About this property

  • Accessed down a private drive, in an edge of village location Milcombe Hall is an impressive character property set in wonderful walled gardens and grounds. Having been in the same family ownership for 50 years, the rare opportunity has arisen for the next family to put their mark on this striking property. The property benefits from spacious rooms with generous ceiling heights and there is potential to extend the property further, subject to planning permission.

    The hallway is set within a stone built turret at the front of the house and leads into a light and spacious dual aspect drawing room with stone fireplace.

The dual aspect, kitchen features base and wall units and doors into the delightful garden. A large utility / boot room provides further useful space and a back door.

    A wooden staircase leads to an impressive landing, which would work well as a study. There are three generous, dual aspect double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and a separate family shower room.

    Surrounding the house are mature landscaped walled gardens and grounds, extending to approximately 0.64 acres. To the front of the property is a large turning circle and parking area with a wonderful Willow tree in the centre. There is a range of garaging and stores, offering potential for alternative uses, subject to planning permission.

I love the setting of Milcombe Hall. The spacious walled gardens are very special and I think the house is fascinating, offering further potential too.
