THE PROPERTY

8 Albert Terrace is a delightful terraced cottage which enjoys an enviable, tucked away position within Fortuneswell and just a short stroll to the world famous Chesil Beach, with sea views from several of the rooms. The property is believed to date back to the mid 1800s and still features many hallmarks of this period of architecture including high ceilings, bay windows, exposed floorboards and a handsome fireplace in the sitting room. However, despite its age and wonderful character, the property is not listed and therefore benefits from many modern conveniences including gas fired central heating, uPVC double glazed windows and contemporary fixtures and fittings, particularly in the bathroom which has been greatly improved and reconfigured under the current ownership. Owing to its superb position, spacious accommodation and easily maintained, sun-trap garden, this highly endearing home is ideal for a broad variety of purchasers including those seeking a permanent home by the beach, a coastal part-time retreat or a tucked-away holiday let.

Internally the accommodation is well proportioned with a wealth of natural light throughout. The front door opens into an entrance porch which in turn leads into the expansive yet comfortable open plan sitting/dining room with fabulous exposed floorboards, a bay window and excellent built-in storage beneath the stairs. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen, which is fitted with modern units providing ample storage and spaces for the usual appliances, and an adjoining lean-to boot/store room. The four bedrooms are arranged over the upper two floors and are all well-proportioned doubles with charming exposed floorboards, whilst bedroom 1 is of particular note owing to its bay window to the front aspect, from which the sea views can be enjoyed to their fullest advantage. Also on the first floor is the family bathroom which has been enlarged and transformed by the current owners and now offers a luxurious atmosphere with contemporary fittings including a claw-foot, roll top bath, separate shower, WC and wash hand basin.

OUTSIDE

The front and rear gardens at 8 Albert Terrace are very easily maintained, being primarily paved, but still provide a fantastic setting for spending time out of doors, particularly in the walled courtyard to the rear which is a charming, sheltered sun trap and also benefits from the sea views.

There is on-street parking to the front (subject to availability).

SITUATION

Albert Terrace enjoys a tucked away position within Fortuneswell which both boasts a broad range of everyday shopping, leisure and healthcare facilities with a promenade edging Chesil Beach and the dramatic Jurassic coastline.
