Dating back more than 300 years, The Smithy is a most attractive, deceptively spacious 3 bedroom property which has been significantly enhanced by the current owners to create a delightful and very comfortable contemporary home full of charm and character. Within the grounds is Stables Cottage, a pretty 2/3 bedroom self catering cottage which is operated as a successful holiday let.

Accessed separately, the two properties enjoy complete privacy and their own distinct areas of the garden - a stunning wildlife habitat, with its delightful mix of woodland, mature trees, lawns, orchard and burns. The garden has been designed very much with wildlife in mind and attracts pine martens, otters, badgers and numerous species of bird which can be observed playing and feeding. In addition to the principle garden and situated across the road, is a further large area of mixed woodland extending to approximately 3.5 acres. The area can be accessed via a network of boardwalks and bridges which guide you through an idyllic wilderness of plants, trees and wildlife.

The Smithy, which has been extended in the past, has benefited from substantial investment over the years including a Harvey Jones kitchen with Aga, new windows, refurbished bathrooms, bespoke Neville Johnson master bedroom and some recent redecoration. The Stables, which can be let for 10 months of the year, has also benefited from enhancement with a wood burner and full redecoration and is being offered with the option for sale fully furnished if required. Both properties have also been re-painted. Externally there are a number of outbuildings including a double garage with further parking area for use by both properties.
