Formerly two wychert cottages dating back some 300 years, Forge Cottage has been comprehensively re-modelled, extended and refurbished in more recent years to provide a fabulous village home presented in immaculate order. The original house has been extended to provide a ground floor bedroom/study enjoying a wonderful outlook over the mature garden, this in turn provides the option of a ground floor bedroom suite served by the adjoining shower room. This modern section of the property is linked to the original cottage by a stunning part glazed reception hall, providing a wonderful welcome and flows into the dining room. Of particular note is the generous sitting room extending to an impressive 23’ in length with exposed beams to the ceiling and an inglenook fireplace incorporating a wood burning stove. Further accommodation to the ground floor includes a classic kitchen/ breakfast room fitted with a range of handmade, bespoke cream fronted units and a traditional Belfast sink. Integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer and water softener. The kitchen and utility room with stable door both open out to the garden with a private terrace area ideal for outside entertaining and morning coffee. To the first floor are three bedrooms and a family shower room, including an attractive master bedroom with a range of built in wardrobes. This room has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a lovely outlook over the garden.
Outside, the property is accessed via a pedestrian gate opening to a private courtyard, currently an attractive area with flowering pots and a bistro table. Further gated access opens into the most beautiful mature garden bordered by a renowned Haddenham wychert wall. The garden extends to a maximum of 85’ in length and is well stocked with herbaceous borders, including a selection of well established fruit trees. A pretty path laid in old stock bricks and flagstones extends the length of the garden, guiding you to the lovely detached summer house positioned at the foot of the garden next to the cheminee barbecue area. The summer house has electricity and lighting providing a multitude of uses, including a self-contained home office. A detached pitched roof double garage is also located to the bottom of the garden. It has built in cupboards, a Belfast sink and is accessed via a personnel door with further twin electric doors opening directly onto Rosemary Lane. In our opinion Forge Cottage is the most gorgeous period home, beautifully presented throughout and offering imaginatively landscaped gardens. Tucked away within a quiet setting on one the best regarded village lanes which is just a short walk to Haddenham & Thame Parkway for access into London.
