Property Description

Forge House is a modern individual detached house, extended and much improved and offering generously proportioned and beautifully presented accommodation, with potential for a roof space conversion (subject to planning) and set within mature and private gardens and grounds. The property occupies a tranquil country lane position, close to the village green, set back and screened from the road, with lovely views over paddocks and countryside beyond. The current owner has transformed the house with a program of expansion and full refurbishment, resulting in exceptionally well-proportioned accommodation, all finished to exacting standards throughout.

The accommodation comprises a spacious reception hall with engineered oak flooring, stairs rising to first floor with storage cupboard under, and a cloakroom/wc just off. The dual aspect bay windowed sitting room is an elegantly proportioned room with French doors to the garden and a feature open fireplace with decorative Adams style sandstone surround. There are two further reception rooms plus a home office which offers a great deal of flexibility to the ground floor accommodation. The heart of this beautiful home is the generously proportioned kitchen/dining/family room, with French doors to garden and two roof lights, affording this room an excellent level of natural light. The kitchen area has been fitted with bespoke solid oak cabinetry, including hand crafted pantry and larder cupboards, ample silestone composite work surfaces with matching central preparation island, with inset one and a half sink unit with mixer tap, boiling water tap and bevelled drainer. There is a range of integral Neff appliances including a ceramic hob, double oven, extractor and dishwasher, all complemented by a beautiful porcelain flooring with heating under. The porcelain flooring and underfloor heating extend into the inner hallway with a shower/utility room off and a large family room, which could easily be re-arranged to accommodate self-contained living space.

Upstairs, off the half galleried landing are four good sized double bedrooms, including a large master suite with luxury bathroom, and a family bathroom.

Outside, the gardens of about 0.29 acres have been skilfully and thoughtfully landscaped. The front garden is well screened by hedging with an expansive gravelled driveway providing parking for multiple vehicles and leads to the double length cart lodge, which incorporates a garden store. A traditional five bar gate to the side provides access to the generous rear garden, laid to manicured and shaped lawns, bordered by well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds and complemented by a selection of mature specimen trees and bushes. A beautiful, paved terrace incorporates a tranquil water feature, making this a wonderful al fresco dining/summer evening entertaining space. All enjoys maximum levels of privacy and seclusion with views over paddocks and countryside beyond.

Thriplow is justifiably one of South Cambridgeshire’s most eagerly sought after villages located in a delightfully rural environment surrounded by open undulating countryside yet only 8 miles south of Cambridge and 6 miles north of Royston. The village is home to a highly regarded primary school and pre-school, pub and shop and hosts the Thriplow Daffodil Weekend annually. The elevated church, village green and cricket pitch make Thriplow a wonderfully picturesque place to live.
