    About this property

    • Nestled within the idyllic village of Ockley, 2 Forge Cottages stands as a captivating representation of historical significance and architectural elegance. This substantial Grade II listed property, originally a fusion of three cottages beautifully converted into a single dwelling in the 1980s, seamlessly marries period charm with modern design.

      Ascend to the first and second floors, and you'll discover six double bedrooms, each providing charming views across the front village green. Two well-appointed bathrooms add a touch of luxury to the upper levels.

      The meticulously maintained grounds, about 0.62 acres, offer a haven of tranquillity and seclusion. A south easterly facing rear terrace becomes an ideal setting for outdoor entertaining and leads to an expanse of lawn area with numerous specimen trees and shrubs. Charming period outbuildings, including an external laundry room, storage facilities, a WC, and a delightful art studio, enhance the property's character.

      A course shingle driveway welcomes you with generous parking for multiple vehicles, leading to a single garage. The front garden is adorned with mature hedging, creating a private sanctuary. An immaculate lawn area, enclosed by attractive estate fencing, further contributes to the property's visual appeal. Additionally, a right-of-way driveway grants access to a double detached garage at the rear of the garden.
