EPC rating D
The Old Forge Works is an attractive Period barn conversion, formerly an old forge, more recently a photographic development and printing plant before the property was purchased and converted by the current owner.
The house has been well cared for, with the outside having just been painted. The accommodation is primarily open plan, with the front door providing access to the sitting/dining room with window to front, a faux fireplace, stone tiled flooring and open stairs to the first floor. To one corner is a hallway providing access to a boiler room, and ample space for coat racks.
To one corner is a large 'secure room' with metal backed door, forming very useful storage.
Beyond the sitting/dining room is a large kitchen/breakfast/family room. This is the older, timbered part of the house, with exposed beams, stone tiled flooring and window to front. The kitchen area comprises a range of cupboards and drawers, with units to two walls and an island unit, sink, cooker and space for further appliances.
The rest of the room is open, with built in shelving, and openings to useful utility rooms, both with further cupboards and worktops, and both with Velux windows.
From one of the utility rooms is a shower room, with walk-in shower and basin unit, part tiled walls and towel rail. Off the other is an enclosed cloakroom, with WC and basin.
The first floor comprises an open plan landing area, with vaulted ceilings, window to side, store cupboard and door to the bathroom comprising a white suite with a WC, basin, bath with shower over, part tiled walls, towel rail and velux window.
There are two enormous bedrooms, both vaulted, with the one to the front enjoying large windows to front and side, high level beams, faux fireplace an timbered flooring. The rear bedroom has windows to front and velux windows to rear, exposed timbers and beams. There is a lot of scope to enclose these bedrooms, form en-suites, or alter the layout completely to form more rooms, if required.
The property enjoys a very contemporary feel, being so open plan, yet still retains its huge charm and character that one would expect from an older style property.
Outside, there is on road parking and access is to the side of the house, and although there is no private garden, there are footpaths and parks within a few hundred yards of the front door. It offers huge potential to anyone looking for a 'pied a terre', as it has one door to the outside and very little maintenance requirements.
The property is located just a few yards from the nearest shops along the Sparrows Green Road, within easy reach of Wadhurst which is a very pretty and characterful village with a pretty predominantly period High Street in an area of outstanding natural beauty which has much to offer. Wadhurst also offers Churches of various denominations within a good and strong community.
From a social point of view there are many choices to be made from Period Inns, Gastro Pubs, Restaurants, Cafes, an art gallery and many other Societies and Clubs. From a shopping perspective there can be found a very good and newly opened local supermarket, a family run butchers shop, greengrocer, chemist, delicatessen, two banks, library and very well stocked and traditional Post Office and Book shop.
Wadhurst also benefits from a very good local Doctors Practice and Dentists. There is an excellent choice of education, Nurseries, Primary Schools through to secondary schools for both boys and girls in both the private and state sectors. Main line rail station to London in just over an hour.
