The house has been meticulously maintained and improved by the present owners over a prolonged period of time and offers superbly presented family accommodation that is extremely versatile and ideal for family life.
The scheme of improvement works at the property through the years have combined modernisation with a tasteful and sympathetic approach. The resulting property is a truly splendid family home that oozes charm and character throughout. The accommodation opens with an entrance hall that has a flagstone floor. Off the entrance hall are stairs rising to the first floor and to the right is a very spacious living room with a delightful stone fireplace acting as its focal point. The formal dining room is again generously proportioned, has views to the rear and is warmed by a wood burning stove. The ground floor accommodation is particularly versatile due to a third separate reception room that has views to the side and the rear and provides a useful space suitable for a variety of different purposes. The farmhouse style breakfast kitchen has ample space for table and chairs, fitted with a beautiful Aga and has a aspect over the mezzanine study.

The ground floor accommodation is completed by a cloakroom and a further large entrance porch to the front.
At first floor level the highlight is the master bedroom. The bedroom is of a very generous size and has an ensuite bathroom that has been luxuriously appointed to a truly superb standard. The bathroom has as its focal point a large free standing bath and the area as a whole represents the very best in modern day design and finish. There are three further good size bedrooms and a sympathetically appointed and designed shower room complete with high quality shower. Over the kitchen and access via a separate staircase is the mezzanine study area, this can be used for a variety of different purposes and could even be used as an occasional bedroom if required.

Forest House sits in grounds extending to approximately half an acre with ample parking and turning space to the front and landscaped gardens predominantly to the side. The views to the rear over Delamere Forest and Primrose Wood are outstanding whilst the gardens as a whole afford high levels of seclusion and privacy.
