*3D virtual tour available.* A beautifully presented, substantial five bedroom edwardian home in Upwey, equidistant from both Weymouth and Dorchester.

The Village is home to a Parish Church dating back to the 13th Century, a bus route to either Weymouth or Dorchester town centres and many other attractions and walks including Upwey Wishing Well; the sources of The River Wey, which flows through the village.

This large character property is moments from the open countryside yet still ideally located close to many amenities including schools, some local shops and Upwey train station with a direct link to London Waterloo.

This stunning home has undergone extensive renovations whilst retaining many period features including fireplaces, cornice ceilings and picture rails offering versatile accommodation throughout comprising entrance porch with mosaic tiled floor, welcoming hallway, three reception rooms, sun room, large fully integrated kitchen and a bathroom. To the first floor are five bedrooms, one benefiting an en-suite, and family bathroom. Externally the property offers large mature gardens mainly being lawned with a variety of planting, trees, shrubs and raised vegetable plots.

Vendors CommentsWe have enjoyed living in this large Edwardian house for almost thirty years. Being now retired, our children have homes of their own and it is time to move to somewhere smaller. Over the years the property has been modernised and extended with much care being taken to retain the many period features. We hope to remain in the area and consider the Upwey locality to have many advantages including easy access to the nearby countryside, Dorchester and further afield.
