Originally an old forge comprising two stone buildings, this superior Grade II Listed cottage has been meticulously and sympathetically extended and renovated resulting in an exceptionally fine home with a particular focus on natural light. Situated in a Conservation Area within the picturesque village of Kingston, the exterior reflects the area’s rich architectural history whilst the interior has a feeling of contemporary warmth creating a graceful, relaxed home offering an easy living style with views of the Purbeck Hills and Corfe Castle.

‘The Old Forge’ is a charming character property situated in the heart of one of the most attractive areas in the UK. It is eminently suitable as either a main residence or as an investment and an internal inspection is highly recommended.

The village of Kingston is situated on the Purbeck Ridge above the historic Castle Ruins of Corfe Castle, and sits to the West of the seaside resort of Swanage (5 miles distant) with its fine, safe, sandy beach and the market town of Wareham a similar distance, which has main line rail links to London Waterloo (approx 2.5 hours). Much of the area surrounding the village is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty incorporating the Jurassic Coast, part of the World Heritage Coastline.

The spacious living room welcomes you to ‘The Old Forge’ enjoying views of the Purbeck Hills and Corfe Castle and boasting an array of character features including wood burning stove and a vaulted beamed ceiling. Leading off, the impressive farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room creates the perfect entertaining space and is fitted with an extensive range of light oak units, contrasting worktops and porcelain ‘Butler’ sink.
