An 18th Century Grade II listed character cottage on what is believed to be the preferred side of the road of the famed Street of Milton Abbas built by the 1st Earl of Dorchester. The well planned accommodation has been modernised and would make a perfect buy as either a main residence or holiday cottage.
Features include underfloor heating to the ground floor, an Inglenook fireplace with wood burner and bread oven, French limestone flagged floors, exposed beams and window seats. The kitchen has wooden work surfaces that are in keeping with the character with a dresser and ample wall and base cupboards while the modern shower room has a walk in shower with vanity unit, wc and heated towel rail. Both bedrooms have exposed floor boards while the main bedroom has an original fireplace with stove that has been featured on the BBC.
The front of the property has an open plan lawned garden with off road parking for several cars and large store. The larger south facing rear garden has steps to various tiers with large green house, patio, kitchen garden with a second greenhouse and further large shed leading to a woodland garden. The elevation gives wonderful views across the village and open countryside.
The village was redesigned in the 18th Century with white thatched cottages flanking the main street which runs down to the lake. It is serviced by the Hambro Arms, Church, Post Office and General Store, Farm Shop and Doctors surgery. More extensive shopping, business and recreational facilities are available in the Georgian town of Blandford, the County town of Dorchester and the Abbey town of Sherborne.
