Detached Property For Sale in Hillmorton, Rugby.
Dating back over 400 years, this detached property is one of the oldest buildings in the village area of Hillmorton.
Before Rugby spread to the east, Hillmorton was a village in its own right with a market held there. Remnants of the Old Village Green still remain and this is where The Old Forge can be found.
For most of the 19th Century the Hewitt family (who occupied the property) were blacksmiths with the forge in the eastern part of the property. In later years the forge area was replaced by a grocers shop up until the 1970’s.
‘The Old Forge’ is now a lovely family home offering a wealth of character and charm with a large south-facing garden. Along with the two bedroom Annexe / double garage, it offers immense potential for families amalgamating or anyone who runs a business from home.
The Annexe would make a fabulous “granny annexe” or would be ideal if you have a business that requires treatment or meeting rooms.
Being detached from the main house and with off-road parking, it gives privacy and also has its own front door.
The property is located 2.5 miles from Rugby Station and with London Euston less than an hour away by train, it is great for commuters!
Hillmorton is also catchment for various ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted Schools. Rugby offers access to a prestigious grammar school stream as well as the Famous Rugby School itself.
The current custodians of ‘The Old Forge’ have had many happy times with family and friends celebrating various occasions and gathering in the lovely grounds.
The property has a lovely welcoming feel and is perfect for socialising with its open-plan living space and French doors to the garden – the whole space is utilised here.
The main reception room with its beautiful flagstone flooring and Inglenook fireplace is stunning and sets the standard of the rest of the home.
Exposed beams and timbers are seen throughout the property. The vaulted ceiling in the kitchen area really adds to the character.
On the first floor, three double bedrooms and a luxurious family bathroom can be found.
The master bedroom replicates the vaulted ceilings of downstairs and the second bedroom has access to an amazing loft space area which could be transformed into something pretty spectacular – take a look!
Double gates to the side give access to secure off-road parking, ideal if you have a caravan or motor-home.
A paved patio in the courtyard area is bathed in sun all day long, right through until the sun sets in the evening making it perfect for dining ‘Al-Fresco’.
With a vast expanse of lawn, this garden is great for children. In fact both children learned to ride their bikes in the safety of the large gardens.
This property is steeped with history and the epitome of a family home with considerable potential, all in a highly desirable area.
If you would like to know more about this property or the area please call Campbells and speak to anyone of the team.
