CLICK ON OUR GUIDED VIRTUAL TOUR. DOMVS is pleased to offer this BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED CHARACTER BARN which has been lovingly maintained. Vendor says "We have had holiday makers staying here for years, they all comment on how peaceful it is. We agree!"
The property is nestled quietly on the edge of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the valley of the Dorset Ridgeway, with footpaths in very close proximity reaching various beauty spots of the area. 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'.

With some parts of the building dating back to the 16th century, Cobblestone House offers the rare opportunity to acquire a little piece of Dorset history, without the challenge of a listed building. The layout of the property, despite its age, benefits the modern family lifestyle with a dedicated boot room, utility space and open plan kitchen/ dining room.
The oak front door opens to a light, airy ENTRANCE HALL with a limestone flooring and double turn-around oak staircase. The open-plan, double aspect KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM offers a range of painted, solid timber wall and base units and a granite worktop and upstand on each surface with the exception of the island, which benefits from a contrasting oak worktop. Built-in appliances include a double oven and electric hob with extractor fan over, a dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Beyond this, an area of the house rich with storage options, leads towards another door entering the property into the BOOT ROOM. On the way through there are three separate utility spaces, the largest incorporating a CLOAKROOM. The generous, double aspect SITTING ROOM enjoys a raised fireplace with wood burner and feature mantel. The room had previously been utilised as a ground floor bedroom, and should this appeal, is particularly convenient given the SHOWER ROOM adjacent to its entrance, complete with walk-in shower, WC, hand-wash basin and heated towel rail.
Returning to the hallway, the staircase rises and turns to a LANDING which offers access to all further rooms, and the loft hatch which accesses an excellent, boarded storage space. The MASTER BEDROOM enjoys double aspect views of the surrounding countryside, the full width of the house, enjoying a wealth of space, and a large stone fireplace with contemporary wood burner inset. The vaulted ceilings framed by ancient timber beams accentuate the feeling of space and character. BEDROOM TWO is a double room, offering a complete wall of built-in double wardrobes, and BEDROOM THREE is a further double room, a pleasant space to the front of the property. BEDROOM FOUR is a twin room overlooking the property's garden. The FAMILY BATHROOM has a panelled bath with shower above, WC and wash-hand basin.
Accessed via the garden, is the STUDIO. This light filled room is a versatile space with views of the stunning countryside surrounding the property, with French windows accessing a balcony to one end, and a CLOAKROOM to the other.
A gravelled driveway leads to PARKING, which sits adjacent to the property's entrance. The well-designed cottage garden has been lovingly maintained, enjoying a variety of mature shrubs and plants bordering an area of lawn. Steps rise from here to the patio abutting the property, a lovely outdoor dining area enjoying a southern aspect. The DOUBLE GARAGE sits beneath the STUDIO and is accessed further down the drive.
