A unique opportunity to acquire this Grade II Listed Medieval Hall House believed to date back to circa 1375 with outline planning permission granted to convert the Forge into living accommodation.

This Grade II Listed Medieval Hall House, believed to date back to circa 1375, provides a residential property and part commercial space which now has outline planning permission granted by Braintree District Council under application no 14/01327/FUL to create a sizeable family home. It is conveniently located in a conservation area just 0.2 miles from Witham's mainline railway station and nearby River Walk.

From the entrance door you lead into the open plan kitchen dining room. The dining area features an Inglenook fireplace with solid wood bressumer and the kitchen with a range cooker. A further half glazed door leads into the utility/lobby room and door leading out to rear courtyard. In addition there is a large storage cupboard in the kitchen beneath the stairs and a further door gives access to the stairway leading to the first floor.

Located on the first floor are three bedrooms. Bedroom two and three are sub-divided by a studwork wall which could be easily removed to recreate the original large double room. The sitting room features a vaulted beamed ceiling and open fireplace, with a door leading into a study. If the Forge were to be converted there is potential to make a fabulous master bedroom with the study space becoming a walk in dressing room or perhaps en-suite (subject to the relevant consents). A wall mounted gas fire central heating boiler is located on the landing providing central heating via radiators to the current living accommodation.

The Forge is divided into three sections. The original Blacksmiths Forge features two forge fires. The Farrier shoeing/workshop area has double doors which lead out into courtyard garden and double doors to the side of the property. There is also an adjoining storage/workshop. Outline planning was granted by Braintree District Council under application no 14/01327/FUL giving consent for this space to be converted into a sitting room and garage/workshop.

There is off street parking to the front and side of the property. The courtyard garden is mainly laid to hard landscaping with wrought iron railings and steps leading down to utility room door. There is also an outside W.C.
