About the property

SPACIOUS FIRST FLOOR APARTMENT OFFERING CHARACTER FEATURES AND ALLOCATED PARKING

THE DEVELOPMENT

A spacious first floor one bedroom apartment forming part of this unique development of 7 homes set in the Dorset County Town of Dorchester. The Quartermaster Stores comprises of 5 superior town houses and 2 apartments. The properties have been sympathetically converted, respecting the tradition of the Keep and the original Quartermaster Stores and its setting, whilst recognising the demand for modern finishes and features. These properties are truly architectural gems.

HISTORY The Keep was originally the gatehouse for the Depot Barracks of the Dorsetshire Regiment as well as the County Armory. 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 it's 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 were 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.

The communal front door gives access to the entrance hall and stairs leading to the first floor, with a private door to No.7.

The open plan living area boasts high ceilings, with three front aspect sash windows flooding the room with natural light and a historic feature fireplace. The kitchen includes a range of wall and base units with worktops over and integrated appliances to include, fridge/freezer, electric oven, induction hob and extractor hood over, with space and plumbing for a washing machine. The bedroom enjoys a rear aspect with a fitted storage cupboard and an en-suite shower room, with a modern white suite.

The property has been decorated using heritage colours to compliment the history of the building and benefits from allocated parking to the front.

Viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate the location and character of this exclusive development.
