... to the best of both worlds.
This is a truly amazing house. Set in utterly captivating, old Dorset countryside, yet designed with the most modern, stunning, new architecture.
This light and airy four-bedroom house was designed with purpose, to integrate the inside with the outside, ensuring it blends seamlessly with its surroundings and creating the most wonderfully inspiring sense of space and light.
It sits in a leafy plot of just under two acres, enjoying a huge degree of privacy and joyfully located in one of the prettiest villages in this beautiful part of southern Dorset.
Walking in, you are, in a moment, engulfed by light and space. The pivot oak door is solid and handsome, and the accommodation is beautifully arranged across two floors, with a floating staircase and an upper floor balcony overlooking the soon-to-be landscaped gardens.
You certainly won't be short of friends, living here. The hi-tech kitchen is jam-packed with Miele appliances, which is always reassuring.
There is everything you need here, and more; a double-sided wood fire, which is a thing of beauty, a snug, a huge living/dining room, a gym, and also a study. There are even two ovens in the kitchen, and, of course, a downstairs cloakroom and utility room.
Truly, nothing has been overlooked. Touch-sensitive doors, a 21st Century kitchen, not one thing has been left out.
The gym – or possible fifth bedroom on the ground floor – comes with an en-suite shower room with back-lit mirror that incorporates a USB port; the integrated, concealed speakers allow you to charge any device.
The master bedroom, entered via a walk-through dressing room, is beyond romantic, with sliding doors onto a balcony.
There is a huge en-suite bathroom with a double-ended bath with central waterfall tap, and a leafy view of the garden. His-and-hers washbasins and a two-sided, walk-in shower only add to the sense of luxury and splendour.
As you would expect, each of the four bedrooms has an en-suite facility.
The lawns are extensive and private; approximately 1.3 acres with woodland behind. There is a large double garage, remotely operated, with room for a workshop.
The property enjoys remote-controlled, video-entry gates, as well as a sprinkler system.
Upwey is one of Dorset's prettiest, most unspoilt villages. 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 (4 miles in either direction). Weymouth, Dorchester and Upwey itself all have stations on the main line to London Waterloo. There is also a regular bus service locally, and a popular public house, 'The Old Ship Inn'.
Nearby, excellent sporting facilities abound. Beautiful Ringstead Bay is moments away as is Weymouth & Portland's National Sailing Acadamy. Moreover, there is first-rate fishing to be found on the rivers Frome and Piddle, golf at Wareham, Dorchester, Parkstone and Broadstone, and horse racing at Wincanton, Exeter, Salisbury and Bath.
HOW TO GET HERE
From Dorchester, take the A354 Weymouth relief road. Go over the Ridgeway and take the first turning on the left to Upwey. Follow signs to Upwey, travelling down 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. Full height solid timber gates mark the entrance.
