Offering For Sale this absolutely stunning, extended stone cottage to the open market. "The Old Forge" represents the lucky new owner's with the opportunity to live in a historic, locally renowned former black smiths home. The original cottage dates back some 200 years and was the black smith for the Craigantlet Hills area in the days when horses and carts were the primary means of transport.
The property was completely renovated and heavily extended in the 1990's by a previous owner, and has been further renovated by its current vendor's to a very exacting and high specification. The property has been extremely well known over the years, more so famous for it's turret in the extension, which houses a gorgeous Sandstone spiral staircase providing access to the master bedroom on the first floor.
Although the property has all the mod cons, thankfully most of it's original features, character and charm have been retained including the vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, thick stone walls, Bangor blue slate roof and the smooth plaster exterior walls.
Holding three good sized bedrooms within, the property has a fabulous open plan luxury kitchen in French Walnut units and African Black Granite work surfaces which is completely open to the dining area and lounge which has a Cream wood burning stove and exposed stone wall, a large utility room, brand new luxury bathroom (installed April 2019), and feature Sandstone spiral staircase.
Externally the subject property rests on Circa 0.5 acres of well tended gardens to front, side and rear, with lawns, private timber deck area, large paved patio and large gravel drive with two bay car port and plenty of parking. In addition there is a good sized outbuilding which houses three stables and a separate tack room with a secluded area laid in grass and could be suitable for a number of different uses. This area also has Full Planning Permission Granted to build a Three bedroom cottage style detached home. LA06/2015/0622/F.
