The beauty of living in a village is that great sense of a tight knit community, and in Hartley Wintney the beating heart of the village is the historic cricket green.The fortunate purchasers of Olde Forge Cottage have a very special and unique home, positioned alongside the historic cricket green; the period property has a vantage point across the green and to the delightful village duck pond. Meaning the new owners can’t miss out when it comes to getting in the spirit of things, be it a cricket match or village event.
The property itself is extraordinary, a wealth of original features are there to be enjoyed, such as ceiling beams, and
in the separate annexe, the original restored brick forge. An exceptional contrasting feature is the highly contemporary and sleek fitted kitchen, bringing the most important modern convenience to this period cottage.
In addition to the heritage that goes with the bricks and mortar the new owners have a piece of village history unfolding in front of them. Hartley Wintney Cricket Club, said to be the oldest cricket club in Hampshire, is renowned for its beautiful grounds which have been in use since 1770 and continue to breed a passion for the game throughout the village and surrounding area.
