The property has characterful accommodation extending to approximately 2,224 sq ft over two main floors with an attic storey over the end of the Georgian part. The two parts are joined by a modern, glazed vaulted hallway with access on to a paved courtyard at the centre of the property. The former forge is now a characterful living/ dining space with the original hearth and bellows still in place and a slate floor. The rustic kitchen is situated beyond this part with a secondary staircase to the first floor and door out to the side. The Georgian side of the house includes a light and well proportioned sitting room with open fireplace, sash windows and terracotta pamments to the floor.

      At first floor level there are four bedrooms including a main bedroom with an en suite shower room off, and a fifth bedroom or dressing room above. The remaining three bedrooms and family bathroom are approached from both the vaulted landing and the secondary staircase from the kitchen end of the rear wing.

      To the front of the property there is a deep pavement on which the current owner parks a car and to the rear of the building accessed via Willow Walk is a single garage with up and over door.

      The internal courtyard is a fascinating space with space for a table and chairs and light from above with planting and log store.
