The Forge is a newly constructed property cleverly designed to echo the village forge that previously occupied the site. The original forge-stone is still in situ within the boundary at the front of the house as a subtle reminder of the land's history. The exterior of The Forge is part clad in Larch which will provide a silvery patina over time, with a standing seam Zinc and hand-made peg tile roof above. This just completed property is turn key ready and offers versatile living space ideal for families, downsizers and guests. Internally it is neutrally decorated throughout with under floor heating on the ground floor and en suites.

The rear garden comprises a small area of lawn and a curved jetty style decked area set adjacent to a large neighbouring pond.
