Property description

Inside
Built circa 1800 as stables and renovated some 29 years ago into an attractive and well presented three bedrooms detached cut-stone cottage situated in a peaceful village style cul-de-sac. The accommodation provides a light and pleasant lobby entrance leading into the spacious and comfortable sitting room, with an impressive brick central fireplace with inset electric coal effect fire, deep bay window and French doors leading out to the tastefully designed courtyard. The attractive and recently fitted kitchen has ample kitchen floor and wall units all in neutral colours, incorporating glass fronted cabinets, plate rack, one-and-a half gas and electric cooker, stainless steel bowl and combination boiler. Stairs rise up to the first floor landing where, there are three bedrooms all with a light and pleasant ambience and fitted wardrobes; two are doubles and one single. The bathroom has a bath and with an overhead aerial shower, vanity wash-hand basin with storage cupboards under and WC.

Outside
The front driveway constructed of marshal style bricks and has space to park two vehicles, leads around to the rear private and sunny courtyard. Surrounded by beautiful cut-stone walls, flower beds, stone seats, outside lighting and water fall feature makes this a great low-maintenance area to enjoy al-fresco dining.

Location
Weymouth, famous for the award-winning golden sandy beaches of the Esplanade and for the imposing Regency buildings that flank the sea front, is the proud host of the 2012 Olympic Sailing events and is approximately 2 miles distance. The state-of-the-art Sailing Academy and the shallow waters of Weymouth Bay make it the ideal location from which to make the most of the water-sports opportunities on offer along the world famous Jurassic coastline. Weymouth’s bustling Marina is home to a fascinating array of sea-faring craft, and the nearby harbour with its working fishing port is well served by fashionable restaurants and bars. Travel to the continent is also on the doorstep with daily Sea Cat crossings to The Channel Islands and St. Malo.
