This beautifully presented, Victorian home occupies a prime elevated position on the hillside in Milton and benefits from stunning views across the town towards the Mendip Hills. The four-bedroom detached property is typical of its era and has several charming period features including ornate fireplaces, high ceilings and wooden floors.

Inside, the house is presented to a very high standard and the rooms are spacious and well-proportioned. On the ground floor, there are three large reception rooms including a lounge, a formal sitting room and an extended dining room. The sitting room is located at the front of the house and benefits from a beautiful bay window, a large fireplace, high ceilings and period cornicing. The lounge is equally pleasant and has a more informal cosy look. Natural light streams into the dining room through the patio doors that open out to the rear garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room has a characterful farmhouse look with terracotta floor tiles, and cream shaker-style units with contrasting work surfaces. The room is large enough to comfortably accommodate a table and chairs for eight people.

On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, where the principal bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room. A larger-than-average family bathroom serves the other bedrooms on this floor.

Outside, the large rear garden is not overlooked and offers a high degree of privacy. The garden has been tastefully landscaped with an appealing shaped patio area featuring block paving that also incorporates a feature brick wall and seat. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and is surrounded by mature trees and very well-stocked shrub borders. The summer house is a welcome addition, and the workshop is a handy extension.

To the front, there is a small garden laid to lawn and very well screened by a mature hedge. A block paved driveway to the side leads to a detached single garage.
