With such a wonderfully located house, this property offers considerable scope to create a most appealing family home in an enviable plot, so close to the amenities of Weymouth and Dorchester: an opportunity which rarely presents itself.
Situated on the edge of Radipole Village, within a plot immediately surrounding the property of approximately 1.25 acres, with a paddock of approximately 5.5 acres, the accommodation currently offers 3 bedrooms, but, given the size and position of the plot, could easily be extended (subject to any necessary permissions).
Parking in the Easterly portion of the property, a picturesque path bordered by mature flower beds leads to the front door. The extensive accommodation found within begins with the ENTRANCE HALL, offering stairs to the first floor and a CLOAKROOM, with WC and hand-wash basin. The accommodation spans to both wings of the property, with the Westerly portion beginning with the SITTING ROOM. This extremely spacious room is light and airy, extended over time to incorporate a further space that leads to the CONSERVATORY, that enjoys superb views of the surrounding garden. Returning to the entrance hall, doors enter into the STUDY, which could be otherwise utilised as a further bedroom, DINING ROOM and BREAKFAST ROOM. The dining room is another well-proportioned room and another enviably light space. The adjoining breakfast room is versatile, and a lovely social room with it being so close to the kitchen. The KITCHEN itself is capacious and light, with a breakfast bar adjacent to sliding doors opening into the garden. Benefitting from a wide range of storage options, the kitchen is also complete with integrated appliances including a Miele dishwasher, double eye-level oven, microwave and four ring hob. The adjascent UTILITY ROOM is spacious with worktop and a range of storage options, next door to a GROUND FLOOR SHOWER ROOM, with shower cubicle, WC and hand-wash basin.
Upstairs, as you’d expect, the bedrooms are well proportioned, and in two of the three bedrooms, are served by equally sizeable en-suites. The MASTER BEDROOM is very generous, with a triple aspect. The accompanying EN-SUITE is complete with a shower cubicle, WC and hand-wash basin. BEDROOM TWO is another well-proportioned room with a further EN-SUITE, benefitting from a corner bath, WC and hand-wash basin. BEDROOM THREE is another double room, served by the FAMILY BATHROOM, with corner bath, WC and hand-wash basin, and an additional cloakroom with WC and hand-wash basin.
A most appealing aspect of Thatchcombe, is it’s accompanying garden and approximately 5.5 acre paddock. Upon entering the grounds of the property, the parking area also accesses the garage, unusually characterful for such a functional building, with a thatched roof, and first floor storage beneath it. The surrounding garden is exquisitely maintained with mature plants and shrubs to each aspect. The Orchard is a particularly appealing feature, extending northward of the beautiful and mature pond. On the opposite side of this generous plot, a driveway leads to the stable and paddock. In total there are five stables, and additional garaging, with the paddock accessed from just beyond.
The property is ideally positioned just to the north of Weymouth and with good road access, via the new bypass, to the County town of Dorchester. Weymouth town is within easy cycling and reasonable walking distance along Radipole Park Drive with its playing field, tennis courts and quiet landscaped gardens. The local RSPB reserve in Radipole is just a stones throw from the property, a popular destination for the public and ornithologists alike. The property falls within the catchment area of the highly regarded Radipole Primary School. Local amenities include a Morrisons & Sainsburys supermarket, butchers, hairdressers, beauty salon and public house. The nearby Weymouth Gateway development has a filling station, restaurant and hotel with more leisure and business units planned. Weymouth is a lively seaside resort with a large sandy beach and picturesque inner harbour surrounded by a number of shops, eateries and bars.
