The Old Smithy is a delightful grade II listed stone property situated in a prominent position, at the crossroads for the village of Barton-le-Street.

A characterful looking property and once known as the village pub, the current owners have created a superb family home.

There is a sizable sitting room with a part pitched roof, bay window, an inglenook stone fireplace and wood burner. The breakfast room has the original bread oven and fireplace. The well-appointed kitchen has a stable door offering views down to the village green. There are two separate staircases to the first floor offering flexibility to the arrangement of the five bedrooms including a family bathroom.

Outside the kitchen is the west facing garden with raised beds, to the rear of the house is a patio area which faces south west. In addition there is parking to the side and a useful storage cellar below the house.
