There is also bespoke coving throughout. From the dining room, double doors open into a most impressive kitchen/family room with a stunning fitted kitchen and central island. The kitchen offers an extensive range of integrated appliances including induction hob with 'downdraft' extractor, fridge/freezer, a split level pyrolytic double oven, ‘Fisher & Paykel ice and water refrigerator, and dishwasher. The kitchen is finished with a Franke sink, granite worktops, limestone flooring and dishwasher and enjoys the luxury of ‘Sonos’ ceiling fitted music speakers. Above the kitchen is a useful and very large loft/storage space.

The ground floor also offers a utility room with further integrated dishwasher, a study with fitted workspace and contemporary fitted cloakroom.

On the first floor are three bedrooms, all enjoying delightful views with bedroom 4 featuring a small balcony. Shower room with a hand basin, low level wc and a quality fitted double shower cubicle.

On the second floor is the master bedroom suite, a most impressive addition to the house, offering a triple aspect with far reaching views across the surrounding area to the sea and Portland. There is a high quality en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, bidet, W/C and sink with vanity unit.

The excellent specification of the property also includes double glazing, a gas fired central heating system, oak internal doors and photovoltaic roof panels, providing an excellent feed-in tariff.

Externally to the front of the house is a brick paved driveway providing off road parking together with paved patio and
flower borders. Pedestrian side access via a red Cedar coded timber gate leads to the rear.

The rear garden which is enclosed by Portland stone walling and red cedar fencing has been professionally landscaped and designed for ease of maintenance. Immediately adjoining the rear is an Indian sandstone paved patio leading onto a small garden stocked with an abundance of shrubs and plants, raised stone flower bed with bay tree, circular patio area and a small vegetable plot. The newly converted well insulated ‘Den’ with power and heating, offers flexible additional accommodation, ideal for an office, studio or playroom.

Please note; The garage at the rear of the property is currently being used as a studio but could easily be converted back to create a garage with vehicular access gained off Whitehorse Drive.



Verlands Road is set within the much sought after Preston area and on the edge of the charming village of Sutton Poyntz. The area is about 3 miles to the north-east of Weymouth and is well served with a wide range of amenities including chemist, doctor's surgery, delicatessen, general store/post office mini supermarket and two public houses, all of which are within walking distance of the property.

The picturesque village of Sutton Poyntz is a short walk with an attractive duck pond, pub/restaurant and easy access to some lovely walks across the surrounding down land. The Mill House and Sutton Mill in the centre of the village were both used by Thomas Hardy in his novel 'The Trumpet Major' as the setting for Overcombe. The coastal resort of Weymouth provides the opportunity to enjoy a range of sailing and water sport activities, with beaches and walks along the Jurassic Coastline. The County Town of Dorchester is about 4 miles away and offers a comprehensive range of shops as well as cultural, recreational and educational facilities. Both Weymouth and Dorchester also provide main line rail links to London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads.
