A substantial country home benefitting from an additional (revenue generating) 1 bed apartment, set in beautiful gardens in one of West Dorset's most sought after village and surrounded by glorious countryside. EPC Band E.

THE PROPERTY

51 Uploders is a very impressive village home, with the added benefit of a one bed apartment, set in beautiful landscaped gardens in one of West Dorset's most sought after villages and surrounded by glorious countryside. It is the major portion of two former cottages believed to date back to the 19th Century and subject to substantial enlargement in 1973. The main elevations are of attractive natural stone.

Under the current ownership since 2010, the property has benefitted from extensive, sympathetic refurbishment/upgrading to a very high standard together with the creation of the one bed apartment, currently used as a holiday let (although it could be equally suited as a guest suite, for long term letting, for a dependant relative or home office etc.).

The comprehensive and impressive number of improvements include a bespoke quality kitchen by Charles Yorke, the creation of an en-suite quality bathroom, new downstairs bathroom, part window replacement and extensive landscaping. The modern amenities include oil fired central heating, a security alarm system and an oil fired Aga.

The accommodation is very well presented, extensive and versatile to suit a whole range of buyers and still retains a wealth of character features including exposed beams, a window seat, cottage doors and flagstone flooring.

The property was featured in the magazines 25 Most Beautiful Homes, House Beautiful and Dorset. Copies are available on request.

THE MAIN HOUSE

On the ground floor, an ornate porch leads to a large L-Shaped kitchen/dining room with Silestone worktops and extensive appliances (Siemen's electric oven, gas hob, warming oven and coffee maker plus Fisher and Paykel dishwasher along with an oil fired Aga and Zanussi fridge freezer, a wine store and a household cupboard), a lovely Snug with secondary stairs, inner and side halls plus bedroom 4 with en-suite bathroom.

On the first floor, there is a large landing with loft access, a good sized sitting room with vaulted beamed ceiling, three bedrooms, an impressive en-suite bathroom/shower room and an additional bathroom.

THE APARTMENT/HOLIDAY LET

The apartment (marketed as Loft by the Pond) has also been created to a very high standard and is successfully let generating a very impressive revenue (the sellers only let for a maximum of 30 weeks per annum and there is excellent potential to grow the revenue). It has its own oil fired central heating system and the accommodation provides an inner hall, open plan living room/kitchen diner, with quality fitted kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom.

OUTSIDE

The gardens are an outstanding feature of the property being beautifully landscaped, well planted, secluded and enjoying lovely country views. There is also generous parking facilities plus extensive garaging (triple and single), a greenhouse and a garden shed.

Electric double timber gates lead onto a long tarmac driveway with generous turning and parking areas.

Under the apartment, is a triple sized garage with large twin roller doors (one remote control) together with an attached wood store. Within the main house is also a good sized integral garage with utility area (offering potential for additional living space if required).

The owners have spent considerable time and money creating the stunning landscaped gardens which are extremely well planted with a whole array of plants, shrubs and specimen trees plus lawn, seating areas and a koi pond.

SITUATION

The property is pleasantly located on the edge of Uploders in the beautiful Asker Valley. The village rates highly amongst the many desirable villages in West Dorset, owing to its unspoilt street scenes, country atmosphere and proximity to Bridport town and the Jurassic Coast. Within the village there is a well regarded pub, The Crown Inn, and the neighbouring village of Loders benefits from a primary school and a pub of its own. West Dorset as a whole is justifiably designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and there are superb walking opportunities across the glorious countryside straight from the door, and the South West Coast Path can easily be joined at any of the nearby beaches.

The thriving market town of Bridport is easily accessible, and offering a broad range of business, shopping, leisure, and cultural facilities. The popular twice weekly market is held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The county town of Dorchester is also within easy reach with a mainline rail service to London Waterloo.
