Property description

Nestled in the heart of the highly sought after village of Chilmark is Forge Cottage, an exceptional Grade II listed residence that is believed to date back to the 1700's in its original part, with the Forge itself being added at a later date. The home has been transformed in recent times by later additions, including a sizeable rear extension and the complete refurbishment and renovation of the forge itself, now an integral part of this charming home.

This lovely home boasts a wealth of light, well balanced accommodation with many original features still evident, most notably beautiful exposed timbers, original mullion windows and a stunning inglenook fireplace.

The ample accommodation is both well balanced and deceptively spacious. Upon entering the home you are greeted by the superb entrance/dining hall. This room in turn gives way to the principal reception rooms and the stairs to above. To your left is the super sitting room, ideal for winters evening enjoying the inglenook fireplace. To the rear is the sizeable kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining utility room. This lovely room is of recent construction and is well appointed with ample space for a breakfast table and French door leading to the rear terrace and garden. The ground floor accommodation is completed by the Forge, a truly glorious room with vaulted ceiling and rebuilt wood burning stove. Whilst this room has been almost entirely re built, the character and age is still evident inside and out. The original barn doors are still in place externally for roadside aesthetics. This versatile space is currently used as a drawing room with vast glazed French doors and windows offering views over the rear garden. The far end has been cleverly converted into an excellent home office.

Upstairs, on the first floor there are three generous bedrooms. The master bedroom is beautifully presented and has a modern en-suite. The remaining bedrooms are serviced by a well appointed family bathroom. There is then a further sizeable double bedroom on the second floor with a shower room.

This super home is beautifully presented throughout and offers a wealth of living and sleeping accommodation that must be seen to be appreciated.

The gardens are to the rear and have been beautifully landscaped. There is a paved terrace abutting the rear of the home with steps leading to the mature lawn. The lawn is flanked by colourful, established floral and herbaceous borders and beds with an impressive Grecian urn water feature.
