OPEN TO OFFERS. A delightful detached three bedroom character home with substantial gardens, parking and car port set within the heart of a most sought after village.
EPC Band G.

The Old Forge is an attractive period cottage and former forge believed to have been built in the late 18th century and has local stone elevations under a clay tiled roof. The property is deceptively spacious with a welcoming entrance hallway providing access to the heart of the home being the well proportioned sitting/dining room. This room has an array of features including exposed beams and an open fireplace with stone hearth, and is dual aspect with doors onto the sun terrace and gardens. Moving from the sitting room an inner hallway provides access to a cloakroom and a charming farm house style kitchen/breakfast room benefiting from character flagstone flooring and an Inglenook fireplace with an oil fired two oven Aga. The fitted kitchen benefits from a range of base and wall mounted units with four ring electric hob and sink and drainer unit. The kitchen is of a generous size with ample space for a breakfast/dining table and an additional space is provided in the utility area with further base and wall units together with plumbing for white goods and a useful walk-in shower room. The first floor is spacious with a landing providing access to two bedrooms of double proportions and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom is accessed via a further door opening to a galleried landing. The bedroom with high ceilings and exposed beams has wonderful views over the rear gardens and benefits from an adjacent shower room.

The Old Forge lies just to the centre of the charming village of Corton Denham in the outstanding rolling countryside that lies between the Corton Ridge and Cadbury Castle, one of the possible sites of Arthur’s flourishing Camelot. There is a church, a village hall and a popular local public house to the centre of Corton Denham while the village is conveniently placed midway between the A303 to the north and the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil to the south. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many good walks to be had from the house itself both on to the Corton Ridge towards Sherborne and up to Cadbury Castle itself. The region is well known for its schools which include the Sherborne Schools, the Bruton Schools, Millfield and St Antony's Leweston. Transport links are good with main line stations at Sherborne and Castle Cary linking directly with London Waterloo and London Paddington respectively while road links are along the A303 joined nearby at South Cadbury giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

Approaching The Old Forge via the quiet village lane ease of access is provided to a generous gravelled parking area and double car port. The rear garden is accessed from both sides of the property and upon entering the rear garden it is immediately apparent the garden is private and of a southerly orientation. The rear garden is split into two main sections, the first section, immediately adjacent to the cottage comprised a paved path and sun terrace with steps rising to the garden laid to lawn with mature hedge boundaries. The second section of garden located to the side of the cottage provides a secret escape with level lawn surrounded by high hedging, a super area for children to play or to relax and unwind.

Mains water, electric and drainage. Oil fired central heating and Aga.
