Hill Lodge at Milton Abbas, Blandford Forum, originally dates from the mid-19th Century and was the former lodge to the Park, Hill Lodge. The property has been sympathetically renovated and extended to provide a home of great character on the outskirts of this historic village. It is on the market at a guide price of £550,000.
The village dates back to 1773 when Lord Milton ordered the transfer of the old town of Middletown, originally located in the grounds of Milton Abbey, to the new picturesque location.
The famous landscape gardener Capability Brown worked on the design of Milton Abbas with renowned architect William Chambers, together creating a visually stunning village that some consider one of the first planned settlements in England.
The inviting home is packed with pleasing features – the sitting room has a vaulted ceiling, feature fireplace with multi fuel stove and double doors that lead out to the private sun terrace.
The kitchen/dining room is well served with a range of solid oak units and granite work surfaces. The property has oil fired central heating.
The three-bedroom property is generously proportioned and features a secluded rear garden enclosed with evergreen hedging. There are two parking spaces plus a garage.
