Another historic property in the village of Comberford is on the market. According to this week’s edition of the Tamworth Herald, the Coach House, Comberford, is on the market through the Tamworth estate agents, Taylor Cole, with an asking price of £650,000.

The Tamworth Herald report says the Coach House dates back 300 or 400 years, which means it was built while the Comberford family was still living at Comberford Hall.

In recent months, I have written about the sale of Comberford Hall, the sale of Comberford Hall Cottage, and the closure of Saint Mary’s and Saint George’s Church, Comberford, with uncertainty hanging over the future of the village church.

The Coach House is an impressive, five-bedroom residence beside Comberford Hall. It is in a secluded location in Comberford, north of Tamworth and east of Lichfield. Access is through the private road that leads to Comberford Hall. Electric wrought iron gates lead to a sweeping driveway laid to Cotswold stone chippings.

The garden at the front of the house has a neat lawn and mature trees. Behind the house, there are superb views over the open Staffordshire countryside.

The reception hall has UPVC oak flooring, coving to ceiling, the staircase leading to the first floor landing, and doors leading to a guest cloakroom.

The Family/Dining Room measures 17′ 6″ (5.33 m) x 16′ 6″ (5.03 m). It has oak flooring, a bay window to the front elevation, and steps leading to the lounge. The lounge, which measures 28′ 8″ (8.74 m) (into bay) x 15′ 10″ (4.83 m)., has an inglenook fireplace and windows looking out to the front and side and rear of the house.

The Farmhouse Kitchen/Diner measures 24′ 4″ (7.42m) x 20′ 11″ (6.38 m) (maximum) and 15′ 8″ (4.78m) (minimum) also has French doors leading out to the garden patio.

On the first floor, there is a Master Bedroom Suite, four other bedrooms, and a family bathroom.

Outside, the garden has a large paved patio, raised timber decked patio with balustrade and garden gazebo incorporating lighting, canopy over the rear French doors, and a lawned area bordered by mature trees. There is detached double garage, and a separate log cabin.

Taylor Cole have been advised that this property is freehold, although prospective buyers are advised to verify this with their solicitor.
