A wonderful opportunity to purchase an exquisite, detached single storey residence with three double bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and boasting a tucked away location in the small, friendly village of Milton on Stour. The village has a highly rated primary school, garden centre and the grade II listed church, which dates to1868. About a mile and half away is the town centre of Gillingham with a complete range of facilities and a mainline train station serving London Waterloo and Exeter St David's in the West Country.

The original property dates to the 1800s, believed to have formed the stable block for the adjacent MIlton Lodge and has recently been imaginatively and impeccably re-furbished to provide a blend of contemporary living with a touch of old world charm. The open plan living area boasts a vaulted ceiling and exposed framework that creates a feeling of spaciousness and the exposed stone walls add a bit of rustic appeal. The heart of this home will surely be the stylish kitchen area, fitted with soft closing shaker style units and built in appliances, it is perfect for whipping up delicious meals for guests or family and has tri-folding doors leading out to the sun terrace - ideal for pre-dinner entertaining or simply relaxing with a coffee. Boasting over 1500 sq. ft (144 sq. m) of accommodation, the property is not short on space as a family home or a place to welcome friends for a weekend retreat. But if you need more there is potential for an extension upwards for two more bedrooms and a bathroom, subject to planning permission.

The property is currently used as a very successful holiday let - please use the link below for more pictures and additional information.....A chance to try before you buy! However, a property of this calibre won't be on the open market for long.
