DOMVS, in assoc. with Fine & Country, is delighted to offer this spectacularly positioned FOUR-BEDROOM COTTAGE in grounds of nearly ONE ACRE. Vendors say, “The property has been in the family for over 50 years and we have created many cherished memories here. The outside space is a real delight, and with the property not being listed, there's a real opportunity for the next owners to make the home their own.”
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'.

Welcome……to Primrose Cottage; a beautifully proportioned country residence positioned in an enviable plot of just under an acre set in the ever popular village of Upwey, on the edge of the rolling Dorset countryside.
With the front portion of the property dating back to the early 1800s, the cottage has character as well as charm so is the perfect opportunity to acquire a slice of Dorset history but without the challenges presented by a listed property. Throughout the years there have been various additions and extensions made to the property,
The open gravelled driveway leads past the garage and woodstore to the rear of the property where one enters. The generous UTILITY offers plenty of space for coat hanging and boot storage as well as space and plumbing for a washing machine. Through a door and step down in to the KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM, a light bathed room with multiple windows offering views to the front and side. The KITCHEN currently has a suite of base and eye level cupboards and drawers, along with a four ring gas hob with extractor over and integrated dishwasher. The space to the front is large enough for a good sized table and chairs with light cascading in from two sides.
Through to the HALLWAY which leads to the front door as well as having several rooms and the stairs radiating from it. The DINING ROOM/STUDY is a generous sized space with windows to the front and side, offering delightful views over the garden. Further back is the SITTING ROOM, a light and bright space, with feature fireplace and twin pairs of French Doors overlooking the spectacular garden and orchard. Back to the hallway and step up into the SHOWER ROOM with corner shower unit, WC and wash hand basin.
Stairs lead to the bright LANDING with all bedrooms spanning from it. At the far end lies BEDROOM ONE, a good sized double room with built in storage and views to the front of the property. Through a further door and up a step lies the ENSUITE BATHROOM with W/C, wash hand basin and bath with shower over. At the opposite end of the property is BEDROOM TWO, again a good sized double room with built in storage and views to the side and rear gardens. The ENSUITE BATHROOM has part tiled walls, bath, wash hand basin and WC. BEDROOM THREE Is a further double room to the front of the property and BEDROOM FOUR, a single room, sits adjacent to it.
The real jewel in the crown of Primrose Cottage is the wonderful outside space. Set in a plot of just under an acre, the space comprises a sunny patio, rose beds, apple orchard, vegetable garden with fruit cages, green house and two garden sheds. At the back of the plot is a delightful water garden. A mature hedge divides the front lawn that runs the width of the plot with gated access to the more secluded and private rear garden. At the very front, a dwarf wall delineates the boundary with a small gate leading to a pathway to the front door. This fantastic spacious garden is a true delight, and having such space around the property is a rarity in its location. The gravel driveway offers parking for several vehicles and the double garage to the side offers plentiful storage options, with a separate wood store abutting it.
