‘Forgeways’ is a large home, with a story. Transformed from an old forge and pair of blacksmith’s cottages dating back to the early 1800’s, the property now blends characterful charm with the space and features you need for comfortable living with five bedrooms, two living rooms, a spacious farmhouse style kitchen, modern bathroom, garage and impressive garden sitting within a highly sought after, protected area of Clipston, one of the areas most popular villages, close to the town of Market Harborough.

As you enter, you're greeted by a warm and inviting hallway having a classic quarry tiled floor which sets the tone for further character features to follow. A window at the back lets in plenty of light and offers a nice view of the garden. On your left, there's a handy cloakroom with downstairs toilet. Leading through to the right side of the property, you'll find a large dining room that opens into the living room through a big archway, both of these spaces originally being the two separate blacksmith’s cottages. Exposed beams and a decorative fireplace / log burner in each room give each space a cozy feel whilst still having plenty of space for large furniture. Additionally natural light floods into each area, with both of the rooms having dual aspect from windows to the front and rear.

The kitchen is designed with a country touch, featuring plenty of storage and wooden countertops. It comes with built-in appliances such a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer, plus a large oven and inset sink. A door and window look out onto the garden, and there are stairs to one corner leading to the next floor. Adding to the character again are exposed brick walls, unique to this room.

Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, with the main bedroom being especially bright and airy also enjoying duel aspect windows to the front and rear. The additional bedrooms offer three more double in size, with the fifth bedroom making an ideal single bedroom or additional office, whilst still being of excellent size. The main bathroom has recently been updated with a modern shower, toilet, and sink with additional storage.

Outside, the garden gets a lot of sun, being south facing and has been landscaped to create a private space to relax with various different areas. There's a paved path and patio area, a raised lawned area, and a hidden decked spot for ideal for outdoor entertaining. The garden is surrounded by well-kept plant borders and mature trees.

To the left of the property there lies a large garage, accessed via huge timber double doors from the front which provide access for a vehicle comfortably. This space leads through to the garage which has plenty of space for storage and could be used as a workshop. It's equipped with electricity, lighting, and plumbing for a washing machine with further storage rooms at the end.
