Property Description

DESCRIPTION A historic house in the heart of the village and conservation area with a wealth of character, beautifully renovated to a very high standard and winner of the Sussex Heritage Award.

Forge House is a deceptively, spacious property, which has played a fascinating and important part in the history of Church Street since the 16th Century. Skilfully restored to its Victorian proportions, with the addition of modern features for 21st Century living, it stands alone as a unique home.

On entering Forge House through the cloakroom porchway, you are greeted by a stunning, double-height galleried hallway, with Victorian floor tiles and a glass door to the kitchen/diner, drawing your eye to the late 16th Century beams and a view through to the magnificent garden beyond.

There are two large reception rooms to the front of the property, each with engineered oak flooring , underfloor heating and a wood burning stove. The high decorative ceilings give a delightful feeling of space.

At the rear of the property is a warm, light and airy kitchen with a range of Harvey Jones fitted units, a central island with breakfast bar and a large dining area. There is a useful walk in pantry, a sizeable utility room, boiler/airing room, downstairs cloakroom and a boot room, which leads to a charming side patio area and a gate to the street. The kitchen too has underfloor heating and bifold patio doors leading to a beautiful terraced patio and the garden beyond.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms including the master bedroom and large en-suite bathroom, bedroom 2 with dressing room, a family bathroom with a large walk-in shower and a sizeable guest bedroom. The further bedroom is currently used as a study.
