A unique development of just 4 homes set in the Dorset County Town of Dorchester. The Quartermasters comprises a 3 bedroom and 3, 2 bedroom superior houses. The properties have been sympathetically designed respecting the tradition of The Keep and its setting, whilst recognising the demand for modern finishes and features. These properties are truly architectural gems.
Dorchester Town, Brewery Square and Poundbury boasts a wide and varied array of shops and eateries. There are many amenities and attractions in the local area including Maiden Castle, Cerne Abbas, the Tolpuddle Martyes Museum and Abbotsbury Swannery. The world renowned Jurassic Coast is only 9 miles away and closer to home there are numerous local walks taking in some of the local history with the Roman House and Borough Gardens close by.
The Keep was originally the gatehouse for the Depot Barracks of the Dorsetshire Regiment as well as the County Armoury. It was completed in 1879, in time for the amalgamation of 39th and 54th Regiments of Foot, who become the 1st and 2nd Battalions of The Dorsetshire Regiment in 1881. The Depot Barracks were the administrative centre for the Dorsetshire Regiment and its centre for recruitment and training. The Depot carried out this function between 1879 and 1958 with only one break. This was during World War Two when the barracks was used by the 701st Ordnance Light Maintenance Company and the 1st Quartermaster Company of the American Armed Forces. Today the Keep Military Museum is a striking landmark in the heart of Dorchester. Completed in 1879, it was designed to resemble a Norman Castle, and is built of Portland stone which gives it a white appearance.
