2 Bedroom Apartment For Sale

An attractive and spacious two-bedroom, two bathroom apartment with parking, situated in an impressive Grade II building located in central Dorchester.

This stunning first floor duplex apartment forms part of a block of eighteen apartments converted from the former Dorchester Hospital in 2001. The original building was designed by Benjamin Ferrey of Christchurch who was a famous architect and one of the earliest members of the RIBA. Construction commenced in 1839, having stone elevations under a tiled roof, extending to three floors and featuring stone mullion windows.

Situated to the rear of this Grade II Listed building, Flat 15 enjoys a quiet location, providing well-proportioned, light and airy accommodation, with some very high ceilings and large windows and has since been refurbished by the current vendors with two recently fitted bathrooms and gas combination boiler.

There is a very attractive communal entrance with tiled floors, post boxes, stairwell and lift access.

Once entering the apartment you walk in to a hallway with double storage cupboard and a door opens on to the sitting / dining room which is a light room with 2 full length windows letting in a wealth of natural sunlight. There is an area for a dining table and an opening to the kitchen. The kitchen has been fitted with plenty of base and wall mounted storage cupboards with built in appliances including dishwasher, washer / dryer, fridge and freezer, double oven and gas hob with extractor over.

On this floor there is a large double bedroom with cupboard housing the combination gas boiler and a door to the contemporary tiled ensuite with walk in double shower.

Stairs rise from the sitting room to a spacious mezzanine dining / sitting room with 2 sky lights giving natural light. Also on this floor, is a fully tiled family bathroom with bath and shower over, a linen cupboard and a large bedroom with window with low window seat and built in wardrobe. Additional stair case rises from the hall to the landing on the upper floor.
