The Property
An opportunity to acquire a magnificent apartment that has been most sympathetically designed and executed within this significant Edwardian building, with seamless addition of a most sensitive extension entirely in keeping with the ethos of the original design. “Tilia House” sits on the northern side of Queen’s Avenue at its eastern end, approximately ½ mile from the town centre and Brewery Square, a vibrant new quarter in the heart of Dorset’s County Town Dorchester. “Tilia House” is amongst the first 4 houses to have been built in this pre-eminent wide lime-tree lined avenue, one of the early large buildings which define the character of this important premier road in Dorchester and sited within the conservation area. The original building has been designed with great flair. This Edwardian house is delightfully detailed and believed to have been designed by the Crickmay Partnership and is dated between 1890-1903. The palette of materials used to construct the original building are most attractive, sourced from a limited range of natural materials. The walls are of clay facing brickwork. To the first floor, in places there is decorative tile hanging, together with decorative ridge tiles and finials. Guttering has been replaced with mock cast iron. The thoughtful extension reinforces the symmetry and reflects the impressive character of the original building whilst enhancing both its significance and appearance. “Tilia House” comprises a collection of just 6 engaging and magnificent apartments. These stylish apartments can be accessed from the impressive arched entrance, or alternatively from the new inner courtyard. The apartments are arranged over 3 floors and serviced by feature passenger lift, or otherwise the large graceful central stairway rising to the first floor, before splitting into twin elegant staircases accessing the upper floor

The Location
The County Town of Dorchester Dorchester is a historic market town sitting on the banks of the River Frome and between the towns of Bridport and Weymouth. Dorchester is a vibrant town for both shopping and sightseeing. There is a traditional Wednesday market, in addition to an increasing number of quality chains and independents, plus a wide range of services and entertainment. Moments away from the thriving High Street, is one of the most exciting retail redevelopment projects in the UK, at Brewery Square. Two cinemas, arts centre and a range of festivals, markets, clubs and associations cater for every interest. Steeped in history, the town has no less than 8 museums. One of Europe’s largest Iron Age forts, Maiden Castle, has some of the best preserved Roman ruins. The later history of Dorchester features several prominent literary figures. Thomas Hardy is undoubtedly the best known figure associated with the town. Hardy once worked for Crickmay Partnership, the architectural practice that is believed to have designed “Tilia House”.
