Full description

Nestled behind a private gated entrance and a screen of mature trees is this charming Grade II listed 16th century cottage, which is set on a fantastic 0.75 acre plot and is divided into spectacular individual gardens with a paddock opposite the main house. The property is brimming with character and there are many original features including exposed beams, beautiful ironwork and a charming inglenook fireplace with a small loveseat either side.

The main house comprises an entrance porch and hallway entered via a wooden stable door, living room with inglenook fireplace, country style kitchen, which could easily be opened to the dining room, utility room, orangery, study/ground floor bedroom, family bathroom and three/four first floor bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room. There are also two detached annexes both providing separate living space that would be ideal for teenagers, elderly relatives or on-site staff. Furthermore, there are several outbuildings, including the Old Forge , which are currently being used for a home-based business and could be used for a multitude of things.

The Old Forge is located on the fringes of St Albans and effortlessly combines a peaceful private setting with the convenience of being close to the amenities of St Albans and Hatfield. The historic City Centre of St Albans is situated within 4 miles of the property and provides many boutique shops, restaurants and an excellent bi-weekly market. The district is also renowned for its strong selection of schools in both the private and state sectors. Connections are excellent by both road and rail with fast nonstop trains running from St Albans City Station to Kings Cross in 18 minutes, reaching Moorgate/Farringdon in 22 minutes and Blackfriars/City Thameslink in 28 minutes, and from Hatfield there is a 30-minute service to the West End via Finsbury Park.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a period property with a wealth of history, set within wonderful mature grounds and surrounded by open countryside.
