Description

Milton Lodge is a wonderful period family home. Believed to date from 1865, this Victorian villa makes for a very handsome house, together with a stunning secluded and landscaped garden. The house offers large sash windows and high ceilings in the principal rooms ensuring an abundance of natural light. Features include moulded cornices, stained glass, sash windows with original shutters, handsome fireplaces in the main reception rooms which can be used together to provide a large entertaining area. Fitted bookshelves and glass fronted cupboards, all create an elegant but very comfortable family home.

The spacious accommodation provides six bedrooms with four bathrooms (three en suite) and the principal rooms have a pleasant outlook into the gardens. The hand built kitchen/breakfast/garden room has granite worktops together with a two oven Aga, a four ring gas hob and electric module attached. Adjoining is a walk-in larder. The triple aspect library/study makes a superb home office or, alternatively a comfortable sitting room, adjoining the garden room/conservatory. The study currently doubles as a cinema/TV room with a giant 74" screen.

The drawing room benefits from a full height 'triple-sash' window with shutters, with additional double doors opening into the garden. The dining room is a beautiful room for entertaining and a games room has been created in the basement with natural light, adjacent is the wine cellar.

For parking electric up and over doors give access to the triple garage with adjacent storage and access into the rear garden. There are two additional off road parking spaces to the front of the property.

The Gardens
The gardens, which are mostly south-facing and have been designed with 'low maintenance' in mind, are beautiful. As you approach the front door (through a secure electrically operated pedestrian gate in the garden wall) you are greeted by a hornbeam lined flagstone path, at the end of which is a stone obelisk. Adjacent is a walled 'continental' style garden with a lawned area and parterre with clipped box hedging, and a huge magnolia grandiflora on the south western elevation of the house. The drawing room window is wisteria clad and a wrought iron gate leads through the garden wall to the 'tropical' garden, set around an ornamental pond with a dolphin fountain and lush foliage planting including hardy palm trees, amongst a profusion of other mature shrubs and herbaceous plants. Beyond lies the rear garden and raised flagstone terrace, superb for outdoor entertaining. Around the principal lawn are shrub planted borders, mature oak, horse-chestnut, copper beech and hedging providing great privacy. There is a garden shed and folly/summer house with open fireplace, and to the north east side of the conservatory a 'white' garden, set within clipped yew hedging.

The family kitchen/breakfast room has access to the white garden with an additional private terrace area enclosed by castellated brick walling and yew hedging. In addition, there is a timber 'tree house', slide, swings and sandpit for children. Ample storage sheds are discretely located.
