Standing on the site of the former village smithy, The Old Forge is a detached village home of generous proportions with well-planned and flexible accommodation. The property is located in the heart of the hugely popular village of Pitton some 4 miles from the cathedral city of Salisbury

Offered for sale in excellent condition The Old Forge is light and airy, fully double glazed and centrally heated via an oil-fired boiler to radiators.

There is a welcoming hallway leading to a generous double aspect sitting room with feature open fireplace, the kitchen is fitted with a range of painted solid wooden units adjoining an open-plan garden room/dining room. In addition there is a superb ground floor bedroom and ensuite with French doors opening into the sunny garden. Originally constructed as an annexe this could easily be additional living space. Off the first floor landing are three excellent bedrooms and a recently refurbished family bathroom.

The Old Forge sits almost centrally within a corner plot with a good sized open front garden laid predominantly to lawn with mature flower beds. Adjacent to the house is a drive and a single garage with excellent loft storage. The rear garden enjoys a southerly aspect and offers a high degree of privacy. There is a generous patio off the kitchen, additional seating area off the sitting room, a good sized lawn and established shrubs and flower beds.

The village of Pitton forms part of the Pitton and Farley Parish which lies some four miles to the east of the cathedral city of Salisbury. Surrounded by rolling countryside the village offers a range of facilities including a general store and Post Office, thriving village hall, sports fields and tennis courts and a well-regarded local Inn, The Silver Plough. The village church, St Peter, in its original form predates Salisbury Cathedral although most of the current structure dates from around 1860. The award winning Pitton Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School, just off the village centre, is hugely popular and extremely well regarded. Neighbouring communities include the villages of Farley, The Winterslows, Tytherley and Firsdown. Salisbury offers a more comprehensive range of recreational amenities, shopping facilities, a historic market and a wide range of schooling, both state and private, including two grammar schools and a college of further education. Salisbury has a mainline railway station, also stopping at Grateley, serving London, Waterloo and the West Country. Although a rural environment, access to the M3 and M25 is easily obtained via the A303 to the north east and to Southampton via the A36/M27 to the south.
