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.

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.

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.
