Picture postcard cottage with annexe set in a tranquil and popular rural hamlet.
Forge Cottage is a charming character home with origins dating back to 1580, although not listed. Occupying an idyllic position in the heart of the popular and sought after hamlet of Bowlhead Green, this wonderful property enjoys a countryside location yet benefits from close proximity to the local towns. This well presented cottage with stylish interiors is very much in keeping with the age and the original style of the property.
There is a welcoming entrance hall with the main rooms either side, a guest cloakroom and door to the garden and rear patio. The sitting room features characterful beams and an Inglenook fireplace with a log burning stove and there is an adjoining dining area with doors to the garden. The main reception room leads to a pleasant family room / study with lovely bay window facing the front of the house offering views across the green.
The kitchen / breakfast room is light, and airy with shaker style cupboards, an electric AGA and space for a dining table and an additional seating area. French doors from the kitchen open on to the patio and garden beyond.
On the first floor, the principal bedroom has a lovely double aspect outlook, built-in wardrobes and an en suite with a roll top bath. There are three further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a laundry room and a well appointed family bathroom.
The landscaped, cottage style gardens are delightful, south west facing and wrapping around the house, framed by mature hedging offering privacy and seclusion. There is a sunny stone paved patio leading directly from the dining room and hall, making it ideal for al fresco entertaining.
There is a charming self contained annexe which was originally the local forge, ideal for guests or as a home office. Accommodation comprises kitchen, a reception room, bedroom with vaulted ceiling, study area and a bathroom. There are two stores, one of which is attached to the annexe.
Forge Cottage is set back from the road with views across the village green and beyond. It is approached via a shingle driveway leading to a wooden five bar gate. An ivy clad low brick wall and mature hedging border the property. The drive provides ample parking, along with the open bay car port which sits to the right of house adjacent to the annexe.
