A charming and beautifully presented extended village cottage within the heart of a highly desirable village, with garage and ample parking.
The Old Forge is a stunning Grade II Listed attached period property with red brick and tile-hung elevations under a tiled roof offering beautifully presented characterful and versatile accommodation, with many character features.
The bright terracotta tiled reception hall with its stairway rising to the first floor opens to a trio of reception rooms within the original home, a tranquil snug/music room with a log-burning stove, 23 ft. multi-aspect sitting room with a striking brick-built open fireplace and exposed timbers and a family room with feature fireplace flowing into the further accommodation. From here is a utility, laundry room and a well-appointed kitchen with a range of contemporary wall and base cabinetry with wooden worksurfaces, a butler sink and various integrated appliances. The space opens out into the generous and light-filled dining room with its bespoke fitted cabinetry, electric stove and pretty garden views and access via wide bi-folding doors. Completing the floor is a modern shower room.
The first floor with its rustic exposed beams and latched doors houses four well-proportioned and elegant bedrooms with fine features and some in-keeping fitted wardrobes, which are well served by a family bathroom with an elevated freestanding rolltop bath and an equally stylish contemporary shower room.
The property enjoys parking via a separate detached garage and tarmac driveway, with the main home approached via a white picket gate opening to an original red-brick pathway flanked via a range of lush mature trees, hedging, lawn and borders. The rear garden is carefully landscaped, with sunken and raised sun terraces, stocked lavender planters, level lawn interspersed with various trees and colourful shrubbery, a greenhouse, vegetable plot and a tranquil decorative pond with circular paved surround, ideal for alfresco entertaining.
Sought-after Barcombe has a village shop with a Post Office, tennis club, popular public house, church and access to a plethora of countryside walks and rides along the River Ouse. Cooksbridge has a mainline railway station with fast London links, whilst Nearby historic Lewes on the edge of the South Downs National Park offers a more comprehensive range of shops, supermarkets, educational facilities, restaurants and hospitals.
