About This Property

A fine example of a charming Grade II listed cottage beautifully presented and extended with beautifully landscaped gardens all within the heart of this well renowned Dorset village.

Woodlands is a fine example of an 18th century Milton Abbas cob cottage, full of character and charm with many of the original features retained. The property has undergone extensive renovation throughout, extended and exceptionally well maintained by the past and present owners of this cottage. The accommodation to this property is well laid out and spacious, set over two floors. The entrance is welcoming and combines a hall/study with a fitted desk, bookcases, wine rack and cupboards – beautiful Indian slate floors run through the hall, dining room and kitchen, perfect for a village house. In addition there is a cloakroom, both reception rooms are placed at the front of the property and boast oak beams, window seats and fabulous inglenook fireplaces, the sitting room has a Jet Master fireplace. The fireplace in the dining room is not currently in use. The kitchen is a useful space with solid oak doors, wall and base cupboards, integrated appliances include a dishwasher, double oven and microwave, electric halogen hob and fridge/freezer, finished with granite worktops. A fabulous extension to the rear of the property blends the old and new of this property exceptionally – a perfect contemporary blend. It offers additional living space and could also be used as ancillary accommodation if required and it benefits from a ground floor shower room and double bedroom. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes and the master bedroom also incorporates an en suite with impressive ‘Grohe’ shower room. The family bathroom contains a full suite and the cupboard within the landing houses neatly a washer dryer with full plumbing.

The cottage has at the front an open plan area which is lawned and to the side is a paved driveway with single garage – directly above the fourth bedroom is a store room. This area – accessed externally could easily be incorporated in to the main house, if required, subject to the necessary planning consents. However it works exceptionally well as external storage.

The gardens to this property are arguably the best we have seen within Milton Abbas; they have been beautifully and painstakingly landscaped. As you leave the house a stunning paved terrace is a bounded by a fine flint and brick retaining wall; there are steps and path which meander through the terraced gardens, with beautiful lawns and many places to sit and enjoy the fantastic outlooks across the village. There are well stocked borders with vegetable beds and as the garden rises, they adjoin open countryside beyond.
