Situated on the outskirts of this popular village, Old Forge is a charming Grade II listed cottage with outline planning permission for a rear extension and is believed to date back to circa 1725. The ground floor is presently arranged as a spacious through sitting room with French doors to the rear, a dining room approached directly from the entrance hall, adjacent to which is the family room/study. To the rear is the kitchen/breakfast room which has extensive views across the garden. The ground floor cloakroom is located between the kitchen and sitting room. The first floor has a master bedroom suite with a raised area leading to an en suite shower room with a dressing room. The remainder of the first floor comprises three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Planning consent has been granted by Maldon District Council (Ref: 14/00699/HOUSE and Ref: 14/00700/LBC) for the construction of a two storey rear extension which would create a larger kitchen/breakfast room and more bedrooms and en suites to the first floor. The grounds extend to approximately 2/3 of an acre and incorporate a double garage, workshop and the original Forge. There is a shingle drive providing parking for several vehicles.

This property has 0.6 acres of land.
