Fleet House is a wonderful 17th Century stone house, typical of the period waterside property found along the Jurassic Coast. Full of character and period features, the accommodation is extremely light with many rooms being dual aspect.

The large open plan kitchen/dining room makes this property ideal for a family and for guests, and is well-configured overall making it very flexible. The kitchen, with its wonderful sea views, has a good range of cupboards, units and a breakfast bar. French doors open out onto a terrace. The sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace with a working open fire and adjacent bread oven. The exposed beams combine with the window seats and casement windows to give this large reception room a cosy feeling. There is also a utility room, cloakroom and rear lobby off the kitchen.

On the first floor is the master bedroom with excellent storage, ensuite bathroom and a balcony to enjoy the sea views. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

There is an excellent two-bedroom annexe which has been cleverly converted using part of a large garage building. A good size reception room with kitchen area and shower room along with two bedrooms above, make this ideal as overflow accommodation or a potential revenue stream. There is also a large single garage and a store room.

Fleet House is located on the edge of the sought after village of Fleet which is named after the Fleet lagoon behind Chesil Beach on the Jurassic Coastline. Weymouth is approximately 2 miles away which has a wide range of leisure and entertainment facilities, as well as plenty of shops on a charming network of cobbled streets. Road connections are good and there is a direct train to London waterloo from Weymouth station which takes approximately 2 hours 46 minutes.

This is an ideal location for enjoying both the coast and countryside with the famous South West Coast path on your doorstep, the National Sailing Academy in Portland and also Weymouth Golf Club.

There are many independent schools close by which include Sunninghill Preparatory School in Dorchester, Sherborne School for Boys and Girls,

Lewiston, Milton Abbey and Bryanston.

A tree lined gravel driveway leads to a large parking area with space for several cars. The house is surrounded by extensive grounds of about 2 acres overall. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with various beds and banked gardens and woodland.

Adjacent to the house is a 'wrap-around' terrace which makes the most of the sun throughout the day. A brook which runs down the side of the drive passes the house and the terrace, giving a tranquil feeling to this outside eating area. There is an enchanting area of woodland with the brook running past it and also two paddocks leading down toward the beach.

The banked gardens have a pathway leading up to a fantastic summer house whose view is one of the best of the various sea views of the property.
