a back porch with cloakroom and toilet off, and an inner hall with ?agstone/quarry tiled ?oor.

The living room has a brick ?replace with hardwood surround and built-in cupboards to either side, and access to a wood store with external hatch.

A kitchen has an old solid fuel Rayburn and a utility area.

On the ?rst ?oor there is a built-in cupboard, doors to two bedrooms - one with half-timbered walls - the other with exposed beams, and a shower room with shower, basin and toilet.

Up on the top ?oor, there is an attic bedroom.

Outside there are garages and gardens that lie mainly to the front and side of the farmhouse.

There is a substantial detached brick and tiled traditional farm building with three loose boxes, loft area and open-fronted section to the paddock side with internal loose boxes. Attached to this traditional building is a timber lean-to.

There is also a more modern steel framed farm building and another timber framed lean-to.

To the front of these buildings is an enclosed concrete yard area.

There is a Dutch barn and a detached traditional brick and tiled building with open-front and two loose boxes.

Pasture paddocks to the front and side of the house provide grazing. The land to the north-east of the farm buildings will be sown to spring corn, the farmer will have a right of holdover to harvest the crop and the land will be left in stubble.

The property is conveniently placed for access to the M40 motorway at Junction 15. Warwick Parkway Station is a short distance away with regular services to Birmingham and London.

Birmingham City Centre, NEC and Birmingham International Airport are all approximately 20 miles away.

The farm is for sale by public auction on May 21 with a guide price of PS600,000.
