The Forge stands on the corner of Low Street and High Street in the small and popular village of Thornton-le-Clay. The property, constructed of brick under pantile is beautifully presented and has spacious 5 bedroom accommodation with a reception hall, 2 good reception rooms, a study and a large country kitchen with Aga. The guest bedroom is accessed by a separate, private staircase and has its own bathroom. The Forge is a traditional village house which has been sympathetically renovated with beamed ceilings, Yorkshire sliding sash windows, flag floors and woodburning stoves in the Drawing Room and Sitting Room. The modern bathrooms and stylish Kitchen complete the picture. The principal garden is to the south and is lawned with mature trees, shrubs, hedges and borders and facing east there is a delightful ‘courtyard’ garden. There are double gates into the principal garden which could be used for vehicular access and further parking and where (subject to planning) a garage could be erected. To the side there is a pretty Kitchen garden with vegetable beds and fruit trees which is rented from the Parish Council.

Thornton-le-Clay lies in open countryside almost midway between York and Malton. The village has a primary school and is very accessible from the A64 (about 2 miles away) giving good access to the east coast, York and Leeds. York Station is only 12 miles away and from where London can be reached in under 2 Hours. Thornton-le-Clay is on the southern edge of the Howardian Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and is close to Castle Howard.
