This imposing detached Grade II listed thatched cottage is located in the sought after village of Milton Abbas. The property offers unique, well presented, versatile accommodation set in a stunning rural location. The cottage enjoys a substantial garden to the rear offering South-Westerly views across the surrounding countryside.

 

The Old Forge is located in the sought after village of Milton Abbas, one of Dorset's most attractive villages. Renowned for its Abbey, Milton Abbas offers a store/sub post office, a doctors surgery, a public house and church. Nearby Blandford and Dorchester, offer a variety of shops and eateries, both providing a pleasant environment in which to shop and relax.

 

The property is approached via a private driveway providing access to the garage and ample off road parking.

The accommodation itself is simply stunning. The main entrance hall provides a most impressive introduction to the property. A second hallway connects the converted outbuildings to the original main house and offers a Mediterranean feel, gained via decorative vines, exposed wooden beams and tiled flooring.

The lovely bright sitting room offers two front aspect windows and a door leading to the front garden. The room features a large Inglenook fireplace with multi fuel burner and wooden beam mantle. Exposed wooden beams continue through to the dining area where there is a second fireplace. The adjoining snug offers a cosy feel created from a feature multi fuel burner with recessed alcoves on both sides and also window seat.

The Kitchen/Breakfast room is a fabulous addition to the property having been converted from an outbuilding in 1996. Original exposed wooden beams and a wooden door create a great introduction to this farmhouse style kitchen. It is a spacious, light and airy room, ideal for entertaining. Plentiful natural light is gained via dual aspect windows and French doors that lead outside. The kitchen is fitted to a high standard with an extensive range of wall and floor mounted cupboard units with work surfaces over together with a Range oven and a feature centre island with marble work surface.

The dining room offers excellent dimensions and the rear aspect window offers views towards the garden.

Further accommodation on this floor includes a ground floor bedroom offered with luxury en-suite facilities, an additional bathroom and a spacious utility room with a range of floor mounted units with work surface over, additional storage cupboards with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a floor mounted boiler and a window to the side. There is also access to the garage from the kitchen.

The impressive planning and presentation continues throughout the first floor, access for which is gained via two separate staircases, one leading from the main entrance hall and one from the snug.


Accommodation on this floor comprises five well-appointed bedrooms all finished to a high standard, as throughout the entire property. There are two bathrooms, both tastefully fitted with suites comprising low level WCs, wash hand basins and panelled enclosed baths with showers over.

The cottage enjoys a substantial garden to the rear of the property offering a South-Westerly facing aspect. The garden is laid mainly to lawn being elevated with an abundance of mature flower beds, plants and shrubs. The garden is enclosed by a mixture of hedging and fencing and offers stunning views across the Village and surrounding countryside. A well positioned decked area at the bottom of the garden offers the opportunity for alfresco dining within a peaceful, secluded position. The property also owns a vast area of natural woodland accessed from the rear garden.

A paved area to the side of the property offers a log store and further raised flower beds.

There is a oversized garage with power and light, original flooring from 'The Old Forge' and a storage area above accessed via a ladder.
