Property description

The house is situated down a private no-through road towards the rear of a natural bowl in the landscape, backing onto mature broad leaf woodland, which provides a delightful and elevated setting akin to a natural amphitheatre, with the garden and grounds stretching out in front with a nature reserve and the sea beyond. EPC:G

There are are four principal reception rooms leading off the reception hall, all with elegant proportions. The large kitchen/breakfast room is illuminated by a large skylight and has windows on two sides including French windows opening onto a gravelled courtyard, and is fitted with an oil-fired 4 oven AGA. One of the many reception rooms currently serves as a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. Below is a generous suite of cellars including traditional wine bins and billiard room.

The self-contained annexe connects via the study and has its own front door, hall, living room with kitchen area and en-suite double bedroom.

Upstairs, the large master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with three further double bedrooms (two with en-suite facilities), family bathroom and separate WC. Three secondary bedrooms on the second floor open onto a broad landing.

The former coach house and stables have been converted to create a charming detached three bedroom cottage within its own, very pretty, walled garden.

The formal garden and park-like grounds extend around three sides of the house amounting to about 11.3 acres (please see agents' note in the brochure), with areas of lawn extending out on two sides to a large paved terrace, with permanent pasture beyond.

Below the house is an attractive metal gazebo beside an ancient Mulberry tree. The garden is well shielded by several, mature specimen trees.

Upwey railway station 0.9 mile (Waterloo 2 hours 50 minutes), Weymouth 2.9 miles. Dorchester 6 miles. Bournemouth Airport 36.3 miles.

The house is situated in a rural and private position, looking out across the Dorset Wildlife Trust's Lorton Valley and the Lodmoor RSPB reserve, with the Jurassic Coast, just 1.5 miles away.

There are several local convenience stores close by and the centre of Weymouth, which has a wide selection of shops and amenities including a hospital, is just 2.9 miles away. For a wider choice of shops the larger centres of Bournemouth, Southampton and Exeter are all within a reasonable driving distance.

Dorset is renowned for offering a wide choice of excellent private schools including Bryanston, Milton Abbey, the Sherborne Schools, Canford and Leweston. There is also good local state schooling provision at both primary and secondary level.

Upwey train station is only a 10 minute walk from the house. Bournemouth Airport is about 36 miles away.
