DOMVS in association with Fine & Country is delighted to present this intriguing character property (over 3,000 ft2), which is peacefully located down a PRIVATE LANE with SEA VIEWS towards Portland - a touch of country house, yet close to the town. With large ground floor accommodation, it is perfect for those seeking something different, enjoying large entertaining spaces without compromise.
This detached, character property has unique features throughout, set in the most enviable of positions. Delivering flexible accommodation of over 3,000 ft2, the property offers space in abundance, both inside and out, with the luxury of a sea view and character features. A sense of country house meets town, meets sea; an intriguing combination.
The ENTRANCE HALL is warm and welcoming with panelled timber walls and a stone archway giving an indication of the character accommodation ahead. A solid timber staircase rises from this space to the first floor. The RECEPTION AREA extends into a useful space with a bay window overlooking the front of the property. Currently housing a small HOME OFFICE, it could easily be transformed into a self-contained room if required. The remainder of the accommodation on the ground floor includes a large formal DINING ROOM with an adjoining CONSERVATORY, which has a tiled floor and enjoys views of Portland in the distance. Adjacent to the dining room is a generous SITTING ROOM (which could also easily be separated with its own individual access); a wood burner within Italian marble fireplace creates a cosy focal point, with a window seat overlooking the garden adding further interest.
A further RECEPTION ROOM/POTENTIAL GUEST BEDROOM provides a flexible area that could be used for whatever purpose required, whether it be a guest bedroom or additional living space. It also has the further advantage of French doors opening out to a patio and garden. The KITCHEN/ BREAKFAST ROOM is a splendid entertaining space, with a breakfast area to one end and an abundance of worktop and storage space to the other. With tiled flooring throughout, solid wood fittings and granite counter tops, the room is finished to a high standard and, with convenience in mind, also features an island unit. A gas powered Range cooker sits opposite space for a double fridge/freezer, with an integrated dishwasher discreetly hidden from view. From here, there is also another set of French doors leading to the rear garden. The adjacent UTILITY ROOM is unusually large and has plenty of space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, along with plentiful cupboard space, a large sink and access to a courtyard to the side of the property.
Continuing the ground floor accommodation, there is a large MASTER BEDROOM SUITE, which has a separate dressing area with built-in wardrobes on two walls, and an EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM with shower cubicle, hand-wash basin and WC.
On the FIRST FLOOR, a minstrel gallery forms the landing, which leads to the remaining accommodation. BEDROOM TWO is a double room with exposed timber beams and pleasing views over the rear garden. There is also a large FAMILY BATHROOM, which has a separate shower cubicle and bath, his and hers hand-wash basin and WC. There is also access to an airing cupboard from the bathroom, and additional loft storage accessed from the landing.
The front of the property is gravelled and provides an abundance of PARKING and access to a single GARAGE. A timber gate leads to both the rear garden and further parking. The leafy REAR GARDEN is the undoubted attraction of this property, with its far-reaching views of the sea and Portland; a stunning vista to enjoy from not only the lawned areas of the garden, but also from the patio immediately abutting the conservatory - perfect for entertaining. There is a private PATIO to the opposite side of the property and, on a practical note, there is also a fully insulated WORKSHOP with power and light, a GARDENERS WC, and a TIMBER LOG CABIN/HOME OFFICE also with power and light.
Discreetly located down a quiet lane between Rodwell and Wyke Regis, the property benefits from the absolute advantage of utter privacy, while being just two miles away from a range of amenities and transport links in Weymouth town centre. Also close by are spectacular walks and cycle rides to be enjoyed along the Rodwell Trail, from which you can enjoy glorious sea views. Weymouth itself is famous for the award-winning sandy beach abutting the Esplanade, and the imposing Regency buildings that flank the sea front. The state-of-the-art Sailing Academy and shallow waters of Weymouth Bay make it the ideal location from which to make the most of the water sports opportunities on offer.
From DOMVS' Preston office, turn right along Beach Road into Greenhill and onto The Esplanade. At the Jubilee Clock, turn right into King Street and carry on over the traffic lights and across the bridge, turning left at the next traffic lights into Westwey Road (A354) alongside the marina. At the next set of lights follow signs for Portland and ascend Rodwell Road ('Boot Hill'). Head straight through two sets of traffic lights; the road then turns, becoming Buxton Road. Proceed, and Green Lane (currently not named) is the second left after Whitecross Drive (immediately after Lydwell Close). The property is at the far end.
