Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully renovated detached period cottage in the heart of Southam enjoying a wonderful outlook towards the surrounding hills offered for sale with no onward chain

Forge Cottage is an attractive period home which has been comprehensively renovated in recent years with great care and attention to detail. Approached via an impressive lobby with feature roof over-hang, leading into a hall with staircase to first floor and oak doors into the main reception rooms. The sitting room is well balanced with a gas stove from Chesneys and the dining/family room is similarly proportioned with a brick open fireplace, door to utility and an opening leading into the kitchen/breakfast room. Refitted with stylish Shaker style units, a large Belfast sink, granite worktops and integrated appliances, the kitchen has bi-fold doors connecting with the outside providing a perfect vantage point to enjoy the garden from. There is also a shower room (off the utility room) and large store room with a lower ceiling height which could potentially be adapted for use as a study/office. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, the master benefiting from a private dressing/TV room, en suite facilities in two of the bedrooms and a family bathroom. Gravelled and paved driveways provide parking for 3/4 cars and an attached garage has an electric door. Facing south, the gardens are a particularly fine feature of this home, planted with a variety of trees and shrubs, whilst tiered lawns and patio/seating areas provide great interest and a beautiful aspect across the village towards surrounding countryside. Forge Cottage is offered for sale with no onward chain.

Set along an idyllic village lane in the heart of Southam, with open views and nearby Cotswold walks at the foot of Cleeve Hill. There is an excellent range of amenities approximately 1 mile away in Prestbury village whilst Cheltenham town centre is about 3 miles away.
