Located in the picturesque village of Tirley is this wonderful three-bedroom, detached former forge house dating back to the 1600’s. The White House has been extended at the rear by the current owners but still retains plenty of period features and charm throughout. Boasting a detached garage and driveway, this gorgeous house was previously owned by a family who had this property in their family for three generations.
Tirley is a parish village on the west side of the River Severn, is four miles from Tewkesbury and approximately six miles north of Gloucester. The Severn is crossed at Tirley by the Haw Bridge, which replaced an earlier ferry crossing. Roughly a 20-minute drive from the popular town of Cheltenham, Tirley is considered a Cotswold hidden gem.
