An attractive and substantial Grade II Listed period house providing good family accommodation set in generous gardens. The property was built probably as a small terrace of three cottages in the early 18th Century and, as the name suggests, at that time it was occupied by the blacksmith operating what was then the neighbouring forge. Elevations are coursed flintwork with brick quoins under a high pitched and slated roof. Skilfully converted and with good fenestration, the accommodation is light and spacious with double aspect reception rooms overlooking the pretty gardens. The house and gardens have been carefully maintained by the present owner; a large proportion of windows are secondary double glazed, and there is gas-fired central heating to radiators.


The property is located within the Conservation Area of North Lancing which contains a variety of character and period homes. Lancing Manor cricket club and leisure centre are close by, as is the church of St James the Less, and Mill Road leads directly onto the South Downs with miles of lovely walking country and the beach is just 1.5 miles to the south. Schooling options for all ages are within easy reach.

Situated on the south coast, and adjoining the South Downs National Park to the north. Lancing station (mainline railway with trains to London Victoria, Brighton, Portsmouth, Southampton) is about 1.2 miles away, Worthing 4 miles and Brighton 10 miles. Chichester to the west and Horsham to the north are both approximately 20 miles distant.
