DOMVS, in association with Fine & Country, is delighted to offer this fine example of a Victorian mansion house with OUTSTANDING SEA VIEWS, which has been completely rebuilt to modern-day standards. The extremely high specification is evident throughout, with both exterior and interior spaces being professionally designed.
An outstanding example of a Victorian mansion house built in 1890 of natural stone elevations under a pitched clay tiled roof, with some partial tile-hung elevations. Particularly impressive architectural features include a decoratively carved parapet forming the entrance, impressive solid stone perpendicular arched doorways, trefoil windows and an octagonal glass-sided turret enjoying uninterrupted views out to sea.
Having now been carefully restored to reflect modern-day building standards, this home shows great attention to detail, and now provides all the insulation qualities, triple glazing, coving and high quality specification - particularly with regard to the sanitary ware and kitchen - which befits a property of this stature.
At ground level, the RECEPTION HALL has a round circular window to add decorative interest; the adjacent CLOAKROOM has appealing original stained glass windows. It also has a WC, hand-wash basin and utility cupboard including plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A glazed door leads from the reception hall through the connecting archway to the grand DINING HALL, which creates an immediate statement with its spacious entertaining area and sweeping intricately carved original timber staircase leading to the galleried landing on the first floor.
The remaining accommodation includes the SITTING ROOM, which enjoys a sunny westerly-facing aspect and has an elegantly designed marble fireplace with a woodburner and oiled oak flooring. French doors lead to the professionally designed rear garden.
The KITCHEN is undoubtedly an impressive room; not only does it enjoy sea views through the French doors leading to the 'morning coffee' terrace, but also enjoys those same views from the breakfast area of the room. The bespoke units were especially designed given the room's high ceiling and, set against the polished oak flooring, form an elegant and extremely functional range of timber base and wall units with considerable storage. Benefiting from Miele appliances which include a double oven as well as a single oven with microwave; wine fridge, under-counter freezer; full height fridge; instant boiling hot water tap; and dishwasher there is also a Siemens induction hob. In addition, there is a pull-out larder, and separate dresser unit together with a central island beautifully complementing the arrangement. The solid marble work surfaces add to the luxurious feel.
The FIRST FLOOR with a spacious landing has two bedrooms, each with an en-suite facility. The MASTER BEDROOM takes full advantage of the extensive sea views and, once more, has been tastefully designed to provide a generous space with bespoke mirrored wardrobes especially designed for this room. The EN-SUITE BATHROOM with marble tiling and underfloor heating has a walk-in shower, free-standing oval stone bath facing the sea view, Gerberit Monolith Aquaclean bidet WC, and a unit with inset stone wash-hand basin and mirror. BEDROOM TWO has a double aspect and a view of the rear garden and is, again, an elegant room with the traditional high ceiling. There is a large storage cupboard/room and a EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM with underfloor heating, WC, and wash-hand basin.
The SECOND FLOOR has two more bedrooms, one with an en-suite facility, and also a family bathroom. BEDROOM THREE enjoys sea views from both the bedroom itself and from the special 'TOWER ROOM' within the octagonal seaward turre,t enjoying 180-degree sea views. With its built-in large window seat, it is a wonderful hide-away retreat. This bedroom also has an EN-SUITE facility with underfloor heating, corner shower unit, WC and vanity unit with wash-hand basin. BEDROOM FOUR, another large room with built-in storage, overlooks the rear across the roof tops beyond. The adjacent BATHROOM has underfloor heating, bath, WC, and wash-hand basin.
The whole property has been fitted out with a high tech security system which you can control and monitor via your mobile phone even when overseas.
Both front and rear have been professionally designed by a Chelsea Flower Show medal winner. The front allows for plentiful parking, with soft and hard landscaping creating a most appealing entrance. The rear is visually equally as appealing, and has created the perfect space for outside entertaining, yet with low maintenance in mind. From the rear garden there is a gate that leads to the basement entrance, the basement has been fitted out as a wine store and there is also room for storage.
This unique property enjoys an enviable position on Weymouth's exclusive Greenhill, with stunning panoramic views over Weymouth Bay and the Jurassic Coastline. Within walking distance of Weymouth with its renowned sandy beaches, the Promenade, its harbour,restaurants, cafes and al fresco dining with shopping facilities within the town centre.
