Full description

An impressive family home occupying a plot of about 0.4 acres situated just 350 yards from the beach at Greenhill and within 0.75 miles of the town centre.

Wessex House is an exceptional family home, being set back from the road and approached via a long drive. The house which has been well maintained by its current owners boasts an immaculate interior which has been extended to provide spacious well-proportioned accommodation ideal for modern family living and entertaining.

On the ground floor there is a welcoming entrance hall that extends into an open plan fitted study area. There is a cloakroom and a door opening through to the main reception area which is split level and enjoys a dual aspect. This spacious room features a sitting room to the front with a fireplace housing a gas fire and a step-up to a square arch leading into a spacious drawing room to the rear overlooking the garden. From the sitting room double doors open into a modern orangery which is flooded with light from a lantern style roof window and bi-folding doors which open to both front and rear garden terraces. There is a formal dining room and a kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of bespoke solid wood wall and floor mounted units with granite work surfaces, a breakfast bar and integrated appliances including dishwasher, tumble dryer and extractor hood. There is also a freestanding ‘Britannia’ range style cooker with a 6 ring gas hob. A door opens into a useful utility/store room which houses the boiler and has plumbing for an automatic washing machine. There is also a door to the rear garden and ‘French’ style doors opening to the front.

On the first floor the master bedroom and two of the guest bedrooms enjoy the luxury of en-suite facilities. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Externally there is a large lawn garden to the front with well stocked floral beds, mature shrubs and a private raised sun terrace. A brick paved driveway provides ample off road parking and access to a detached double garage with power, lighting, two up and over doors and a first floor studio room with power, lighting and electric heating.

To the rear there is an enclosed lawn garden with a raised garden pond, well stocked floral and shrub beds, a brick paved seating area and a sunken paved sun terrace. Both the front and rear gardens are serviced by a ‘pop up’ sprinkler system.



The property is well positioned to enjoy this lively seaside resort. The beach at Greenhill is within a short walk, as are beautiful Greenhill Gardens, the popular Lodmoor Country Park and RSPB Nature Reserve.

There are a good range of local amenities within a few hundred yards at Lodmoor Hill including a Post Office, Mini Supermarket, Bakery, a Public House and is just a few yards from Weymouth College.

The town centre is within 0.75 miles and provides a comprehensive range of shopping and educational
facilities as well as access to a large sandy beach and a stunning picturesque harbour which is surrounded by a number of boutiques, eateries and café/bars.

The area is surrounded by rolling countryside and is well dispersed with foot and bridle paths giving access to many areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in particular, those along the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. From the house a walk along the Preston Beach promenade leads to Bowleaze Coveway, where you can enjoy a range of water sports pursuits or join the Coastal Path to Osmington Mills.

Weymouth also benefits from rail links to both London and Bristol as well as access via the relief road to the County town Dorchester.
