Full description

Period charm at its absolute finest!

Situated in the conservation area of Milton Abbas, this "chocolate box", detached, thatched residence forms part of the village designed by Capability Brown in the 18th Century. The village has an active parish council which hosts events such as street fairs and Christmas Concerts held in the beautiful St James' Parish Church. Often regarded as one of the prettiest villages in Dorset, Milton Abbas is an attractive place to live for so many different reasons.

The cottage, built circa 1780, offers many original features. The ground floor boasts a superb Inglenook fireplace and fantastic flagstone flooring. Throughout the property there are many original doors and windows which really give a feel for the amount of history steeped within the property's walls.

The kitchen diner is the heart of the cottage; built with a cathedral style ceiling, and roomy enough to house a large dining table, this fantastic room provides the home with a "social hub" where the whole family can gather.

The first floor comprises the two bedrooms with the master boasting a wonderful lead lite window overlooking the front gardens. There is a connecting door which leads through to bedroom two with both bedrooms enjoying polished wooden floorboards.

Externally, the front garden is laid to lawn, with a driveway to the side, providing off road parking. A five-bar wooden gate leads to the patio which is the perfect spot to enjoy a warm summers day. The gardens are elevated and split into several areas, each with with its own charm. There are also idyllic seating areas dotted throughout that enjoy the wonderful nearby views overlooking the village. The garden continues into a wooded copse which is part of the village owned wood.
