CLICK ON OUR VIRTUAL TOUR. DOMVS, in association with Fine & Country, are delighted to introduce this AWARD-WINNING TRULY INSPIRATIONAL home. Set to become an iconic house of the future, it offers approx 7,860 sq. ft. of accommodation including a detached ANNEXE. Within leafy, private grounds of approx TWO ACRES.
This inspirational home, stunning in its simplicity of design, is set to become an iconic house of the future. Designed by world-renowned architects (wkkarchitects.com), it was built in 2000 and subsequently won an award in 2002 from Weymouth Civic Society. Designed 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 approximately two acres, enjoying a high degree of privacy and located in one of the prettiest villages in the area.
The MAIN HOUSE accommodation is arranged across two floors, one with access to decking, and the other to the upper floor balcony overlooking the landscaped gardens. Most of the principal rooms are south and west facing, and the undoubted feature of the property is the spectacular atrium forming the centrepiece. Equally, the inviting pool room - glimpsed from the ground floor - forms a wonderful entertainment space.
In summary, the accommodation on the GROUND FLOOR provides the atrium/sitting room, which is almost 2,000 sq. ft. in size (and has rain sensitive overhead windows, and a contemporary living flame gas fire accessed from both sides of the chimney breast). The remaining rooms comprise a snug, family room and study, together with a cloakroom and kitchen (fitted with two ovens, a microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and five-burner gas hob). The extensive pool room, with its own air conditioning, has a utility room incorporating a wet room. There is also a separate boiler room.
A circular staircase and gallery link to the FIRST FLOOR, where there are four bedrooms (including an enchanting turret room), each with its own private shower or bathroom facility.
Adjacent to the main house is the curved ANNEXE, beautifully formed to complement the existing design, and providing a one bedroom detached unit with kitchen/sitting room with triple doors to the garden; a delightful addition.
Electronically-controlled gates with video entry lead to the circular driveway where there is considerable parking space and a DOUBLE GARAGE.
The EXTENSIVE LANDSCAPED GARDENS follow the theme of simplicity, and have been carefully designed to create tranquil spaces and seating areas to follow the sun. A bog garden with timber bridge is adjacent to the south-facing terrace, a small area of woodland lies to the rear, and a number of graceful mature trees intersperse the level lawn.
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'.
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.
