DOMVS, in assoc. with Fine & Country, is delighted to present this charming cottage enjoying an ENCHANTING SETTING in approximately ¾ of an acre, within the rural landscape of “The Fleet” just outside Weymouth. An opportunity not to be missed by those who enjoy country walks near the sea, amidst peace and tranquillity.

Despite the ambience of rural tranquillity, the hamlet is advantageously positioned within easy reach of both Weymouth and the country town of Dorchester. The mainline railway station at nearby Upwey offers a journey time to London Waterloo of approximately 2.5 hours.

The property is approached via the property’s stunning front garden, leading past mature flower beds, and the productive garden leading to the front door. The ENTRANCE HALL offers access to all ground floor accommodation, in addition to an airing cupboard, under stair storage, and a cloakroom complete with WC and hand-wash basin.
The capacious KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM is a wonderfully light room, with views of the garden and vistas beyond to three sides, and French doors at the end of the room opening onto the patio that abuts the property on the southerly aspect. The room is well-equipped, with integrated microwave, double oven and electric hob, and spaces for a dish-washer and a free-standing fridge. The room easily accommodates a generous dining area. The UTILITY ROOM, has space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier, further space for additional white goods, work surface and an alternative access to the rear garden.
The SITTING ROOM is another naturally light room. This room formed part of the original cottage before it was extended, and character features remain, including the picture rails that adorn each wall. The inset wood burner with flagstone hearth is another feature that benefits this triple aspect room. The DINING ROOM is part of a recent extension, particularly well-designed for entertaining with a double aspect with the large windows that create considerable light. The STUDY is the perfect home office, but could be an additional reception or bedroom should it be desired.
From the hallway, stairs rise to the FIRST FLOOR landing, where there is an extensive airing cupboard. There are 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on this floor. BEDROOM 1 is a stunning double room, with beautiful views, and a real feeling of space afforded firstly by the room’s dimensions and the vaulted ceilings with timber beams. BEDROOM 2 is a well-proportioned room with unrivalled views, and a balcony facing the rear garden. The ENSUITE comprises a shower cubicle, WC and hand-wash basin. BEDROOMS 3 and 4 are both double rooms, the former to the front and latter to the rear aspect, and BEDROOM 5 is a single room to the rear. The FAMILY BATHROOM has bath and shower facilities, with wash-hand basin, WC and heated towel rail.
There is plentiful parking on the drive for 4+ cars with a timber-framed CAR-PORT with solar PV panels on the south facing roof. The front garden is beautifully mature, complete with various vegetable patches, greenhouse and fruit net area. The southerly front garden features a patio area that abuts the French doors from the kitchen. To the rear of the property, a winding path passes various fruit trees and flower beds before reaching a raised decked area, the most wonderful position to enjoy views of Chesil beach in the distance. A timber gate beyond this leads to a a wild garden, the summit of which enjoys the most superb views of the Fleet over neighbouring fields.
