Property details

Inside

Welcome to this unique Grade II listed property nestled on the scarp slope above Fortuneswell, on the Isle of Portland. It has claims to enviable views across the Portland Harbour, Chesil Beach, Weymouth Bay & beyond. A highly versatile property which has retained many features, and which has potential to be sympathetically transformed into a distinctive, individual home or modernised for continued multiple apartment living. This building was originally the rectory to St. George’s Church at Reforne, Easton (C18). It later became a private hotel, and by the end of the 20th century had been converted into several dwellings. The rectory, along with its boundary walls, became Grade II Listed in May 1993. It was bounded on the southside by the Merchants Railway which was used to transfer stone from the Portland stone quarries to the waterfront for transport. The railway remained in use until 1939. The route is now a public footpath.

The current arrangement is as follows:

From here there are three double bedrooms, two of which have excellent sea views. The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM has an ensuite shower room. The KITCHEN has a range of wall and base level units, with space for appliances. The FAMILY Jack and Jill BATHROOM with splendid sea views, is of generous proportions and comprises a panelled bath, low level W.C and wash-hand basin. The large SITTING/DINING ROOM is double aspect, allowing for plenty of natural light and enjoys the expansive sea views.

From the inner hall there is a family sized BATHROOM and a large DOUBLE BEDROOM with walk-in wardrobe.

APARTMENT 2
The front door opens to a small hallway off which there is a small galley kitchen with serving hatch to SITTING/DINING room. An INNER HALLWAY leads to a separate UTILITY ROOM and SHOWER ROOM. BEDROOM ONE is a good-sized double with views over Chesil Beach. BEDROOM TWO is a narrow room and has access onto the west facing patio. There is also a second entrance to the property facing the front garden. The basement is accessed from Apartment 2 and the Garden. It has four separate areas and is of a significant size for storage.

Outside

With traditional boundary walls and crenelations (also Grade II listed), the property is nestled in a wooded area and is bordered on the south side by the Merchants Railway. There are four garage units constructed, one for each of the apartments, all of which sit at the end of the private drive to the main house.

The house is approached via garden gates facing the private drive with parking spaces set to one side. Two large Sycamore trees sit within the front garden. Each apartment has its own front door. Steps rise to Apartment 4 and front doors to Apartments 1A and 2 are accessed from the front garden.

Location

From its elevated position, the property enjoys 180-degree sea and coastal views. Surrounded on all sides by sea and small cove beaches, Portland's dramatic cliffs and rugged terrain are a popular retreat for climbers, bird-watchers, and ramblers alike. Local amenities include a petrol station and Tesco supermarket. Weymouth lies just across the causeway, where shopping and dining facilities abound, together with walks around the harbour, marina, and award-winning beach, plus rail links to London Waterloo.
