About the property

SPACIOUS DETACHED GRADE II LISTED COTTAGE IN SOUGHT AFTER PICTURESQUE VILLAGE OFFERED WITH NO ONWARD CHAIN, POTENTIAL FOR AN ANNEX AND PLANNING GRANTED TO TURN INTO TWO SEPARATE COTTAGES

The charming and picturesque village of Milton Abbas is historically important due to its connections to the magnificent Abbey, Capability Brown and the Hambro Family. The history of this village stretches back more than a 1,000 years, the earliest mention of Milton appears in 934 during the reign of King Athelstan who founded the church which was then converted to the Abbey.

The village is serviced by The Hambro Arms, Church, Post Office and Village Store, Farm Shop and Doctors Surgery.

More extensive shopping, business and recreational facilities are available in the Georgian Market Town of Blandford Forum and the County Town of Dorchester.

The area is served by a number of excellent schools both in the public and private sectors including Milton Abbey, Bryanston, Clayesmore, Knighton House, Hanford, the Sherborne Schools, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Leweston, Port Regis, Sandroyd and Canford.

Train services run from Wareham and Poole to London Waterloo. Dorchetser also has a mainline to London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads.

Originally built as two semi-detached homes in the late 18th century, this charming cob and thatched cottage, has potential to have an annex or convert back to two cottages.

On the ground floor is a country-style kitchen/breakfast room which has a wide range of storage cupboards, a pantry cupboard and two separate sinks. There is a built-in dishwasher and range style cooker. Space for further appliances can be found in the utility room.

The property boasts five reception rooms, creating versatile living space and all these rooms have unique charming features. The family room which was a later rear extension is particularly spacious and bright space with a central roof lantern skylight. French doors open out onto the side patio.

At the front of the property are two separate reception rooms with inglenook fireplaces with beautiful bressumer beams. One of which has an open fireplace and the other room has a wood burner. The two further reception rooms have been utilised as a study and a formal dining room. In addition, the ground floor has a well-appointed bath/shower room with freestanding bath, shower cubicle, pedestal basin and WC.

The first floor provides three double bedrooms and a shower room with pedestal basin, WC and shower cubicle. A second staircase leads into the fourth bedroom. There is a built in storage cupboard and concealed access to loft area.

Externally the property offers two driveways either side of the cottage and to the rear of the property is a large gravelled courtyard. There is also a useful gardeners WC. A winding staircase leads to the rest of the garden which is predominately laid to lawn with mature trees and enjoys spectacular views across Milton Abbas.
