This property really will make the perfect family home, the whole house has a really warm and welcoming feel and each of the rooms has its own unique character and charm. It is a very pretty house; it has a superb feeling of both light and space throughout. The outside space only adds to the appeal.
Built in 2009, this extremely attractive home enjoys an enviable tucked-away location right on the edge of the well-served town of Upton. "During our property search ten years ago, we were actually interested in another house, but our estate agent persuaded us to come and take a look at this one," says the owner. "The minute my wife and I set foot on the property we were absolutely blown away; within twenty minutes we'd made an offer. It's a beautiful looking house with a big garden and it sits on a quiet cul-de-sac right on the edge of Upton, but one of the standout features has to be the spectacular views. We look out across woodland in one direction and vast swathes of reed beds in the other, beyond which we can see the sea as well as the opposite shore and Purbeck hills behind! It's a stunning environment and a real haven for wildlife."
"We were the first to own the house and it was just lovely when we came here, but over time we've made changes to enhance it. The biggest transformation came with the conversion of the original integrated garage into a really stylish dining-cum-games room - the top comes off the dining table to reveal our pool table; it's great to have a large room where you can play pool without banging against the walls with our cues. All in all, it's a spacious house, well laid out and modern in design, with plenty of storage space. I'd say it has a timeless quality, which is something else that appealed to us when we first came to view it. It's an easy house to entertain in, and it has a warm and welcoming feel throughout."
"The garden is south facing and is a great size so when the weather is warm we can be out there having a game of boules or croquet, or simply sitting and relaxing and enjoying the tranquillity of it all," continues the owner. "It's mainly laid to lawn but with a flower border near the house, as well as a tucked away area that I've deliberately kept wild so it attracts hedgehogs, bees and butterflies. We frequently have visits from the local pheasants who enjoy roaming around the rest of the garden and last Christmas day we woke up to see two fox cubs playing on the lawn for over an hour. We regularly see deer just beyond our fence as well as woodpeckers and herons and the occasional bird of prey. Bird watchers are occasionally seen walking down towards the shoreline with all their kit, though being a cul-de-sac and private road, we enjoy a great deal of privacy. It's a lovely space and the outlook is just wonderful."
"In terms of shops and amenities we have everything we need within very easy reach, but it's the sheer beauty and varied nature of the environment that surrounds us that I've enjoyed most. We're spoilt for choice in terms of beautiful walks as we're close to the coast, some beautiful woodland and the rolling farmland that borders Upton. We're also close to a number of beaches and stretches of coastline that are off the radar of the tourists who flock to nearby areas during the summer months."
"Another change we made to the house was to convert one of the bedrooms into a dressing room - however it could easily be converted back - which means that the master bedroom itself is much more spacious." "The house has been a wonderful home, but it will be the setting and those views that I'll miss most when we leave," says the owner. "Just looking out of the window is a real treat, and when we open the blinds in the morning with the view and the wildlife changing with the seasons, we're never quite sure what we'll see. It might be the foxes playing on the lawn, a herd of deer by the shoreline or a huge flock of birds. It's a very special place and we will take many happy memories with us when the time comes to leave."*
