Tucked away behind its arched double gates, Sicklesmere Old Forge offers an exciting opportunity to finish this enchanting vision put into motion by its previous owners. The vision began in 1994 with its change of use from a retail shop to a residential dwelling, followed by plans to build a kitchen extension in 2004 and, most recently, in 2012, further extension and enhancements alongside extra land being purchased to enhance the outside offerings.
The charming private courtyard leads to the entrance door, a substantial entrance fitting for the property's heritage. The accommodation commences with a truly, must be seen to be appreciated, reception room, complete with exposed beams, ornate period style radiators, brickwork floor and stunning spiral staircase. To the opposite side of the room, there is a substantial redbrick fireplace with a log burner and an ornate second staircase gently rising to the first floor. An impressive chandelier, very much in keeping with the forge aesthetic, completes the room nicely.
The ground floor also offers a double bedroom, once again teaming with characterful features including exposed beams and an ornate period radiator. The bathroom has been upgraded to include a crisp white suite with a shower over the bath. The kitchen is currently located at one end of the reception room with plans existing to move the kitchen into the adjoining room. Both staircases lead to potential further bedroom wings.
Heading outside, from the double gates a charming private courtyard can be found with a substantial shed. To the side of the property, additional land was purchased, now offering an enhancement to the garden areas and parking.
