The largest of the four bedrooms is positioned to the front of the house overlooking the front garden. This is an exceptionally grand bedroom and leads through to a small single room, which is currently used as a dressing area but could easily be used as a box bedroom or nursery.

There are a further two full sized double bedrooms, one overlooking the front and the other to the side and finally the remaining bedroom is a charming double room with a most southerly position and windows to both the front and side.

Milladen House is surrounded by wonderful garden grounds which continue round the entire house. Woodland flanks the land to the east covered with a blanket of spring planting. Extensive grass lawns create a large open outdoor space, whilst mature trees and plants create privacy to the front.

Tucked away in the garden is a summer house, perfectly positioned to capture the sun. The garden is a haven for many types of wildlife with visiting roe deer and a wide variety of birds.

Located adjacent to the house is a fenced paddock with water trough perfect for equestrian purposes. It’s also believed that the paddock may also be suitable to obtain planning for a detached property with a separate entrance. This is something any potential buyer would need to investigate.
