Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A selection of beautifully implemented and contemporary styled 4 bedroom eco-friendly houses in a development of 58 sustainable homes. Officers Field brings the best of modern family living to Portland.

The Property
The development is split into two parts, the upper and the lower - each with specific benefits and features. Almost all the homes benefit from great coastal views and many of the homes are situated around the green. All homes are very individual and are finished to a high specification with hand selected interiors. The homes are built using quality materials and constructed to Code Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. They incorporate sustainable technologies such as biomass district heating, wood pellet stoves and rainwater harvesting. This means these homes are very cheap to run.

The homes were utilised by the athletes for their accommodation during the successful 2012 Olympic sailing events.

Living In Portland
The rugged "Isle" of Portland is the perfect place for those who just want to get away from it all. Nestled alongside the classic seaside resort of Weymouth, with its beach and idyllic leisure harbour, Portland's peaceful way of life is the perfect antidote.

The home of the 2012 Olympic sailing events Portland, located on the World Heritage Coast, is an explorer's Island with curiosities of history and folklore just waiting to be discovered. Joined to the mainland of Weymouth by the Chesil Beach and a public road bridge, the Isle has scenery and a quality of isolation which contrasts dramatically with lively Weymouth. The island has a good range of amenities including: schools, local shops, a new supermarket, leisure centres and a selection of restaurants and pubs. There are great facilities for outdoor pursuits from water-sports to rock-climbing. Officers Field is within a short walk of the shops at Fortuneswell and Osprey Quay Leisure Centre with its swimming pool, gymnasium and squash courts. Just over the road is the attractive Victoria Gardens and skate park. The national sailing centre, a state of the art new marina, recreation areas and a variety of excellent dining venues are within a few minutes' walk. A new primary school and nursery is currently under construction and is opening adjacent to Officers Field in early 2013.

Located on the World Heritage Coast, the stunning location of Officers Field offers the perfect mix for family living.

It's very rare to find an area that offers so much to see and do. On the coast yet not far from the countryside; near the energy of Weymouth but a leisurely walk or short drive from the isolated splendour of the Jurassic Coast and only a few miles from the rolling countryside, affording limitless opportunities for the walker, rider, biker and sightseer.

The tiny island, linked to the mainland by a causeway, is approx. four miles long. It forms the southern most point of Dorset and has successfully retained much of its natural charm, being the central point on the World Heritage designated Jurassic Coastline.

Nearby Dorchester, Poole, Bournemouth, Exeter and Christchurch are all easily accessible by road and train and an extended network further inland to other major conurbations.

Sustainability Features
The homes at Officer's Field are built to Code for Sustainable Homes level 4. This means that they are much less damaging to the environment than normal homes.

Their carbon footprints are 44% smaller than similar homes. This is achieved with better insulation and partly by using highly efficient District Biomass boilers. The Code level also means that the houses feature a range of water efficiency measures, reducing water bills by around one third. This includes aerated taps and showers, and importantly, it means that the houses collect rain water to flush the toilets, instead of using expensive drinking water. There is also the option to install Photovoltaic panels at a later date at a smaller cost as the homes are all 'Home Generation Ready'. As well as these energy and water measures, the materials used are low-impact, meaning that you can enjoy a warm home with a clear conscience.

External Features
o Allocated parking and/or garaging for each dwelling

o High quality landscaping to communal areas

o Landscaped and turfed rear gardens with a range of planting

o Natural Portland stone walls to public boundaries
