Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is something very special indeed! One of 5 bespoke properties created from the former stabling block for the 19th century Huntsham Court manor this really offers an accessible and practical country home that cleverly combines the architectural heritage of the building itself with a contemporary but respectful interior with all the conveniences of modern living and style.

The property itself in brief comprises of an entrance hall, study, boot room and WC beyond which can be found the main living accommodation. The open plan living space is divided between a highly sociable kitchen/diner resplendent with a bespoke Mark Wilkinson designed cabinets and AGA cooker which our vendors attest to serving well for dinner parties and hosting in general. This then in turn leads into the stunning lounge area with its exposed galleried landing above linking the two bedroom wings and full width and height windows and door overlooking the shared courtyard area. There is the further benefit of a utility room come drying room adjoining the kitchen and to the first floor are three bedrooms including the master suite which benefits from a stylish en suite and further family bathroom.

The Forge benefits from its own private garden, access to the shared courtyard that the conversions surround a shared garage, garden store and off street parking.

Of further note, our vendor rents a paddock from the estate an arrangement which may be transferable if so desired.

A beautifully presented property in a particularly picturesque part of Devon which we see serving well as an accessible rural retreat or stylish family home.


Entrance Hall 3.15 x 1.87

Entered via a wooden door opening into a welcoming and spacious entrance hall.  Travertine tiling to the floor, double glazed traditional style window to the side aspect and double doors open into the kitchen/diner and a further door opens into:

Study 3.62 x 2.33

Double glazed traditional style window to the side aspect creating a natural orientation for a desk to appreciate the green outlook.  Travertine tiling to the floor continues and a set of double door open into the living room.  By virtue of the two sets of double doors from the entrance hall and study leading into to both the kitchen/diner and the living room this creates a natural flow to the downstairs accommodation.  A further door from the study leads into:

Boot Room 1.62 x 2.36

Double glazed traditional style window to the side aspect  and specifically arranged to accommodate outdoor and country pursuits clothing.  Tiling continues and further door leads into:

Downstairs Cloakroom

Kitchen/Breakfast Room 7.35 reducing to 5.10 x 5.27 reducing to 3.37

Dual double glazed traditional style windows to the front aspect overlook the garden and country beyond.  Simply put this is just a super space to cook and socialise given the beautiful design and attention to detail and the space it affords.  Our vendors advise the kitchen/diner and the whole of the ground floors ability to accommodate a considerable amount of guests was one of their main reasons for their original purchase.   The kitchen comprises of a bespoke and extensive range of wall and base units with granite work surfaces designed by Mark Wilkinson and  and incorporates integrated appliances by NEFF.  There is a 1 1/3 stainless steel set beneath the granite work surfaces and the kitchen would not be complete without the AGA cooker.  If you are looking for somewhere to entertain or indeed just a welcoming and warm family kitchen/diner we suspect you will not be disappointed by this space.  The travertine tiling from the entrance hall continues throughout the kitchen diner until the threshold of the living room is reached and warm rich oak floor begins.   Door leads to:

Utility 2.18 x 1.66

With matching units to that of the kitchen with a stainless steel sink and space for a washing machine this also serves as a drying.

Living Room 7.69 x 5.46

The room has three main focus points.  Firstly the bespoke and beautifully crafted turning staircase which rises to the first floor.  From here a striking architectural feature is revealed as the upstairs incorporates what would otherwise have been eaves spaces and therefore creates a central gallery linking the two bedroom wings.  With oversized French doors which lead out onto a shared courtyard area and further glazing to the majority of the wall floor to ceiling this creates and incredibly spacious, light and bright living room.  Perhaps the main focus to the room though is the ingenious and contemporary wood burner that swivel allowing its warmth to to distributed where desired,  The living room benefits from wooden flooring throughout and double doors back into the study.


Stairs rise to a central and open gallery landing which links the two bedroom wings and benefits from a velux window.  To the right can be found:
