    About this property

    • Forsters is a fine, prominent village property, thought to have been built in the 18th century with natural stone elevations under a pitched slate roof. In recent years the property has undergone complete renovation and now provides a most attractive period home with immaculate, stylish, contemporary and character accommodation. The renovation of the property has been carried out to an excellent level to include full rewiring, replumbing, reroofing and replastering throughout the whole house, new bathrooms, kitchen and utility room.

      Whilst the property is not listed, period features include open fireplaces with wood burning stoves, exposed timbers and there are newly fitted solid oak floors, stunning oak doors and oak architraves throughout most of the house. The property has some particularly good rooms on the ground floor including a substantial kitchen/breakfast room with views over the lawn and countryside beyond and a further large games room with vaulted ceiling ideal for entertaining or perhaps a home fitness suite. On the first floor is a double aspect main bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room and three further bedrooms, two bathrooms all with attractive views over the delightful landscaped gardens. On the second floor there is a converted attic space with additional bedroom, study and spacious sitting room.

      Forsters is approached from a quiet village lane where an impressive stone entrance with wrought iron gates opens onto the attractive private driveway with ample parking both for the main house and access to a triple bay oak framed car port beyond which lies a track leading to the rear of the garden. The gardens at Forsters are delightful with some particularly impressive features including a walled kitchen garden with raised beds, circular timber fruit cage, heritage style greenhouse, brick potting shed and clay oven. Double doors from the kitchen lead out onto a large terrace overlooking the main lawn which is enclosed in part with a stone wall with views beyond to open country. The eastern boundary of the property with a small paddock, is bordered by the river Mangerton. In all the gardens extend to just over one acre.
