About this property

  • Milton Grange sits at the heart of the village on a private turning off Post Office Road. The property is screened by mature planting, with access via a five-bar gate tucked away at the end of a shingle driveway, wide enough to provide parking at the front and side of the house and leading on to a detached brick-built double garage equipped with up and over doors, power and lighting.

    The house, which was architect designed in 1964, has a red brick and tile hung façade with a tiled porch overhang framing the entrance. The arched front door opens on to the spacious reception hall, which is a double aspect room with a tiled floor and a large sweeping staircase leading up to the first floor. The hall leads off left and down past a ground floor cloakroom towards a dining room overlooking the rear garden, a garden room with study area and patio doors to the rear and a light, spacious kitchen/breakfast room with a double aspect to the front and side and extensive Shaker-style units. A substantial utility/boot room off the kitchen incorporates space for numerous additional appliances, is fitted with a range of units and houses the boiler. An inner lobby opens on to another two rooms, currently utilised as ground floor bedrooms but are easily adaptable for other uses.

    On the first floor landing an arched doorway at the top of the stairs opens on to a bright, well-proportioned sitting room with a high ceiling, an open fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows with double doors leading on to a balcony overlooking the rear southwest-facing garden and the views beyond. Other accommodation on this floor includes two double bedrooms, a family bathroom with a separate bath and shower, a separate WC and the master bedroom, which is equipped with a range of fitted wardrobes, a spacious en suite shower room and views over the garden.

    The good-sized plot has gated access on both sides of the property leading to the secluded rear garden. A substantial part-canopied patio extends the width of the back of the house while the remainder of the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature planting and trees and a discreet compost area is tucked away at the rear of the garage.
