A beautifully presented four bedroom detached residence enjoying spacious accommodation and a wealth of character throughout, set in the picturesque village of Milton Abbas.

The Maltings is a development of nine properties which form part of the old brewery at the bottom of The Street in Milton Abbas. Built in the 18th Century and converted approx. 30 years ago, this detached residence sits amongst attractive thatched cottages.

With versatile accommodation over two floors, the property has undergone extensive redecoration and refurbishment in the current owners’ tenure.

On the ground floor, this beautiful residence has a large kitchen, living room and study/bedroom four all situated off a large dining hall, a real focal point of the property. The dining hall is a spacious room with light flooding in from a range of attractive windows and exposed beams which continue throughout the property. From the hallway is a door to a downstairs cloakroom with W/C and wash hand basin, a door leading to a large double garage, with doors through to the parking area, airing cupboard, oil tank, boiler and useful utility area in one corner. The living room has two high level windows bringing in light and a beautiful brick built fireplace occupying one wall.

The fireplace has a bressumer above and raised stone hearth with an inset log burner, ideal for winter nights.

The kitchen is a particular feature of the property with eye catching tumbled marble flooring and exposed ceiling timbers greeting you upon entry. There are a number of attractive shaker style base level units under an oak worktop with a further large island unit in the centre. There are a range of integrated appliances including dishwasher, microwave, an inset one and a half sink and drainer and space and connection for an American style fridge/freezer.

The study/bedroom four is to the front of the property and is a large double room. There is a cupboard which houses the fuse board and attractive ceiling timbers.

Rising to the first floor, the open landing is light and bright with a large roof window, arranged as an office area. There is a loft hatch giving access into the roof storage and doors to bedrooms and bathroom.

The master bedroom has partially valuated ceilings with exposed timbers and a window offering a lovely view up the picturesque vista of The Street.

There is a fitted wardrobe and a range of eaves storage cupboards and a door into a spacious and well-appointed en suite with slate flooring, bath, separate shower, W/C and wash hand basin.

Bedrooms two and three are spacious doubles with partially vaulted ceilings and exposed beams with both side aspect windows and roof windows. Each room has eaves storage cupboards.

Completing the accommodation is a well-appointed family bathroom with tiled flooring and an attractive window seat with clever storage space beneath. The bath has a shower over, W/C, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

The property has a small area of lawned garden abutting the road and also benefits from a large and attractive communal garden located to the rear of the development. The communal garden can also be accessed by steps from the gravelled footpath from around the rear of the properties. This area has a wonderful view over the village and is equipped with a BBQ and seating, ideal for entertaining. There is also a small area of woodland.

Steeped in history, Milton Abbas offers a well-known public house, a post office, Steeptonbill Farm Shop, a church and tea rooms as well as a doctor's surgery and the famous Milton Abbey School with its own golf club.

The nearby market town of Blandford Forum is approximately 7 miles and the county town of Dorchester, with mainline station, is approximately 10 miles and both offer commercial, shopping and sporting facilities.

There are a range of excellent local schools in the area including Milton Abbey, Bryanston and Clayesmore in the private sector. Local state schools include The Blandford School and Thomas Hardye School in Dorchester. The larger towns of Poole and Bournemouth are approximately 20 miles and 25 miles, respectively, and the coast can be reached within a 40 minute drive.
