A charming detached period former Blacksmith's cottage and forge in a village setting surrounded by beautiful countryside. EPC Band G.


White Cottage is a charming detached period former Blacksmith's cottage and forge in the country village of Melplash. It is estimated to date back over 200 years and has main walls of solid stone, colour washed rendered under a Roman tiled roof. The property has a fascinating history, being originally a Blacksmiths cottage and forge for the village. It is believed the forge closed in the early 1900s.

It has been under the current ownership since 1994 and over the long ownership, the cottage has been subject to extensive refurbishment and alteration. Modern amenities include a fitted kitchen with electric oven and electric hob, bathroom with corner bath and separate shower and UPVC sealed unit windows/doors.

Character style features include feature beams and a stone feature fireplace with wood burner (flue not installed), together with flagstone flooring and stable bricks to the former forge which is now the garage/workshop.

Briefly the accommodation extends to:

Ground floor entrance lobby, reception hall, living room, kitchen.

First floor landing, utility, two bedrooms, inner landing/occasional third bedroom, bathroom/shower room.


The cottage has a small driveway with parking for two cars, leading to a very large integral garage/workshop which offers excellent potential for conversion to provide additional accommodation. To the rear, there is a courtyard with store and beyond, steep terraced gardens.
