This “charming” home for sale is full of character features and dates back more than 150 years. 

The Post House, in Gorsley, was built in the 1850s with locally-sourced Gorsley stone, and has since been sympathetically extended. 

Entering the property, there is a hall leading to a dining area and kitchen which could be made into an open plan space, and comes with a range cooker and features oak floors, a wood burner, and a stable door to the patio.
