A listed village home, which now combines a cottage and a former forge, has space for the whole family to spread out.
Forge Cottage, Chilmark, near Salisbury, has just come on the market with Woolley & Wallis with a price guide of £650,000.
The cottage is believed to date from the 18th Century while the attached forge was built a century later.
The forge has recently been converted and an extension has also added to the living space.
Ground floor accommodation now includes an entrance hall/dining room, drawing room with study area, sitting, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom with an en-suite, two more bedrooms and a family bedroom. A fourth bedroom and a shower room are on the top level.
The property also comes with plenty of parking, double garage and a workshop both with light and power.
Both the kitchen and drawing room have doors to the south facing back garden.
John Savage from Woolley & Wallis in Salisbury said: “Many of the original features have been kept throughout the cottage including exposed timbers, mullion windows and a particularly attractive inglenook fireplace in the sitting room.
“Forge Cottage is well situated in a picturesque spot near the centre of Chilmark which has a very popular and successful village school and an excellent pub, The Black Dog.
“Chilmark is surrounded by some of the most picturesque countryside in this part of the West Country with excellent walking and riding all around.”
