3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

A detached and recently updated character cottage with good sized rooms and pretty garden near the middle of this popular village.

Forge Cottage is a detached and delightful cottage originally built in the mid to late 1800s of stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The house has been in the same family for 140 years with extensions in the 1940s, 1985 and the garage was added in 2004. Recently, the property has undergone a programme of updating both internally and externally. The accommodation is light and well presented, having been fully redecorated, a private drive has been installed and there are newly laid paths around the cottage.

There is a brick and stone porch with a retiled floor and a door opens into the sitting room. This excellent and sizeable room has a smokeless fuel burning stove. An arch leads to a family room or play room with patio doors to outside and there is a rear hall / boot room with door to outside. The main hall is a good size with a staircase to the first floor and at the other end a ground floor shower room.

The kitchen / dining room has plenty of space for a table and has a good range of wall mounted and floor standing units with solid oak doors and granite worktops, with the utility room beyond having space and plumbing for a washing machine and a door to outside.

On the first floor there is an airing cupboard, three good double bedrooms, with bedroom one having built in wardrobes and a family bathroom.

The property is approached from Weston Street through a five-bar painted wooden gate onto a smart new private drive bordered by brick walls and timber fencing with ample parking and a garage with an up and over remotely controlled door, power and light. A newly laid path leads around the house with the attractive garden being slightly elevated at the front, partly bordered by timber fencing, with a lawn, some trees and pretty flower and shrub borders.

Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property. Oil fired central heating system.
