THE most expensive home in the Weymouth area features a tennis court, gym and a lake – and it could be yours for £2,250,000.

Eastbrook House, a Grade II listed mid-19th century Italianate villa, is based in the scenic suburb of Upwey.

The eight-bedroom features landscaped formal gardens of approximately 1.8 acres with further land of approximately 4.44 acres arranged around a natural lake.

Property agents, Domvs, say Eastbrook House ‘sits in a tranquil setting on the southern edge of the village and the extensive grounds give excellent privacy.’

Entering the property, the entrance hall has a sweeping staircase to the upper floors and gives access to the principal rooms.

The drawing room faces south and west and features a moulded stone fireplace and French doors lead to the southerly garden area.

The sitting room also has a stone fireplace, with open windows which look out onto the garden. On the opposite side of the hall is the dining room and hatch to the kitchen/breakfast room.

Its kitchen/breakfast room has been modernised, with appliances including a dishwasher, two ovens, five ring gas hob and fridge. This room also features an adjacent pantry, which has room for multiple white goods, in addition to wall and base units and additional worktop.

The eight-bedroom property also features a sun-room overlooking the courtyard, an extensive games room, gym, office with a shower and steam room. There is also an integral garage which can house two vehicles together with considerable storage.

On its first floor, there are six bedrooms and three bathrooms. Its master bedroom has an attractive vista over the gardens as well as a discreet dressing room with well-equipped with storage, and the capacious en-suite bathroom provides twin basins, shower cubicle, bath, WC, bidet and heated towel rail.

The remaining two bedrooms are based on the second floor and are also quite spacious.

A cloakroom sits opposite the staircase to the second floor - traditionally the ‘servants quarters’ and now providing two double bedrooms. The property has a large basement which has access to a number of cold rooms.

A description of the property reads: “The overall plot is approximately 6.24 acres and creates an entirely engaging setting with the house being centrally located within the landscaped gardens which have been carefully designed to create individual areas of interest and include a discreet courtyard area immediately outside the gym/games room, a walled garden to the rear which is divided into three.

“One with a recently resurfaced tennis court, the other being an extremely well-stocked kitchen garden, and the last, formal garden, having been beautifully landscaped providing seating areas enjoying views of the two water features.

“Ornamental gates from the formal garden lead to the remaining area of land, representing approximately four acres, which has been purposefully designed to encourage wildlife with the creation of a lake, and planting of a copse, and woodland.

“There are two additional accesses to this area on the south and west boundaries. Included with the property are two detached properties.”

According to Domvs, two other detached cottages are available by separate negotiation if required.
