    About this property

    • The Forge is an impressive contemporary detached property
      individually designed by award winning residential architects
      PCKO with a particular emphasis on natural light, space and
      energy efficiency. It has been constructed with a high
      specification and fine attention to craftsmanship and detail
      including oak flooring and timber double glazed windows, and in
      the case of the first floor some reversible for ease of cleaning. The largest windows are equipped with electrically operated blinds.

      The property wraps around a landscaped courtyard entrance
      providing a wonderful first impression on arrival with six sets of
      french doors opening onto the courtyard for both relaxation and entertaining.

      The main entrance door opens on to the stunning reception hall, double height and vaulted with the bespoke oak and glass
      staircase rising to the galleried landing. Double doors lead to the large drawing room which has a wood burner and the dining/family room, flooded by natural light from four automated velux skylights in the vaulted ceiling. As mentioned both receptions have french doors onto the courtyard. Optional sliding doors from the dining room open onto the bespoke Lumina kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of sleek high gloss floor units with white quartz worktops. There is a central breakfast island with a contrasting grey leather matt finish worktop. Integrated AEG appliances comprise two conventional and two steam ovens, induction hob, extractor hood, and fridge plus a Miele dishwasher. There is a connected pantry/utility room with another laundry room adjacent to the downstairs cloakroom, off the hall.

      The first floor galleried landing with the continuation of the oak handrail and glass balustrade overlooks the reception hall below and provides access over a ‘bridge' to two bedrooms. The spacious main bedroom has an en suite dressing room and luxurious bathroom with an en suite shower room to bedroom two plus a family bathroom, all well appointed with Duravit sanitary ware, Porcelanosa tiles, Kaldewei steel enamel baths and Hans Grohe and Geberit fittings. The outside space has been beautifully landscaped for ease of maintenance with the
      courtyard area previously maintained and designed for relaxation and al fresco entertaining. A driveway and large garage provide secure off road parking.
