About the property
A SUPERBLY PRESENTED SEMI-DETACHED AND NEWLY THATCHED COTTAGE THAT HAS SYMPATHETICALLY BEEN EXTENDED WITHIN A CONTEMPORARY STYLE
This stunning and beautifully presented home is situated within the heart of Milton Abbas, a picturesque village that benefits from local amenities to include post office, farm shop, doctor's surgery as well as The Hambro Arms public house.
The history of the village goes back to the 18th centuary, when Joseph Damer, Lord Milton, the first Earl of Dorchester and owner of Milton Abbey, decided that the adjacent market town, Middleton, was disturbing his vision of rural peace. He commissioned architect Sir William Chambers and landscape gardener Capability Brown (both of whom had already worked on the Abbey building and grounds) to design a new village, Milton Abbas, in a wooded valley to the south of the Abbey.
The property is an 18th century grade II listed cottage built from cob under a thatched roof and was extended in 2002. The property now offers all the amenities of a fully renovated high quality home together with charm and character of a historic building.
Internally, the cottage sympathetically blends the contemporary designed extension that offers particularly bright and spacious accommodation with the cosy sitting room with feature window seat, inglenook fireplace and bread oven as well as the adjacent study/snug and master bedroom suite that features an impressive en-suite bathroom and dressing area, all set within the original cob cottage.
The property is accessed at the side via stable door into an open plan reception hall. This features a glass ceiling and attractive front aspect window and leads into the impressive and spacious kitchen which offers fitted Rayburn and appliances to include: feature ceramic hob set within central island as well as integrated oven and dishwasher.
Whist a traditional staircase offers access to the master bedroom suite within the original cottage and a further inter connecting door leads into the remaining first floor accommodation a spiral staircase also provides access from the dining area onto the feature first floor landing. This has French doors opening onto a service balcony. Bedroom three also features French doors that give access over bridging into the rear garden as well as a mezzanine.
Externally there is a large rear garden with raised lawn and decked terraces, leading into woodland. There is also a garden store, potting and tool shed with water and power. To the front there is a private courtyard as well as off road parking for three vehicles.
