What do we think makes this property so special?

Has the recent Pandemic made you re-evaluate your priorities? Have you always toyed with the idea of living ‘The Good Life’ like Tom and Barbara (google it if you’re too young to remember). Well, this property gives you all the garden space you’ll need to be self-sufficient.

With all the noise that goes on in today’s world, hands up who fancy a more relaxed pace of life? Perhaps now is the time to try village life and all the trappings that go with it. Now don’t judge me but for me, I can’t think of a better way to enjoy a weekend than to walk down to my local pub where I can eat great food and kick back and relax after a hard week. Come rain or shine I can relax losing hours on end in front of the fire warming up after taking the dog for a walk. Imagine waking up in the morning to the sound of nature’s playlist?

First impression as you venture out to Millford Grange is the sudden feeling of complete relaxation thanks to the beauty of the setting, you drive through the bubbling ford with its weeping willows and beautiful flowers. The barn is hidden behind high hedging with views over rolling fields in a plot that measure just over 0.5 acre.

Approaching 4800 square feet there’s enough space for the largest of families. But the real uniqueness of the property is how the space can be used. The barn is a spacious family home with the added benefit of a detached appointed guest lodge/granny annex or indeed, as our current vendors do, use it as a lucrative business by way of holiday let / bed and breakfast use. Due to the stunning location being close by far enough away from the main barn, Honeysuckle Cottage has an excellent occupancy rate providing a healthy income. The cottage would also make a lovely place to live for those with live-in relatives as it is so beautifully presented.

Internally the beautifully presented and improved barn perfectly blends contemporary living whilst retaining a wealth of characterful original features such as vaulted ceilings, flagstone floors, exposed brick walls, and beams. From the moment you set foot inside the property, you know you are in a special home. The hall is a perfect place to greet friends and family, straight ahead you enter the kitchen. Undoubtedly, the heart of any home is the kitchen and ‘Millford Grange’ is no different, it really is the hub of the home where everybody tends to congregate, the room is easily large enough to house a family dining table for more informal dining. The works tops are granite and the impressive range style cooker sits proudly in the room. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room allowing you to keep those noisy appliances out of earshot. Next to this is one of the garages which is used as a boot room.

From the kitchen you enter the elegant sitting room, the dual aspect windows and twin set of French doors not only offer charming views of the grounds but also flood the room with natural light. An imposing fireplace with the wood burning stove is a real focal point of the room and one imagines being mesmerised by a roaring fire in the winter months. Undoubtedly a key feature of this room is the vaulted ceiling with exposed beams that finish this room off perfectly.

The dining room flows effortlessly from the drawing-room. This room is an entertainer’s dream, with space to comfortably hold at least 14 guests, the question of ‘where are we having Christmas?’ will never be asked again! Like the sitting room, the space is another visual delight having the same impressive, vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. Double doors guide you through to another sitting room, the lower ceilings help give this room a cosy feel and you can imagine sitting back and relaxing in front of your favourite box set.

It’s from this room that provides access to the remaining accommodation. To the left, you move into a large home office. A quiet corner of the property allowing you to be free from noise and distractions. Next along is one of the staircases which give access to a double bedroom with an en-suite. Finally, you access the other wing of the barn, the long walkway acts as a spine that runs the length of the wing and provides access to the remaining rooms on this level. As this wing has its own entrance it could easily be adapted and closed off to create a self-contained accommodation. According to the owners, the developers who converted the barn had wanted to turn this into a separate dwelling but the planners refused. Within this space, there are three excellent double bedrooms all of which offer views over the charming gardens. There are two bathrooms and a separate toilet which could be altered to have a shower meaning all three rooms could be en-suite. A special mention should go to the end bedroom which is another beautiful room and could easily be used as the main bedroom.

Last but not least is the main bedroom, which is accessed from the stairs in the main hall, it is the only bedroom from this staircase and like so many of the rooms is a joy to behold. The room measures an impressive 22’ and benefits from a dressing area and large 5 piece en-suite with walk-in shower.

Gardens & Grounds

Like the internals, the gardens are beautifully maintained. Due to the shape of the barns, there are gardens to three sides. The main garden is part walled and is the quintessential English country garden stocked with a wide range of plants, shrubs, and trees. On the opposite side is a large space which has raised beds providing the perfect area to grown your own veg and immerse yourself in the ‘Good life’. There is also a smaller patio allowing you to enjoy the space all year round.

Honeysuckle Cottage sits on its own grounds which helps give that perfect balance of being close but not too close. The cottage has its own drive and gardens. Internally the space is very well presented and is set up like a studio, with bedroom/living space, separate kitchen, and shower room. Behind the cottage is a surprisingly large, private garden which is mainly laid to lawn with space for a chicken coup.
