The property is brimming with character and there are many original features including exposed beams, beautiful ironwork and a charming inglenook fireplace with a small loveseat either side.

The main house comprises an entrance porch and hallway entered via a wooden stable door, living room with inglenook fireplace, country style kitchen, which could easily be opened to the dining room, utility room, orangery, study/ground floor bedroom, family bathroom and three/four first floor bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room. There are also two detached annexes both providing separate living space that would be ideal for teenagers, elderly relatives or on-site staff.

Furthermore, there are several outbuildings, which are currently being used for a home-based business and could be used for a multitude of things.

The Old Forge is located on the fringes of St Albans and effortlessly combines a peaceful private setting with the convenience of being close to the amenities of St Albans and Hatfield.
