A well-situated period cottage offering highly adaptable accommodation set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In all about 2.673 acres. Believed to date back to around 1820, The Old Smithy offers highly adaptable accommodation. Obviously as its name suggests, The Old Smithy served the surrounding Hamlet and villages. Particularly good reception space includes original sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove with a lovely picture window enjoying glorious outlooks up to the hills. A study area which has French doors out into the garden, a dining room and a large north-facing studio which could easily double up as another sitting room or home office. A kitchen breakfast room is well-fitted and has an Aga and is arranged on two levels. A ground floor guest bedroom suite would also be ideal for an elderly relative if so wished. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, the principal bedroom being at the rear of the house particularly spacious and having an en-suite bathroom. The Old Smithy is found along a quiet country lane and has two five bar gates leading into a gravelled drive also providing ample parking. A detached double garage has remotely operated up and over doors - light in power. From the drive the gates also lead into the two paddocks which are gently sloping down to the north and are well hedged. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn with a variety of flower beds, shrubberies and include a timber garden chalet set on the northern boundary and enjoys all available sunshine. A further terrace lies to the west with a small lawned area and extends to a kitchen garden. In all the gardens and grounds amount to 1.386 acres (0.561 hectares).
