Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This delightful Georgian residence is situated in the ever-popular area of Preston. Originally 'Jordan Farm House', one of only a few properties scattered along Preston Road in the early 1800s, this would have been a working farmhouse. Its rural roots are evident in the handsome, symmetrical façade, wide front door typical of the period, and the rambling Wisteria climbing up the cream rendering. The property has since been sympathetically restored by its current owners, who have done their utmost to keep much of its original charm intact, from the geometric-style tiled hallway to the many fire surrounds, doors, architraves and cubby holes. The property is arranged over three floors with an apartment on the third floor. At first floor level are five double bedrooms with an en-suite to the master, and on the ground floor are a formal drawing room, dining room, and three further reception rooms.

The grand ENTRANCE HALLWAY benefits from encaustic tiled flooring around a magnificent timber staircase leading to the first floor. Immediately off the hallway is the SITTING ROOM, benefitting from a vast amount of space. This double aspect room invites you to enjoy the garden vistas from a window seat sitting alongside the carved timber fireplace, which houses a gas fire. Opposite is the DINING ROOM, a light and spacious room with original sash windows to the front aspect, attractive fireplace with cast iron surround, cupboard space either side of the chimney breast, and ample space for furniture. Adjacent is the farmhouse style KITCHEN, which offers a range of wall and base units, complete with an island and granite work surfaces. Integrated appliances include a fridge and dishwasher, eye-level electric oven, and electric hob with extractor fan. An additional door from the kitchen leads directly to the dining room. Opposite, the UTILITY ROOM is well proportioned, with a sink and drainer, and space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier. Across the hallway is a spacious STUDY with a side aspect, which could be utilised as another bedroom if so desired. The study also gives access to a CLOAKROOM with WC and hand-wash basin. Opposite the study is the DRAWING ROOM with original sash window, which makes for yet another excellent entertaining space.

Beyond this are myriad additional rooms. A further UTILITY ROOM houses the large boiler, and a bright GARDEN ROOM leads on to a GARDEN STORE of brick, timber and glass – a true gardener’s delight with access to the wonderful side garden, OUTSIDE WC, and further STORE. There is an additional WORKSHOP/HOBBIES ROOM with a large LOFT over with the potential to develop it subject to the necessary planning.

Returning to the entrance hallway, the main staircase and an additional rear staircase rise to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING, which is large and light, with bannisters creating a galleried effect. The bedrooms are all situated off this area, including the good-sized MASTER BEDROOM with fitted wardrobes and dual-aspect en-suite bathroom offering bath, WC, hand-wash basin, and seperate shower cubicle.

All FIVE DOUBLE BEDROOMS enjoy large sash windows, most with pretty outlooks, and BEDROOMS TWO, THREE and FOUR also benefit from fitted wardrobes and hand-wash basins. An INNER LANDING to the rear leads to the FAMILY BATHROOM, with suite comprising a bath with shower over, WC, and hand-wash basin. Stairs rise from this small landing to the SECOND FLOOR LANDING with with fitted cupboards, which provides a large SELF-CONTAINED APARTMENT with spacious KITCHEN/DINING/SITTING ROOM, and TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS. The BATHROOM with bath, separate shower cubicle, WC, and hand-wash basin can be accessed from both the landing and the larger of the two bedrooms.

Outside
The property's GARDENS are one of its most lovely features. The main area of garden, found to the front of the property, is a semi-formal with box hedging, deep well-stocked borders, a variety of fruit trees, and an area of lawn. Directly in front of the house, a graveled pathway gives access to the road via a tall wooden gate. Beyond this area of garden, the DRIVEWAY opens onto an area of hardstanding suitable for approximately six cars, and a DOUBLE GARAGE. To the side of the garage, a graveled path leads to another semi-formal lawned garden, bordered by a further gravel path and low box hedging.

Location
Preston represents one of the most sought-after residential areas of Weymouth, and is well-served by local amenities at nearby Chalbury Corner, with its off-licence, delicatessen, hairdresser and doctors surgery. Also just a short distance from the property is a local Post Office and convenience store selling newspapers and groceries, the beach at Overcombe Corner, and beautiful walks around Lodmoor Nature Reserve.
