IT HAS been a long time since the forge rang to the sound of the hammer and anvil, as it is now used for storage and garaging, with a vehicle inspection pit. The outbuilding comes with the house, known as The Forge, which is a three-bedroom dwelling with more than an acre and a half of gardens. Built in the early 19th century and Grade II listed, it is the first time that the building has been sold on the open market apart from the Highclere Estate, which is five miles from Newbury, in Berkshire. It has a sitting room with open fireplace, dining room with a wood-burning stove in the hearth and a large, spacious kitchen with a beamed ceiling. The guide price is pounds 290,000. Details are available from Strutt & Parker (01635 521707).
