Forge House offers well-presented accommodation arranged over two floors with attractive period features throughout. With a large flat garden, of about 1/2 acre (tbv) and considerable potential for Working From Home it is an appealing property for families relocating in the current cliimate. Ready for a make over, Forge House can become a delightful family home, which includes an annex, home office, or workshop after conversion of the Old Forge (STPP).

The entrance hall leads to a charming sitting room with exposed wooden beams and feature fireplace. A well-proportioned drawing room, accessed via an internal hallway, has a fireplace, beautiful stained-glass windows and French doors opening to a large conservatory with views across the garden. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a generous dining room with fireplace and fitted storage, a good-sized kitchen/breakfast room with fitted units and a Rayburn, an office with external access and a useful cloakroom.

The former shop (once the post office) and the drawing room behind appear to have great potentail to combine into a single room, perhaps as a large family kitchen subject to the necessary consents.

The first floor of the property comprises a generous principal bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bright and well-proportioned bedrooms, and a family bathroom. The property also benefits from a substantial cellar accessed via the kitchen.

The property is set in the picturesque village of Molash, which lies amidst the stunning countryside of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Molash has a local pub, The George Inn (winner of a prestigious food award), a garage and a parish church. A short distance away in Challock, Kings Wood provides excellent opportunities for walking and cycling.

The delightful village of Chilham is close by and is filled with chocolate box Tudor buildings and a Norman castle. The village also has a number of day-to-day amenities, including pubs and cafés, a doctor’s surgery, a well-regarded primary school and a mainline station providing direct services to London St Pancras and Charing Cross.

Nearby Ashford offers a wealth of shops, supermarkets, amenities and leisure facilities, as well as Ashford International station, which provides High Speed train services to London St Pancras from 36 minutes. The M20 provides easy access towards the M25, London and the Kent coast. The area has good travel links to the Continent.

The property offers ample parking on a gravelled driveway leading to the former forge, an interesting and substantial period outbuilding with great potential for adaptation, subject to any necessary consents. This contains one of two garages with a sizeable adjoining workshop and external store room. There is a greenhouse to the rear. The second garage is smaller than the first and is accessed via a gate and paved driveway from the road.

The generous and well maintained rear garden is ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining with a patio and an extensive lawn surrounded by mature trees and shrubs.
