Tenure: Freehold

Built by the Hambro family in the 19th century as the Dower House for Milton Abbey. The house is complemented by additional ancillary accommodation in the former coach house, housekeeper's flat, ample garaging, an outdoor heated swimming pool and is set in delightful gardens and grounds

Milton Manor is an imposing edge of village house situated in a wonderful rural location. The house is approached from a quiet lane. The main drive leads to the impressive stone porch with large oak doors. The house boasts a grand reception hall with magnificent fireplace sporting the Hambro Coat of Arms.
The house offers fantastic family accommodation over two floors. The property has some classic features of the Arts and Crafts period including stone and oak mullioned windows, stone and slate tiled roof, large fireplaces and oak panelling in several rooms. The property was completely renovated 20 years ago by the current owners. The kitchen and drawing room face southwards with fine views across the principal lawn over open farmland towards the Purbeck Hills and beyond. Many of the rooms in the house have views to the beautiful gardens and grounds that make up about 5.6 acres.

The former Coach house has been converted into two 2 bedroom flats. This provides useful additional accommodation for family, staff or visitors. The Coach House has its own drive and thus can be rented out to provide an income without impacting on the main house.
An integral garage and workshop, 4 bay garage and workshop provide ample housing for vehicles, machinery as well as storage.

There are sweeping lawns, a large paved terrace, with a variety of mature hedges, trees, flowerbeds and shrubs. There is a secluded outdoor heated swimming pool close to a mixed fruit orchard.
