THE PROPERTY

A beautiful Grade II Listed property presented to the highest possible specifications on the edge of this popular village Potential to acquire an additional 8.34 acres of land by separate negotiation Tucked away on the edge of this delightful village, first glimpses of The Old Forge are most impressive with its very attractive faade constructed of local cut Ham stone with stone mullion windows. Justifiably Grade II Listed of architectural and historical importance, the property has recently undergone a very clever program of works and is now presented to the highest possible specifications. Part of the charm of the property is the perfect juxtaposition of old and new with many period features still in place but with all the modern conveniences. The kitchen is a charming with views over the delightful garden and grounds and with a good number of wall and base units incorporating a professional six ring oven. Alongside the kitchen is a fantastic dining room, again with lovely views over the gardens and grounds. The sitting room, with its very attractive Ham stone fireplace, is also worth a special mention as it really is a beautiful room which leads into the recently converted double garage that could be used for a number of purposes including a large games/playroom or home office. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor with three bedrooms in total including a large master bedroom and first floor sitting room/study situated alongside the master bedroom boasting absolutely stunning views of the garden and open countryside beyond. The walled garden is an absolute delight and has been lovingly and very cleverly nurtured over the years with a lawned area and paved terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. There is also a vegetable area and many places to sit on a nice summer's day. There are a number of outbuildings including a wooden shed, a garden office and large utility room. There is also off-road parking and with the correct planning permissions in place the property does offer huge flexibility to extend and improve in order to suit any family needs. All in all, this is a truly fantastic family property in an idyllic and yet very convenient location. The rural hamlet of Wigborough comprises a number character houses and cottages and the historic Elizabethan manor house Wigborough Manor with its well-known Polo Club and eventing.
