About this property

  • Originally the village forge with adjoining blacksmith's cottage, this charming family home dates to circa 1650 and is bursting with character, steeped in the history from its previous working life. The entrance hall, a later addition, connects the forge with the cottage. Period fireplaces, beams, and slate, stone and quarry tiled floors feature throughout.

    The present owners have retained the old forge including bellows, workbench, anvil and vice, all still in situ, and repurposed this space into a characterful room. The kitchen, with inglenook fireplace, has painted units beneath granite worktops. Appliances include a Mercury range cooker, Siemens microwave, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and two integrated Liebherr drawer fridges. The dining room lies just beyond. The sitting room has a vaulted beamed ceiling and original fireplace with wood burner within.

    There is large room currently used as a home office with floor and base cupboards creating two workstations and desks. A spiral staircase rises to a mezzanine, originally the hayloft. French doors open to a lovely garden room built by highly regarded Prime Oak.

    The cellar with barrel ceiling has been converted to a useful utility room. There is also a shower room and cloakroom to the ground floor.

    There are three bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes, and a family bathroom to the first floor. The second floor has a bedroom and teenagers' den.

    The large, pretty garden has mature hedging to its borders ensuring privacy. There is a wooden studio, gazebo, pond and large terrace. To the front is a spacious gravel drive, lockable garage and car port with storage above and to the side. There is a five-bar gate access to the rear garden and also a working well.
