The Old Forge comprises a detached four bedroom family sized house with great character and potential. The main original house undoubtedly dates back many years and there are extensions and alterations incorporating the original village blacksmiths shop. A two storey extension and double garage were constructed some 40 years ago. The property is traditionally built with brick and rendered elevations under a 'Mansard' which has been re-roofed. The property stands with frontage to Staythorpe Road and a return frontage to Pinfold Lane with vehicular access. Indeed a handsome and traditionally built house inspired with the arts and crafts 'architectural design'. There is the need for internal modernisation presenting an exciting opportunity for personal input and design.

The accommodation provides on the ground floor a lounge with South facing bay believed to be formally The Old Forge, a sitting room with door through to the conservatory and French windows to the garden, separate dining room and an open plan breakfast room and kitchen area. Ground floor also provides a useful utility room and rear entrance lobby. The first floor provides four good sized bedrooms, master en-suite and family bathroom. Outside there is an open frontage garage, boiler room and a substantial brick built store room. The York stone patio is South facing and there is a very attractive garden area.

The village of Averham is conveniently situated mid way between Newark and Southwell. This charming small village has a primary school and regular bus services. Many commute from this area to Nottingham, Newark and Lincoln. The village has the excellent Manners Sutton primary school, the fine St Michael's early Norman church and unusually the Averham little theatre which hosts professional productions.

There are shopping facilities at both Southwell and Newark. Within three miles at Fiskerton there is a railway station with regular services to Nottingham. The village is convenient for access points to the A1 and A46. Fast mainline trains are capable of journey times from Newark Northgate to London Kings Cross in just over 75 minutes.
