    About this property

    • Believed to have been built in 1947, Forrigan is an imposing detached property, sat on a roughly 3.5 acre plot in a
      secluded wooded area. The property has been significantly
      renovated and redeveloped in recent years and provides more
      than 4,000 square feet of accommodation, with stylish décor and high quality, modern fittings throughout.
      Downstairs, an open entrance hallways in the centre of the
      house is notable for a wide bespoke, wooden staircase as well as leading into a dining, family room and a very sizable living room, running along the majority of the back of the house at nearly 36 feet wide. The living room enjoys good views of the rear garden, looking up towards the woods with bi-folding doors leading out onto the vast patio terraced area. At the far end is a door through to an impressively sized kitchen with a prominent central island as well as plenty of space for a sofa seating area and more everyday, informal dining. It is appointed with all the necessary appliances, double ovens, induction hob, warming drawer, wine fridge, dishwasher and a recessed area to fit an American style fridge / freezer. In addition, there is a combination of double doors and bi-fold doors, all leading onto the patio terrace. Off the kitchen is a utility room, downstairs toilet and side entrance.
      Upstairs on the 1st floor are four double bedrooms, of which the principal enjoys a small balcony with bi-folding doors over looking the garden and woods. It's also served by an en suite, complete with a brushed steel roll-top bath and currently has direct access to a neighbouring bedroom should you desire to create a very spacious dressing room. Along the hallway which leads to bedroom two, there is a door which opens out onto a
      balconied roof terrace with space for a table and chairs.
      Bedroom two has the benefit of a dressing room and en suite.
      The first floor is completed with a very grand family bathroom
      containing an imposing shower and stand alone bath. The
      second floor consists of two large double bedrooms, both
      en-suite, making up total of six bedrooms.

      At the front of the property there is a block-paved "In and Out" driveway, which is further complimented by a large
      screened, gravel parking area behind the garage to keep the
      driveway clear. In addition to the double garage is a
      generous workshop.
      The majority of the immediate rear of the house is a expansive paved terrace, with brick retaining wall, perfect for
      outdoor dining and entertaining. Wide, smartly laid, steps with a gentle incline lead up to firstly a lawn level and then further wooden steps which, via a gate, provide access to the woods.
      There is also a tennis court nestled nicely into one corner of the grounds, topped with a pretty spectator pavilion.
      As part of the 2013 planning permission, there were drawings proposing how the current garage and workshop could be demolished and replaced with an attached two storey garage block with a gym / office above or potential
      secondary accommodation.

    Forrigan was built originally by the famous post-war British actor, Alastair Sim. It's now been much extended and finished to a high modern standard but combines this with a quite unique, tranquil woodland setting on a great plot with lovely views from all windows.
