Tenure: Freehold

A fascinating and historic period waterfront property with uninterrupted views over Weymouth Bay and the Jurassic coastline

The Customs House is a fascinating and rare waterfront property originally owned and run by the Port Authorities and having been used as the Customs and Watch House at the entrance to Portland Port. The property is understood to have been built in 1890, with ornate brick elevations and quoins, sash windows and some nice detailing in stone above the main entrance. The property was converted for residential purposes some years ago and more recently has been totally refurbished to an extremely high standard, now offering stylish, spacious, contemporary style accommodation with superb views over Portland Harbour. From the property there is access to an upstairs viewing gallery and roof terrace which further enhances the superb views and has great potential for further extension subject to the necessary planning consent.

The property has access from the road to both a boat shed and double garage and to the rear there is a most attractive, enclosed, landscaped garden with decking. From the garden there is gated access to Castletown beach where the property has a beach storage hut on land leased from the Crown Estate. The lease includes the right to keep a small boat/tender on the beach. The view from the garden is uninterrupted and panoramic and quite literally within feet of the shoreline.
