The Property

The Old Smithy, a brick and stone building with a slate covered roof was originally a working Forge. It has been refurbished and remodelled, with a wonderful zinc roof on the rendered section. This provides a very unusual kitchen/dining/family room with exceptional natural light. The flexible accommodation is split level and can accommodate a ground floor bedroom if required, utilising the study, which has an adjacent shower room.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a generous hall with travertine flooring. Leading off are a shower room and a study. From the hall, stairs lead to a bedroom over with a en suite shower, while a short flight of stairs lead down to the magnificent kitchen/dining/family room. This has a part vaulted ceiling with roof lights and a polished concrete floor. There are all the usual built in appliances and a glazed gable-end with double doors onto the terrace. A plant and utility room lead off the kitchen area. Above, approached from a galleried landing over, are two further bedrooms, both with en suite showers.


Twin gates lead to a tarmac drive leading past the property to a large parking and turning area at the rear. There is a small lawn and gravelled area adjacent the entrance. A large sandstone terrace adjoins the house providing an ideal alfresco dining or entertaining space. At the far end a bar gate gives access over the river and onto a neighbours property, who have a vehicular right of way down the drive. This is rarely used, only several times a year for garden maintenance, and normally by prior appointment.


Mains water, gas and electric. Private drainage system. The gas boiler in the plant room provides underfloor heating to the ground floor with radiators upstairs. Council Tax Band G - £3,239.16 payable for 2019/20. EPC rating Band C - 78. Full report available on our website or paper copy on request.
