Tenure: Leasehold

The Old Rectory once formed part of the original historic County Hospital, designed in Jacobean style by renowned architect Benjamin Ferry. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the hospital garnered much financial support from wealthy local businessmen, members of parliament, the nobility, and even royalty! In the early 20th Century, two notable sons of Dorset, poet Thomas Hardy and royal surgeon Sir Frederick Treves, were said to be keen supporters of the hospital. In more recent years, The Old Rectory was utilised as a school of nursing and as one of Dorchester’s premier health clubs.

This sense of history is evident within this elegant development, with the period detailing sensitively preserved. Each of the apartments has been carefully designed, creating a unique sense of place.

THIS ONE IS APARTMENT 5 ON THE FIRST FLOOR.

Offering outstanding standards of style and finish, the light and airy interiors provide contemporary open-plan living together with the exceedingly rare advantage of private parking.
