Milton is a hamlet located close to the village of East Knoyle on the Wiltshire/Dorset border. The popular village claims to be the birthplace of Sir Christopher Wren and features many period properties, a church, pub and village shop. The historic Saxon town of Shaftesbury, famous for the Hovis advert, is a short distance away and offers most everyday amenities including GP's., a cottage hospital, supermarket and a vibrant High Street with well-known and independent shops and cafes. There is a wide choice of local state and independent, primary and secondary schools and road communications are excellent with the A350 linking north and south and the A303 leading to London very nearby. Mainline railways stations to London Waterloo can be found at Gillingham and Tisbury.
The parking area is approached from the lane via a five bar gate. A path leads to the front door with a pretty porch canopy topped with an original stone cross. The garden has areas of gently terraced lawn with mature trees, herbaceous and flower borders. A particular feature are the lovely countryside views from the highest point of the garden.
Permission has been granted for a single storey garden room extension. The ref number is 20/05282/FUL
