The Rose is a delightful detached property, accessed via a private drive, adjacent to a tranquil meadow in a sought-after, and exclusive, residential location. The design of the property has been carefully considered and is immaculately presented, thus we strongly advise viewing to appreciate its many impeccable features and benefits.
On the ground floor, you are first met by the light and spacious entrance hallway, which has the added advantage of a modern cloakroom. From here, the study, sitting/dining room and the kitchen/breakfast room can be accessed. The study is a delightfully peaceful room with stunning views over the meadow. The sitting/dining room has large dual aspect windows, which fill the room with an abundance of natural light. To the rear of the room are a pair of French doors which open up on to a pleasant sun terrace, perfect for summer entertaining, and further on to the rear garden. The modern kitchen/breakfast room is in immaculate condition with a range of integral appliances and fitted units, which are topped with beautiful solid wood worktops.
On the first floor, the landing leads on to all four bedrooms and the family bathroom. The generously sized master bedroom, situated to the front of the property, offers attractive views over the tranquil surroundings. The room further benefits from an en suite, comprising a hand wash basin, low level WC and shower cubicle. The spacious second bedroom also benefits from an en suite, with all the same features. The third and fourth bedrooms, which are both doubles and are situated to the front and rear respectively, both have beautiful views. The lavish family bathroom has been expertly fitted with a perfectly presented bath with hand-held shower, low level WC, wash hand basin and a heated towel rail.
To the exterior, both the front and rear gardens have been kept in exemplary condition. At the front of the property, the independent driveway provides off-road parking and leads to the integral garage. A small path winds through the front lawn and passed a delightful array of plants to the entrance of the property. The sun trap rear garden can be accessed by a gate from the side of this stunning property and is mainly laid to lawn but also has a patio area.
The property is adjacent to the beautiful Lorton Meadows and is situated in the quaint area of Broadwey, a short drive from central Weymouth and Dorchester. The area is perfect for countryside walks but also benefits from a range of independent shops, public houses, churches and schools all being nearby. Upwey Train Station is only 0.2 miles away and has regular direct services to London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads respectively.
The chance to view such an outstanding property should not be missed, so please do not hesitate in contacting Austin Estate Agents for more information or to book an appointment.
We believe our home to be an idyllic private residence situated on the edge of Lorton Meadows, which is a haven of peaceful green meadows, hedgerows and woodland. This reserve offers a chance to experience some fabulous wildlife.
In addition to the reserve; our home looks out on to the privately owned meadow. An organic space that provides a natural haven for a large variety of wildlife and a stimulus for adventure for children and adults alike!
Every morning we wake up to birds singing with the occasional visit from deer which is always a magical moment. During the day Woodpeckers, Pheasants and a vast variety of birds keep us amused. When the sun goes down, it’s a great time to gaze at the stars, and enjoy the company of Bats, moths and the local Tawny owl.
Within a stones throw from the property are a primary and secondary school, with an outstanding Ofsted report. The school offers gym facilities and a variety of fitness classes to the public.
After just a short stroll along Lorton Lane you will be greeted by horses, play parks, riverwalks, bridal paths and the Dorset Wildlife Trust Centre.
We have loved living here over the years, although the house is large it always feels warm, cosy and relaxing. There is a real sense of community spirit within the Close. We get together several times a year to celebrate special occasions, Bonfire Night is always a wonderful evening.
As a family, our favourite pastime is getting out in the fresh country air. The woods offer a perfect setting for outdoor adventure play for children to explore, build dens and create happy memories.
