The site is said to be of ‘archaeological interest’, so you might want to pick up a metal detector and a trowel if you invest in this five-bedroom architect-designed circular property in Portland, Dorset.
Sitting in 1.5 acres of land (which was purchased off the Crown in 2007 and has a gun placement within), the house was designed and built by unnamed local architects with an eye on taking advantage of the uninterrupted sea views. Some finishing off is required on the site, but the house and location certainly have a ‘wow’ factor.
The house is said to have been built to the highest specification, including walnut doors, air source heat pump under floor heating, Austrian triple glazed windows, a Meile Kitchen, sound system cabled throughout the house and much more. So you’ll not be short of the finer things in life. Head in via an oak door into the lobby with wide timber staircase and access to the first bedroom (or multipurpose room) with triple glazed French doors out to the garden and en-suite, as well as a utility area, plant room and study.
Head up to the first floor via the previously-mentioned staircase and you’ll find a semi-circular lounge / kitchen / entertaining space with bespoke (and appliance-packed) Miele Kitchen, two rear aspect triple glazed double patio doors and four rear aspect triple glazed full length windows to take in those views. Moving on from there and you’ll find a bathroom, master bedroom with en-suite and views across Lyme Bay, four further bedrooms and another en-suite.
Outside is plenty of land and within it, outbuildings including a former cook house, a workshop and a one-bedroom cottage. You’ll also fins two garage, a shed and a ‘sweeping’ driveway. The land apparently needs landscaping and finishing, so you will need something put back after you’ve agreed a price around the £925,000 mark.
