Mill Street, Weymouth, Dorset DT3


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A substantial period residence delightfully situated in one of Weymouth's premier locations and within easy access to both Weymouth and Dorchester.

Constructed with attractive stone elevations under a slate roof and listed Grade ll of architectural or historic importance, South Mill is an important element in the street, retaining the original cast-iron casements to the street front and a reminder of former industrial activity, set just up from the River Wey. The ground floor is 18th century and was originally the stables for North Mill opposite. The two upper floors were constructed in 1846 and connected to North Mill by a second floor footbridge.

The accommodation is substantial and extremely versatile, being arranged over three floors. On the ground floor a tiled hallway leads into two reception rooms both with a double aspect and beamed ceilings. One is currently used as a studio with tiled flooring, side door to integral garage and door leading out to the rear garden. The second reception room again has tiled floorings and utility cupboard, housing a Worcester gas fired boiler.

On the first floor, a spacious landing with double aspect and stripped wood flooring provides access via double glazed doors onto a decorative wrought iron Juliette Balcony, constructed in the first half of the 20th century and recently partially reconstructed. There are three double bedrooms on this floor, with the main bedroom having an en-suite bathroom together with a nursery and steps with interconnecting door to a double aspect bedroom. A well appointed shower room is also situated on this floor.

The second floor accommodation is a particular feature of the house. A landing with rear aspect window enjoys delightful south facing views and leads to an impressive double aspect sitting room with vaulted and beamed ceilings with parquet flooring and fireplace (gas fire not connected). A door opens to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of limed oak wall and floor cupboards. French doors open onto the footbridge over which is a decorative gabbled hauling way. A further double bedroom with rear aspect has the benefit of a further en-suite bathroom and airing cupboard.

Outside is on road parking directly outside the house, leading to an integral garage with power and light. To the side is an area of shrubs and plants. The rear courtyard garden enjoys a favoured south facing aspect and mainly paved with shrub borders and a pedestrian rear access.

South Mill is situated in an attractive setting close to the River Wey and on the edge of Upwey village and open countryside. Upwey is an attractive village and conservation area with many period buildings, situated in pleasant countryside, nestling in a Dorset down land valley about 3 miles north of Weymouth and 4 miles south of Dorchester. The area is home to the Upwey Wishing Well and Tea Room, St Laurence Church as well as two public houses and a mainline railway station to London/Waterloo and Bristol/Temple Meads.

A good range of amenities can be found within approximately 1 mile including a post office and general store at Broadwey, florist, veterinary clinic and a petrol station and sport centre at Redlands. There are both primary and secondary schools close by.

Both Weymouth and Dorchester town centres offer a comprehensive range of shops, marina as well as cultural, recreational and further educational facilities.

The area also provides the opportunity to enjoy a range of sailing and water sports activities, the sandy beaches and walks along the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline and the rolling country side that surrounds the area.
