Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

The apartment sits on the north side of Weymouth's iconic inner harbour, and faces south west toward the sea. The building is the former 19th Century Templemans Mill which was damaged by fire in 1917 resulting in the fourth and fifth floors being removed. In the 1930's the Water Board remodelled the building to provide offices, and then a conversion to flats followed in the 1980's. In 2003 the current owners acquired the freehold and gained planning permission to re instate the upper floors. The results a of a four year programme of work speak for themselves. The domed roof can be seen from a variety of places within the town and harbour, and in a short time has become somewhat of a local landmark. The Penthouse is one of the tallest buildings in the town, and as such has some of the best views available. From the roof terrace and balcony above, one can see as far along the Jurassic coast as far as Lulworth Cove, and to Portland and the Channel.

The local and well regarded architect has designed a contemporary and open plan configuration, creating a real sense of size, light and space whilst retaining practicality and privacy for everyday living. An extraordinary quality of finish is readily apparent throughout this property, and it must be seen to be fully appreciated.

There is a state of the art Lutron intelligent lighting system, together with a CCTV system with four cameras. Gas fired underfloor heating has been installed and the kitchen and bathrooms are beautifully appointed. The property has a large private garage on the ground floor together with its own private entrance. A hydraulic lift exclusive to The Penthouse travels straight up to the 5th floor to the magnificent open plan living accommodation with a spiral staircase leading down to the 4th floor sleeping accommodation. A private staircase continues to the 3rd floor where it links with the stairs used by the remaining flats in the building, in case of emergency.

Weymouth's Georgian esplanade is just a short walk away. The town boasts a wide range of leisure and entertainment facilities, as well as plenty of shops on a charming network of cobbled streets.

The town 'swing' bridge leads across the harbour to the Hope Square, a pretty part of town with a small number of boutique shops, galleries, open air cafes and several restaurants.

Weymouth Sailing Club, the stone pier, Nothe Gardens, Nothe Fort, the picturesque Newtons Cove and beach are all within easy reach. Weymouth Golf Club is also nearby. There is naturally a wide range of watersports available, including the National Sailing Academy.

Road connections are good. There is a direct train to London Waterloo from Weymouth station with an approximate journey time from 2 hours 46 minutes.

The property has two primary outside spaces. A fantastic roof terrace can be accessed from both the lower floor hallway and also via the viewing room attached to the master bedroom. This terrace has ample space for outside entertaining, and it offers some of the most spectacular views over Weymouth Bay, the estuary and the marina. The living area on the upper floor has a "wrap around" balcony on the west and south sides, which offer similar views over the marina and the town beyond. The garage opens on to East Street making access easy, whilst the front door sits on St Helens Street affording privacy.
