The Forge at Eardiston is a charming former blacksmiths cottage thought to date from circa 1820 and situated in this desirable rural village within a generous plot on the edge of open countryside.
The village lies between Great Witley and Tenbury Wells in the heart of the Teme Valley amidst beautiful countryside. The riverside market town of Tenbury Wells, approx 7 miles away, has a good range of shops and amenities plus secondary schooling, whilst there is a primary school at the nearby village of Lindridge and local shops closer to hand at Abberley and Clows Top.
The Forge is a hugely appealing character cottage occupying a generous plot with sweeping gravel driveway offering extensive parking for numerous vehicles and affording a golden opportunity to add a substantial side extension subject to planning consent.
Having being carefully renovated by the present owner whilst retaining its considerable charm and character together with various period features, the accommodation features high pitched timbered ceilings to the first floor which also incorporates a mezzanine loft storage space.
There are three good bedrooms and bathroom with corner bath, low level wc, vanity unit with hand basin and cubicle with Triton T80 Electric Shower.
The living room to the front has a wonderful open Inglenook Fireplace with Nordpeis log burner on flagged hearth, part exposed brickwork, beams to ceiling and split stable door to front elevation.
The lounge leads on to a central room or snug with Villager Log Burner in brick fireplace, further exposed timbers, ample space for a dining table and chairs and is arranged in open plan to the spacious kitchen.
Featuring oak flooring with a range of pale cream wall and base cabinets and solid beech work surfaces, the kitchen has a "Flavel" range cooker with electric oven and five ring gas hob, Hotpoint dishwasher, concealed Hotpoint washer/dryer, integrated under counter fridge and freezer, sliding double glazed doors to the rear patio and split stable type door leading through to the excellent side conservatory.
The conservatory is of uPVC double glazed construction over a brick base with tiled floor. Double doors open out to the rear patio which overlooks a large ornamental pond and water feature.
The property benefits from a generous plot with plenty of space to the front and left side where the boundary is demarked by a seasonal small stream fed by rain water from the surrounding hills.
Mains electricity and water are connected with drainage to a private storage tank and LPG gas supply for cooking and central heating. UPVC double glazed windows are fitted throughout.
Of undoubted interest to prospective purchasers wishing to find a property where two families could live in close proximity, there is a superb building plot sited to the rear of The Forge with consent for the erection of a new detached bungalow having independent access drive and occupying a delightful position looking onto neighbouring fields.
Equally the plot makes a good investment opportunity or alternatively could provide ideal space for anyone wishing to work from home and requiring potential office / studio space etc.
The permitted drawings show a most attractive "Border Oak" oak-framed croft style property of 69 sq.m (742 sq ft) to feature a spacious open plan lounge and kitchen area with double doors out to patio area plus study, two bedrooms, bathroom and en-suite shower room. The new dwelling will provide drainage to a septic tank or BioDisc filtration system.
Essentially the planning consent allows the existing workshop/store to be demolished and replaced with a detached single storey dwelling, set back slightly from the position of the existing structure and benefiting from a separate driveway to The Forge. As part of the planning consent for the new bungalow, the existing vehicular access to the front of The Forge will be blocked off and will then serve the new bungalow only. A new access drive will need to be constructed for The Forge.
The drive to the new bungalow incorporates a public footpath leading past the new dwelling into open countryside therefore the location is highly desirable and scenic, with country walks literally on the door step. The owners of the neighbouring fields also have a right of access over the driveway.
Planning permission was gained on appeal dated 6th October following the original application to Malvern Hills District Council dated 26th October 2015 reference 15/01562/FUL.
Please note the building plot is being offered as an exclusive option for the purchasers of The Forge and is not available to be purchased on its own.
