Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Forge is an individual five bedroom detached house situated off a quiet lane in the favoured village of Charlton Musgrove. In previous years the property was extended adding a large self contained annexe providing a wonderful family home with versatile living accommodation. The property is set in just over half an acre of gardens with a generous lawned area, small copse, useful outbuildings, parking for several vehicles and a delightful outlook over adjoining fields. There is also a large conservatory, attached double garage, double glazed windows and oil fired central heating. Although the property would benefit from some updating there is so much scope to create a home to your own taste and style.
