Maltings House is the only non grade listed property positioned along the Street in Milton Abbas. It has been the subject of a total restoration which has been hugely improved and transformed the property. The juxtaposition of the contemporary interior now makes a fabulous home or country retreat.

The property was believed to have once been the former Milton Brewery House, in the 1880’s a fire destroyed the thatched roof and a 19th century façade was added to the property along with the tiled roof.

The attention to detail internally is evident from the moment you step into the house; there are ‘Dijon’ limestone tiled floors that run through the hallway, kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is stunning; it has a range of fitted wall and base cupboards with drawers all beneath granite worktops, an island unit with Belfast sink, integrated appliances and a Rangemaster Cooker. The main reception room runs the width of the house and is a terrific space to entertain (the room could also be divided to make two rooms); the room retains it’s character features with bay sash windows complete with working shutters, a feature inglenook fireplace with new woodburning stove and beam over, finished with engineered oak flooring. On the first floor a light and spacious landing with walk in linen cupboard and access to all four bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room with a built in wardrobe. Completing the first floor accommodation is the stunning family bathroom.

All of the properties along the street have open grass verge front gardens; to one side is a paved drive and a thatched barn. The thatched barn has excellent potential for conversion, subject to the necessary planning and building regulations. There is light and power connected along with additional loft space (historically planning permission has been granted). This space would make an ideal ancillary accommodation or alternatively a home office. On the adjacent side of the property there is a pretty courtyard.
At the rear there is a further enclosed courtyard with oil tank and outhouse which also houses the new oil fired boiler. Path and steps lead to the elevated gardens, mainly laid to lawn with mature hedging and planted trees, giving the garden its superb privacy. The garden rises up to a tranquil wild garden adjoining the woodland (forming the rear boundary); there is a delightful outlook from the top of the garden across the village.
