Forge Cottage was originally purchased by the current owners approximately 35 years ago and latterly bought the adjoining cottage to make one large family home. The originally cottage is constructed of attractive ragstone elevations under a tiled roof. The property is accessed to the front by pedestrian access and to the rear by a private driveway owned by the neighbouring property which the owners have a right of way over to access the garage and small area of garden. Gates lead to the larger formal garden and a further garage and the most attractive gardens are split into two sections, one being a kitchen garden and the other having a range of fruit trees and outbuildings/sheds. The property is accessed via entrance porch leading to entrance hall. There are two good sized living rooms along with spacious dining room and inner hallway/study. In addition, on the ground floor there is kitchen and utility/cloakroom. There are two separate staircases, one giving access to two bedrooms and a bathroom and the second giving access to a large third bedroom. The property has PV solar panels to the roof, many character features and must be seen to be fully appreciated.
