The central feature hallway provides access to reception rooms either side, with stairs to the first floor and an under stairs cellar storage space situated next to the utility/boot room.
The formal dining room sets the tone for the property with spacious accommodation and a double glazed sash-effect window to the front, whilst the room centres round a feature stone fireplace with a slate mantle and hearth surrounding an open fire.
The dining room is located in front of the utility/boot room which is still a fantastic work space, providing work surfaces, ceiling beams and ceiling-mounted meat hooks. The room also houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.
The main reception space to the ground floor provides an open plan and free-flowing family room with a delightful lounge located to the front of the property, which includes an impressive recessed fireplace with a brick-built surround and solid stone hearth housing a multi-fuel burner to complement the feature beams to the ceiling. The room is filled with natural light through a double glazed sash-style window looking out onto the front garden, whilst an open archway provides access through into the modern fitted kitchen.
A fabulous exposed stone wall with display recesses and feature timber beams dominate the kitchen, which includes an L-shaped granite work surface with fitted storage units throughout, comprising a range of appliances including a double oven and warming drawer, a four ring Siemens touch controlled induction hob and an extractor hood, as well as a recessed sink and mixer tap set between two double glazed windows to the rear yard.

The sun room provides a peaceful and private reception space to the rear of the property with double glazed windows to all sides looking out onto the surrounding rear gardens, whilst benefitting from underfloor heating and French doors opening onto the patio. There is also access into a three-piece shower room which includes a shower cubicle with a Mira Sport power shower, a WC and pedestal wash hand basin.
The bedroom accommodation is set across the first and second floors and provides seven double bedrooms with contrasting aspects, but all boasting fabulous proportions and traditional features.
The master bedroom looks out over the front garden and beyond across the fields/paddock land to Farleton Knott through one of two double glazed sash-style windows to the front, and sits adjacent to the second double bedroom which boasts an exposed wooden floor with matching double glazed sash-style window and a window seat. The third first floor double bedroom also provides exposed wooden floorboards and a 'tilt and turn' double glazed window looking out onto the yard.
The first floor also features the bathroom which includes a low-level bath and separate shower cubicle with a Mira electric power shower and a vanity wash hand basin.

Each room has fabulous exposed wooden beams to the pitched ceiling whilst the sixth and seventh bedrooms also provide timber detailing to the walls bordering onto the landing and stairwell. The fourth bedroom has two Velux roof lights to the pitched ceiling and exposed floorboards. The fifth bedroom has a side aspect onto the rear garden, whilst the sixth and seventh bedrooms also provide contrasting side aspects through double glazed windows.
The second floor features a versatile layout which could be developed to include en-suite accommodation, with the rooms also boasting potential for a home office/study or a studio, as well as games rooms or nurseries.
Milton House also boasts a varied and versatile rear garden area, which extends from the stone paved patio seating area accessed from the sun room, up a sloped pathway leading to a raised and shaped lawn with heavily planted beds surrounding.
