CLICK ON OUR VIRTUAL TOUR. DOMVS, in assoc. with Fine & Country, is delighted to offer this FLEXIBLE property with considerable PERIOD DETAILING still in tact. Complete with two self-contained annexes, the property benefits from a large garden, double garage and wealth of parking.
Set back from Wakeham, down a secluded and private drive, it is clear even on approaching this incredibly handsome four-bed house that The Belenes is really rather special.
Walking into the impressive ENTRANCE HALL, you get the immediate sense of a generous, much-loved family home. There is also a guest suite, and annex, both of which would be perfect for rental income or guests.
The recently refurbished accommodation is undeniably well-presented, and provides two well-proportioned reception rooms, each with their own character. There is a SNUG – a truly charming and social space – with French doors opening onto a terrace, a fireplace with an electric wood burner, and an open aspect into the kitchen/ dining room.
The open-plan KITCHEN/ DINING ROOM is equally impressive, looking out onto the magnificent garden. Stunningly equipped, there is a range of contemporary wall and base-mounted units with granite work surface and integral sink unit.
Built-in appliances include two electric ovens a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and an induction hob with a stainless steel extractor hood above.
The dining area is a fabulous space for family get-togethers or parties. Airy, it is flooded with light from the orangery with glass ceilings used both directly above where the dining table is currently positioned, and again in the kitchen.
The adjacent utility room has space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, with an additional worktop and storage.
The incredibly versatile GUEST SUITE is well-appointed, with a very contemporary finish. The delightful KITCHEN/ DINING/ SITTING ROOM is complete with a wood burner. The suite also benefits from a CLOAKROOM, comprising of a hand-wash basin and WC. Upstairs, the bedroom is presented beautifully, with a roll top bath and shower above, hand-wash basin and heated towel rail.
There is also a sizeable study, a very appealing room that could be easily used as an additional reception room.
Walking up the charming staircase leads to an elegant, large sitting room with glorious views – from the balcony – out onto both the courtyard and beautiful garden, as well as an open fireplace with Portland stone surround.
There is an adjacent family bathroom.
The master bedroom suite is on the second floor. Large and airy, there is a dressing room and an en-suite, wet room.
Moving onto the third floor, we find a further double bedroom, with its own en-suite.
The ANNEX is approached from beyond the guest suite. This charming and flexible space, oozing with old-school style, with its own access onto the rear garden. The kitchen/dining/sitting room is light and airy, with French windows opening onto the terrace that abuts the garden's pond. The double bedroom has its own en-suite, with a wet room, WC and basin.
The principal garden faces the south west. This large garden is, simply put, made for the green fingered. The large, level lawn is well-screened by mature trees that stretch from the two-levelled terrace that abuts the property. There is a border of interesting and rare trees, shrubs and plants.
There is a tranquil "secret garden", which was once home to a previous owner's tennis court, but now boasts a pond and compost area. A further pond, maintained beautifully, sits close to the property. The front garden has a gravelled area with stone paths and stocked borders together, with raised stone borders in addition to a large greenhouse. Accessed from the drive, there is an area with extensive parking and a detached stone double garage with electric roller door. This lies east of the house and is located on the private drive.
There is also plentiful parking and a double garage.
Wakeham is a quaint area of period properties close to the ever-popular village of Easton on the Isle of Portland. Easton offers a selection of local shops, a large supermarket, small park, no less than four churches, and several other amenities. Nearby is enchanting Church Ope Cove, once a famous smuggling beach and now a favoured sheltered beach for swimming, with diving access to the numerous wrecks in the surrounding waters. At the foot of the island is the National Sailing Academy (venue of the 2012 Olympic Sailing events), and the main road to nearby Weymouth.
Upon reaching Portland, follow the A354, signposted 'Through Traffic'. As the road heads up hill, continue on the A354, following signs to Fortuneswell and Easton. At the Portland Heights Hotel roundabout, take the second exit to stay on the A354 for Easton. Bear left at Easton Square onto Straights, which then becomes Wakeham, where a drive down to the property can be found on the right-hand side.
