THE PROPERTY

This semi-detached cottage is one of the classic rendered, cob and thatched cottages that form the main street of Milton Abbas. Grade II listed it has been lovingly restored over the years and was hugely improved by the juxtaposition of the stylish contemporary extension. It represents a fabulous country retreat; imminently suited to professional or active retired purchasers or for those looking for a tranquil sanctuary away from the rat race of city life. The open plan bespoke kitchen includes a custom built kitchen with painted cupboards, wall mounted display cabinet and plate rack, oak framed floor to ceiling windows and doors with integral fridge/freezer and dishwasher, butler sink, solid wood work tops and electric Aga. The island with granite work top has inset stainless steel sink, further storage and seating area. The dining area is flooded with light and ideal for entertaining.

The original cottage accommodation provides a separate study with latched door giving access to the stairs. The front aspect sitting room with inglenook fireplace has a wood burning stove and pretty window seat.

Further accommodation on this floor includes a ground floor wet room / utility room.

A staircase leads to the principal bedroom - glass doors open onto a gravelled sitting area. The luxury bathroom and wet room have quality sanitary ware, roll top bath, power shower and wood panelling to dado height. The first floor in the original cottage has 2 further bedrooms with a good sized dressing room/nursery.

OUTSIDE
All the cottages in Milton Abbas have open grass verge front gardens; to one side is a paved drive and detached thatched garage. The path continues around to the side and to the kitchen entrance. Dramatic hard landscaping of stone steps and supporting walls takes you up to the various levels that make up the back garden; terraced sections lead up to secluded and sheltered sitting areas ideal for al fresco entertaining. The garden rises up to a tranquil woodland section at the top boundary; there are stunning views across the village, lake and beyond. The garden is quiet and private with numerous architectural shrubs, flowers and herbs carefully planted and arranged for their structure and impact.

SITUATION
The village was redesigned in the 18th Century when the old village was demolished as part of Capability Brown's landscaping and lakes formed in its place. The white thatched cottages flanking the main street runs down to the lake. It is serviced by the Hambro Arms, Church, Post Office and General Store, Farm Shop and Doctor's surgery. More extensive shopping, business and recreational facilities are available in the Georgian Market town of Blandford Forum and the County town of Dorchester.
