About this property

  • Forge House is a very pretty detached Grade II listed property dating in part from the mid 18th century with weatherboard and brick elevations and set within attractive enclosed gardens that back onto a neighbouring field.

    This attractive, well presented home is situated along a no through road in the Conservation Area of the village of Shadoxhurst, where there is a 13th century church, public house and village hall. The nearby villages of Kingsnorth and Woodchurch (3.3 miles and 3.5 miles respectively) have more everyday shops and amenities and village primary schools.

    Arranged over three floors, the accommodation comprises a triple aspect sitting room with French doors opening to the garden and a dining/family room with oak flooring. Both rooms feature exposed beams, wood burning stoves and enjoy a southerly outlook over the pretty front garden.

    The modern fitted kitchen with quartz work surfaces, has various appliances including a dual fuel Rangemaster, an integral dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The adjoining utility room offers additional storage and access to a larder, a rear hall and through to the garage.

    There are four first floor bedrooms, three with wardrobe cupboards, together with an en suite bathroom and family shower room fitted with contemporary suites. A staircase leads from bedroom two to a flexible attic study.

    Outside, there is off road parking for two cars and an attached tandem garage.

    A pedestrian gate leads to the pretty front garden with apple trees and a brick path edged by beds planted with lavender, tulips and roses. The lawns stretch around to the rear of the house where there is a mower/implement store.
