Mrs Clarke loves:
The mixture of characterful and luxury touches throughout create an unmatchable countryside lifestyle.

Stylish and spacious, characterful yet modern, and with stunning countryside and waterfront views; The Milk House has it all. This converted milking parlour and granary, set in approximately 9 blissful acres of land, is utterly unique. It offers versatile living and the ultimate in privacy. Approached via a no-through lane, it’s lovely and secluded, set behind electric gates, with just a couple of cottages for neighbours. She’s a beaut.

A turnkey property, with bespoke features and a high quality finish throughout if you're looking for something special, the Milk House is it. With endless views stretching as far as the eye can see, you’d be hard pressed to find a more captivating outlook. There are no less than five bedrooms and four bathrooms, and three stunning reception rooms, this beautiful home offers all you could wish for, and more.

The bespoke, hand-painted kitchen in Farrow and Ball’s iconic Elephant’s Breath, is a foodie’s dream. Complete with granite worktops and Travertine floor with underfloor heating – naturally. There’s a wonderful Aga at the heart of it all, double Belfast statement sink, and sleek integrated dishwasher. Bi-fold doors lead you to the open courtyard garden and the vaulted oak ceiling is light and airy, and something very special indeed. A bronze, bespoke staircase adds a real point of difference to the space, and, as with every room in The Milk House, the vista is spectacular.

The large, vaulted family lounge is stunning, with full height windows, a skylight to further maximise the natural light, and bi-fold doors - which lead through to the courtyard. The beautiful oak wooden floor with underfloor heating keeps everything lovely and warm.

There's a sunny snug and dining room, with full height windows which let the wonderful views flood in and oak flooring with underfloor heating. As if it wasn’t cosy enough, a Jotul logburner adds further warmth and the addition of panelling and feature brickwork bring individuality to this room. This room is perfect for a spot of leisurely breakfast or relaxing in at any time of the day

From painting, to knitting, with a dedicated hobby room, you can while away the hours doing what you love the most. This space would also make a superb playroom or office. And we really can’t think of a more perfect spot to work from home. The double height windows drink in the garden views towards the River Severn, and Cotswolds escarpment beyond. There’s a useful cloakroom and utility room downstairs as well, and a lovely porch just made for wellies!

The large Master bedroom, with impressive vaulted ceiling, enjoys an idyllic garden view and features a fully tiled, full en-suite bathroom. Lock yourself away, luxuriate in the bath, and enjoy the clean lines and tranquillity. The fourth bedroom has French doors through to the garden and, again, a beautiful aspect towards the River Severn. The three upstairs bedrooms, each of which is individual in design, are all en-suite and fully tiled, with underfloor heating and heated towel rails.

Forget a double garage. The Milk House has no less than a quadruple garage, with large barn doors. There’s also a modern, open barn, which is - incredibly - a very similar size to The Milk House itself, with large potential for a development opportunity as a completely separate dwelling. Amongst the 9 acres of land, there are three courtyard areas in total, as well as an orchard where apples, pears and plums grow in abundance.

A bespoke Shepherd’s Hut, designed to the current owners’ exacting specifications, stands proudly in a dedicated spot on the highest part of the land, affording it 360-degree wrap around views towards Severn Bridge and Bristol, and The Cotswolds. Fully connected with all services, it’s an absolute gem and contains an open plan bedroom, kitchen with log burner, and separate bathroom. We simply adore it!

The Milk House is situated in a relaxed, rural community with great walks and with easy access to the Forest of Dean, on bike or on foot. Sail at Lydney Harbour, and indulge in an array of watersports, including kayaking, paddleboarding, and fishing on the River Wye.

This beautiful home is well served by both state and independent schools at both primary and secondary level, and there are good links from the A48 to the M4. Bristol Airport is under an hour away, and Clifton, Gloucester Quays, and Cheltenham are all easily accessible. Favourite local eateries include the Severn and Wye Smokery, and Hanley Farm Shop and Café.
