2 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Portland, DORSET


DOMVS, in association with Fine & Country, presents this stunningly located beach home. Vendors say, "To wake up to the sound of the waves is magical. We love our walks along the beach and collecting fresh scallops and crab from the fishermen at the end of the lane."



... to this most special of homes. 'Chesil Gallery' was, as the name implies, once a gallery showing unique artworks. It is now unique in a different way: occupying one of the most extraordinary positions on Chesil Beach, part of the famous Jurassic Coast and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Protected by Chesil Beach which rises beyond it, the property has direct access to the pebble bank itself from the first floor. The immediacy of being able to walk along the beach and enjoy this most spectacular of locations is what living at Chesil Gallery is all about. Sunsets and star-gazing on a moonlit night are amongst its special treasures.

Inside, the accommodation does not disappoint: the owners clearly have impressive design skills with the interiors now maximising the sense of space and light.

Walking into the dining hall at first floor level and observing the ground floor level below creates a striking and intriguing entrance, combining perfectly as an engaging entertaining space. An old timber staircase leads down to the sitting room, a welcoming room with a living flame gas fire adding an inviting note during the cooler months.

The open design seamlessly flows into the kitchen which has a range of hand-built timber cupboards offset by a Welsh slate worktop. A black, electric AGA sits alongside a conventional electric oven with gas hob, and a large butcher's block provides an extra food preparation area, still with plentiful space for a generous breakfast table to one end of the room, with French doors attractively framing one of the property's courtyards.

On a practical note, appliances also include an integrated dishwasher and two full height fridge/freezers. Just off the kitchen is a useful cloakroom, with WC and hand-wash basin.

To the other end of the property there is internal access to the garage. This space has double timber doors onto the lane, with sufficient space for a vehicle in addition to its current usage as a utility/store room, with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer as well as a sink, drainer and extensive cupboards.

There is ample space for a variety of uses such as studio or workshop, or for storing kayaks, bikes, wind surfers…

Returning to the first floor, a couple of steps lead from the dining hall to the snug which comes complete with an ensuite shower room with shower cubicle, hand-wash basin, WC and heated towel rail.

At the opposite end of the dining hall is bedroom two, currently used as an office: a lovely double room with views over Chesil Beach. It also has an ensuite shower room providing a shower cubicle, WC, hand-wash basin and heated towel rail.

Off the dining hall is an inner lobby with a staircase leading up to the master bedroom: a stylish and well-proportioned room with a range of built-in wardrobes and also enjoying views of Chesil Beach.

It also has an ensuite bathroom providing a bath with shower over, WC, hand-wash basin and heated towel rail.

Timber gates at each end of the property lead into two private courtyards with mature plants interspersing decorative paved and gravel areas providing an almost Mediterranean feel and offering an inviting, private space for outdoor dining. From each courtyard a gravel path runs alongside Chesil Beach to the main entrance to the property. The beach itself is reached by just stepping over the low wall which marks the boundary.

A further advantage is the rare provision of the large double garage with timber doors opening to Pebble Lane.

The isle of Portland is steeped in maritime history and offers stunning coastal scenery, beaches and a multitude of outdoor pursuits. Chiswell was traditionally a fishing village with locals launching their boats from Chesil Cove. Forming the southern end of Chesil Beach, a prominent feature is the sea wall (and its esplanade) which forms the bulk of Chiswell's coastal defences. The well-regarded Cove House Inn, in existence since the 1840's, is just a stroll from the Gallery and has exceptional seaward views.

An internationally renowned water sports centre, home to the National Sailing Academy and Portland Marina are a short walk away from the Gallery. Aside from sailing and boating, there is sea angling, wind/kite surfing, kayaking and diving. Chesil Beach and the Fleet Lagoon are internationally protected for their birdlife: the Chesil Beach centre hosts indoor and outdoor activities to discover the copious wildlife above and below the water and explore the wonderful lagoon. There are various independent shops as well as supermarkets on the island, with many eateries from nearby Quiddles to the award-winning Crab House cafe across the causeway. Transport includes regular and frequent daily bus services to nearby Weymouth with its award-winning sandy beach, where there is also a mainline London/Waterloo train station.
