Property details

Inside

This magnificent property has been completely, lovingly, renovated, extended, and improved in every regard, bringing together a truly original blend of contemporary quality and convenience with classic period materials and charm. Nestled in the heart of the historic village of Milton Abbas, it provides easy access to nearby amenities while maintaining a sense of privacy and seclusion.

This large detached thatched cottage stands proudly on a generous plot, showcasing its timeless appeal. The newly thatched roof, a hallmark of traditional English architecture, adds period character to the property. Special features include an air source heat pump, zoned underfloor heating on all floors and oak windowsills throughout.

Stepping inside, you are greeted by a warm and inviting interior. The cottage boasts TWO CHARACTERFUL RECEPTION ROOMS, to the front of the property, both with newly fitted wood burners set in stunning inglenook fireplaces. The rooms capture the essence of rustic elegance, creating cosy and comfortable living environments.

The ground floor comprises a further large RECEPTION ROOM with flagstones – flexibly situated for use as an additional SNUG, OFFICE or STUDY.

The absolutely stunning KITCHEN DINING ROOM runs the full width of the property and is a recent addition. With high ceilings and two glass atrium roofs, and glass-fronted double doors to the garden, this room is flooded with natural light. In addition to ample space for a dining table and/or sofa suite, the kitchen itself is replete with quartz worktops, ample wall and floor mounted units, and integrated microwave, two ovens, five-ring induction hob, large 'American-Style' fridge freezer, and space for further white goods.

The remaining bedrooms are spacious and well-appointed, each framing stunning views of the expansive garden or quintessential village street. Additionally, there is the FAMILY BATHROOM featuring elegant fixtures and fitting including a claw-foot, roll top bath, shower cubicle, wash hand basin and W.C.
