Outstanding and striking architect designed contemporary house in a spacious plot on the edge of this sought after village.

Description

Weywood is a superb, striking architect designed contemporary house with part stone, part wooden clad elevations and is situated in an attractive level plot extending to about 1.3 acres in this most popular of villages. The house has been built to a superb standard with spacious, flexible accommodation arranged over two floors with large expanses of glass giving enormous amounts of light internally. A spacious reception hall with floating staircase to the first floor leads through to a large sitting room with glass screen framing views to the garden and a fireplace divides the room from a dining area with a further large glazed screen and sliding doors open onto a terrace. Also on the ground floor is a high specification kitchen with island and an excellent range of storage units, fitted ovens, fridge and freezer. On the first floor an impressive glazed gallery overlooks the sitting room and provides the house with a tremendous feeling of space and light.

Outside
The property is approached from a village lane via electronically operated gates from where a long drive leads to the front of the property, where there is ample parking and access to a double garage. The setting is private and secluded, particularly in the summer months when the surrounding mature trees are in full leaf and the gardens, which originally formed part of the adjoining property, offer further scope for landscaping. To the side and rear of the property in particular there are pleasant views over the surrounding countryside and the master bedroom and balcony make best use of these views as well.

Location

The property is nestled quietly within this area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the valley of the Dorset Ridgeway.

The River Wey meanders gently through this picturesque village, most well known for the romantic setting of Upwey Wishing Well at The Spring Head; a favourite place of King George III.

Whilst enjoying village living, it is also a practical location within close proximity of the wide ranging facilities of the seaside resort of Weymouth and the County town of Dorchester (four miles in either direction).

Weymouth, Dorchester and Upwey itself all have stations on the mainline to London Waterloo.

There is also a regular bus service locally and a popular public house, The Old Ship Inn.

Square Footage: 3,975 sq ft
Acreage: 1.4 Acres

From Dorchester, take the A354 to Weymouth. Go over the Ridgeway and take the first turning on the left to Upwey. Follow signs to Upwey, travelling down the hill. Take the next right into Elwell Street and turn left at the T-junction. The property is located a few hundred yards further along on the left hand side, with full height solid timber gates at its entrance.
