4 bedroom house for sale in 43 Common Road, Claygate, KT10

An intriguing property, having been occupied continuously by three generations of the same family since 1896. Believed to have originally been built circa 1850 - 1860 as a much smaller cottage with an adjoining workshop, quite possibly as a tied cottage for the use of the Claygate Brickfields Manager and then from 1896 as a Blacksmith’s forge, used often at the time for shoeing Lord Foley’s horses. The last occupying family members, having previously been tenants for some 60 years, bought the Forge in April 1957 and effectively doubled the size of it in 1961.

‘The Forge’ is a really quite unique detached home with gardens to two sides and provides a perfect platform for the next generation of owners to put their own stamp on it. It needs updating throughout but is also perfectly ‘liveable’ for the time being. The existing accommodation is simply arranged across two floors with a spacious entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, study and kitchen with four bedrooms (3 doubles), a family bathroom and a generous landing completing the picture. Externally, there are enclosed gardens on two sides with an expanse of lawn, a sunny patio area, and an adjacent garage with a driveway.

‘The Forge’ is ideally located on Common Road, with transport links on the road and the nearest train station less than a mile away. This provides useful links to neighbouring villages and towns and a convenient commute to London in around 30 minutes. Claygate is situated in a convenient location for the A3 and M25, as well as popular state and private schools. For those wishing to seek green spaces, Claygate is fortunate to have Telegraph Hill on its doorstep, as well as nearby public heaths and woodland areas.
