Forthay is quietly situated in the small rural hamlet of Forthay, less than a mile from the village of North Nibley in a beautiful semi- wooded valley at the foot of the Cotswold Hills escarpment in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Forthay is a very pretty detached period farmhouse believed to date back to the late 17th Century with more recent additions. The house is Grade II Listed and the accommodation, which is beautifully presented, is arranged over 3 floors with a cellar below and extends to just over 4,000 sq ft in total. A glazed link has recently been built to connect the main house to a substantial stone outbuilding, which has been converted to an office/playroom on the ground floor and a games room above. Part of this outbuilding still provides garaging but could potentially be converted to provide additional living space subject to obtaining the relevant consents. The house is full of period charm and care has been taken to preserve many of the original features including some original stone mullion windows and timber framed stud walls, fireplaces, a bread oven and exposed beams. A drive leads off a lane and sweeps round to a parking area and in front of the garage. The garden lies mainly to the front of and is south westerly facing. It is subdivided by the drive and the area closest to the house is principally laid to lawn. There is further lawned area, a play area and a vegetable garden. The garden is enclosed by mature hedging and has a fine beech tree.
