Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Weyside Cottage occupies a delightful position within the much sought after and picturesque village of Upwey, set in stunning gardens and grounds of around 0.34 of an acre.
This attractive, individual house dates from the late 1920's, constructed on the site of two farm workers cottages with brick elevations under a tiled roof.

Under the current ownership, a comprehensive programme of modernisation has been undertaken, together with the construction of an impressive two storey extension to the rear, carefully designed to blend in with the original house.

The accommodation is presented in first class order throughout with the benefit of new double glazed Crittall windows and gas fired central heating. The original oak front door leads into a hallway with access through into a highly impressive, newly extended garden room/dining room which enjoys a triple aspect with bi folding doors opening onto the gardens, contemporary oak flooring and raised fireplace recess. There is a double aspect sitting room with original Coade stone open fireplace and panelled walls. The downstairs
accommodation also has the benefit of a newly refurbished shower room.

A high quality newly installed kitchen has a range of alabaster coloured wall and floor cupboards with granite work surfaces, integrated dishwasher and a ‘Smeg’ induction range cooker. Sliding doors lead into a utility room with matching units and integrated fridge/freezer.

On the first floor is a spacious landing with access to a part boarded loft space. The master bedroom enjoys delightful views over the gardens and river with an en-suite shower room and dressing room. There are four further bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and a family bathroom.

Outside, there are two driveways with an attached double garage and ample parking for several cars, boat or caravan. The front garden is bounded by a stone wall with gravelled borders and shrubs.

The rear garden is a particular feature, enjoying privacy from neighbouring properties and a favoured south and west facing aspect. Immediately adjoining the rear is a paved stone patio with steps down to lawned gardens, stocked with an a
abundance of plants and shrubs, further patio, shed and greenhouse. The garden is bisected by the River Wey with access over the river to a further area of garden with mature trees and shrubs, backing onto fields.



Upwey is an attractive village and conservation area with many period buildings, situated in pleasant countryside, nestling in a Dorset down land valley about 3 miles north of Weymouth and 4 miles south of Dorchester. The area is home to the Upwey Wishing Well and Tea Room, St Laurence Church as well as two public houses and a mainline railway station to London/Waterloo and Bristol (Temple Meads).

A good range of amenities can be found within approximately 1 mile including a post office and general store at Broadwey, florist, veterinary clinic and a petrol station and sport centre at Redlands. There are both primary and secondary schools close by.

Both Weymouth and Dorchester town centres offers a comprehensive range of shops, marina as well as cultural, recreational and further educational facilities.

The area also provides the opportunity to enjoy a range of sailing and water sports activities, the sandy beaches and walks along the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline and the rolling country side that surrounds the area.
