Forge Cottage, The Street, Lynsted
A charming Grade ll Listed period cottage with generous accommodation and much character including many exposed beams and timbers, with a walled garden and a large garage which was previously the old forge. The cottage is situated in the heart of the Conservation Area in this delightful village.
Furthermore, the property has undergone an extensive yet sympathetic programme of refurbishment in recent years. Works included some reroofing, damp proofing the entire ground floor, new and repaired joinery, rewiring, new plumbing and a new central heating system, a new kitchen, utility room and bathrooms, redecoration, repair and restoration.
The front door opens into a spacious reception hall with wide exposed floorboards, exposed beams, a wood burning stove with a brick hearth and a useful cloakroom.
To the left of the hallway is a spectacular dual aspect sitting room with a wealth of exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and access to a cellar.
To the right is a wonderful open plan kitchen and dining room with two sets of French doors to the garden. The kitchen has an excellent range of fitted units set around solid oak work surfaces, integrated appliances, a twin Belfast sink and a central island and breakfast bar.
The kitchen is complemented by a large utility/laundry room, whilst the generous living accommodation is completed by a pleasant family room with a glazed door to the garden, which could also serve as a ground floor bedroom (if required).
On the first floor, a long, beamed landing leads to four bedrooms and a well appointed family bathroom with a stylish and contemporary white suite. The master bedroom is a wonderfully light and airy room with an en suite shower room and lovely views over the garden.
The rear garden measures approx. 77 ft x 62 ft and is mainly walled and laid to lawn and beautifully planted with a wide variety of mature trees including a lovely old silver birch tree.
To the right of the property is the old forge which now serves as a useful garage/workshop with double doors to The Street.
