Old Cobley House is a charming Grade II listed Yeoman's farmhouse, set in beautiful gardens in the New Forest village of Emery Down. The property has three bedrooms and retains a wealth of period features and high ceilings, and also benefits from a one bedroom barn conversion which the current owners use very successfully for letting via Airbnb.

On the ground floor of the main house, there is a welcoming dining hall with an impressive original inglenook fireplace, now fitted with a Clearview woodburning stove, plus a cosy sitting room again with inglenook with a hidden entrance to the cellar beneath. The beautiful kitchen/living room provides an attractive, 24ft living space, with a well-equipped kitchen, hand made units and an Aga. Space for table and chairs. Pantry with belfast sink.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, including the master with its en suite shower room, plus a family bathroom.

The separate barn conversion is beautifully converted and provides delightful further accommodation, with a grand sitting room, fireplace with Clearview woodburner, vaulted ceiling displaying the wonderful original timber beams of the structure, a kitchen, a cloakroom and a bedroom on the mezzanine level, fitted with a roll-top bathtub. A variety of antique leaded stained glass windows.

Emery Down is a small village clustered around a hilltop overlooking Swan Green and Lyndhurst, which is approximately one and a half miles to the southeast. The village has a church, village hall and a pub recommended for its good food. Ponies wander through its lanes, and the surrounding New Forest offers plenty of superb walking, riding and cycling routes. Lyndhurst shopping centre is close by and Southampton, with its bustling centre, excellent shopping and choice of restaurants, cafés and bars, is just eight miles away. Despite its pretty countryside location, Emery Down is well connected by road, with the M27 just two miles away, and Ashurst or Brockenhurst mainline station, four miles away, providing services to London Waterloo.

The property is set in a splendid well stocked garden (which has won horticultural awards), surrounded by the stunning countryside of the New Forest National Park. There is a driveway leading to the large garage, which provides parking space and a workshop. This building was previously the old cow shed which could form another conversion subject to PP. The gardens are arranged with rolling lawns, terraced areas and a wealth of established shrubs and mature trees, helping to create a thoroughly pleasant environment in which to relax. Attractive thatched open folly for outdoor dining.
