The Property
The Old Forge comprises an attractive Grade ll listed timber framed house, which is understood to have been constructed in the mid 16th century, under a thatched roof with rendered external elevations. The sitting room is an attractive double aspect room with inglenook fireplace and inset wood burning stove. The dining room has a brick floor and is again an attractive double aspect room. The kitchen/breakfast room has wooden worktops with an inset marble chopping block, stainless steel double sink, drawers and cupboards under, inglenook fireplace with inset Aga, window to the front elevation and door leading into a pantry. There is also a study on the ground floor and window to the front elevation. The bathroom has a panelled bath, with wash basin set into a vanity unit and tiled shower cubicle. On the first floor the master bedroom is an extremely attractive double aspect room with vaulted ceiling and en-suite shower room with tiled shower cubicle, pedestal wash basin and WC. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, both of which are double aspect rooms. The house is heavily beamed throughout.

AGENTS NOTE: The property is heavily beamed and as a consequence there is restricted head height in some of the ground floor rooms and we recommend potential viewers take this into consideration before viewing.

The property is approached via a five bar timber gate which leads to a parking area to the rear of the house. The former 'Wheelwright's' barn has been converted in recent years to provide a useful self contained annexe comprising a sitting/dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the property and are predominantly arranged to the rear of the house, are mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders, stocked with a variety of flowering shrubs, a pond with waterfall water feature and several mature trees. The gardens and grounds are enclosed predominantly by hedging, offering a good degree of privacy and benefit from attractive views over the common which lies to the front of the house.

From Diss take the A140 through to Yaxley and into Mellis. Cross the railway line and pass MultiYork on your left hand side. The Old Forge can be found on your right hand side (the only pink cottage on the green) and opposite the football pitch.

Vacant possession of the freehold will be given upon completion.
