A wealth of character, four bedrooms and Church Spire views for sale with this individual village home
3rd April 2019
New to the market: Offered with no upward chain and set within the highly regarded John Taylor School catchment is this beautifully presented character cottage, benefitting from a wealth of character and space throughout, four good sized bedrooms and an idyllic position within the sought after village of Newborough. Enjoying views over the village church to the front, Forge Cottage originally dates back to the mid 1700s and has been extended and refurbished to a high specification over the years.
The deceptively spacious interiors showcase a wealth of character and comprise briefly galleried reception hall, three reception rooms, refitted kitchen, utility and cloakroom to the ground floor, with four bedrooms (three doubles) set off the first floor landing serviced by a master en suite and family bathroom. Outside, a detached garage benefits from a room above ideal as a home office, studio or for conversion into an Annexe, and a well tended south facing cottage garden lies to the side and rear benefitting from a high degree of privacy.
The popular village of Newborough is home to an array of facilities including a stunning church, the Red Lion pub and restaurant, the Riverside Park play area and The Needwood Primary School which feeds into John Taylor High School in Barton under Needwood. Local villages providing further amenities are within easy reach, with Yoxall just four miles away where a Butchers, convenience store and further country pubs can all be found. For leisure pursuits, Hoar Cross Hall Hotel and Spa and the FA’s St Georges Park with onsite gym, spa and restaurant are both a short drive away and cricket and ramblers clubs meet within the village itself. The Cathedral City of Lichfield has two train stations providing direct links to Birmingham, London and Stafford and the International airports of Birmingham and East Midlands are both within an easy drive from Newborough.
