Full description

Spacious detached cottage offering tremendous potential to extend or incorporate part of the Old Forge into the existing accommodation (subject to the necessary consents). Both the kitchen and shower room have been recently re-fitted and the house offers some delightful period features, together with some double glazing.  Although reputed to be some 350 years old, it is not listed and therefore, one would be able to work on the property without the tie of Heritage regulations.  No onward chain.
