Milburn Lane Cottage was built to the current owners exacting specification in 2011. Emphasis was placed on big rooms, low running costs and accommodation that took full advantage of the southerly aspects and the panoramic views over the Blackmore Vale, taking in the Bullbarrow escarpment, the Dorset Gap, Church Hill and Batcombe Down. The accommodation which is arranged over two floors, comprises a large entrance lobby with cloaks cupboard, opening into a reception hall with staircase and capacious store under, and a large cloakroom to one side. From here double doors open into the double aspect sitting room focused on a fireplace with brick surround and wood burning stove. The sitting room takes full advantage of a south and westerly aspect. On the eastern side of the building, and as a consequence perfectly orientated for morning sunshine, is the magnificent kitchen, fitted and equipped to a very high standard. This opens to a dining area which has double doors joining with the sitting room, and French casements out to the terrace. All ground floors, with the exception of the sitting room which is carpeted, are ceramic tiled. The staircase leads up to the landing which has a recess that can be used as a study area. The principal bedroom has a double aspect, a walk in wardrobe and a large ensuite bathroom. There are two more double bedrooms served by a beautifully fitted shower room, incorporating a large linen cupboard. The loft, which is currently accessed via a folding ladder, is readily adaptable to provide additional accommodation should this be desired. The emphasis of the build was on low running costs with an electric central heating system, UPVC sealed unit double glazing, a pressurised hot water system, and an extensive electrical specification.
Five bar gates open to parking for numerous cars adjacent to which stands a double garage/workshop with electrically operated sectional door. To the rear of the garage is a well screened vegetable and soft fruit garden, and a storage area. Adjoining the house on the eastern and southern sides is a secluded large terrace and entertaining area. The remainder of the garden which stretches to the south is principally laid to grass for ease of maintenance.
