Austin Estate Agents are pleased to offer for sale this beautiful character cottage, which is part of Ropers Buildings, a row of cottages that were built approximately 200 years ago and set back from the Dorchester Road in Upwey.
The lounge / diner is a good-sized room which overlooks the delightful cottage garden with a feature fireplace to the centre that enhances the room's appeal. An enclosed staircase ascends to the first floor.
The kitchen is a good mixture of old and new. Whilst it is fitted with a modern range of matching eye level and base units, features contemporary metro tiling and enjoys an integrated hob, oven and stylish extractor, it is still in keeping with the character of the cottage. This is accentuated by the open shelving along one wall. Other quirky features to the kitchen area are extra high ceilings with a skylight providing wonderful natural light. The kitchen has the added advantage of a back door giving access to the rear of the cottage.
The ground floor bathroom features a modern suite comprising a low-level WC, a pedestal wash hand basin pedestal and a panelled bath with complementary tiling.
The first floor offers two bedrooms. Bedroom one boasts a range of built-in wardrobes with delightful views over the front garden. Access to the second bedroom is through bedroom one and also enjoys views over the front garden.
Externally, the cottages are accessed via a quaint pathway, situated at the rear of housing on the Dorchester Road and approximately 40 foot from the Royal Standard public house. A right-of-way across the cottages gardens provides access to the cottage and garden. The garden has been well maintained and is predominately laid to lawn with attractive plants and shrubs to borders and a patio adjacent to the cottage.
The cottage is situated in the popular village of Upwey. Local shops and amenities are nearby including bus services to Weymouth and Dorchester. This lovely property is within the catchment area of the highly regarded primary school of St Nicholas & St Laurence. Transport links are favourable with the Weymouth relief road and the mainline station, with links to London and Bristol, both being a short drive away.
