Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Most handsome listed Grade II Italianate villa close to the Jurassic coast.

Description

Eastbrook House is a most handsome Grade II listed mid 19th century Italianate style villa set in beautifully landscaped formal gardens of approximately 1.8 acres with further land extending to 4.4 acres arranged around an attractive natural lake. This impressive village house has limestone elevations under a slate roof with sash windows giving symmetry and flooding the house internally with light. Inside the house has some nicely proportioned rooms including a spacious reception hall with an impressive staircase to the first floor and principal reception rooms on the South side with high ceilings and open fireplaces. The kitchen is situated in the heart of the house beyond which are a series of further rooms including integral double garage, a garden room and a substantial fitness suite/games room formerly used as an indoor swimming pool.

Outside
Eastbrook House, which is situated on the southern edge of this charming village, is approached from the lane via electrically operated double gates providing access to a driveway with ample parking and access to an integral double garage and a separate block of two further garages. To the South and West of the house are attractive areas of level lawn with some mature established borders and some fine mature trees bordered by an attractive stone wall. To the South and East of the house are the bulk of the grounds with the whole extending in total to approximately six acres. Close to the house is an attractive walled kitchen garden, a large area of terrace and a walled tennis court with covered verandah. Beyond that a grass track with separate access to the lane provides a buffer between the formal gardens and the paddocks and pond, currently designed to encourage wildlife and being a less formal setting with a recently planted copse and some mature woodland.

Location

Set amidst some of the West Country’s finest countryside and protected by the rolling hills of the South Dorset Downs lies the ancient village of Upwey which, as its name suggests, runs along the upper reaches of the river Wey. In his book “The Buildings of Old Weymouth” Eric Ricketts describes Upwey as ‘this beautiful village at the head of the Wey’.

Upwey is conveniently located approximately four miles from the town of Dorchester and just three miles from the Georgian seaside town of Weymouth situated on a sheltered bay at the mouth of the River Wey. Weymouth is a vibrant market town, with a pretty historic harbour, lovely restaurants and plenty of shopping.

This is also where The Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy is situated providing public and private marinas. The county town of Dorchester (four miles) and Bridport (16 miles) both provide an excellent range of shopping, educational, recreational and cultural facilities.

Sporting facilities in the area include golf at Came Down and West Bay, horse racing at Wincanton, Salisbury or Exeter, hunting with the Cattistock and South Dorset Hunts. Sailing and water sports can be enjoyed at Weymouth Bay (the 2012 Olympic sailing venue) or along the Dorset Jurassic coastline, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you can picnic on the beach or walk for hours along the coastline.

Independent schools in Dorset include the Sherborne Schools for Boys and Girls, Leweston, Canford, Bryanston, Clayesmore, Milton Abbey and Port Regis.

Communications in the area include mainline railway links available from Upwey, Dorchester or Weymouth with services to London Waterloo. The A35 can be joined to the north providing a route to the A31, M27 and M3 east or the A30 west. Bournemouth Airport provides scheduled domestic and international flights and there are ferry links from Poole or Weymouth to the Channel Islands and France.

Acreage: 6.24 Acres
