About the property
A CHARMING GRADE II LISTED THATCHED COTTAGE, BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED AND OOZING WITH CHARACTER
Situated along the prestigious Preston Road, this attractive thatched cottage has been lovingly renovated by the current owner whilst retaining the character and charm you would expect from a home of this age. Believed to date back to 1740, the cottage is Grade II listed and retains many original features throughout.
Deceptively spacious, this fine cottage offers generous living areas. The living room enjoys a dual aspect and features an inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove along with exposed wooden beams adding to the rooms charm. The dining room is an equally generous size with a fireplace housing an additional wood burning stove. The kitchen is beautifully presented with a good range of both wall and base units under worktops with an integral fridge/freezer and space for a freestanding range oven. Off the kitchen is a small hallway which provides access to a downstairs shower room and the utility room which was once the garage but has been converted by the current owner. The front section of the garage remains as a useful storage area.
The conservatory overlooks the garden and is a pleasant and light space enjoying feature wall lighting.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, the master bedroom being a particularly generous size. The family bathroom is very well presented with a modern bathroom suit comprising a bath, w/c, hand wash basin and heated towel rail, finished with contemporary tiling.
To the rear of the home is a southerly aspect and quite charming 'cottage style' garden. There is a patio area immediately abutting the home with the remainder of the garden laid to lawn, well stocked with mature shrubs and small hedges. There is also a side gate providing rear access and a useful log store.
The property is set within a highly popular residential location within Preston only a short distance from all the amenities the area offers including 2 convenience stores, a delicatessen, hairdressers, chemists and doctors surgery. There are also 3 public houses in the area, the Lookout café, Café Oasis and a Harvester meaning you will never be stuck for options for an evening out. There is a regular bus service into Weymouth and train stations in Weymouth Town Centre and Upwey provide main line rail links to London Waterloo.
Venturing into the seaside town of Weymouth is highly recommended. Famed for its 3 mile stretch of golden sands which have been acknowledged in 2017 by TripAdvisor as the best beach in the UK - reason enough to pay a visit, notwithstanding the bustling high street with a range of independent and high street retailers and the historic Harbour side with its array of public houses and bistros ideally positioned and ever popular with local residents and tourists alike for enjoying a glass of wine or meal on a summers evening.
